What's this all about?
ABC/Disney plans to memorialize the fifth anniversary of 9/11 with a fictional docudrama called "The Path to 9/11". Written by an avowed right-wing activist, this work of fiction directly contradicts the accepted record of the 9/11 Commission Report. President Clinton and former administration officials were denied an advance copy; Rush Limbaugh and obscure right-wing bloggers saw it last week. ABC plans to distribute this docudrama to 100,000 educators across the country. We've set up this site to encourage ABC to change its strategy. READ MORE.

ABC Lying About the Source Material for the Film

According to this diary, ABC affiliates are sending emails out on the film that something along the following lines.
As stated by an ABC Spokesperson, "'The Path to 9/11" is a dramatization, not a documentary, drawn from a variety of sources, including the 9/11 commission report, other published materials and from personal interviews.
ABC Producers are saying that the film is based on the 9/11 Commission report, not the 9/11 Commission report and other sources. But they are also telling some reporters that the film is based solely on the 9/11 Commission report. Here's an email that Mekeisha Madden of the Detroit News sent to a commenter who asked him about why he reported that the film was based on the 9/11 Commission report.

Thank you for your email. This is an issue for ABC as they are the ones
who claim to be basing their movie on 9/11 commission's reports.
So ABC is telling reporters that the film is based on the 9/11 Commission work, that it's based on the 9/11 Commission report and other sources, and that it's fictionalized. And Tom Kean says that the film is 'reasonably accurate', but that it's also not accurate.

ABC needs to pull this film.

Target the sponsors of their top three shows:

- Lost
- Desperate Housewives
- Grey's Anatomy

Let's tell them that we are neither going to watch those shows nor buy their products until ABC stops lying about 9/11.

Let's get those sponsors to join us in putting pressure on ABC.

What about Oprah?

Incidentally, CNN is running the ABC lie and spinning the news in favor of ABC. I'm adding CNN to my boycott list.

Anyone know how we can all chip in on the lawsuits?
