Volvo is switching transportation companies that transport completed trucks from its manufacturing facility to customers nationwide. Swift Transportation Company will be hiring 100 to 150 long haul truck drivers, and filling 50 in-house positions, including shop technicians, administrators, and drivers. Volvo officials say the new agreement will benefit the New River Valley because Swift hires primarily locally, while the old carrier employs a national network of drivers.

((If Michael Moore's films have created a storm of controversy over the Hollywood Horizon--his latest work is causing a tidal wave in Tinsel Town. Walt Disney is blocking it's Miramax films unit from releasing a Moore documentary critical of President Bush's handling of the 9-11 terrorist attacks..

(SOT: MICHAEL MOORE/FILMMAKER)


"PART OF THEIR JOB IS TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL VOICES ARE HEARD IN A FREE AND OPEN SOCIETY. FOR THEM TO STIFLE ONE OF THOSE VOICES IS ANTI-AMERICAN."

(STANDUP: DREW LEVINSON/NEW YORK)


"THE FILM IS CALLED FAHRENHEIT 9/11. IT TAKES A CLOSE LOOK AT THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION'S COUNTER-TERRORISM POLICIES BEFORE AND AFTER SEPTEMBER 11TH. IT ALSO EXPLORES ALLEGED CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THE BUSH FAMILY AND OSAMA BIN LADEN'S FAMILY."
Moore sneaked film crews into Iraq to show--in his words--the other side of the war. He also talked to American soldiers he said were disillusioned with what was going on.

(SOT MOORE)

"IT IS SHOCKING, SAD, AND PROFOUND."

(GRAPHIC)


Disney CEO Michael Eisner said his company nixed the movie because it "did not want a film in the middle of the politcal process when we're such a non-partisan company."

(SHOT OF WEBSITE)

But on his website, Moore says Disney is worried it's Walt Disney World theme park could lose tax breaks it gets in Florida, where the governor happens to be President Bush's brother Jeb.

(NATSOUND FROM ROGER AND ME)

Moore who often aims his lens at conservatives and big business was hoping for a July opening, but now without a distributor that's up in the air. Still Moore says if he has to, he'll throw the movie in the back of his van, take it around the country and project it on screens himself. That would make for an interesting Hollywood ending.
