After "The Path to 911"

This morning I got online and thought I'd find, after all the hoopla about the ABC film "Path to 911", numerous reviews on the program which for those that don't know, ran on Sunday and Monday nights with an address by the President interrupting the Monday night showing for half an hour. But there were hardly any reviews on the Net except from MediaMatters For America and Daily Kos.

I searched the Net for posts dated Sept. 10 or 11 and found 5 posts from MediaMatters and one from Daily Kos called "The quasi-cult behind 'The Path to 911' "

Here's a little bit of what I found on Media Matters:

"Numerous reviews of ABC miniseries failed to note controversy surrounding its factual accuracy"

Summary: Numerous newspapers ran positive reviews of the ABC miniseries The Path to 9/11 -- calling it "factual," "meticulous," and "completely true" -- failing to inform readers that it has been sharply criticized as inaccurate and even defamatory.

Here are the 4 other posts I found:

"WSJ's Fund claimed Berger and Albright "persuaded ABC to alter scenes involving them" -- but central falsehoods remain" (MediaMatters, Sept. 11, 2006, 9:10pm EST)

"On Reliable Sources, Kurtz highlighted Medved's criticism of Democrats to suggest "liberal hypocrisy" in response to The Path to 9/11, ignored possibility of "hypocrisy" by Medved and other conservatives" (MediaMatters, Sept. 11, 2006, 5:05pm EST)

"On Nightline, ABC's Ross reported simply that bin Laden "was able to slip away" from Tora Bora" (MediaMatters, Sept. 11, 2006 10:55am EST)

"ABC retained fabricated scene showing Clinton officials aborting mission to capture bin Laden" (Sept. 11, 2006 1:46am EST) the teach
