Lateline - 25/06/2004: Mike Moores hot new film

Lateline - 25/06/2004: Mike Moores hot new film: "MAXINE McKEW: As we go to air tonight, Mike Moore's new documentary, 'Fahrenheit 9/11', is about to open on over 850 screens across America.

The film has received mixed reviews and Republicans are trying to have promotion for the film banned from television -- claiming it amounts to political advertising which may impact on the November presidential election.

Moore has hit back, describing that as 'vicious censorship'.

Suzanne Smith reports.

GEORGE W BUSH, US PRESIDENT: This is an impressive crowd -- the haves and the have-mores.

Some people call you the elite, I call you my base.

MICHAEL MOORE, DIRECTOR: I would like to see President Bush removed from the White House.

GEORGE W BUSH IN FAHRENHEIT 9/11: I call on all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers.

Now watch this drive.

SUZANNE SMITH: The narrative of Fahrenheit 9/11 runs like a Democrat ad campaign.

Bush exploited September 11 to raise fear in the community and in the end, launched a war on the fraudulent premise that Saddam Hussein had links with Al Qaeda and weapons of mass destruction and ultimately Bush cronies like Halliburton reaped the benefits.

MAN IN FAHRENHEIT 9/11: Once that oil stops rolling, it's going to be lots of money.

Whatever it costs, the government will pay you."
