Supreme Court to Revisit ‘Hillary’ Documentary

8-31-2009 1:40 PM EST

The Supreme Court will hear a case involving the release of a movie entitled
"“Hillary: The Movie”

The stakes are high .

At issue is whether the court should overrule a 1990 decision, Austin v. Michigan Chamber of Commerce, which upheld restrictions on corporate spending to support or oppose political candidates. Re-arguments in the Supreme Court are rare, and the justices’ decision to call for one here may have been prompted by lingering questions about just how far campaign finance laws, including McCain-Feingold, may go in regulating campaign spending by corporations.

Oliver Stone released a film called "W" about president BUSH.
If Michael Moore wanted to make a critical movie the liberals would donate money.Remember the outrage when he wanted to film in Cuba ?

Politics makes strange bedfellows and this is case is a great example .
The American Civil Liberties Union and its usual allies are on opposite sides, with the civil rights group fighting shoulder to shoulder with the National Rifle Association to support the corporation that made the film.

To the dismay of many of his liberal friends and clients, Floyd Abrams, the celebrated First Amendment lawyer, is representing Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, a longtime foe of campaign finance laws.

“Criminalizing a movie about Hillary Clinton is a constitutional desecration,” Mr. Abrams said.

The new Transparency under Comrade OBAMA is going to be tested by the Supreme Court

Shouldnt Micheal Moore ,the master of misinformation and Oliver " I never read a key moment in history I couldn't I couldnt spin and create a film George Soros would be envious of " Stone be held to the same standards as conservative film makers ?

Much of the Tea Party movement and the town Hall meetings would be erased by conventional media outlets .Let's all be thankfull for YOU TUBE .
