How Michael Moore and Disney Fleeced the Public With A Fake Controversy
There's finally a reason to read Slate again besides Mickey Kaus and Christopher Hitchens. Edward Jay Epstein's The Hollywood Economist has been excellent in every installment thus far. His latest blows the cover off of Michael Moore's censorship charade that fueled the initial publicity for Fahrenheit 9/11, and also shows how Disney made a fat profit by 'rejecting' the film. I've blogged before on how much of a financial triumph Moore's film was, regardless of its artistic merit. The man may be a jackass, but he's a pretty good businessman.
