FILM-CANNES-MICHAEL MOORE
(2007-05-22)
(wgvu) - IN CANNES FRANCE, MICHAEL MOORE IS A ROCK
STAR.
THE MICHIGAN NATIVE IS MOBBED BY FANS AT THE FRENCH FILM
FESTIVAL, ASSAILED BY CAMERAS AND FORCED TO RUSH MEALS BETWEEN
INTERVIEWS.
MOORE'S DOCUMENTARY "SICKO" IS A HARSH ATTACK ON THE U-S
HEALTH CARE INDUSTRY AND IS THE TALK OF THE FESTIVAL.
MOORE TELLS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS THAT THERE'S AN URGENT NEED TO
REFORM AMERICA'S HEALTH SYSTEM.
HE SAYS THE GOVERNMENT IS FUNDED BY PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES AND
HEALTH INSURERS, AND THAT'S WHY THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT IS AFTER
HIM FOR HIS TRAVELS TO CUBA.
THE DEPARTMENT ISN'T COMMENTING.
