    AOL intentionaly hurt the release of Fahrenheight 911(an anti Bush film)...

    This is a little bit of a "paranoid conspiracy theory," but knowing big corporations and U.S. Politics, I can't completely discount it.

    The Evidence:

    - Mr. Moviefone gave F9/11 a decidedly luekwarm review, and reviews it only after he reviews all the other movies coming out last weekend

    - Moviefone "forgets" to list New York theaters showing the film during the first two days of release.

    - Moviefone labels the film NC-17 on its website and online. The service Moviefone gets their ratings from has it listed correctly as R and has never had it as an NC-17 film. Moviefone does't fix the problem until late Friday night.

    - AOL's entry page's lead story during the first day of release: A poll that asks users to choose whether Michael Moore is a [paraphrasing, as I don't remember the wording] Self Promoting Fraud or Truth-Telling Patriot with the former winning by a healthy margin.

    I suppose it could all be coincidence, but I'd imagine a big company like AOL has lots of reasons to keep the GOP in power.

    But to the point. All the media treats Moore like his films are fact based and accurate, so it about evens out, according to my recknin'.

    And another thing. Let's talk about hollywood, newspapers, and most major media. They're all libs, and in cahoots with the evil forces of socialism.
