Politics Target: ABC
Next week, ABC is scheduled to air a “docudrama” about the events of September 11, 2001—a “docudrama” that reportedly suggests that President Bill Clinton should have prevented the attacks.
The Path to 9/11 was written by a conservative activist and although it purports to be an objective account of the events leading up to and through 9/11, only the Republican head of the 9/11 Commission (and not the Democratic head) was brought on as a consultant to the project. Liberal bloggers are furious, Richard Clarke has issued a pre-buttal, AmericaBlog has gone into full-time anti-ABC campaign mode, and already one Congresswoman is outraged.
My question is, does ABC have any idea what we have in store for them this coming week, in terms of the pain we’re going to make them feel over this outrageous misuse of the memory of 3,000 dead Americans and others in a blatant effort to influence the November elections?
I’m simply curious if ABC is stupid or masochistic? Because either way, they really need to Google what we did to Microsoft and Ford (and AOL and Paramount and the Cheney family before them) if they want a taste of the damage we’re going to inflict this week on the network that has now basically turned September 11 into a cartoon, and a partisan one at that.
For ABC to treat one of the greatest tragedies in American history like some fictitious soap opera is beyond reprehensible. And for ABC to run what is clearly a false and partisan Republican hit piece only weeks before one of the closest and most important elections in recent history, is un-American.
Late to this story? It all traces back to a man named Cyrus Norwasteh…
