Moore Liberal Elitism

According to Page Six, Michael Moore isn't exactly the Flint, Michigan man of the people he would otherwise have you believe he is.
June 7, 2004 -- MAYBE Hollywood loves Michael Moore, as we reported the other day, but it seems that unless you are Meryl Streep, Susan Sarandon or Martin Scorsese, Moore doesn't love you. When left-wing organizers and civil rights activists call Moore's office to see if he will lend his voice to different causes supposedly close to his heart, they are snubbed. "You get to speak to a Christine, who then refers all calls to Moore's personal assistant Jason Pollack," one activist told PAGE SIX. "But unless you are a star, your call never gets returned." It recalls other anecdotes about Moore, who — despite his man-of-the-people posture — is known to be high-handed with underlings and as demanding as any diva. "Moore has become totally smitten with the Hollywood glamour and just loves his newfound niche in Hollywood," said our source. "A word to the wise, Mr. Moore, get ahold of who called Jason Pollack and return those calls, or you may find yourself with a pie in your face." Meanwhile, Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" will have its first U.S. screening — hosted by Moore's agent, Endeavor head Ari Emanuel — tomorrow night in L.A. for celebs coming from the Laker game: Leo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson and Harvey and Bob Weinstein.

Hmm, who else does this remind you of????
