I thought he wasn't driven by profits?

Doesn't Michael Moore the man who has exploited liberal ideology to line his pockets claim he has no interest in profits?

At least multimillionaire Michael Moore didn't have the chutzpah to sue Harvey and Bob Weinstein in a court in New York City where they're based. Because I bet there's no way a jury in the urban center that suffered through the attack on the World Trade Center twin towers would give Moore a penny. Today, Moore filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and fraud arising out of his audit of his controversial war on terror documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. Moore is seeking at least $2.7 million from the Weinstein Brothers in what he claims are "rerouted" and unpaid profits. Why is it I think Harvey has finally met his match in Michael, and vice versa? The Weinsteins have already paid Moore $19.8 million for his backend profit participation in the movie.

  • Guess America isn't such a bad place after all. He should thank his lucky stars he lives in the U.S. where he has the ability to sue at all

  • well he is a person too and every person needs money in this world not going to bash him for making money or suing, suing mcdonalds for your self spilling hot coffee is dumb.

  • How can someone who publicly and repeatedly told people to watch pirate copies of his movies online, because all that mattered was that they watched them, then try to turn around and claim he was shorted money? He openly encouraged people to pirate his fakeumentaries and take money away from the Weinsteins. He's lucky they aren't suing him.

  • Funny how he made another mockumentary about the evils of capitalism and now is exploiting the very thing he claims to detest. LOL, an inconvenient truth. I can't believe people aren't sick of this blow hard yet.

  • If someone stole money from him they stole money from him, that has nothing to do with capitalism.

    I guess theft is okay as long as it's from someone you don't like.

    The word "rerouted" is what should be throwing up red flags for anyone. Sounds more like he's trying to renegotiate a contract after the fact than actually has a claim for outright "theft".

    But don't you see...he CARES, so no matter what he does, it's okay. If you CARE about liberal causes you can make as much money as you want but it's okay. Only conservative people aren't allowed to be rich, because they are evil and don't care about anyone but themselves and their rich country club friends.

    He has lost popularity in the US. But they love him overseas. Other countries love to hear an American (if we can actually call him that) tell them how stupid Americans are. In this country he cuts down conservatives and in other countries he cuts us all down. But he is a true capitalist who found his niche.

  • He makes these movies then laughs all the way to the bank at the number of liberals he has fooled into believing his B.S.
