Alleged News Item: Controversial documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is accusing Apple Inc. and AT&T of using the iPhone to distract attention from his new movie Sicko, which opens in US theaters on the same day the hyped phone goes on sale. "This is an appalling display of greed and jealousy," said Moore after a recent screening of his new movie. "Apple and AT&T obviously don’t care about fixing America's healthcare system. They only care about how many iPhones they’re going to sell."
Asked why he chose to attack Steve Jobs of Apple rather than, for instance, Bruce Willis of Live Free or Die Hard, opening at the same time, Moore replied, "What, are you nuts? John McClane would beat the living shit out of me and I'm fresh out of airline tickets to Cuba."Posted at 7:38 AM to Bogus History
