I Love The NHS

Jim Kenefick runs MooreWatch, an anti-Michael Moore website. Recently, he wrote about his wife's illness and the amount of money needed to get her treatment. Of course, a cheque soon arrived from a mysterious benefactor.

To cut a long story short, The NY Daily News did the necessary to discover who the cheque was from and, surprise surprise - it was Michael Moore. Kenefick has turned the whole event into a bit of spin - claiming that Moore simply must have an agenda, that this could only be preparation for a PR move. Hmmm. I don't know how Moore could ever have owned up to this. There may be some mention in Sicko of his charitable giving, there may not be - soon we'll see, with the Cannes premiere rapidly approaching, but I doubt very much that the secret origin of this particular donation is discussed.

Most importantly, though, note that no other moneyed reader of Kenefick's site came forth with the necessary donation. Not even to try and beat Moore to the punch. That's an important detail.
