Stanford Cancels Condi Screening
You read about the movie on RadarOnline.com - now read about the controversy.
A Dec. 2 screening of Courting Condi, the documentary about a man's efforts to date Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, has been canceled at the Stanford Film Society, Condi's alma mater.
"Given Condoleezza Rice's past and eminent future connection with Stanford University, we were excited to bring your film to campus," SFS co-president Kerry Mahuron informed Condi director Sebastian Doggart via email on Friday.
"We have become increasingly alienated by the strong political and personal agenda associated with Courting Condi."
After including a laundry list of on-campus "logistical issues," Ms. Mahuron concludes, "we do not want to schedule competing events."
Doggart believes, "This has all the hallmarks of Rice's cronies scaring the Stanford Film Society into pulling the screening."
A debate following the screening on "whether Stanford University should welcome Miss Rice back to its faculty when she leaves office in 2009" has also been cancelled.
