 Michael Moore, Ugly American (washingtonpost.com)
Michael Moore can handle verbal abuse from the conservative pundits in America, but harsh words from Pete Townshend, lead guitarist for The Who, may hit closer to his liberal heart.

  CBC.ca Arts - Disabled vet sues Michael Moore for $85M
Peter Damon, a National Guardsman from Middleborough, Mass., says Moore twisted excerpts from an interview he gave to NBC's Nightly News to portray him as anti-war.
Damon claims that Moore never asked for his consent to use a clip from the interview. The clip, which shows him talking about an "excruciating type of pain," referred to pain from his injuries, rather than a complaint against the war effort, he says.
Damon contends that Moore's positioning of his image just after the congressman's comments makes him appear as if he feels like he was "left behind" by the Bush administration and the military.
