ABC sanitizes Spike Lee
good catch by the Alternet video blog...

Spike Lee was interviewed on This Week about his new Katrina documentary. The portion that aired on TV stripped out all of Lee's critical comments towards the Bush administration. Check out both versions and see how ABC sanitized Lee.

In video one (the top video to the right), we show the extended version of Lee's interview that ABC only made available on their website.

In video two (the bottom video to the right), we show the sanitized version that ABC aired on TV.

1. ABC means American Bush Corporations.

I'm really looking forward to seeing Lee's documentary, but I don't have cable anymore. I used to be able to afford cable. Now I just buy extra gas with that money for my little sedan.

2. Since the documentary is airing on HBO, I doubt if
anything will be sanitized.

4. My blood pressure just skyrocketed
remembering all the images. ABC and the rest of them have NO integrity. None.

If I remember right, HBO is showing the documentary tomorrow night. I plan on watching if I can make it.

who had to place a note with his dead mother when he had to leave without her

11. Yes I did. She knows what she is talking about.
Before bush was elected she predicted that if bush won, we would have to use are tax rebate to by a bomb shelter because he was going to get us blown up. She said this on the view.

13. I watched the full video of Spike Lee, and it is amazing.
He talks about Bush flying over NO and not having his boots-cowboys boots- on the ground until
12 days after the hurricane- too little, too late. Mr. Lee is clearly making an effort to contain his bitterness and anger, but
he does and thus makes a masterful case for the travesty that occurred. I plan to watch the documentary, but I know it will be painful. Spike Lee
is a brilliant voice. I wish the whole interview could have been seen, but hopefully the small clip will result in more viewers for the documentary . It is good that this program will be shown on HBO (not network)- Mr. Lee was likely given full control over the contents.

14. Oh dear.
God forbid BushCo would be offended by reminding them they are guilty of criminal negligence in the needless deaths of scores of Americans.

Is this documentary available uncensored?
