Disney Forbidding Distribution of Film That Criticises Bush

Disney is blocking [BugMeNot] its Miramax division from distributing Fahrenheit 911, a new documentary by Michael Moore that harshly criticises the retarded monkey boy. Disney is pushing the family friendly card, total bollocks considering Miramax is their adult arm that releases kiddie flicks like Pulp Fiction. It’s more likely that Disney is scared the film might jeopardise tax breaks [BugMeNot] granted to Disney for its theme park, hotels and other ventures in Florida, where Jeb Bush is governor. If that is the reason for Disney’s move, it would underscore the dangers of allowing huge conglomerates to gobble up diverse media companies

    How come Miramax has been allowed by big Boss Disney to produce the controversial movie but is now forbidden to distribute it ? Would that be a try to shut up Moore or just make more advert before releasing the movie “under the media’s pressure” ? Also make wonder about the so famous “American Freedom of Speech” ?!
