Summary zThe Canadian filmmaker Debbie Melnyk travels to Michael Moore's hometown of Flint, Michigan, population 18,000. Once a flourishing small town with a high per capita income, it disintegrated economically when General Motors left and no longer provided jobs. Michael Moore's first documentary "Roger and Me" dealt with GM's desertion of Flint and its consequences. It points out certain facts, which the filmmaker later proves to be incorrect, such as Moore never having met up with Roger Smith, the then General Manager of GM. The writer Christopher Hitchens points out Moore's "liberal use of facts". (From Canada, in English) -- website
