Statement on Disney Joining Forces with the Right Wing
Michael Moore responds to news that Disney--which refused to distribute Fahrenheit 9/11 because it didn't want to be involved in politics during an election year--is teaming up with Move America Forward, the group that tried to keep Fahrenheit 9/11 from reaching movie theaters across America.
"Disney joining forces with the right wing kooks who have come together to attempt to censor Fahrenheit 9/11 must mean that Dumbo is now in charge of the company's strategic decisions. First, Disney tried to stop the movie from being released and now it is aligning itself with the very people who are trying to intimidate the movie theaters from showing the movie. Even Donald Duck would tell you this makes no sense. This latest development only further disproves what Michael Eisner had claimed about 'politics' not being behind Disney's decision not to distribute Fahrenheit 9/11."
