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.

ABC’s Undocu-Drama Airs With Few Changes

In spite of (or perhaps because of) all the heat and negative publicity, ABC/Disney ran the first half of its fictionalized “The Path to 9/11” miniseries last night.

    Roger Cressey, a top counter-terrorism official to Bush II and Clinton, called ABC’s upcoming miniseries “The Path to 9/11” something “straight out of Disney and fantasyland. It?s factually wrong. And that?s shameful.?

    Bloggers Rage Over ABC/Disney 9/11 Miniseries

    ABC is planning to air a six-hour ?docudrama? on the fifth anniversary of 9/11 that lays the lion?s share of the blame for the Sept. 11 attacks on President Clinton. The progressive blogosphere is in a rage—as evidenced by the satirical photo above—over perceived bias on the part of the filmmakers and ABC/Disney. (Check out the controversy.)
