We just received word that Michael Moore will appear on Oprah on Tuesday June 5th where he will present, for the first time on television, scenes from his new film, Sicko.” Oprah will interview Michael about the movie and the attention it’s receiving before its release. And get this — the theme of Oprah’s show is “The one film you must see this summer” Apparently, Oprah loved Michael’s film and wants to make health care for all one of her main missions this year.
With Oprah behind Moore, there is no stopping him. I mean, isn’t Oprah’s audience essentially a bunch of lemmings? She says buy a book, they buy a book. She says see a movie, they… well, you know. And I’m not saying this is a bad thing, especially in this case. Sicko hits theaters on June 29th.
