Michael Moore Producer Sending Film Crew to Iowa to Cover Rubashkin Sentencing


mooreA documentary producer who has worked extensively with infamous 9/11 filmmaker Michael Moore is picking up the cause of Reb Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin whose sentencing will take place Tuesday in Iowa.Meghan O’Hara, nominated for an Oscar for her work with Mr. Moore on the health-care documentary Sicko, said she is sending a film crew to Iowa this week to interview locals and to attend the sentencing by Judge Linda Reade.

Reb Sholom Mordechai faces up to 25 years – an unusually harsh sentence – following a federal raid against Agriprocessors. The F.B.I. raided Agriprocessors in May 2008 and arrested 389 workers who lacked proper documentation. Many said that Reb Sholom Mordechai has been unfairly treated and faces a sentence that is absolutely disproportionate.

Ms. O’Hara, whose company Honest Engine is investigating the case, said while Mr. Rubashkin is “easy to vilify, it’s the conflicted characters who are always the most interesting.”

In addition to working with Mr. Moore on Sicko, she also has served as a producer on Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 911.

  2. This guy lies about everything and is a crazy radical. Nothing good can come of it. Stay far away. Syug lchochma shtikah.

  3. #7:

    Even among those reviewers who like his work, the consensus is that he twists the facts until they no longer represent the truth.

    It’ll be bad news. Just the part on ritual slaughter will probably grow a whole new crop of antisemites.

  4. Michael Moore is the lowest of the lowest. He is bad news. We must pray this does NOT happen. He is an antisemite to the worst degree.
