KATU 2 - Portland, Oregon: Decision not to show 'Fahrenheit 9-11' sparks protest

KATU 2 - Portland, Oregon: "Theater owner Michael Morgan said the decision not to show 'Fahrenheit 911' has nothing to do with politics.
Morgan said the problem is the coastal city's size - Moore's distributors would not sell him the film unless he would guarantee to show it for four weeks.
Morgan says that is too big of a gamble for a market of less than 8,000 residents, Morgan says.
'Even with 'Spiderman,' they didn't ask for four weeks,' Morgan said. 'I only had to guarantee two weeks.' "
