Center for American Progress Action
Thousands called on ABC either to correct the numerous factual inaccuracies or not air its 9/11 mini-series, The Path to 9/11.
Tell ABC organized thousands of people to call on ABC either to correct the numerous factual inaccuracies or not air its 9/11 mini-series, The Path to 9/11. The campaign was designed to counter efforts by conservatives to re-shape the American public’s understanding of 9/11 and the events which led up to the terrorist attack, and to prevent history from being reframed. The movie erroneously placed blame for the failure to prevent the terrorist attacks on the Clinton administration while downplaying the involvement and failures of the Bush administration on this issue. Later on, Tell ABC was briefly revived with the Tell Hannity campaign. Tell Hannity called upon activists and ThinkProgress readers to demand that Sean Hannity inform the American public that his broadcast scenes were fabricated.
