Michael Moore’s site has been hacked. It’s the cyber equivalent of how Moore behaves in his documentaries.

In case a fix is quickly made, here’s the text that replaced Moore’s usual dreck:

Mr. Moore, your documentary "Bowling for Columbine" is fictitious, not factual. David Hardy's Truth About Bowling is simply damning. You deliberately deceive your viewers, who are only expecting a slightly biased factual report. Mr. Moore, my personal hope is that you publicly apologize, not for your ideas, but for dubbing your lies the truth.

Please see

Love always,

NHA Crew.

The Emperor's secret minions are finally earning their keep! ;)

Moore's hackers also noticed some of the attention they were getting, so before the site was restored they tacked on this clarification for everyone: "This message is meant to be apolitical."

I doubt if the Mikey Mouse Club will see it that way.

Pity they didn't hack a little lard off that enormous ass of his. Zing!

Well, it's not cool, it really isn't. But at least they didn't put up a bunch of porn and such.

Damn. I'm so uptight about this stuff. When I got hacked I was so mad, I don't wish this on anyone. Especially because now Moore will be able to claim to be a victim of the forces of darkness who oppose free expression.

Hahaha, gold. I just went to the link and it looks like they went all the way to re-installing apache on the webserver. Whatever them hackers did, it musta been uber nasty.

But I think Moore might have more hackers on his side than right wingers do. Hackers arent exactly known for their love of capitalism/consumerism.

I think you've seen too many movies.
