9780141021386: The Official Fahrenheit 9-11 Reader

From director and political activist Michael Moore, The Official Fahrenheit 9/11 Reader is the official companion to the Oscar-winning documentary that broke box-office records around the world. Fahrenheit 9/11 is the scorching cinema sensation that's sent waves of shock and awe across the globe. Here Michael Moore gives you the full, explosive transcript of the smash hit that's got President Bush running for the hills - with extra out-takes that never made it to the final cut. He fires back at critics with his own 'Fact Bible' to prove that it's all true, and gives us just a taste of the buzz that's made this movie torpedo all predictions and become a worldwide phenomenon. Author of international bestsellers Stupid White Men and Dude, Where's My Country, Michael Moore's 2002 film Bowling for Columbine won the Anniversary Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and the 2002 Academy Award for Best Documentary. His 2004 film Fahrenheit 9/11 won the 2004 Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, and is the highest-grossing documentary of all time. Released in 2007, Moore's documentary Sicko, focused on the American healthcare system, was nominated for an Oscar.

from Fahrenheit 9/11 -- The Screenplay

PART I

Fahrenheit 9/11 --

The Screenplay

Narrated by Michael Moore

Fireworks and confetti fly through the air as a triumphant Al Gore cheers at a podium with FLORIDA VICTORY sign in background -- he is flanked by celebrities

NARRATION

Was it all just a dream?

AL GORE

God bless you, Florida! Thank you.

NARRATION

Did the last four years not really happen? Look, there's Ben Affleck, he's often in my dreams. And the Taxi Driver guy, he was there, too, and Little Stevie Wonder, he, he seemed so happy, like, like a miracle had taken place. Was it a dream?

Or was it real?

It was election night 2000, and everything seemed to be going as planned.

News clip montage

TOM BROKAW (NBC NEWS)

In New York, Al Gore is our projected winner.

DAN RATHER (CBS NEWS)

The Garden State is green for Gore.

We project that Mr. Gore is the winner in Delaware. This state has voted with the winner.

Excuse me one second, I'm so sorry to interrupt you. Mike, you know I wouldn't do this if it weren't big. Florida goes for Al Gore.

JUDY WOODRUFF (CNN NEWS)

CNN announces that we call Florida in the Al Gore column.

NARRATION

Then something called the FOX News Channel called the election in favor of the other guy.

BRIT HUME (FOX NEWS)

I interrupt you, FOX News now projects George W. Bush the winner in Florida and thus it appears the winner of the presidency of the United States.

NARRATION

All of a sudden, the other networks said, "Hey! If FOX said it, it must be true!"

TOM BROKAW

All of us at the networks made a mistake, and projected Florida in the Al Gore column. It was our mistake.

NARRATION

Now, what most people don't know is that the man who was in charge of the decision desk at FOX that night, the man who called it for Bush, was none other than Bush's first cousin John Ellis. How does someone like Bush get away with something like this.

News clip of Bush cackling

NARRATION

Bush brothers sitting on plane

Well, first, it helps if your brother is the governor of the state in question.

GEORGE W. BUSH

You know something, we are gonna win Florida. Mark my words. You can write it down.

NARRATION

Shots of Katherine Harris, Database Technologies, and voters at polls

Second, make sure the chairman of your campaign is also the vote countin' woman and that her state has hired a company that's gonna knock voters off the rolls who aren't likely to vote for you. You can usually tell them by the color of their skin. Then make sure your side fights like it's life or death.

JAMES BAKER (FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE, BUSH LAWYER)

I think all this talk about legitimacy is way overblown.

CROWD PROTESTING FLORIDA RECOUNT

President Bush! President Bush!
