Michael Moore Says U.S. Newspapers ‘Slit Their Own Throats’

Filmmaker Michael Moore accused American newspapers of “slitting their own throats” in a news conference in Toronto on Monday where he was promoting his new film, “Capitalism.”

It’s not the Internet that has killed newspapers, the gadfly documentarian said in a four-minute detour from talking about his film, which rejects capitalism as “undemocratic.”

Instead, he said, it’s corporate greed. “These newspapers have slit their own throats,” he said. “Good riddance.”
