Bowling For Columbine deceitful? [Apr. 2nd, 2003|12:12 pm]
Chaz Meyers
It seems as though Bowling For Columbine was one big lie. I had not intended on seeing it, despite receiving an Acadamy award, but now I must say I'm now disinterested in seeing it. There are few things I dislike more than an intentional deception of facts.

Now that I think about it, part of me is a bit more intrigued by this movie now. Kind of torn, really. :)

From what I read from the article, he spliced parts of different speeches together to put together phrases Heston didn't say, and strongly implied, if not flat out said, that particular speeches took place at different times. If that's the case, I would say that's flat out lying, if not slander. It's one thing to try to get a point across, but when you misrepresent what people say like that, I believe a line of ethical journalism is being crossed.

I do agree that most things on a website should not be taken at face value. I plan on checking up on all those sources they cited. :)
