The nativity gospel that underpins Moore’s entire personal mythology is like a gloss on that old Hellman/McCarthy feud: “Every word is a lie, including ‘working class’ and ‘Flint.’”
Yes, his family worked at GM but he grew up in the comfortable, all-white bedroom community of Davison. (His dad retired at 53; see “middle class,” above.) Moore lasted one day at his only assembly-line job.
