DISNEY/MIRAMAX CONTACT INFO! Financing Michael Moore's 2004 "Attack Film" on Bush is UNACCEPTABLE!
http://www.freerepublic.com ^ | 5/11/03 | Recovering_Democrat

Posted on 05/11/2003 5:39:29 PM PDT by Recovering_Democrat

Michael Moore is trying to tie Bush to bin Laden! His film is scheduled to be released in 2004, in the middle of the campaign! And Disney's Miramax is reportedly financing this hit piece!

Of course we must boycott Disney and Miramax. But letters (hard copy ones, ones they have to hold in their hands and look at) are another effective way of getting the message out that America doesn't want Michael Moore's Bush-bashing films in their marketplace!!

Here are some contact numbers and street addresses to mail your letters to.

Please remember: the person who answers the phone may have NO IDEA what you're talking about...they're mainly receptionists and communication specialists who're trained to forward messages and calls. Don't abuse them. And don't abuse the reader(s) of your letters! But be firm and matter of fact--you do not think this decision is wise.

If you're a stockholder, maybe you'll want to sell your stock. If you're a parent, maybe you won't rush out to buy "Treasure Island" for your kid. (Not that you would anyway! ha ha) If you're a grandparent, maybe you won't take the grandkids to DisneyWorld after all. Whatever. Disney's tentacles are so long and reach so far I cannot imagine anyone not having some connection to the company. Even ABC is owned by Disney.

Remember: Disney's subsidiary MIRAMAX is financing the movie, so you can contact BOTH companies. The head of Miramax is a guy named Harvey Weinstein.

Here are the addresses and numbers...and here's to a good FREEPing!

I'd frankly like to see Disney sink money into a black pit like this movie, though admittedly I also liked the idea of Mel Gibson buying the rights and only releasing the movie on DVD with extra commentary [e.g. for BFC the extra commentary would call viewers' attention to the background behind Mr. Heston when he was speaking].

I'd live to see such a DVD released to expose Mr. Moore's techniques of prevarication.

More importantly I would urge anyone who works in the film editing industry to get a job with the production/post-production company working on this film, so you can expose the fraud, deceit and deceptive editing which made "Bowling for Columbine" an evil propaganda piece of which Joseph Goebbels which be very proud.

Release video, notes, stories of editing crimes...sabotage production at all levels. Do anything to stop or delay production of this film. This film must never reach theaters before the 2004 elections. The media-Socialist mafia must not be permitted to subvert democracy with Nazi propaganda tactics.

FReepers, I urge you to boycott editing facilities, protest, tie up traffic, commit acts of civil disobedience to disrupt, delay or stop this film's progress. This film will be the signle greatest act of evil ever purpetrated by Hollwood traitors.

Remember Florida 2000....we can make a difference! THIS FILM MUST BE STOPPED!!!

Oh please...

Rational thought (and subsequent disdain)handles the Michael Moore's of this world quite nicely thank you very much. Do you think anyone that's sentient is oblivious to Moore's politics? Frankly, your hysteria is more thought provoking than any of Moore's pap.

Relax . . . everything is under control.

The Bush adminstration has people in place to monitor this left wing wack job named Michael Moore and his Disney/ Miramax [DiM] finacial backers. I predict before the film is released Mr. Moore may face manys serious questions about his manufactured sources. DiM may face even more serious questions raised by stockholders and investors.

My prediction: DiM stock falls into the toilet of history. Moore faces possible court battles: And DiM swims like a large black log in the toilet only to be flushed just before the film emerges from Moore's over productive @nus.

Just my humble opinion folks . . . DU'ers and DiM's may flame at will.

Exactly right. I'm not so sure that our complaining wouldn't strengthen their resolve. On the bright side, how many people do you know who saw Moore's recent diatribe? I don't know a one.

The thing we need to do rather than contacting Disney ourselves is look to our friends in the Media to expose Disney for this! Contacting Disney won't hurt, but public embarrassment from the likes of Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity, Liddy, and others will certainly hit Disney over the head with a baseball bat like they need...

If you are a stockholder or your 401(k) owns Disney, send a snotty note to Investor Relations IIRC, it is hard to find, but start at Yahoo, Finance. Type in "DIS" and hit enter. You'll get a current price quote and to the right will be a list of items that starts with "Chart." A couple of words over will be "Profile." That page should have several email links including "Investor Relations."

