disney/abc docudrama

abc is airing a docudrama in two days that apparently distorts the facts of 9/11, and was written and produced by a republican operative. it appears this is part of a concerted partisan PR effort to color the fifth anniversary of the event.

there are several organizations with petitions to abc asking them not to air the special: move on, true majority, and the daily kos has more information and suggestions for action.

i’m torn a bit by my decision to join the petition. i believe strongly in freedom of artistic expression. propaganda is not good however, and given that educational materials were prepared in conjunction with the film and then pulled, i think it should be kept off the air.
