Writer/producer of "The Path to 9/11" acknowledges he's just a hack:
"The Path to 9/11", to be aired on ABC this Sept.10 & 11th, includes dubious "reenactments" of alleged events that have already been debunked -- notably, the "Clinton had Osama cornered, but chose not to capture him" myths conjured and propagated by RW shills after 9/11 to head off criticism of Bush and Condi's near-total lack of interest in Osama prior to September 11th.

Here's a portion of an interview that Cyrus Nowrasteh, the writer/producer of "The Path to 9/11" gave to a conservative blog, Libertas:

http://www.libertyfilmfestival.com/libertas/index.php?p...

GM: What do you think of Michael Moore?

CN: To quote Team America, hes an out of control socialist weasel (laughs). Listen. Im probably more of a libertarian than a strict conservative. In my writing and directing, I dont want to just be a conservative version of Michael Moore. Im here to tell a good story first and foremost - and thats why I can navigate the networks and get my work produced. (my underline)

GM: What advice would you give to aspiring conservative and libertarian filmmakers? (my underline)

CN: Dont tar all of Hollywood with the far left-wing brush. There are many people who may be open to different points of view, and you should try and engage with them. If your work is honest and truthful, people will connect to it, and it will eventually be produced. Also, you can just go out and make your own project. New digital technology today is really making that possible. Just be persistent, keep writing and creating, and you will get your projects made.

GM: Thats great advice. Thank you so much for your time.

1. Of course he is. It's such bullshit to call Hollywood "left-wing".
Hollywood has been far more tolerant of the right than Nashville has been of the left. With that said, DROP DEAD ABC!

6. Nashville is a blue city - I'm not understanding your point.
If you mean Country Music, well, that goes far and beyond simply Nashville.

7. ABC is your government.
I've been suspecting it for a while now. The owners of ABC or at least the higher ups have connections to the people in office. There's no doubt in my mind about it. ABC either wants the Republicans to stay in power or one of their Republican friends asked ABC to do them a favor by airing it before the election.

This type of film fits perfectly with the latest talking point that "democrats are weak on defense" doesn't it?

State sponsored media.

I swear, watching what's happening to this country is like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

2. "Libertarian" - the last refuge of the ashamed "conservative."
Once again, promoting lies can make money, so they do it. :grr:

10. How do we know we are toast? Because a major news network
is airing obvious propaganda and already debunked lies and literal fact.
