"The Carlyle Group - which [Moore] bashes in the movie as some sort of shadowy war profiteering company - has become part owner of Loews Cinemas, which is currently showing his film."
Then there's this:
According to the firm's web site , 5.5 percent of the Carlyle Group, one of the primary villains alleged to have provided the Saudi-Bush link in Michael Moore's Farenheit 9/11, is owned by the California Public Employees Retirement System.
UPDATE: On the other hand, due to the agreement between Disney and Miramax, 60% of the net profits from the movie will go to charity, and Disney will choose the recipient or recipients. Note that that's 60% of the net profits, and also note that Hollywood has its own accounting standards.
