MD Library Will Discontinue Showing "Uncovered" Film

Members of the board of the Ocean Pines and Pocomoke Libraries (MD) have called a halt to the fourth and final showing of Robert Greenwald's film, "Uncovered: The War On Iraq", described here.

Board members say that the showing of the film violates their meeting room policy (even though they've already shown it three times out of four). Library patron and Ocean City resident George Benton disagreed with the board that the film was not a documentary. He described it as "non-partisan" and that library officials "made a political issue out of it because (the film) did not agree with their political beliefs."

Benton said discussion before and after the film was encouraged and that he wanted to present the film to give "people a chance to finally talk about this (war) thing together." Delmarva Now .
