The Path to 9/11 - Conservatives don't have to worry

Apparently ABC and Disney are a little worried about a backlash arising from their hit piece on the Path to 9/11. But not to worry, they've already reassured Hugh Hewitt that he has nothing to worry about.
The Disney execs met all through the weekend - unheard of in this business - debating what changes would be made and what concessions should be given. Here is what looks to be the conclusion:

- There will be a handful of tweaks made to a few scenes.
- They are minor, and nuance in most cases - a line lift here, a tweak to the edit there.
- There are 900 screeners out there. When this airs this weekend, there will be a number of people who will spend their free evenings looking for these changes and will be hard pressed to identify them. They are that minor.
- The average viewer would not be able to tell the difference between the two versions.
- The message of the Clinton Admin failures remains fully intact.
Catch that last line?

It's nice that they are reassuring the Conservatives that this movie will paste President Clinton right against the mouth, while being unwilling to provide copies to President Clinton, Sandy Burger, or Madeleine Albright.

This from Think Progress, who have really been on top of this story.

I do intend to post on other subjects today - particularly an intriguing question from the mysterious but beneficent Random Goblin.
