No Liberal Bias, You Say?

Interesting little interview with Cyrus Nowrasteh, one of the producers of "The Path to 9/11." You can listen to it here (turn on your speakers!).

The show is a $40-million, five-hour ABC miniseries which received seven Emmy nominations and drew a combined two-night audience of more than 25 million viewers.

In the interview, Nowrasteh tells KFI's John Ziegler the film is not being turned into a DVD because of politics.

He says that because there is no way to talk about 9/11 without being critical of the Clinton administration, under which al-Qaida grew in power and devised the plan for 9/11, ABC is not releasing the show on DVD because Hillary is running for president.

True? I don't know. But it's not impossible, and is something I've grown to expect from the major networks. Networks exist to make money, so when they voluntarily throw away spent money and then just ignore potential revenue, something is amiss.

Another lovely example of liberal hypocrisy -- they only like free speech that they agree with, or that shows how wonderful they are. Anything else ... well, see my posts on "free speech" in Iran.
