The Disney/Michael Moore story: The Other Side
Most of my more liberal friends are all twitterpated over Disney's "censoring" of Mirimax and the Michael Moore film "Fahrenheit 911". But according to this article, Moore isn't exactly lilly white in this controversy...
Michael Moore Lied About Disney Ban
Apparently the decision about the film was made over a year ago, and Moore knew about it all along. And Mirimax's role in the film was financing, not distribution. Most of the New York Time's information (the "source") was from Moore's agent. Sounds like someone's trying to generate some heat prior to the Cannes Film Festival.
I'm not saying that Disney was right or wrong in deciding not to back the film, nor whether the decision to do so was politically motivated. Let's just not hold up Michael Moore as the "defender of truth" that so many want to make him out to be.
