Reporter Confronts Michael Moore at 'Occupy Denver': 'How Are You Helping These People with Your $50 Million?'

Moore Lashes Out At CBS4 Over Wealth Questions

Filmmaker and activist Michael Moore joined a growing crowd at the “Occupy” Denver protest Thursday evening, but his encounter with CBS4 left him fuming when he was asked about whether he represented the “99 percent” that the protesters stand for, or the “1 percent” they claim to be rallying against.

He appeared in Denver for a book signing event and visited the demonstration at Civic Center Park just before 6 p.m.

Moore said a few words to the crowd and then was escorted by two security guards in an SUV to the Tattered Cover’s Colfax location for his “Here Comes Trouble: Stories From My Life” book signing at 6:30 p.m.
