Posted on 09/07/2006 5:44:39 PM PDT by Saint Louis
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Amid an election-year debate over who can best defend America, U.S. congressional Democrats urged ABC on Thursday to cancel a TV miniseries about the September 11 attacks that is critical of former Democratic President Bill Clinton and his top aides.
Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada denounced the five-hour television movie, set to air in two parts on Sunday and Monday nights, as "a work of fiction."
Reid and other leading Senate Democrats wrote to Robert Iger, president and CEO of ABC's corporate parent, the Walt Disney Co., urging him to "cancel this factually inaccurate and deeply misguided program."

Go to the URL at abc to send them your opinion on being censored by the Dim Rat scum...
We're also talking about it over here:
This smacks of fascism and is to be condemned in the loudest voice possible.
I'm getting sick of self righteous deluded Dim Rats lying to us and now trying to destroy a rare voice of "dissent" from their de-brained sheep zombies in the media...
I don't believe any of this. I believe it's all misdirected hype to increase ratings which translates into dollars for a liberally dominated television production company. And using the mainstream media, AS WELL AS FOX NEWS!!! To advertise this movie that will probably leave a bunch of Clinton Haters sadly disappointed.
I despise Clinton, but I'm not getting my hopes up...
I emailed ABC and got some moronic and generic reply.
Did the best I could, you can only say gutless coward so many ways.
This time it's ABC -- a major.
For a few years the left talking points have been, hate Bush for his inept handling of the war in Iraq and war on terror. That is and has been the democrat platform. Come November, a solid showing -- gaining seats -- is vital for them to have a reasonable chance in 2008. Obviously many people know or think this. For sure the left knows it.
Path to 9/11 will leave the viewer hating terrorists, not Bush. And secondarily, realize that Bush has been cleaning up after Clinton's inept handling of terrorist.
The Path to 9/11 snatches the rug out from under the democrat platform. Exposes them as a continuation of Clinton's inept policy for dealing (not dealing) with terrorists and terrorism.
John in DC, the author of the article that began this thread wrote: "This letter is such a major shot across the bow of Disney, it's not even funny." Wrong! It's nothing more than wishful thinking on his part and the reason for his sensationalism.
The Path to 9/11 will sink the democrats at the ballot box in the November mid-term elections. If right now they're not already sunk, and just a listing Titanic The Path will be a half-dozen nails in their coffin. The house of cards the democrats built their platform on will collapse as sure as the twin towers did and bury any hopes of winning anything in 2008.
What if ABC doesn't air The Path? ABC will upload it to the Internet. It'll be all over the Net and on DVD. Their not looking to recoup their $40-million dollar investment by selling advertising/commercials.
Why is ABC doing this? Is it just for ratings at the start of the fall season? I don't think so. Had they been in it just for ratings ABC would have aired The Path in mid October during sweeps week. No. ABC simply woke up to the realization that virtually every American had right after 9/11; if we don't get the terrorists they'll get us/ABC/Disney. Undoubtedly the wisest $40-million dollar investment Disney has made in decades, or ever.
I heard on ABC radio news this afternoon that the film was still being edited, so I guess they are changing it to make it more palatable to the Clinton crowd.
Thank you for the address. I sent my comments.
Has anyone heard if some uncut versions made it out so that they could be circulated? I sure hope there is at least one copy of the uncut version that can make the rounds. Would appreciate knowing. Thanks.
Well, I guess now we know what it is like to live under a Communist regime, where everything we 'get' to see is 'approved' by the elite who are enlightened and ordained. So much for freedom.
"I'm getting sick of self righteous deluded Dim Rats lying to us and now trying to destroy a rare voice of "dissent" from their de-brained sheep zombies in the media..."
I am too! It is a good thing you can't hear alan colmes tonight. He shouts that ABC lies, klintoon was better than Bush on terror, and that it is BUSH'S FAULT 100% that 9/11 happened. These people need to pay a price, and I ain't talkin' 'bout at the ballot box!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
liberals whining to the network...................
conservatives protesting like a bunch of 60's college kids..............
It's a GD tv show.
Just turn the channel you retards!
I sure hope and Pray you are right.
teaching, speaking, and writing books that claim 9/11 was orchestrated by the Bush Admin is "FREE SPEECH".......
Sharing how BJ refused to deal with Osama when he could is now worthy of CONGRESSIONAL threats?
how can anyone doubt these people are commies?
Our guys are too good of shots. Make the firing squad up of a bunch of punks from one of the urban gangs and tell them that he did their momma.
