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.

Charlie Gibson: What Say You?

Will ABC News cover or whitewash the controversy over "The Path to 9/11"?

Jesse McKinley at the New York Times and even the New York Post have weighed in about ABC airing a fictional and inaccurate account of 9/11, under the imprimatur of "based on the 9/11 Commission Report."

From the NYPost account we also learn that Thomas Kean is indeed a paid consultant on this project, thus trading in on his role with the 9/11 Commission. Very tasteful, Gov. Kean. No misgivings about making money off this American tragedy that contradicts your own Commission's report.

And now, after meeting all through the weekend, Disney execs are bending over backward to reassure right-wing partisans that the movie will still blame Clinton! This, when they can't even be bothered to provide the former president with a review copy?

Have you no sense of decency, ABC Entertainment?

Once again, Charlie: Will you set the record straight, or will we have to rely on Katie Couric and Brian Williams?

I have a diary up on dKos titled Path to 9/11-Big List of Action Contacts, which is a very large list of contact info and tips, from ABC/Disney/ESPN/Pixar/Apple, and unions, the FCC... I can't list it all here. Anyway if you want to take a look, feel free to use anything there if you want.

Great site.
