Michael Moore: “Backlash Begins”

Michael Moore’s “Capitalism: A Love Story” got off to a solid start on its first day in a limited release, taking in $62,000 in four theaters in New York and Los Angeles.

But Moore says via Twitter that a backlash has begun. “CBS has cancelled me on its Mon. morning show. After I criticized ABC/Disney on GMA, they didn’t want me to do the same on CBS.”

On Friday, Moore appeared on “Good Morning America” and criticized the company for retaining employees as “permanent freelancers,” those who have worked for the network for some time yet don’t enjoy the same benefits as full-time and full-fledged employees.

No word yet from CBS, but the cancellation of his appearance surely won’t hurt his publicity blitz, as he has appeared everywhere from “Real Time with Bill Maher” to “The Jay Leno Show” to “Larry King Live.”
