Actually, is about lies they believe Moore told outside the film. But a lot of them, it seems to me, are misunderstandings. Like Pete Townshend said that Moore claimed he wouldn't let him use a song for political reasons, then changed his mind, but Moore didn't use it anyway. Townshend says he never changed his mind.

But even Townshend admits this negotiation was between his people and Moore's people, not between him and Moore personally. So did Moore lie, was he misinformed by an employee who bungled a negotiation, or did he make a mistake? Or was Townshend lying himself to save face?

I don't know, and neither do the folks at moorelies. It's just a random blog of people looking over every statement Moore has ever made and finding any one where he was mistaken, and saying "ooh! he lied about his pants size/hug with Tom Daschle/handshake with Jon Stewart!" Biggo Dealo, DougR!
