Disney/ABC hired right-wing propaganda network to put together 9/11

Well, here's another shoe dropping, and a rather big one at that.

My friend Max Blumenthal has put together an excellent article detailing just who it was Disney/ABC hired to put together its 9/11 film. They hired a clique of under-the-radar conservatives who have been making it their mission to infiltrate Hollywood and make it more Republican and evangelical Christian. And after all the drubbing the religious right has been giving Disney over the past several years (apparently the Mouse isn't anti-gay enough), isn't it interesting that Disney turned around and hired some religious right guys to make an anti-Democrat propaganda film.

A snippet of Max's piece:

In fact, "The Path to 9/11" is produced and promoted by a well-honed propaganda operation consisting of a network of little-known right-wingers working from within Hollywood to counter its supposedly liberal bias. This is the network within the ABC network. Its godfather is far right activist David Horowitz, who has worked for more than a decade to establish a right-wing presence in Hollywood and to discredit mainstream film and TV production. On this project, he is working with a secretive evangelical religious right group founded by The Path to 9/11's director David Cunningham that proclaims its goal to "transform Hollywood" in line with its messianic vision.
