Rosica reportedly "lied" to the producers of "Bella." Was it an attempt to sink the movie?

Bella was a delightful film.  

John Zmirak writes at The Stream about an incident relating to Rosica, Salt + Light and the producers of Bella and the Toronto International Film Festival.

"We were driving to his studios when I got a phone call out of the blue. On the line was a 20-something employee at Salt and Light. She was crying. She told us that Father Rosica’s motives weren’t pure. That he didn’t like us or our film, and he intended to air our interview that very week. That would have been during the Festival, which then we’d be sure to lose.
I got off the phone, kind of skeptical. Would a priest really do something like that? Would a journalist break an embargo he’d promised to respect? I talked the question over with the other producers. At last we agreed. To be on the safe side, we would cancel the interview.
We turned the car around and I called Father Rosica. I told him that our schedule wouldn’t permit an interview after all.
He got violently angry, and shouted that he’d been counting on the interview to fill air time that same week. We’d left a hole in his broadcast schedule.
I was taken aback. I said, “Father, you promised us this interview wouldn’t air until after the Festival. That’s why we agreed to do it.”
Rosica got silent. He said something condescending and hung up the phone.
I guess we were foolish to trust someone, just because he wore a Roman collar.
Rosica did want to politicize the film, in a way we’d warned him would sink it. And he was willing to lie in order to do that. His motives? I won’t speculate on those."

Just one more example of the character of this deceitful man. A man who put my wife and I under great distress. A man who on no less than two occasions tried to undermine my employment.

A most repugnant man.

That poor intern. I hope she's left Tom's employment by now.

He really does hate everything pure and good. How sodomy ruins lives! One no longer believes that it is the love of money that corrupts most.

Why, you ask, my dear Asshat?

Because it's my blog!

Now, go back to your hole, troll.

Vox, we were with you when you were suffering the onslaught from this excuse of a man. We know what you went through and all i can say is vengeance belongs to God. Let he who lies, cheats and hurts others be handed over to the lord for justice. The truth always comes out and today we give thanks to God for showing you, and all of us that we are all in his almighty hands!

Fr Rosica - we all know you read this blog and these comments. We're on to you.

I am prompted to ask all, everybody witnessing this humiliation, to remember to pray - if you are not doing it already - that priest Rosica would see, what he has done to the Church.

This time, when the facade has crumbled and the true nature was revealed in front of the entire world, is perfect to do the right thing. Priest Rosica! - We have seen that this is a perfect moment for a promotion to diplomatic projects with murderous regimes, but I pray you say NO. As the Chinese say, a problem means simply - an opportunity.

From what I understand, as soon as you repent, you are already forgiven. So it would be with me.

I wonder if Francis will continue to keep Rosica employed... because of Mercy.

Fr. Rosica will in time be rewarded with a miter for his faithful service to the regime. If you doubt this, consider what the pope has done with the appointment of a the new camerlengo. It was an affront to uncle Ted's victims and a clear expression of papal power. A dictator pope will do as he pleases and the appointment of Fr. Rosica to thw episcopate will show everyone who is boss. Bishop Rosica will make a fine auxiliary and soon enough a coadjutor... Stay tuned
