Bill Clinton Calls “The Path to 9/11” Airing “Despicable” – President Bush Asks Networks to Preempt Programs for Speech

Former President Bill Clinton has joined others in his administration to criticize the new ABC mini-series “The Path to 9/11”. In a statement, Jay Carson, a spokesman for Clinton's office in New York, said “ABC/Disney acknowledges this show is fiction and in direct contradiction of the 9/11 Commission Report and the facts, and it is despicable that ABC/Disney would insist on airing a fictional version of what is a serious and emotional event for our country.”

President Bush has asked the networks to clear time for a speech at 9pm Monday, according to Boston Globe Reporter, Suzanne C. Ryan. This would overlap with the last hour of the mini-series. It has not been reported yet whether ABC will interrupt their broadcast for the speech.

The Path to 9/11 – Democrats Hate it While Republicans Love It – Last Minute Changes in the Works

The ABC Television Network is reworking their “The Path to 9/11” docudrama after prominent figures in the Clinton Administration complained about inaccuracies. Of course those on the right, including talk show host Rush Limbaugh, say the film is the best documentary to come out on the subject.

The extra controversy only adds to the hype about the film and may increase viewer-ship. The network says there will be no commercials, and says they tried to accurately follow the 9/11 Commission’s report on the terror attacks. They also reviewed two books on the subject and based some of the series on interviews.

Direct TV and the HD DVR

Direct TV and the HD DVR

With the inclusion of free or price-reduced TiVo-powered DVRs (digital video recorders), the benefits of DIRECTV have become so much greater. Particularly compelling is the high definition DVR combo that new DIRECTV subscribers can currently receive at a fair price. Of course the question to be asked is: If I can receive a free DVR with my DIRECTV subscription, why dish out the extra cash for the upgrade? There are quite a few reasons. How compelling they are will depend on you and your family's television viewing habits, but in short, if you own more than one TV in a household of more than one DIRECTV viewer, this piece of equipment offers several features whose advantages you will seriously want to consider.

Life before Television - Creating Your Imagery Again

Having a love-hate relationship with your TV? Tell me about it. Can't live with it--can't live without it, right? When my son was about age nine, he shared an experience he had while reading. He told me about reading something and, "... it was almost like being there". He's since become an avid reader which has helped him in all areas of study. A real parent's dream.

So what does this have to do with TV? I know, I know, this topic has been beaten to death; we watch too much television, it rules our lives and it's overloaded with sex, violence and materialism. Everyone's heard this all before; how the television replaced the family hearth, etc., etc.
