Coverage of Michael Moore's credibility

Two self-described “left-wingers" from Canada, Debbie Melnyk and Rick Caine, did a documentary of Michael Moore entitled “Manufacturing Dissent.” Although still fans of Moore to some extent, the two are disillusioned with Michael Moore's methods and the film is apparently not very complimentary of the Fahrenheit 9/11 director and attacks his credibility. In doing a search on CNN's web site I found one AP article on March 13th. Fox gave it more notice with the same AP story on March 11th, a London Times article on March 5th, and mention in three other articles, plus a video clip. Here are the articles:
