When Millionaires Attack

KSL has the video of Larry Miller attacking one of their microphones. He was really intimidating. He grabbed the microphone and used it to pull the reporter close to him. When I first saw it, I thought LHM had lunged at the guy, but viewing it today, he certainly leans in, but he uses the reporters microphone to pull him in close. Radio From Hell thought the reporter was Ben Winslow so I'm hoping for something on the KSL blog. Radio From Hell brought up the great point that if LHM is so satisfied with his decision and has overwhelmingly been supported in it (as he claims), then why did he basically attack a reporter for asking him about it?

Larry seems to have lost it. Almost looks like he wants to punch the reporter!

I think Larry may be gay.

The reporter was Ben Winslow and I don't think the incident will be commented upon.

The KSL blog sparked some nasty comment wars back in the summer. Since then, they have stuck to safe and non-controversial fluff topics. They haven't had a comment posted since Thanksgiving. Don't look for them to go anywhere near LHM or Brokeback Mtn.

The video wasn't shown tonight on the news, I think Larry threatened to pull some of his advertising money.

It's a good thing he pulled the movie. I wouldn't want to accidentally stumble into the theater and (thank you Homer Simpson) get "gay" on me.

Larry has had enough, but then later he is quoted as saying something to the effect that those who don't agree are out. Well no duh.

I would have been fine with his decision not to air brokeback if he never brought it to the theater in the first place.

But it was just stupid to find out about what the movie is "about" and then pull it from your theatre in a few hours.

Sounds like Larry needs to hire one of Rocky's old press people.

LHM has made the movie more talked about and helped sales in UT and elsewhere. It is just like buring Madonna's dumb "Sex" book.
