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?
