Yeah, I think of what I do as a work of journalism. It’s more like the op-ed page, though. These are my opinions. My point of view. The opinions are mine and I let you make up your own mind.
I take much of the attacks and the criticism toward me as being very class-based, but as Americans we don’t like to acknowledge that reality.
There’s a gullible side to the American people. They can be easily misled.
I tell everybody on the first day of making a movie that if anyone’s here to further their career, they should leave. I’m gonna make the movie in such a way that we won’t have a career when this movie comes out. Because the people who hold the moneybags are not going to want to share any of that money with us to make the next movie!
Four hundred obscenely wealthy individuals, 400 little Mubaraks – most of whom benefited in some way from the multi-trillion-dollar taxpayer bailout of 2008 – now have more cash, stock and property than the assets of 155 million Americans combined.

You do not have the right to take another human’s life, unless it’s in strict self-defense.
We all need to be huge supporters of the theatrical documentary.
If anything, I don’t have to convince the American public that we have a broken health-care system. I think the majority of Americans since they have to go through that health-care system, already know it.
For a documentary filmmaker, I do very well.
