Stop ABC's 9/11 Crockumentary

If you've been anywhere on the internets over the last week, you are probably aware that on Sunday and Monday ABC is set to air a "docudrama" billed as "based on the 9/11 Commission Report" when it is, in fact, riddled with fabrications designed to blame 9/11 on the ineptitude of the Clinton Administration, and whitewashing the failures of Bush.

ABC is exploiting the fifth anniversary of the attacks with a free propaganda piece designed to set Republicans up for the Fall mid-term elections.

If ABC still airs their GOP campaign miniseries, you can't complain about it if you sat on your ass. Rumors abound that they might pull it off the air—time to keep the pressure on, not relax.

Done. Signed the one for True Majority.

Should we really set out to suppress this crappy propaganda piece? Isn't that the kind of thing that makes anything-to-win gang so rotten?

Maybe it's better to raise a whole lot of noisy hell about its inaccuracies and the timing.

This is the kind of thing that breaks my heart and ashamed of our country. I just can't understand why this kind of thing has to happen. The republican blogs are all outraged that democrats are protesting. But then they forget about the stink they rose about the Reagan documentary. Hypocrites. Let's hope this gets cancelled. It would be so wrong if it wasn't.