Be straightforward, don't lie or threaten, simply say something like "support of Moore will, in the lomg run, do great financial damage to our company and I, therefore, urge our Board to prohibit an American compant like ours from any dealings with someone who hates the American system as Moore clearly does."

Here's a great suggestion: find out when will Michael Moore be doing the shoots for this movie and have Freepers hound him all day with protests. Make it so when Moore is shooting footage for Fahrenheit 911 it will be publicity fiasco from start to finish.

Personally..I WANT Moore to make this film..Next up, all the "interviews", from coast to coast; all time slots. He'll out himself and this film will tank. Let him do it...The tide is quickly turning on the venomous types; ala Moore.

Quite honestly, this country is "chest thumping". We kicked two countries asses in break neck speed. Moore releasing this at the particular time he is releasing it will only help us. Common folks will look at it as tin foil stuff. Nothing more. The only believers will be the one's who will never vote for anything without a "D" next to it's name at the polls anyways..

Flame away..

Personally, I hope that fat bastard makes an anti-Bush movie. We will have plenty of time to be fully prepared to fire back, and create a backlash. The Conservative media (Rush, Hannity, and to some extent Fox) need to be armed to the teeth with ammo on how this supposed populist lives an opulent Park Avenue life. HIs hypocrisy must be exposed. Not only that, we'll be ready to counter every lie in his "film." The American people need to be told the truth about Moore: he is an America-hating communist, with a Clintonian gift for telling massive lies. Lets take the fight right to fat boy's doorstep.

I am sure you guys are making a big deal about nothing. We all know that any film made by Michael Moore will be unbiased, will present all sides fairly and that he doesn't have any particular agenda other than to bring only the true facts to the public.

Now THERE'S an idea. A dopeumentary on M. Moore. Titles? Perhaps "Feelin' (and Feedin') on your Pain".

I KNOW there's some GREAT creativity out there. Get to work :-)

Here is the problem...even though we all know Moore is a big fat liar (literally and figuratively) a great part of the American public will take it as gospel, just because they saw it on TV or in a movie...You know...the people who only read the local newspapers and watch ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and are convinced that these programs/publications are fair and balanced. Those people who do not seek out the truth for themselves will just accept this bunk. AND DISNEY HAS ENOUGH MONEY TO BROADCAST THE HIT FILM FAR AND WIDE...thus giving the liberals opportunity to use it.

While I agree there is no connection, I remember reading something about legitimate business contacts between Osama's father and Bush Sr. I've seen liberals making a big deal about this, but from what it seems, Osama's father owned one of the largest construction companies in Saudi...and it was standard business. If this is true, you know Michael Moore will distort the facts.

I think it is important to find out what these interests where so we can combat the accusations that Moore will imply. Does anyone have any information on this connection? Aside from the fact that Osama was dis-owned from his father and excommunicated from Saudi Arabia, I'd like to know what Moore has in his playbook. It's only reasonable to assume that this country would do business with the leading businessmen of Saudi Arabia. And if it turns out that Osama's father was one of these businessmen, that in no way supports a link to Osama and his terrorist network. Unfortunately, that won't stop MM from making a tenuous connection for political points.

It was a smart move for Mel Gibson to back out out of having his production company handle the next piece of trash from that lunatic Michael Moore. The sad part is, Walt Disney was a big time conservative and a loyal Republican. He must be turning over in his grave at this outrageous alliance.

Post-"Bowling", we re-gained control of the Senate, now control all 3 branches of the government, still have our 2nd amendment rights, are enjoying what, IMO, is a bit less liberalized media, have garnered 70% of public opinion in favor of our mid-east policy...and all THAT without resorting to actions easily characterized as repression of free speech. I think I'll allow the leftists and Mr. Moore their little corner of the room...apparently nobody is listening anyway...

"Michael Moore is trying to tie Bush to bin Laden! His film is scheduled to be released in 2004, in the middle of the campaign! And Disney's Miramax is reportedly financing this hit piece!"

Let the idiot make his film. Let him show it during the campaign. It's not like this is a director acclaimed for previous work. The film will flop and the liberals will look foolish yet again.

Why are we worried about Michael Moore? Were it not for his embarrassing 15 minutes of fame last month no one would know who he is. He's a zero, his films are a zero, and everyone knows it.

Let's all calm down and move on to threats with some semblance of credibility....
