Michael Moore's Terrifying Death Threat

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Michael Moore appeared on the "Today" show Tuesday to discuss his new memoir, "Here Comes Trouble," with Savannah Guthrie. Moore discussed the aftermath of his famously controversial speech at the 2003 Oscars and the effects it had on his family.

Moore used his acceptance speech that year to speak against the Iraq War, which had just started, and to accuse President Bush of going to war based on fictitious premises. He was roundly booed.

Guthrie said that, in the book, Moore "seem[ed] to come very close to offering regret for saying that."

"None at all, actually," Moore said. "If I have any regret, it's what it out me and my family through as a result of the amount of hatred that was generated on a certain news channel and on AM hate radio. They encouraged people to essentially commit acts of violence against me." He said that he was ultimately proved correct when it became clear that there were no WMD's in Iraq, but that it took a tremendous toll on his life and caused him to employ security guards.

"Do you still use that security today?" Guthrie asked. "Do you still feel that threat, that danger?"

"It's not a feeling," Moore said, going on to list a series of what he called "assaults" against him, including one where a person was trying to blow up his house. >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
