The Washington Dispatch: Bush Supporters Angered Over Fahrenheit 9/11 Viewing at Library

The Washington Dispatch: "An Ohio library is planning to provide a public showing of Fahrenheit 9/11 after an inability to keep up with the ongoing requests for the film from its video library. In order to provide balance, the libraries administrators have decided to also air FahrenHype 9/11, a recently produced counter to Michael Moore's hard-hitting documentary.
Note that while the library does serve as a polling place, the viewing is planned a week before the election.
Bush supporters on the web are outraged. Posters on a pro-Bush website wrote, 'This library needs to be stormed by pro-American forces,' and 'boycott the showing by showing signs[:] no more donations to the library'
While some of George Bush's supporters are claiming that the planned airing of an anti-Kerry video by Sinclair Broadcasting (across public airwaves to millions of viewers) is protected by free speech, they object to a small group of Americans gathering at local library to view an anti-Bush documentary."
