Sorry if this might be clone, didn't see it in search. Found it over at Sigforum.com [b]to be released during the 04 election season... [url]http://www.drudgereport.com/mdisney.htm/[/url] MICKEY MOORE: DISNEY TO FINANCE NEW BUSH-BASHING DOCUMENTARY DISNEY's modern-day magic kingdom has room for all: Now joining Mickey and Minnie and Pooh bear and Goofy -- is Hollywood badboy Michael Moore, the DRUDGE REPORT explains. The WALT DISNEY CO. is set to spend millions financing a new explosive Bush-bashing documentary from Michael Moore [BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE] -- a documentary which claims bin Laden was greatly enriched by the Bush family! DISNEY, via subsidiary MIRAMAX, has agreed to cover the production costs, said to be in the millions, of Moore's planned FAHRENHEIT 911. "The primary thrust of the new film is what has happened to the country since Sept. 11, and how the Bush administration used this tragic event to push its agenda," Moore explains. FAHRENHEIT 911 will be released during the upcoming presidential election cycle. [More Moore in '04.] The director claims he will document on film how the "senior Bush kept his ties with the bin Laden family up until two months after Sept. 11." Moore will also scrutinize, in graphic detail, why America is so disliked abroad. With DISNEY financing now secure, Moore, who once railed against corporate media interests, may appear at this week's Cannes film festival in France.[/b] I don't follow Drudge, or know much about him, but if this is true, mikey morelies needs more than just a few jeers! What an asshole, and Disney/Miramax funding it? Come on!

from that link:
Moore's unflattering Bush biopic will capitalize on timing when it's released to coincide with Bush's re-election campaign in 2004.

aren't "issue ads" verboten under the CFR law?

Only during the last 60 days before a federal election, and said element of the campaign finance reform act, which aimed to limit the influence of money on US politics, has been ruled unconstitutional by the courts. The US court of appeals has said that two key requirements of the new law, which was expected to effect the 2004 presidential election, violate the free speech provisions of the US constitution. By a split 2-1 judgement, it has repealed the act's ban on so-called "soft money" contributions by large companies and trade unions to political parties. And it has also rejected the ban on special interest groups from political advertising in the 60 days before any federal election.

This will only hurt Disney's already ailing stock. Their support for gay's and other decisions has really hurt their stock value.
