This afternoon, Scholastic announced that they are pulling the original "guide" to the ABC GOP-U-Drama (thanks, KO) The Path to 9-11 that was not at all objective or accurately reflecting the FACTS of the 9/11 Commission Report. The company was evidently, overwhelmed by the calls and e-mails generated by bloggers like us.
But, we need to keep smacking ABC/Disney upside the head. Here is a list of ABC affiliates nationally. If it says O&O next to the station name, that means the station is owned by ABC, and can't decide not to air the program. All others are fair game -- they can pull the 9/11 crock-u-drama if they want, just like stations pre-empt for local events and sporting broadcasts all the time.
Here's the WTNH contact info:

While I think Geoff Fox and Dr. Mel are the most accurate weather people in the market, if WTNH doesn't step up on this one, I'll be watching elsewhere --- I never liked Desperate Housewives, anyway.
