Eight minutes later, King besought his viewers to go see Moore's "Love Story," regardless of their political views: "Agree or disagree, 'Capitalism: A Love Story' is one heck of a documentary. We saw it. You should see it- again, whether you agree or disagree, you should- you should see it."
The director posted a Tweet  about his appearance on the CNN program, and returned the favor to King: "He [King] saw 'Capitalism,' called it 'excellent' and told his viewers to go see it. A legend and a nice guy.'"
Despite his obvious bias against the American free enterprise system, Moore did have a word of criticism towards his fellow leftists on the issue of the Tea Parties, after King asked him about them: "I think everybody has a right to get involved....I don't know how much that's being funded by certain interests associated with the health care industry, but- nonetheless, these are people who are standing up for what they believe in, and liberals should quit complaining about that and say- you know- hey, we're the majority. Where are we? Why- why aren't we going to the town hall meetings? Why aren't we standing up for these things?"
