The Economist has some stinging criticism of the collection of essays that make up the new book, Michael Moore Is A Big Fat Stupid White Man by David T. Hardy and Jason Clarke, two bloggers.
I can only agree with the Economist’s position. Although I have not read the book, I have a good idea of its content from reading the bloggers in question.
It ends on the intellectual high note, Go to hell, Mikey. This level of argument is hardly the sort of thing to sway anyone who does not already share the authors maniacal dislike of Mr. Moore. Indeed, their loathing leads them not only to ad hominem attacks but also to exaggerate Mr Moores influence.
Its heavy-handed and self-congratulatory manner utterly defeats its purpose.
