Any long time reader of this blog knows I Hate Michael Moore. I despise him with every fiber of my being. He's the biggest piece of shit behind the camera. If he spent an equal amount of time checking facts as he does at Wendys then maybe his mockumentries wouldn't suck so much. Get a load of this bit of news. Are you ready for a shock? Michael Moore lied to us. I know, I know, I couldn't believe it either. It seems that this whole Fahrenheit 911/Disney thing was a sham. Recently Moore claimed that Disney pulled the plug on his newest piece of trash on Monday in a blatant attempt at political censorship. From what I heard it was because of something between Jeb Bush and Michael Eisner and a tax break or credit or something. But in a CNN interview Moore said he knew that Miramax, a subsidiary of Disney, had pulled out a year ago. That they really had no intention of distributing the film. That's shock number one. Here's shock number two. The New York Slimes supports Moore. You could have knocked me over with a feather. In an editorial piece yesterday, the Slimes denounced Disney for censorship and denial of Moore's right to free expression. My question. Where was the New York Slimes when movie companies were denying Mel Gibson's The Passion Of The Christ? It took him something like a year or more to find a company who would distribute it. Was that not censorship and denial of Gibson's right to free expression? Oh wait. Of course. Gibson's movie was about religion and didn't accuse Bush of lies and crimes. So that's okay. For a second there I forgot the Hollywood Rules.

Rule 1. If your film shows contempt for evil, racist Republicans, it's good.
Rule 2. If your film show Republicans in ANY WAY as being good, decent or smart, it's trash.
Rule 3. If your film shows religion in a bad light, it's okay.
Rule 4. If your film shows religion in a good light, it's evil.
Rule 5. If your film shows the U.S. military in ONLY a positive way, it's bad.
Rule 6. If your film shows the U.S. military in ANYWAY negative, it's good.
Rule 7. If your film shows America in ONLY a good, positive way, that wrong.
Rule 8. If your film shows America as the evil, oppressive place we know it to be, it's a hit.
