The Path to 9/11 and Freedom of Speech
I've been listening to the bruhaha over ABC's The Path to 9/11. When the Clintons and their folk started protesting it, I remembered a similar tussle regarding the Reagan miniseries a couple of years back but couldn't remember the outcome.
Thankfully, Captain Ed has a much better memory than me-
In short, when Republicans were upset over inacuracies in the Reagan miniseries, we protested to the network. They had the balls to stand by their work, but moved it off network TV and aired it on Showtime.
When Democrats get upset over inaccuracies in the 9/11 miniseries, they protest, get ABC to make some minor editorial changes, and when still not happy the Dems in Congress threaten to pull ABC's liscense.
So much for free speech.
But go read the whole thing over at CQ.
UDATED- Of course, Jay Tea over at Wizbang has a great piece on this too- The cure is worse than the disease
UPDATE 2- How could I forget Texas Rainmaker? Trust a lawyer to take this one apart piece by piece! The Cover-up COntinues
