What do ABC and Kevin Barrett have in Common?

Apparently, both of them are telling lies, but I find it quite ironic that only one of them has the support of the left.

Interesting that when someone wants to tell conspiracy theories against Bush's presidency, the left calls it "freedom of speech," even if those theories have absolutely no bearing whatsoever in truth.

Yet, a filmmaker who wants to depict a story of how 9/11 came to happen is painted as the devil, and as a right-wing agenda-toting lackey. His "lies" which, surprisingly, are based on true events, I guess, not covered by the same freedom of speech that the left so generously lends to the Kevin Barrett's of the world.

Is anyone else bothered by the fact that those who would condemn this movie have either not seen it at all, or have only seen half of it? According to the film's writer, the mistakes of both Clinton and Bush's handling of Bin Laden are pointed out. Yet, the left wants to frame this movie as having a rightwing motive.

It's a shame that ABC is bending to the pressure. According to Sean Hannity's show tonight, edits are being made in response to the backlash that has resulted from the freedom-of-speech loving liberals.

Where is the ACLU on this one? Probably busy writing more hate mail to the Path to 9/11 blog.

Truthfully, I wouldn't have even known they were going to show that on ABC, since I never watch them, without all the hoopla. If they change it to appease the "guilty", I'm not watching. I'll wait for the DVD. I'm not going to give ABC the satisfaction of adding to their ratings. :)

All the hysteria over Ann Coulter's book was started by people who hadn't read it too, so it's no surprise they're doing the same thing with this docu-drama.

To suggest that "the left" supports Kevin Barrett and his ilk is no more accurate than to say that "the right" supports Fred Phelps.
