Democrats urge ABC to withdraw 9/11 movie: PROTEST HERE TO ABC
MYWAY ^ | 9/7/06 | Richard Cowan and Thomas Ferraro

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."

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

I remember it well and keep it in mind every time it seems that ex42 might be about to to pay a price for his bungling.

I did not have anything to do with its production, but ABC has always stated that it was a docudrama based on actual facts from the 9/11 commission as well as evidence uncovered during several investigations. They admit to squeezing timelines and having actors play the parts of actual people, being a DRAMATIZATION of actual events. The Chairman of the 9/11 Commission was a consultant on the project, and stands behind everything in it a 100% factual... as in it REALLY HAPPENED.

Rush say it uncut and said it was very good. If ABS cuts or edits it in the least, I will not watch a minute of it.

If they do edit or cancel it, everyone is going to know about it, and it will just expose them for the lackeys to the DNC that they are, for those who haven't already figured it out (This is ABS Entertainment Division, not ABS News) Plus, that will create huge demand for the uncut "director's" version of it, which will mean it will eventually pop up somewhere. ABS has $40 million invested in this thing, so I can't see them just burning it.

I know some are outraged, and it is outrageous, but the Demonkats behavior and ABS's behavior being exposed here is actually a good thing -- it wakes up more sleeping pipples ...

I wish they had interviewed ( or maybe they did ) Paterson about Clinton playing golf and not taking the phone call about Bin Laden and also showed Berger stealing the secret files ( Let's see Berger deny that)

Complaint/Comment lodged with the Al-Queda Broadcasting Corp. The mere fact that they are all complaining should be testament enough to the docudrama's factual basis.

We can all thank Sandy Berger for removing all paperwork from the archives in his socks and pants. He paid $50,000 when he was caught, wonder how much he got from those he protected by his actions.

"The more the Democrats scream about this and try to shut it down, the more attention the whole series will get. This is great!"

My email to ABC.

Hello,
I am writing to show support for your decision to air the 9/11 special in its original form and urge you to not cave into political pressure to edit it.
The original version is already out in the public domain and the truth will come out anyway.
Editing it at this time will damage to your integrity and cast doubt on all your future endeavors.
Thanks for your time.

"Well, now that ABC gave Bubba his way, Rush should sell his copy for viewing on a cable channel!!! The REAL copy of it!"

"Why did they give out advance copies and have advanced showings if they were still editing it

Makes no sense"

As I understand it from listening to Rush, ABC showed a screening of it to a room full of Dims and Pubbies (I think at least a few weeks to a month ago). ABC supposedly did not hand out advance copies (one of the reasons Bubba and other Dims were originally screaming - they wanted one). Rush got his copy from Cyrus ??? (the author and/or screenwriter,I believe). Rush said he will see what's been cut and thinks if big changes are made, the unedited version will be all over the Internet within days (or hours).

If they edit it or cancel it, I will buy a bootleg and give free copies to everyone I know.

I don't seem to remember this kind of Dem outrage over Moore's movie, which was a whole-cloth fabrication from start to finish. I'm so disgusted by ABC's capitulation that I don't think I'll even watch the damn thing--now that it has been "fictionalized".

My posting to ABC:

It has come to my attention that you are contemplating pulling the miniseries Path to 9/11 under pressure from several high ranking democrats. This is a Facist, Gestapo-like tactic to prevent the truth from being portrayed to the citizenry of the United States of America. As citizens, we have every right to know the actions and/or inactions of our leadership that lead up to this horrific day.

I would encourage you to show some backbone and resist this revisionism.

Sincerely,
SFC

Good. I'll go too. It's so weak and pathetic that they can't allow ANY dissenting views, and really, the stinking movie is BASED ON THE 9-!! COMMISSION!!! Not loosely based, HEAVILY BASED on it. Liberals are so weak and twisted they just can't stand any dissent so they have to sensor anyone who argues with them, and this proves further that the networks are still now, have always been, and will likely always be owned by the political liberal left. The Democrat party doesn't even leave bills on the dresser anymore, the service of the networks is just expected by the DNC, and the networks never fail to come through for them. The whole thing is just pathetic. The networks are just three sibling whores and they never disappoint their most regular John, the DNC.
