This hasn’t been a good week for radical filmmaker Michael Moore. The Hollywood Reporter revealed that he recently lost a re-election bid for his position as a governor on the Academy Award’s documentary board.

Gerald Molen, the producer of Schindler’s List and many other Hollywood films, says Moore’s loss will restore a level of balance in the consideration of political documentaries. This week he wrote a letter to Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, stating:

On behalf of my fellow filmmakers and the vast American Heartland which, on occasion, has felt disenfranchised by the Academy, I want to personally thank you and the Academy for removing Mr. Moore and restoring a fair and impartial voting process to the documentary category of the Oscars. . . .

Foxes shouldn’t guard hen houses and Michael Moore shouldn’t have been in charge of the documentary nominating process at the Academy.”

Molen has long believed that Moore’s presence on the Academy’s documentary committee has tainted the nominating process.

Thank goodness..... some very good documentaries have been passed over for the left wing crap ever since Moore came to the forefront.
