Michael Moore Election Special Dropped
The decision may have come after Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. announced plans to air a special about Senator John Kerry on their television stations. Although Sinclair says that the special has not yet been filmed and remains unscripted and they have invited Senator Kerry to participate, Kerry supporters have gone after the network because they believe the program will be based largely on an anti-Kerry film.
Moore has reportedly offered Sinclair the right to air "Fahrenheit 9/11" for free.
The controversial filmmaker is not pleased with iN DEMAND's decision not to air his special. He blasted the company and blamed their decision on pressure from "top Republican people." He is reportedly considering taking legal action against the company, accusing them of breaking their contract.
iN DEMAND issued a statement and said that
any litigation that Moore might file would be "entirely baseless and groundless."
The company is a jointed owned operation of Time Warner, Cox and Comcast
cable companies and offers pay-per-view service to their subscribers.
