Michael Moore.com : Mike\'s Message

Michael Moore.com : Mike\'s Message Disney Has Blocked the Distribution of My New Film... by Michael Moore Friends, I would have hoped by now that I would be able to put my work out to the public without having to experience the profound censorship obstacles I often seem to encounter. Yesterday I was told that Disney, the studio that owns Miramax, has officially decided to prohibit our producer, Miramax, from distributing my new film, \""Fahrenheit 9/11.\"" The reason? According to today\'s (May 5) New York Times, it might \""endanger\"" millions of dollars of tax breaks Disney receives from the state of Florida because the film will \""anger\"" the Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush. The story is on page one of the Times and you can read it here (Disney Forbidding Distribution of Film That Criticizes Bush)."
