[POLITICS] Editor and Publisher
, the trade publication, dissects ABC's "docudrama" about 9/11.
According to ABC, Bill Clinton pulled the plug on operations to kill Osama Bin Laden (in real life, he sicced a cruise missile on OBL and nearly took him out). And, needless to say, George Bush was definitely not listening to "The Pet Goat" for seven minutes after he was told the first tower had been hit.
The network's response, of course, has been that it's a docudrama, so it doesn't have to match the 9/11 Commission's findings. Or the facts. That would explain, of course, why they have only shown the miniseries to conservative mouthpieces like Rush Limbaugh, and not the actual participants in the events. They're like the president: they don't need
to know what actually happened. That would be giving in to the terrorists. And their appeasers.
One wonders why we have to keep hearing about the "liberal media" when ABC is putting Bush propaganda on the air.
The propudrama airs on Sept. 10 and 11, so there is still time, if you are so inclined, to ask ABC
to postpone the airing until they can get their facts straight.
I can't believe ABC is running this. The Reagans was pulled after protestations by conservatives, and I wonder if this Clinton hit piece will be next.
You know what would make this miniseries better?
Nothing says "serious" like musical numbers.
