Matt Lauer and President Bush

Lauer Challenges Bush on Torture, CIA Prisons

NBC host Matt Lauer confronts President Bush on a fundamental apparent inconsistency in his interrogation policy: If it’s legal, why are we doing it in secret CIA prisons abroad? Cornered, Bush doesn’t answer straight. Watch the fireworks.

Keith Olbermann

Olbermann to Bush at Ground Zero: ‘May This Country Forgive You’

In perhaps his most powerful monologue ever, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann savagely harangued Bush for using 9/11 as a wedge to pit Americans against Americans. “Who has left this hole in the ground? We have not forgotten, Mr. President. You have. May this country forgive you.”

  • Highlighting this speech and last week’s “Have you no sense of decency?” monologue, The Nation called Olbermann “the best news anchor on television today.”

    Bill Maher Takes On ‘The Path to 9/11’

    Maher, along with guests Rob Thomas, P.J. O’Rourke and Joan Walsh, ripped into ABC’s undocu-drama, which pins the blame for 9/11 on Bill Clinton. Maher reminds us: As president, Clinton had a meeting a week about bin Laden; George W. Bush, before 9/11, had zero. Watch it on the jump.

    How Would ABC Fictionalize Other Historical Periods?

    A satire of ABC’s “The Path to 9/11” has popped up on YouTube. It envisions how ABC would dramatize Vietnam, the San Francisco Earthquake and the Revolutionary War. Not gut-bustingly hilarious, but significant in terms of how quickly these kinds of things appear nowadays. (h/t: AMERICAblog)

    Path to 9/11

    The Fictional Sandy Berger ‘Path to 9/11’ Scene

    Watch the part of ABC’s undocu-drama “The Path to 9/11” in which Sandy Berger goes weak-kneed when presented with an opportunity to order the killing of bin Laden. DISCLAIMER: This never happened in real life, and is one of the most blatant falsehoods contained in the miniseries.

    Check out this hip new video trailer about a new graphical book, “The Best War Ever,” which chronicles how the U.S. defeated itself by believing its own propaganda that the invasion and occupation of Iraq would be a cakewalk. It just hit the Internet today (Sept. 11, 2006).

    Keitel: 9/11 Undocu-Drama Should Be Changed

    Harvey Keitel, who stars in ABC?s upcoming 9/11-themed miniseries, appeared on CNN?s ?Showbiz Tonight? to relate his own concerns over the project?s manipulation of history.  When asked if a work derived from 9/11 held a special obligation to the truth, Keitel responded: ?Absolutely, you cannot cross the line from a conflation of events to a distortion of the event. No. Where we have distorted something we have made a mistake?and that should be corrected.?
