The clip the-worst-place-to-live from Roger & Me (1989) with Michael Moore. Powered by: Anyclip. any moment from any film. The people of Flint had been through the wringer. Then came the lowest blow. Money magazine declared Flint the worst place to live in all the country. The chamber of commerce and local beer distributors decided to take a stand. They would burn Money magazine. I came to burn Money magazine, because Flint's my adopted city. I've lived in plenty of cities, and this is one of the best. There's plenty of things to do. The economy isn't that bad off. We're all hard workers and survivors, and I support Flint. This is to tell people that Flint is our hometown. There's no way on God's green earth it's the worst place to live in the country. A lot of people say there's nothing to do in Flint. ''Ha! '' I say. I mean, how many cities have their own PGA Tour event? Not that many. We have one right here. How many cities have an air show the size we have? How many people have parks, rivers and trees... and huge colleges like this over here? Not that many. We've got a lot going for us, and don't ever forget it. One good way to start out would be with a song... about another industrial city that has seen hard times. The Boss, Bruce Springsteen, singing a song about his hometown. Burn, Money, burn! That smells like Gary, Indiana. Don't let anybody tell you you live in the country's worst place. They're wrong! Good evening. I'm Ted Koppel, and this is Nightline.
