Mary Katharine Ham has a great post (with lots of links) on the threat from Senate Democrats to ABC over the Path to 9/11 movie. It can be argued that it is not really a threat, but rather a reminder to ABC that the congress grants them the license for the privilege to broadcast on public airwaves. You know, like those friendly little reminders that mobsters in movies make when they remind someone that they have a nice little family that they wouldn’t want to see hurt. Real smart move, Dems.
Another thought…How Karl Rove got them to do this, I will never know, but they couldn’t really be this stupid on their own, could they?
Update: When I posted this, Kim’s post below did not yet appear in the pubishing platform. My only guess is that maybe I didn’t “refresh.” Sorry for the duplicate post. [Update: I figured it out and explain in the comments.]
Musing Minds reminds Senate Dems of this little “freedom of the press” concept.
