Filmmaker Michael Moore was on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” last night, and he got into a spirited debate with Morgan about CNN’s coverage of the disaster. With regard to Ali Velshi‘s coverage from New Jersey, Moore said:
“I was watching Ali out there, in Atlantic City, and my first thought is, why is CNN trying to kill Ali Velshi?”
Moore also said that CNN should have been showing video from Breezy Point, NY, where over 100 homes were destroyed by a fire. As it happens CNN did have reports from Breezy Point. Velshi would call in to talk to Moore about the reports.
