Clinton lawyer: pull ABC docudrama -- UPDATE

Posted By on Thu, Sep 7, 2006 at 10:37 AM

You've heard about the right-wing docudrama set for air on ABC to help Bush through the fall election season by blaming Bill Clinton for the 9/11 attacks.

Thanks to Talking Points Memo, we know that Bruce Lindsey, the former president's lawyer, has written ABC about the matter:

We've just obtained the full text of a blistering letter that Bill Clinton's attorney, Bruce Lindsey, has written to ABC chief Bob Iger protesting the network's decision to air the 9/11 docudrama, "The Path to 9/11." The letter demands that the network pull the miniseries unless it corrects all its errors: "The content of this drama is factually and incontrovertibly inaccurate and ABC has a duty to fully correct all errors or pull the drama entirely. It is unconscionable to mislead the American public about one of the most horrendous tragedies our country has ever known." The full text of the letter -- which was first written about in today's New York Post -- after the jump.

Kos and Eschaton have lots on the Mickey Mouse network's cartoonish politicking.

UPDATE: And here's a tidbit on another major factual boner, unrelated to Clinton, but part and parcel of the conservative slant of the show.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
