Michael Moore Advantaged by Citizens United


For John, BLUFThe Left finally has a use for the SCOTUS Decision in Citizens United.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




The link is to Reason Magazine and the Reporter is Mr Ed Krayewski.  The dateline is 18 October.

Here is the sub-headline:

Moore can also be honest about the point of his film now that the Supreme Court has freed him to do so.
Here is the lede plus two.

Director Michael Moore announced last night that he would be releasing a new film, Michael Moore in Trumpland, calling it his "October Surprise" and offering free tickets on a first come, first serve basis for the debut in New York City tonight.

The film is about Moore's attempt to put on a one-man show at the Midland Theater in Newark, Ohio and how theater management "prevented him from taking the stage as they deemed him too controversial," according to Deadline.

Moore bills the film as one "Ohio Republicans tried to shut down." On September 26, he wrote on Medium for the first time about his "October surprise," revealing the one-man show he was trying to put on a live one man show about "this crazy Presidential race" and film it. He wrote that his plans "got dealt a death blow by the Republicans of Licking County, Ohio," saying his team got a call from theater management that said that "the community board that oversees the theater has voted not to allow Michael Moore to perform his how here" and were declining the rental.

  Funny we haven't heard more about this.  No pun intended.
