Desperate House Members

Jonathan Schwarz points out that Disney has apparently become a non-profit corporation:
ABC, after exploring all advertising avenues, has decided to show its upcoming two-part U.S. film, "The Path to 9/11," commercial-free when it airs next week...

In yet another surprise move, ABC has revealed it will also offer both parts of the film as a free online download at Apple's iTunes Music Store and stream the miniseries on its own Web site,

So..."The Path to 9/11" cost $30 million and was written and directed by conservative ideologues. Factually speaking, it's predictably craptastic. And yet Disney is glad to lose at least $30 million on it.

Jonathan then reminds us that Disney refused to distribute Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" two years ago, a move which cost them some $200 million. But "Fahrenheit 9/11" might have hurt Republicans in that election year (not enough, obviously), while "The Path to 9/11" apparently blames Clinton for 9/11, which might tend to help Repugs in this election year.

Hey Donald Duck! Your right wing is showing.
