abc911.jpgThe NY Times and a host of other news outlets report that three officials of the Clinton administration – former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright, former national security adviser, Samuel R. Berger, and Bruce R. Lindsey, a Clinton White House aide now with the Clinton Foundation — have written the chief executive of the Walt Disney Company, ABC’s parent, to complain that the network’s coming two-part miniseries “The Path to 9/11” is fraught with factual errors and fabrications. Their demands that the show be corrected or pulled were echoed yesterday by several Democratic members of Congress. Note that none of them is named Bill Clinton.
As if irresponsible filmmaking weren’t enough, The NY Post that pathetic fish wrapper – screams “BUBBA GOES BALLISTIC ON ABC ABOUT ITS DAMNING 9/11 MOVIE, INSISTS NET PULL DRAMA”
ABC, meanwhile, maintains that the mini-series, though largely drawn from the report of the Sept. 11 commission, was a dramatization, not a documentary, and that they had to “render it as dramatic.”
“Sept. 11 is not ‘entertainment,’ it is reality,” Ms. Albright wrote Mr. Iger. “Before you air your broadcast, I trust you will ensure you have the facts right.”
I’m a 9/11 survivor. Absolutely nothing about Sept. 11, 2001 was entertaining and there’s no reason to make it any more dramatic.
