Michael Moore, author of "Here Comes Trouble" talks with Rachel Maddow about President Obama's call for closing tax loopholes and higher tax rates for the extremely rich and the treatment of liberals by the media.

Michael Moore: "Can you imagine if a thousand tea partiers had been arrested in front of the White House? It would be the top of every news story. People are down on Wall Street right now holding a sit in and a camp in down there, virtually no news about this protest. This goes on with liberals and the left all the time, and it gets ignored. Fortunately, there are shows like yours and others who aren't ignoring it, but it doesn’t mean that it isn't happening and it will continue to happen."
