Skip to comments.Dems Send Threatening Letter to ABC - and misspell word in second paragraph. (Idiots)
Posted on 09/07/2006 8:48:55 PM PDT by MindBender26
Senate Dems sent letter to ABC threatening to revoke their broadcasting licenses if ABC does not pull the 9/11 Docudrama that tells the critical truth as to how Clinton was very responsible for 9/11 incidents.
Will not go into the threat, as that is well covered in other posts.
Will point out however, that the stupid Dems even misspelled a word in the second paragraph of their letter to ABC!
"The Communications Act of 1934 provides your network with a free broadcast license predicated on the fundamental understanding of your principle obligation to act as a trustee of the public airwaves in serving the public interest. Nowhere is this public interest obligation more apparent than in the duty of broadcasters to serve the civic needs of a democracy by promoting an open and accurate discussion of political ideas and events."
Principle, meaning "a basic generalization that is accepted as true and that can be used as a basis for reasoning or conduct" should actually be Principal "the chief reason, most important element"
The movie has obviously struck a nerve.
LOL! The spell checker is no good for context!
Sciatic at the very least
Why even let people see it first to begin with? Someone is always going to want to make changes. Better to just ask for forgiveness IMO.
It is ABC's fault for being stupid enough to give anybody an advanced copy of the film.
Stupid and repulsive!
If you hadn`t planned to watch before, now it`s become one of those you can`t miss it. Then, with all this whinning, everybody is going to wonder what was cut. Of course, the Clinton folks are so trustworth, we should just believe them.
Unless this is the reaction they wanted.
Come on now,,,,,we all know that the democrats and Clinton bear absolutely no responsibility at all for 9/11. We all know that it's all Bush's fault. (s/off)
Since when does the DNC have the power to pull anyone's license?? That sounds like pure arrogance to me!!
Democrats have no principles; can't be expected to spell same-sounding words.
Struck a nerve because the truth hurts. Clintoon was so wrapped up in covering his and Hitlery's butts he didn't have time to govern. When he left office it was one of the few times I was thankful for the term limit on presidents.
>Since when does the DNC have the power to pull anyone's license?? That sounds like pure arrogance to me!!
It is. The message is, run the show and our FCC (when we get elected) will mess with you.
Sure they do. Remember how outraged all the democrats were when Dan Rather and CBS used FORGED DOCUMENTS to smear President Bush just prior to the last election? (s/off)
Remember the liberals' reaction when it was proposed that government funding not be used to pay for defacing the flag, and debasing religious symbols?
It was CENSORSHIP, and every leftist on the planet flew into an apoplectic rage.
Evidently they were being insincere.
Giving out an advanced copy stirs up controversy which makes more people want to see the film to see what the big fuss is about. Pretty shrewd on ABC's part.
Presumably, they had no problem with Rathergate, because the story MUST have been true?
LOL --- good laugh over here.
Ever since I wasted several hours of my life watching that utter piece of garbage "Amerika" back in 1987 I swore I would never watch another ABC miniseries. Networks have a defective gene that prevents them from telling the truth about anything.
Got a source for this one?
Thanks for bringing back bad memories! :)
LOL ........ ABC, just give us the bear facts.
The Dems spent more time denouncing this film than trying to capture terrorists during the bastard's eight years.
They make me sick!
Well, as for the "principle/principal" - truth be told, we here on FR are frequently guilty of the same. One would think, though, that these mental defecatives had an idukated person, a lawyer even, compose their missive.
(No more Olmert! No more Kadima! No more Oslo! )
I hate it when my principle paddles my nerves!
Dems are soooooo thin skinned...
The DNC "a perfectly legitimate" party... just being the thugs that they are.
The dems opened up a huge can of worms that will backfire if our side will take advantage of it. The dems lie and misrepresent events which are factual and for which it can be proved that they are lying. They know they are outright lying but do it anyway. Its called "the Big Lie". They learned it from the commies.
So now they want the FCC to forbid people from lying on the public airwaves? What about politicians? For the dems to be yapping about accuracy is incredibly funny. And what makes it funnier is this piece is based on a bipartian commission and IS accurate.
The message is, run the show and our FCC (when we get elected) will mess with you.
Not to mention the IRS, the Department of State (every time you want to film abroad), the Department of Commerce (every time you want to sell films overseas) and the FTC every time you want to sell any shares, to mention only a few leetle problems the entire company, and the executives, are facing if they find the b*lls to go through with the showing.
Hey, I just thought of something we may be missing! The message to the public is, "See how powerful Hitlery and her little pals are? Elect Hitlery and she is so big and powerful she can stop ANYTHING from happening"
Just so this little tidbit doesn't get lost in the escalating debate - and this was something Limbaugh said several times on his show today - Bin Laden, Al Qaeda and four teams of suicide hijackers are the ones responsible for 9/11 - not Clinton, not Bush, not the security screeners at Logan Airport.
Hollyweird is being strangely quiet....could it be they are a little taken-aback at this censorship?
"The fascist democrats are celebrating this "victory of censureship" in USENET POLITICAL GROUPS
They make me sick!"
I'm afraid if they ever regain power that they might make us all DEAD!
---Sure they do. Remember how outraged all the democrats were when Dan Rather and CBS used FORGED DOCUMENTS to smear President Bush just prior to the last election? (s/off)---
Libs still deny that those documents were proven forged. One lib was telling me the other day that it was just the "controversy" which effectively "censored" Dan Rather.
I understand Sandy Burglar is now the official spokesman for the US Underwear Manufacturers Association.
More open minded Liberal tolerance to advance free speech I see. :)
In essence, the Democrats have delivered a threat to retaliate against ABC. If the executives at ABC had any balls, they would read a copy of the memo at the beginning of each night's broadcast. And then a spokesman should say something to the effect that freedom of speech is vital to a Democracy, and that the Democrats should not engage in such oppressive leftist tactics.
I hope Rush has this on first thing tomorrow!
Indeed. On "The Grapevine" during "Special Report With Brit Hume" tonight, Brit reported that "Democratic bloggers plan to 'Google bomb' the 9/11 docudrama" so that anyone trying to look it up will only find moonbat putdowns among the first several dozen search results. So make sure your blog and website entries have "The Path to 9/11" "miniseries" "ABC" "9-11" "WTC" "twin towers" and anything else you can think of, and submit your site at http://www.google.com/addurl/?continue=/addurl.
They used to rail against such brutal censorship. They called it "McCarthyism." But as long as the Democrats engage in it, it must be ok with Hollywood.
They spelled it "principle?" I'll believe that when I see the actual letter, not a transcript on the internet.
The word "principle" is not in the Dem lexicon. Everybody knows that.
