Morgan Spurlock doesn't fact-check

"Fat is deadly. Obesity-related illnesses will kill around 400,000 Americans this year--almost the same as smoking." Or maybe not quite that deadly..., but who wants something like facts to get in the way of a good statistic?

Besides fact-checking is for lesser beings, not for documentary film-makers, or at least that is the theory that some of them (coughMichaelMoorecough) seem to operate under.
