Bush 'assassinated' in British TV mockumentary
7 minutes ago


LONDON (AFP) - A British television channel is to screen a mock documentary showing the imagined assassination of US President George W. Bush, it announced in a move which looks set to court controversy.

Channel Four's "The Death of a President" mixes archive footage and computer-generated imagery to give a chillingly realistic representation of an actual killing.

In the film, the president makes a speech to business leaders in Chicago and faces a massive anti-war demonstration.

He is shot by a sniper as he leaves the venue and the investigation into his killing focuses on Syrian-born man.

The film will debut at the Toronto Film Festival, which starts on September 7, and will be aired on Channel Four's digital channel More4 on October 9.

2. I have to admit that the idea of making a film like this makes me
...sick to my stomach. Are the producers hoping for a conservative backlash by stirring up even more hatred against middle-eastern born people? Classic nazi scape-goating me thinks.
