Did Morgan Spurlock find Osama bin Laden?

CaptureI don’t really have any interest at all in watching a movie about some guy going around the Middle East looking for anything, much less a cowardly, murdering, maniac… but that being said, the "Poll" MSNBC put up with this post does annoy me.

I can’t imagine that they could have worded this much differently to assure they would get the results they were looking for.

Choosing "No way, this is just hype.  The Bush Administration is doing all it can to find the man" as an answer almost assures that anyone that thinks poorly of the Bush Administration (for ANY reason) will pick ANY choice other than this one.

But that’s fairly typical of main stream media.  They tell us what they want us to know, and (try to) lead us to the conclusions they think we should make.

A much more fair poll would have simply had three choices:

  1. Yes.
  2. No.
  3. I don’t know


Rumors are flying that filmmaker Morgan Spurlock of "Super Size Me" fame may have done what the United States government has failed to do for the last six years — find Osama bin Laden.

  1. @Ike – while I really enjoyed Grosse Pointe I have to agree with you – it wasn’t his best work!  "Better Off Dead" just got my vote as well 🙂

  2. Who cares about whether Morgan and Osama are BFF?

    "Better Off Dead" is only running in second place in the MSNBC vote for "Best John Cusack Movie Evar."  OMGWTF?!?  It is losing to "Grosse Pointe Blank"?
