Bowling For Michael Moore

This was posted today at Alternative Press Review (The “What Really Happened” site is a little idiosyncratic, but the story seems to check out.):

“So desperate are Bush Republicans to kill Michael Moore’s latest film, Fahrenheit 9/11, they have hired a public relations firm to set up a web site attacking Moore. The site, MoveAmericaForward.com, claims to be ‘non-partisan,’ but a glance at the ‘About’ page of the site reveals the director and staff of Move America Forward are all diehard Republicans, anti-tax activists, and former legislative staffers. The PR firm is Russo Marsh & Rogers. Thanks to the detective work of WhatReallyHappened.com, it was revealed that Move America Forward’s web site was registered in the name of Russo Marsh & Rogers. … In short, Move America Forward’s campaign is a Republican dirty trick designed to smear Moore and pressure move theater owners not to run his film.”
