I doubt Moore gets paid more than Karl Rove did. We need all opinions presented on campus and not just conservative ones. Way to go!

It’s an entirely student run group who, in the past, have brought numerous other controversial figures from fields and parties.The GU administration has nothing to do with it, If you know anything about student groups on campus, you’d know they can’t afford to pay $50,000 for any speaker. From what I’ve heard, the Lecture Fund doesn’t even get a yearly budget of $50,000. Additionally, Moore will not speaking to spark controversy at this event but will be discussing his career, not his opinions. Please don’t make such rude, judgmental comments unless you have all the facts straight. If you’re going to withhold your donation to your alma mater over something as trivial as a speaker, you clearly didn’t learn much while you were here.

I agree that more reasoned debate is always better, and believe me, I’m not a fan of Michael Moore (primarily for the reasons you state), but at least he’ll be blunt.

So, at the very least, they’re fair & equitable when it comes to semi-ignorant hotheads.

Petraeus. ‘Your conservative friends’ are less prone to marching around screaming against someone they find distasteful. Maybe it’s because they have better manners. I’m sure frequency of showering is correlated as well.

I guess that would make a good story for your next project.

And yes, I am trying to watch the Jersey Shore and I can’t – cause SaxaNet DOES NOT EFFIN’ WORKS!

I’m not objecting to him because of his POV. I’m objecting to him because he’s an Alyskyite – dishonestly presenting half facts and outright lies and appealing to emotion rather than reason. As I noted in my comment, hire competent, reasoning people from both sides of the issue to present reasoned analysis supported by facts and I will not object. But if Georgetown is going to squander $50,000 on Michael Moore, they’ll do it with someone else’s money, not mine. There are plenty of other worthy causes other than Georgetown to which I can donate my money.

@ALUM hes an idiot, but he’s kind of a big deal. The Mortara center, tocqueville forum etc. are more focused on brining academics etc. for meaningful discussion. Lecture fund occasionally even brings movie stars. I think thats more their intention. I would not mind if say, Rush Limbaugh came. he’s a big name, it would be fun. Also, I would like your money
