Give the people the truth: Michael Moore Wins Cannes Top Prize
Truth wins at Cannes, says Moore:
'Many people want the truth put away, put in a closet,' he said, 'and you have taken it out of the closet.'
Quoting President Abraham Lincoln, whom he described as 'a different kind of Republican president,' Moore said, '`Give the people the truth and the republic will be saved.''
Alluding to the U.S. election in November, Moore concluded by saying he wanted to dedicate the next six months to 'making sure that those who have died in Iraq have not died in vain.'"
