petition

i can't sign this because i'm not american.




Dear MoveOn member,

In a little over 48 hours, ABC will air a five-hour "docudrama" on the 9/11 attacks. The movie was written and produced by a right-wing activist who fabricated key scenes to blame Democrats and defend Republicans.1 It's so partisan that even Rush Limbaugh was surprised ABC decided to air it.2 And an FBI agent who was brought in to consult on the docudrama quit because, he said, "they were making things up."3

Public outrage is mounting across the country, and Variety reports that ABC is now "mulling the idea of yanking the mini altogether."4 But we only have a little time to act. We'll start delivering this petition to ABC headquarters tomorrow at noon and continue as more signatures come in. So we're looking for 200,000 signatures TODAY.


Can you sign? Click here:
http://pol.moveon.org/abcdoc?id=8721...196elaWmSA&t=4

Then please pass on this message to folks you know who can help.

The Path to 9/11 appears to be part of a coordinated push—including speeches by President Bush and millions of dollars in advertising—to exploit the five-year anniversary of 9/11 for political gain. That's not acceptable from anyone—especially not a news organization like ABC.

It's not just that ABC's movie is slanted. Big parts of it are simply untrue. The producer himself even admitted to simply improvising a key scene which depicts the Clinton administration letting bin Laden go when they had him in their sights—a complete fabrication.5 Last night, the movie's star, Harvey Keitel, said "It turned out not all the facts were correct."6

It's really pretty simple: ABC shouldn't have any role in the political exploitation of 9/11. But this docudrama is designed to do just that—spreading a false message to millions of viewers across the country.

Sign the petition to tell ABC not to air partisan propaganda on 9/11. Click here:

Thank you for all you do.

Re: petition

Really, these liberals have to be the biggest hypocrites on the face of the earth. Just because they don't agree with something means it should be completely gotten rid of? Seems like a very Stalinist tactic to me. And where are organizations like the ACLU stepping up to defend ABC's 1st Amendment rights? Oh wait, they only bitch when something goes against the left wing. What a fucking joke.

I am not watching it and I could care less, however, I do like the nice thing they have in our constitution called 'free speech.' Even if it were left wing I'd still say it ought to be left alone.

You're just pissed because it skews against your views. Well hell then, give some money to Oliver Stone and he'll produce a great left wing docudrama and get it on t.v sooner or later.

lies presented as fact is an abuse of free speech, especially when presented to the general public through mass media.

Re: petition

You could say the same thing about farenheit 9/11. Liberals LOVED that particular drama and saw and still see it as complete truth when it had a clear leftist slant...no one denied him the right to release his movie.

Also, if you don't like it, turn it off, plain and simple.

Re: petition

jesus... your all starting to sound like fucking school children, arguging over who's turn it is to ride the damn tire-swing... and if it should spin left or right.

i may not be a republican... OR a democrat... but i'm sick of both types of idiot... and the arguments on this site NEVER change... democrats are too whiney and give too much shit away... republicans 'power overwhelming' and money for richies... or whatever the heck these arugments really boil down to.

Look, i just watched the show... FREE OF ANY BIAS... and i'll say it was a good flick, but ANYONE with half a brain in their skull knows that atleast half of it was pure speculation. Plus theres the situation of a certain DISCLAMER on the movie informing viewers that some parts have been 'fabricated' and other parts were 'overdramatized'...

Regardless, the movie didn't sway me "more left... or more right" ...it just made me realize how little we've actually done (CORRECTLY) since then.

At any rate, as far as getting into a poo flinging contest over who's dick is bigger (left or right wing) i could care less anymore. All this talk about politics is nothing but wasted pixels.

you can't change the past... even if hindsight is 20/20


(i'm going to have to make a filter that removes 'politics, religion and kyle' from any/all posts i may want to look at, so i don't have to hear the same old crap)

I agree with Jenn on this. I think the docudrama is a good thing, especially since it will promote discussion and (hopefully) help people think more carefully about some of the absurd claims out there.

many people will simply assume that it's factual and not look into the matter.

Re: petition

Neomp, the hypocrisy of your statements make me laugh. You assume every word of farenheit 9/11 is true, so you're technically one of those viewers.
