BREAKING - Disney caves in, will not air 911 movie
Disney are now saying they will not release a film politicizing 9/11 so close to an election.

Oops, my mistake, sorry... It was 2 years ago and the movie was called Fahrenheit 9/11.

46. Totally funny. Satirical. To the point. Not in the Greatest section
no reason to get in a fuss about someone zinging you. It poignantly illustrates the tragedy and horribleness of the situation. If it makes you feel yucky for a minute... well it sure is a horrible and yucky situation.

I am just exposing their hypocrisy. They refused to distribute Fahrenheit 9/11 because in their words they don't want to be associated with a movie politicising 911 so close to an election. Now they are doing exactly that.

A definite "gotcha" (and some of us NEED the humor)and absolutely on point--we needed a reminder of the hypocrisy re F911.

20. Wait a second
Buddy, you may have discovered some ammo against ABC/Disney. Shouldn't we all be asking why they are releasing their 9/11 TV-movie so close to an election even though they used the same rationale to cancel Farenheit 9/11's release? Seems like a good chance to question them on their hypocrisy and put them on the spot.

76. Yes, definitely. Of course they'll say that F-9/11 was biased ...
... while "Path to 9/11" is based on the 9/11 Commission Report. (I know, I know; I'm just hypothesizing the BS they'd spew.)

62. Great post, there is no reason for anyone to be upset at you...
Other than the word "breaking" your subject line is totally accurate, and it truly points out the hypocrisy of the administration.

People have to remember satire is not always based on things that are funny, satire takes aim at deadly serious issues. Sometimes we need to poke fun at deadly serious things however, in order to make people reallly think about those issues.

I have written some satire that I am sure some people were highly offended by, I poke fun at the extreme violence that is going on in Iraq. I make jokes about the children that were killed by our bombs. But those jokes are not meant to be an attack on those children, rather they are meant to make people think about the brutality of this war and to recognize the hypocrisy of people like Bush who talk about spreading peace and freedom while commiting these atrocities.

Remember Charlie Chaplin made a movie making fun of Hitler and the Nazi regime. Sometimes satire does look at deadly serious issues in humorous way, and rather than just getting offended we need to look at what the joke is really trying to tell us.

So lighten up everyone and don't be afraid to make jokes like this yourselves.

75. Yes, and consider that one movie was dropped from theatrical release...
Edited on Fri Sep-08-06 05:02 AM by krkaufman
... while the other is planned for a commercial-free airing over the public airwaves for all to be misled. And consider that use of the public airwaves comes with a responsibility to air material in the public interest, not just in the interest of one batsh*t crazy extremist segment of the population.

83. The Dems need to reinstate the FAIRNESS DOCTRINE on the media.

This is getting really ugly. Propaganda passing as facts is just the tip of the iceburg that will surely sink this nation into a Psuedo Fascist state controlled by corporate interests that OWN all the tools to misslead, and hide the truth from the nation.

but I have to tell you this thread title got my hopes way up, only to have them crash and burn when I read the actual post. Not your fault and I know not your intention, just how I felt.

91. Not Funny, self-evident point
Of course even self-evident points can be good ones...

But this is in bad taste.

Why? Lots of reasons.

For one we already have the MSM to misinform us.

Democratic underground is used by many of us to quickly catch up on whats going on in the news. One can check out the Breaking news section, check out the greatest page, maybe not click on everything, and get a general idea of current events.

But then there are irresponsible posts like this one. It puts out wrong information that may discredit DU in general. _I_ understand satire, _you_ understant satire but not everyone does, especially those that are just looking for reason to make DU look bad.

Another reason is that bait and switch is just sleazy and frustrating in general.
