Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Voters in the US will be able to log on to the net tonight and download Michael Moore's controversial documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11, for some topical election-time viewing.

Net movie provider CinemaNow is making the film available on a pay-per-view basis as of this evening, The BBC reports.

Documentaries in alternative political flavours will also be available to viewers on the eve of the presidential election. If Michael Moore's anti-bush stance is not to your taste, DISH Network is showing both Fahrenheit, and Carlton Sherwood's Stolen Honor: Wounds that Never Heal, a 42-minute film which casts a critical eye over John Kerry's post-Vietnam anti-war activities.

Moore has made no secret of his dislike of the Bush administration, and has said openly that he hopes his film will cause Bush to lose this election. Bush supporters have argued that this means the film should subject to the FCC regulations which say TV stations must give equal airtime to each candidate.

The Oscar winner had originally signed a deal with iN DEMAND, a pay-per-view cable company, to show the film as part of an election evening special. However, the plans were axed because of legal concerns, the company said. ®
