Ruth Marcus: ABC's 'Path' Not Taken

Ruth Marcus of the WaPo takes on ABC's miniseries: "The linkage to the commission's report is made clear just after the opening credits when the mournful music falls silent and a black screen with white lettering appears: 'The 9/11 Commission is an independent, bipartisan commission created by Congress in late 2002.' And, next, a quote from the report: 'Our aim has not been to assign individual blame. Our aim has been to provide the fullest possible account of the events surrounding 9/11 and to identify lessons learned.'

The fullest possible account? Hardly, and certainly not the fairest or most accurate."

As John of AmericaBlog notes, she caught some things they hadn't even caught.
