This Sunday and Monday, ABC TV (owned by Disney…so there’s your OC angle), will air a work of fiction about the events that led to 9/11.
Advance copies of the show were given to OC’s own Hugh Hewitt and Rush Limbaugh, and the content of the mockumentary places the blame on the Clinton administration. The right-wingrs got advnce copies to preview, but Bill Clinton and members of his administration featured in the “movie” could not get copies. Why?
The show consists of scenes the screenwriter admittedly made up (or “pulled from his anal cavity”), so there is a big push by progressive organizations to have ABC fix the show or nix it altogether. Its back in editing right now.
One of my conservative buddies chided me for the Democrats being the Party of Censorship. I reminded him that conservative outrage led to CBS pulling the TV movie, “The Reagans.” Read some of that protest here.
Read “Ghost Wars” by Steve Coll which lists President Reagan’s contributions to the run up in terrorism, which I don’t believe made the “Path to 9-11″ film.
Former Senator George Mitchell is the chairman of Disney’s board; please write him to voice a courteous compliant about conservative media bias in this fictional program. Be firm and respectful and mention “The Reagans” program as a precedent.

I will be watching NFL football those nights.
