This from my friend Jason Apuzzo at Libertas:
“Senate Democrats, in an oily and misleading letter to Disney’s Rober Iger, are now implying they may revoke ABC’s license to broadcast over the public airwaves if ABC broadcasts The Path to 9/11. These are the same Democrats, incidentally, who may be running the Senate in a few weeks.
“This is a horrifying and ugly development. I’m not aware of a circumstance in my lifetime in which filmmakers’ right to free expression has been so endangered. Particularly disgusting to me is that these Democrats (Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Debbie Stabenow, Charles Schumer and Byron Dorgan) have singled-out writer-producer Cyrus Nowrasteh and “conservative blogs” of a certain “political leaning.” It is apparently now becoming illegal for conservatives to actually make films in Hollywood.
“Make no mistake about what’s going on here: the Democratic Party is hearing the first whispers of opposition to their dominance of Hollywood, and they’re trying to crush that opposition right now. They are now threatening to revoke ABC’s license, merely because ABC may have the temerity to broadcast a film critical of the Clintons. [The miniseries is also critical of the Bush Administration, and of Condi Rice in particular.] If this is allowed to happen, the consequences for free speech in this country will be dire. And the damage may already have been done.”
