Mike Wilson (born February 18, 1976) is an American documentary filmmaker, known for the 2004 documentary Michael Moore Hates America.[1][2]

Wilson is a writer for Andrew Breitbart's Big Hollywood.[3] He owns Odd Lamps Productions, a company that creates political commercials for candidates across the country, including US Senate candidates Chuck DeVore, Joe Miller and US Representative Chip Cravaack.[citation needed]


Wilson reported that he got the idea to make Michael Moore Hates America because he felt Bowling for Columbine had misleading facts and offensive, false statements made by Moore. Wilson has stated in interviews that he was inspired to make Michael Moore Hates America after many in the mainstream media reported his works as fact, rather than works of opinion.[4][5]

During the press tour for Michael Moore Hates America Wilson made an appearance on a segment of The Daily Show with Samantha Bee.[6]

In a 2009 interview on the podcast "Double Feature" he released new information about another project called Marlon's Hands and a documentary on boxing called Northern Fights.[7]

Wilson lives in Minneapolis with his family.[citation needed]
