Moore Says Weinstein Wanted Clinton Scene Cut
Friday, June 22, 2007; A05
Michael Moore is getting a lot of mileage out of the hit he takes on Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) in his provocative new movie “Sicko,” which made its Washington premiere Wednesday night at the Uptown theater.
Moore said after the premiere that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, a personal friend and supporter of the Clintons whose company financed the film, “begged” him to remove a scene exposing Hillary Clinton as the second-highest recipient of campaign donations from the health-care industry.
“I said, ‘No, Harvey. I gotta do the right thing.’ He understood.” Link to Washington Post Article
