Subject: RE: BS: Fox News review of Fahrenheit 9/11
Given all the hoopla and money being spent to urge people not to see it you can bet on it that the effort will only increase ticket sales.
Think of the great story about the fledgling Fox Network (Not Fox News) many years ago. They had a so-so show called Married With Children. Ready for cancellation. A lady from the Mid West was offended and started a campaign to make advertisers quit sponsorship and urged Fox to take it off. Result---a hit show that ran for years and Fox, some exec said, should have built a statue of that lady for singlehandedly getting the nation to watch Fox.
