Is "Bowling For Columbine" More Important Than "Innocents Betrayed"?
Submitted by: William for Liberty

"If 'documentary' means 'a factual presentation,' "Bowling for Columbine" is anything but. The very title reflects one of Moore's many false claims: that the Columbine High School killers were so casual about their deeds that they went bowling just before committing mass murder. It never happened." ...

" 'Bowling for Columbine' cost $3.2 million to make -- that's more than 32 times what JPFO has been able to raise for our documentary, 'Innocents Betrayed.' " ...

"But sadly we don't have that kind of support. Money flows to the left from corporations, governments, foundations, and wealthy individual donors. The victim-disarming left is buying public opinion with its millions."

"Meanwhile, too many people on our side think that freedom is free."
