This is a draft posting for colleague review only. Please do not publish without permission. The paper explores the possibility that the movie Fahrenheit 9/11 led to "backlash" or "boomerang" influence (in other words, the exact opposite of what was advocated by Michael Moore). This follow-up article to Propaganda & Fahrenheit explores three possible reverse-persuasion routes that may implicate Moore in Bush's successful 2004 bid for the presidency.
