As Moore was leaving the Occupy Denver protest to go to a book signing he was confronted by a correspondent at KCNC-TV, the local CBS affiliate.
The reporter asked if his rumored wealth made him part of the one percent the "Occupy" movement was protesting against.
"I do very well," he replied, "Because I do well, I want taxes raised on people who do well, including mine."
But when asked how he is helping the protesters with his $50 million, Moore said, "I don't have $50 million," before growing exasperated and telling the reporter, "You're just punk media is all you are. You lie. You lie to people. Stop lying to people. Stop lying."
When asked again, "Are you not part of the one percent?" he replied, "Just don't lie, OK?"
