Campaign Finance 'Reform' vs. Michael Moore
Talk about poetic justice. Michael Moore, maker of fictional 'documentaries,' may be restricted from advertising his film after July 30. The general counsel to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) has advised the Commission
that political documentary filmmakers may not air television or radio ads referring to federal candidates within 30 days of a primary election or 60 days of a general election.

The opinion is generated under the new McCain-Feingold campaign-finance law, which prohibits corporate-funded ads that identify a federal candidate before a primary or general election.

Should the six members of the FEC vote to approve the counsel's opinion, it could put a serious crimp on Moore's promotion efforts.
Although I believe the McCain-Feingold is horrible legislation, it's nice to see it causing trouble for the reprehensible Moore. No one is more deserving.

The article also mentions 4 other movies that would be affected by the ruling. Revealed: There is no shortage of money backing the "Bush for Ex-President" campaign.
