"8 years to the day when Bush put on that costume and falsely declared "Mission: Accomplished." " "A moment of silence for all who died on 9/11." "So much death and destruction in the last decade... Let's hope this decade is led by actions like those in Tunisia and Egypt..." ... continue reading

How I Got to Madison, Wisconsin

Early yesterday morning, around 1:00 AM, I had finished work for the day on my current "project" (top secret for now -- sorry, no spoiler alerts!). Someone had sent me a link to a discussion Bill O'Reilly had had with Sarah Palin a few hours earlier about my belief that ... continue reading

VIDEO: America Is NOT Broke

America is not broke. Contrary to what those in power would like you to believe so that you'll give up your pension, cut your wages, and settle for the life your great-grandparents had, America is not broke. Not by a long shot. The country is awash in wealth and cash. ... continue reading

Why I Support the People of Thompson, Canada -- And You Should Too

To people down here in the U.S., Thompson, Canada and its fight with the Brazilian mining giant Vale may seem very far away. It's not. (Don't be embarrassed if you need a map to find Thompson, though -- blame the U.S. media, which will only tell you about Canadians if ... continue reading

Another WikiLeaks Cable from the Bush Administration About My Movies

Twice within four days, my name has popped up in the Bush-era secret cables uncovered by WikiLeaks. Lucky me. Though nowhere near as earth-shattering as the uncovering of American misdeeds in Iraq and Afghanistan, these classified cables provide a stunning and bizarre peek into the paranoid minds of the Bush ... continue reading

¡Viva WikiLeaks! SiCKO Was Not Banned in Cuba

Yesterday WikiLeaks did an amazing thing and released a classified State Department cable that dealt, in part, with me and my film, 'Sicko.' It is a stunning look at the Orwellian nature of how bureaucrats for the State spin their lies and try to recreate reality (I assume to placate ... continue reading

Imagine if the U.S. Post Office had just shut down, leaving its almost 800,000 employees without a paycheck. And then imagine Wal-Mart was planning to lay off two-thirds of its workers -- or 1.2 million people -- by Christmas. What would they do? And what would two million more people ... continue reading

Five Questions the Mainstream Media Won't Ask About the Wikileaks Release

251,287 secret State Department cables, released into the public domain by Wikileaks! You'd think this amazing treasure trove of inside dope would prompt the media to ask some real questions.

How Corporate America Is Pushing Us All Off a Cliff

When someone talks about pushing you off a cliff, it's just human nature to be curious about them. Who are these people, you wonder, and why would they want to do such a thing? That's what I was thinking when corporate whistleblower Wendell Potter revealed that, when "Sicko" was being ... continue reading
