Moore, Damon, and the Truth

Sergeant Peter Damon, a veteran who lost both arms in Iraq, is suing Michael Moore for his portrayal in Fahrenheit 9/11. Damon also appeared in Michael Moore Hates America, which we reviewed here. The review describes a special scene with the veteran. Finally, this SwanBlog post talks about Damon throwing out the first pitch at a Red Sox game.

I may have more to say in the future about the merits of the lawsuit. For now, I will say that it is interesting that Moore obviously has lawyers combing over every inch of his scripts, allowing him to say as much as possible without getting sued. I am surprised that the lawyers let Sergeant Damon's depiction slip through.
