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 Might Nix Pic

Variety is reporting that ABC may yank the miniseries:

"The Path to 9/11" is looking a lot like "The Reagans, Part II."

Bill Clinton loyalists are demanding wholesale changes to the upcoming miniseries -- and while ABC is making some snips, the alterations, insiders say, may not please the Dems.

But a bombshell decision may happen anyway: Sources close to the project say the network, which has been in a media maelstrom over the pic, is mulling the idea of yanking the mini altogether.

As for specific criticisms -- and changes -- the original mini contained a scene in which then-National Security Adviser Sandy Berger declines to give the CIA authority to capture or kill Osama bin Laden, even when CIA operatives know where the al-Qaeda leader is.

"This account has been expressly contradicted by Richard Clarke, a high-ranking counterterrorism official in both the Clinton and Bush administrations," certain lawmakers wrote in a letter to Disney topper Bob Iger.
Oh, so we're Clinton loyalists just because we demand that the events of 9/11 be portrayed accurately? Please.

This is the letter I sent to the heads of ABC:

To whom it may concern,

As you may be (or may not be) aware, word is out all the internet that ABC is running a pro-rightwing, pro-Bush & pro-Republican propaganda film entitled "The Path To 9/11" on or about the 10th & 11th of this month (September).

I would suggest strongly that you keep this pack of lies off of the air. As it stands now, by air date, literally millions & millions of Americans will be aware of your Goebbles-esque tactics and will have decided that your network (ABC), and all your local affiliates will be boycotted, as well any advertisers that have bought any airtime during this appalling display of bias & hubris. Underestimate the power of the blog at your own very great risk.
Do you think the American people are stupid? I would understand how you might've arrived at that conclusion if the company you are keeping are the likes of Cyrus Nowrasteh, Steven McPherson, Rush Limbaugh & David Cunningham. They (and apparently you) are definitely stupid Americans---clearly, the vast majority of us are much smarter than these un-American fascists. Equally clearly, you have so little regard for the American public that you feel you can simply shovel unadulterated extremism and call it a "docu-drama."

Your "docu-drama" is already being heavily promoted by Rush Limbaugh as "zeroing in on the shortcomings of the Clinton Administration."

Mr. Steve McPherson clearly has little regard for the majority of Americans, as evidenced by this crass affront to all standards of ethics, decency and news reporting. I am shocked and appalled at this blatant attempt to rewrite recent history. What's worse, involving Scholastic and appealing to the educators of our youth is adding insult to injury, and I plan on writing them as well.

The word is out on this piece of lying rightwing extremist filth & the repercussions of your airing this will haunt you for the rest of your (soon to be substantially shortened) careers.

How dare you use the airwaves in this despicable way.

Sincerely,

my name

BOYCOTT ABC!!!
