    Disney steers clear of 'Path to 9/11'

    Disney steers clear of 'Path to 9/11'

    "The Path to 9/11"

    Top brass at Disney were called on Thursday to defend their decision not to release "The Path to 9/11" on DVD and to justify CEO Robert Iger's $27.7 million pay package.

    "Path" was a 2006 ABC miniseries critical of President Bill Clinton's handling of terrorist threats that was so controversial it prompted leading Democrats to ask Disney not to air the program. Disney, after making some hasty edits, ran it commercial-free.

    At Disney's annual shareholders' meeting in Albuquerque, N.M., one mutual fund portfolio manager said it was high time Disney turn "Path" into a DVD and recoup some of the $40 million it spent on the project.

    The fund manager, Tom Borelli, accused Iger of protecting HIllary Clinton's presidential campaign at the expense of shareholders and pointed out that Iger has been a steady Clinton donor since before the former first lady was elected to the Senate.

    He claimed to have a letter from a Lionsgate representative proving that Disney has no intention of even selling the DVD rights to another company.

    I will be happy if all copies of that movie are burned. Disney should be ashamed of themselves for airing such blatently one-sided propaganda.

    And censorship is the way to deal with it? Honestly, if you watch the movie it's very critical of the Bush administration also. Balls were dropped all over the place. Both administrations did things wrong. Both did things right. Deal with it.

    I don't think the movie should actually be censored, I was being a little sarcastic. Anyway, if they won't release Song of the South on DVD then they shouldn't release this.

    Seriously, though, who's going to run out and buy that DVD?

    I guess they'd still make some money back with movie rental outlets like Blockbuster and Netflix though, right?
