Michael Moore owns a part of Halliburton

I have known it from Alex Corvus’s blog:

He refers to some news that are told by newsmac.com:

Filmmaker Michael Moore has made a career out of trashing corporations and said he doesn’t own any stocks due to moral principle.

How then did author Peter Schweizer uncover IRS documents showing that Moore’s very own foundation has bought stocks in some of America’s largest corporations – including Halliburton, other defense contractors and some of the same companies he has attacked?

In his blockbuster new book “Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy,” Hoover Fellow Schweizer reveals the glaring contradictions between the public stances and real-life behavior of prominent liberals including Al Franken, Ralph Nader, Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi. [Editor’s Note: NewsMax has a free offer for “Do As I Say” – Go Here Now.]

But he reserves some of his sharpest barbs for Moore.

  • In his first documentary “Roger & Me,” Moore skewered General Motors, Schweizer points out.
  • In “The Big One,” he went after Nike and PayDay candy bars.
  • “Bowling for Columbine” was an attack on the American gun industry.
  • Oil companies played a major role in “Fahrenheit 911.”
  • His upcoming film “Sicko” pillories drug companies and HMOs.
  • On his television shows “TV Nation” and “The Awful Truth,” he criticized HMOs and defense contractors.
  • He once said that major defense contractor Halliburton was run by a bunch of “thugs,” and suggested that for every American killed in the Iraq war, “I would like Halliburton to slay one mid-level executive.”

Publicly, Moore has claimed he wants no part of these companies and won’t own stock.

In his book “Stupid White Men,” he wrote: “I don’t own a single share of stock.”

He repeated the claim in a 1997 letter to the online magazine Salon, saying: “I don’t own any stock.”

It seems he is not the only Hallibuton’s “owner”. Soros manages a fund that owns $252,500.
