ABC=Another Bush Campaign

[Previously posted on my Vox blog Sep 8, 2006 at 11:20 PM]

Doubtless the "Path to 9/11" movie will be a ratings bonanza for ABC, but I wonder if it might backfire. I don't think people will forget that ABC allowed its airspace to be used to politicize the tragedy of 9/11. I know I won't.

Fortunately, this is an election year and people will remember at the polls how ABC helped the current administration use this national tragedy for some imagined political gain.

It is difficult to take seriously ABC's pronouncements about this movie being "prejudged" when it gave advance copies of it to Rush Limbaugh and his ilk, but not to Sandy Berger, Madeline Albright, or Bill Clinton. The astonishing thing is that it was said with a straight face.

The events surrounding that day should be held sacred in the light of truth, not lied about, not politicized, and certainly not exploited for the sake of ratings.

This is shameful and they know it.

ABC=Another Bush Campaign.
