ABC’s “The Path to 9/11”

Friday, September 1, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Andy McCarthy is hearing that fans of the feckless Clinton Adminstration are unhappy with ABC’s “The Path to 9/11” which airs on the nights of September 10th and 11th, and he fears that last minutes editing will be performed to keep the former president happy.

I am skeptical.  For one thing, that sort of Soviets-on-top-of-the-Kremlin doctoring of photos, or in this case, films in the can would disgust even left-wing Hollywood.

On a more practical note.  I, and I am sure many others, have been sent the entire six hour program to preview and review, which I will be doing over the weekend.  Edits post-distribution of the review DVDs would invite scrutiny of the very portions sent down the black hole, underscoring the episodes the censors hoped to hide.

No, I don’t think ABC would injure its brand that way, and certainly not when they couldn’t get away with it.

Instapundit concurs: “It seems to me that enough people have previewed it already that the consequences for ABC of making changes at this point would be disastrous.”

The early reviews are very strong for the docudrama based on the 9/11 Commission report.  The friends of Bill may not like the truth, but they have to live with it
