Enfield library cancels screening of 'Sicko' under pressure from council, mayor

Journal Inquirer | Page One | Enfield library cancels screening of 'Sicko' under pressure from council, mayor:


ENFIELD — The Enfield Public Library on Wednesday canceled Friday’s screening of filmmaker Michael Moore’s controversial documentary “Sicko” under pressure from most Town Council members and the mayor, who threatened to cut the library’s funding if the film was shown.
So much for the marketplace of ideas in Enfield, CT. When was the last time PBS or any network showed a Michael Moore movie anyways?

Quick search shows Moore actually tweeted about the answer to that question recently.


So sorry. My docs haven't been allowed on free TV in U.S. in 20yrs. Not even PBS & hardly ever on basic cable. Only pay channels.Wed Jan 12 23:31:21 via Twitter for BlackBerry®
