LESS MOORE....It looks like Fahrenheit 9/11 won't be shown at U.S. army bases. But this has nothing to do with its anti-war point of view:

Judd Anstey, public affairs specialist for the Army and Air Force Exchange Service which books movies for military base theatres, denied any suggestion the decision not to book the film had anything to do with its content and was solely based on business.

....The time between when "Fahrenheit 9/11" would be played in base theatres and when it would be sold on DVD was too short to allow it to make money, Anstey said. "This was based on business standards," he told Reuters.

I report, you decide.
