There's going to be hell to pay if ABC goes through with this docudrama

Digby notes that Disney flip-flopped when it comes to showing politically-charged movies. When Michael Moore’s movie which made $200 million came out, it blocked its Miramax division from distributing the movie because…
''It's not in the interest of any major corporation to be dragged into a highly charged partisan political battle,'' this executive said.
But now…they’re perfectly willing to distribute it everywhere: to the schools and to Republicans only of course…

Does the movie have the president reacting to the August 6, 2001 memo nonchalantly and staying on vacation while the country faced its greatest threat which eventually came to fruition a month and five days later?

Does the movie have a split screen showing Bush launching golf drives on vacation while the other shows Bush signing Terri’s law?

I wonder if the film has anything about how we OUTSOURCED the upcoming capture of Bin Laden in Tora Bora which allowed him to get away…

I wonder if the film has that infamous video clip where Bush is caught saying, “So I don’t know where he is. You know, I just don’t spend that much time on him. … And, again, I don’t know where he is. I — I’ll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him.”

Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 911 was based on fact even if he did kind of stretch the truth a bit, but overall it was based on fact and what did Disney do? They refused to distribute it. Moore did NOT make up scenes unlike this movie on the other hand has scenes in which the director admitted he made up which portray Clinton administration officials and Sandy Berger in a bad light. They bend over backwards and do their best to promote the movie. At least Michael Moore does not pretend that it is nonpartisan but Bernie Ward points out that the movie was given a R rating so that it wouldn’t be shown in the schools. Shouldn’t this movie be given one too instead of giving it out to 100,000 schools?

What are they so afraid of that they won’t distribute it to Democrats, liberal bloggers, Daily Kossacks? Why are they only giving it out to right-wingnuts? Doesn’t that show you that they’re afraid of what we have to say about the movie and they are tacitly conceding that the movie is blatantly biased against Clinton? What are they so afraid of? Oh, that's right, an internal memo said basically the movie was all about blaming the Clenis, I mean Clinton for 9-11.
But the blame on the Clinton team is in the DNA of the project and could not be eradicated without pulling the entire show....
You know since the movie has made-up scenes, I would not have been surprised if there was a scene with Osama Bin Laden meeting with Saddam shaking hands and plotting 9/11.

And to DeMint who says that if the Democrats spent half the time helping them fight this “War on Terror,” we would be closer to victory, well if Bush spent half the time on Bin Laden as he spent linking 911 to Iraq and misleading the Iraqi people, we would have captured him and brought him to justice.

Please go here to send a message to ABC

Very well put .. My cynical side can understand ABC so sycophantly cowtowing to the Bush boys, but now that he's clearly at the low point of his reign of terror, can't they just show a little backbone?
As the damn liberal CEO of Viacom stated, he had to vote for Bush because he believed it would be good for his corporation instead of voting for his political beliefs. Sellouts! All of them! We need to prove that the corporations should fear our wrath just like how CBS kowtowed to the "flying monkey right" during the Reagan movie controversy.
