Speak out against ABC's "The Path to 9/11"

From PFAW:
“The Path to 9/11” – ABC’s factually challenged miniseries written by Rush Limbaugh’s friend Cyrus Nowrasteh – is catching a lot of well-deserved heat across the nation. The miniseries, which ABC erroneously claims is based on the 9/11 Commission Report, would give millions of Americans the impression that legal protections for civil liberties and liberal politicians were responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. That message isn’t just wrong, it’s the linchpin of Karl Rove’s strategy for winning the mid-term election.

ABC has already decided to make tiny edits under pressure, but that’s not enough. We urge you to call ABC parent company Walt Disney President and CEO Robert Iger, using our automated tool, and voice your opinion.
Here's what I said:
Airing "The Path to 9/11" would dishonor the memories of the men and women who died that day, five years ago. It includes misrepresentations of key events leading up to the attacks, and does not address the Bush administration's lack of action on critical information received by them before the attacks occurred. Former Sen. Slade Gorton [R-WA], a 9-11 Commission member, specifically addressed and debunked the theory that Gorelick's memo prevented intelligence-sharing between the CIA and the FBI in an August 18, 2005, letter to the editor in The Washington Times. You can read it yourself at http://www.washingtontimes.com/op-ed/20050817-101757-6420r.htm

I recently saw "Mr Smith Goes to Washington" for the umpteenth time. While sappy, the basic principles of the movie still ring true today. You have a responsibility, as a member of the press, to faithfully represent the facts to the American public. Or are you part of the "Taylor machine"?
Please call ABC's Robert Iger right now!
