Michale Moore has removed 9/11 from Oscar consideration

Have you seen this? Michael Moore has intentionally removed Fahrenheit 9/11 from Oscar consideration. Apparently there's some obscure rule that if a film is shown on broadcast TV within nine months of its theatrical debut then it's ineligible for Best Documentary consideration. Moore is pushing to get his film shown on TV very close to election day but naturally his distributors are none too pleased with that scenario. So he's already pulled 9/11 from consideration by not submitting it to the Academy. I think that that's a pretty cool move. It really sounds like that in the unlikely event that the film is shown on TV the night before the election that it would swing the election to the Democrats. If you haven't seen the film yet, let me know and I can hook you up. I can also hook you up with Outfoxed if you haven't seen that.
