Osama bin Laden movie to air weekend before election
(CNN) – Just two days before Election Day on November 6, a movie detailing the raid that killed Osama bin Laden will air on the National Geographic Channel, the cable network announced Thursday.
The film is being distributed by the Weinstein Company, owned by a Harvey Weinstein, a major backer of President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.
Titled, "SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden," the feature-length film will chronicle the raid in Pakistan, an event that Obama's campaign touts as one of his crowning achievements.
The timing of the film will likely draw some critics, as some may speculate the TV movie could portray the president in a positive light and have an impact on voters just days before they head to the polls
