  •  What exactly do you want him to do? (8+ / 0-)

    Should he just stay home and not communicate his thoughts anymore because it may be construed as interloping?  Communication is his lifeblood.  That's what he does. And capitalism is not necessarily a bad thing, btw.  He's a filmmaker and a very successful one. He's brought to light dozens of issues that you or I would never have been exposed to otherwise.

    What's the beef?  That his tent is bigger?  Go be a successful filmmaker and live in a pup tent and donate all profits to charity if that is the issue.  Most diaries here are promoting something, even if only the diarist's view.  And of course, we are his target customers.  Who in their right mind wouldn't address their target "customers" whether in a business or even in a social endeavor?  

    Whether you like him or not, it seems unfair to classify him as equivalent to what I'd refer to as a carpetbagger.  He's participated plenty on a variety of issues, and more than many others who are pushing their agenda.

    I'm buying the movie.  Then maybe he'll be able to finally update that hall bathroom he's been fretting about.

    Left is right and right is wrong.

    •  I'm not suggesting he do anything (0+ / 0-)

      differently.  I like some of his movies.  I am just charecterizing his fleeting interest in blogging here and other places as advertising.  He's interested in promoting his viewpoint when he happens to be selling a movie.  Like I said in my comment, it doesn't make him a bad guy or make his opinions less valid.
