Democratic party leader Howard Dean calls on Disney/ABC to reveal funders of slanderous 9/11 fictional documentary

Today, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean called on ABC/Disney to reveal who poured $40 million into the slanderous 9/11 propoganda film they plan to start airing starting Sunday, and issued the following statement:

"It's deeply disappointing that ABC would put something on the air that has been proven to have factual inaccuracies about one of the most important events in our nation's history. ABC should not air this distortion of history.

"The fact that the writer/producer of the piece is a well known conservative raises additional concerns and questions. The American people deserve to know who funded this $40 million dollar slanderous propaganda. Use of the public airwaves is a privilege conferred upon broadcasters in the public interest. It comes with a responsibility to the American people and a responsibility to the truth."
A lot more legal terms are being thrown around by senior Democrats. Use of the public airways is a term mentioned by a lot of Democrats in the past few days. The simple fact is that we do not give companies like Disney/ABC access to the public airways so that they can illegally try to influence our elections. When that happens, we step in and take away their rights to broadcast, as any democratic government would do when any entity, private or public, tries to illegally undercut our democracy.

Disney/ABC had better stop kissing up to the current administration and start worrying about the next one.
