Stories have been circulating that Michael Moore's bodyguard was arrested for bringing a gun into JFK airport. A denial was put out today by the firm that employed the bodyguard:
Our full-time employee, Patrick Burk, is not "Michael Moore's bodyguard." Accordingly, the headline in the Fox News Web site story is false and misleading. If you believe Patrick Burk was ever assigned to protect Michael Moore, or any number of other public figures, you might accurately report that "A bodyguard who was once assigned to protect Michael Moore..." You could as accurately say "A bodyguard that was once assigned to protect President Clinton," because Patrick Burk has also been assigned to protect President Clinton in the past - but you wouldn't be accurate if you said "President Clinton's Bodyguard."
I think that it is still interesting if Michael Moore has in the past used bodyguards who carry guns.
