ABC and 9/11

There's hope yet. Apparently ABC is being inundated with criticisms from viewers as well as lawyers from the Clinton cabinet.

What I think is most interesting is that conservatives aren't even pretending that The Path to 9/11 is fair or balanced. They just keep saying that they need to get Republicans rallied around this movie, and that Dems shouldn't complain since they had Fahrenheit 9/11. In other words, they're admitting it's a partisan piece.

As Jonah should note, there are huge differences. Michael Moore makes no pretenses of being nonpartisan, and he has been lambasted for dishonesty and disingenuousness by people on both ends of the spectrum, myself included. But supposedly, The Path to 9/11 is based on the 9/11 commission report and is a nonpartisan docudrama to commemorate the 5-year anniversary of the attacks. Now that it's been revealed to be a right-wing hit piece on the Clinton administration, ABC should feel compelled to pull it.
