March 24, 2009 · Hillary: The Movie, a slashing critique of then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, is taking center stage Tuesday at the U.S. Supreme Court,
where the film's producers are using it to challenge the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law.That means the producing organization must publicly
disclose who paid for the movie, and any broadcast ad must have a tag line disclosing the sponsoring organization and disclaiming any connections to
any candidate's campaign. In addition, the court said, the movie could not be broadcast 30 days before a primary election.
