has just been born. It’s called The Film Deptartment, and Cindy Adams from The New York Post has the scoop….which Patty Ann at The Hostages found in the Gossip section….right above the story about Harry Morton, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba, and Mary Kate Olsen.
Its CEO is Mark Gill, for mer Miramax and Warner Independent exec who masterminded “March of the Penguins.” Two of its board members are Sheik Waleed Al Ibrahim and Zeid Masri.
The Saudi Arabian sheik runs stations that are mouthpieces for the Saudis. Like for instance, Al Arabiya news network, which is not known to be pro-U.S.
Zeid Masri runs the McLean, Va., operation SilverHaze, which has in the past secretly invested Palestine Liberation Organization money through front companies. His SilverHaze caused the Bowlmor scandal this newspaper broke in 2004.
While Bowlmor initially believed theirs was good clean money from good clean people, it is now time for due diligence. One of the underwriters of this infant movie production operation is GE, the solid gold, 18-karat American company that brought us the 9/11 saga “United 93.” Are they aware of the past associations and involvements of some who sit on The Film Department’s board?
