It appears for now that Fox will not be swayed despite the fact the the
overwhelming number of responses to them were in favor of showing the films
One VERY interesting note in yesterday's New York Daily News ( and I suspect
elsewhere) claimed that the films were pulled because Rupert Murdoch's wife
who is Chinese objected. Fox denies this and claims that it was due
to objection by "community groups".
This remains a very sad case of "commercial" censorship of the first order
and very, very ironic given the rants that ALL Fox media outlets engage in
when they claim that some "liberal" group is engaging in "PC" politics

If you want to see the Chan films you will have to buy the bootlegs on
eBay (which are plentiful and ignored by Fox)