Well so much for anything close to the truth ever seeing the light of day. By the time it is aired it will look like something written by Moveon.org.
I was just wanting to reward the DESERVING! I feel your intent though... and I like it!!!
But the report about Bush's service record is the gospel according the left...
Write to ABC and tell them you will boycot the station and any advertisers that work with aBC. This is total bullsh*t .If the show was bashing Bush with lies and unfounded accusations thay would all be praising it. They LOVE freedom of speech untill it effects them in the negative. Klinton had OBL on a platter and he turned it donw. It's a matter of record at this point. We HAVE to take advantage of this and show the American public what frauds the Dems are. Klinton is a Nazi , he wants to control the media and how he is presented to the public. Who the hell is he ? See how the Liberals are ? They are the real Nazis.
Of the Studios in the film-making industry and companies in the entertainment industry Disney is very credible and highly respected. Disney didn't acquire ABC to go down with the dinosaur media. As FOX gains credibility and earns respect so will ABC with Disney at the helm.
Newt was just on Greta's show and said that this Movie was a work of "FICTION, made up, make believe"... just like any chance Newt has of holding ANY office ever again! What a POS Newt truly is!
is NOT "a GD tv show..."
Yes it is. That's all it is.
I'm not referring to the TV show...
The Democrats must be very scared of what's going to be revealed in this mini-series. And I'll bet even what they're trying to get cencored is only a small part of what the Clinton administration did wrong.
Just remember how everybody here was so excited about Clinton supposedly blowing up at his jury trial testimony and were demanding to see the tape blah blah and it turned out to be a big nothing
Ya all may be setting yourselfs up for another big letdown
What should have been done was the GOP demand hearings on Berger's theft of the secret documents --what was in them and why did he steal them
For of course the GOP came up short again
Well, now that ABC gave Bubba his way, Rush should sell his copy for viewing on a cable channel!!! The REAL copy of it!
Exactly! I believe the majority of the American people will see that it is the RAT/LIBS who have a lot to hide! Bush never said a word when Hippo Moore put out his piece of B.S.
This will blow up in the RATS faces, just like everything else they've tried. Bush always outsmarts them & they cannot stand it!
The Clintonista mafia gang still has 3 more days to get the show cancelled.
I'm still betting even odds that they will get it done. 1 to 10 odds that they will get the show so watered down it won't make sense anymore.
Everybody needs to fight back...
Did Newt see the movie?
Michael Barrone said it was a great movie.
Thanks for the URL. I sent a polite e-mail requesting they not alter the movie.
Dick Morris: Clinton Attack 'Outrageous'
Friday, Sept. 8, 2006
The attack by Bill Clinton and his allies on the upcoming ABC miniseries "The Path to 9/11" is "outrageous," charges former Clinton aide Dick Morris.
As NewsMax has reported, Clinton through his surrogates have demanded that ABC "correct all errors" in the docudrama or pull it from the air, charging that it is a "fictitious rewriting of history" regarding Clinton's handling of the terrorist threat.
But Morris claims that Clinton's national security adviser, Sandy Berger, and the president himself "were both responsible for failing to catch or kill Osama bin Laden on several different occasions."
Morris served Clinton as an adviser for 20 years and notably as Clinton's senior campaign strategist during his 1996 re-election.
Morris states that the evidence for this failure is documented in the 9/11 Commission's report and summarized in "Because He Could," the book about Clinton that Morris co-authored with his wife Eileen McGann.
The commission's report, released in the summer of 2004, "highlighted the weak, incompetent, hesitant, and inconsistent attempts of the Clinton administration to kill or capture Osama bin Laden," according to the book, which devotes an entire chapter to Clinton's mishandling of the threat.
"The report's account shows the president and his advisers at their worst."
They WERE NOT still editing, til Bubba complained!!! NOW, they are trying to edit out all the BAD things Bubba did!!!
If you liked Clinton, you'll LOVE Pelosi!
The fact that the RATS are threatening legal action against the miniseries, should give everyone pause to what they would do if they ever gain complete control of the federal government. The RATS would do what they can to restrict Hannity, Rush and even this site.

Heir Dictator Clinton Rides Again
Honest people have nothing to fear from truth or lies, their character is what defines them and allows them to rise above the lie.
Only liars and cheats are upset by the truth and try to silence any opposition by any means necessary.
The complainers would make "Uncle Joe" Stalin proud.
Sent and email off and got an automated response that was basically a sales pitch to buy DVDs of their programs.
Can you say "Their in the hip pocket of the DNC?"
