The Daily Camera: 'Fahrenheit 9/11' and 'Passion': A battle of pop culture, politics

The Daily Camera: Boulder County: "'It's obviously a negative movie as far as the Bush administration is concerned,' says Bill Eckert, vice chairman of the county GOP, which isn't doing anything to protest the film. 'That's fine. Let people go see it and draw their own conclusions.'
That's exactly what Ford Church, who plans to catch the movie tonight, wants to see happen.
'I'd like us to move away from liberal vs. conservative or Republican vs. Democrat,' says Church, acknowledging that the film's publicity has been highly polarizing. 'This whole thing about questioning the administration being the same as supporting the terrorists, that's just asinine. Freedom of speech is important, and I'd encourage conservatives to go see this movie and pick it apart, piece by piece.
'But don't just write it off.' "
