Well, let's see:

>From CNN.com, May 6, 2004:

[Michael] Moore said in a letter on his Web site Wednesday that he 
was informed Tuesday that Disney has moved to prevent its Miramax 
Films unit from distributing "Fahrenheit 9/11." The New York Times 
and trade publication Daily Variety confirmed that Disney is blocking 
distribution of the film. The film, set to make its debut at the 
Cannes film festival later this month, has yet to be released.

Oliver Stone's "Nixon" was not shown on national
television two months before an election; and
the events it portrayed had taken place 30-some
years earlier.  (Also, Nixon was dead.)

And then there was the CBS-produced "The Reagans,"
scheduled for network broadcast in November 2003
(not before an election).  After right-wingers
demanded that it be withdrawn because it was not
historically accurate, CBS meekly complied and
shunted it off to Showtime. (And "The Reagans"
was designed as a love story, not a film about
responsibility for a major disaster that killed
3,000 people.)
