I believe that Disney is simply trying to avoid political issues. Disney's involvement in such areas were considered by it's board members and stock
holders as veering away from it's traditional entertainment offferings. Since the recent shakeup over Eisner, we might expect Disney to shy away from
hot issues more and more.
As a personal comment... I finally watched "Bowling for Columbine" to see what all the controversy was about. I could not consider it to be a true
docmentary except for the fact that it did present some historical facts here and there. Unfortunately, those few facts were wrapped in his own
personal beliefs, suspicions and accusations which made up the bulk of the film. That's not what documentaries are about. In this case, it was more
of an op-ed piece rendered in video. I suspect that ""Fahrenheit 911" will be much the same although Moore calls it a "comedy".
As a last note, I'm thankful the copy of "Bowling.." I viewed was just a bootleg copy downloaded off the Net because it certainly wasn't worth
Perhaps Moore's next work will deal with illegal file sharing.
