Censorship: Alive And Well

Just like Republicans did in 2003 with CBS's "The Reagans", Democrats are pissing and moaning, demanding that ABC pull "The Path To 9/11". But so far, unlike CBS, ABC hasn't canceled the docudrama or shipped it somewhere else. They've only cowed down and censored it. I love seeing the tables turned on Democrats. But what's scary is that Sens. Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid are threatening to pull ABC's broadcast license. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the First Amendment protect this type of stuff from government interference? There's something wrong when elected officials try to blackmail a network to not show something they don't agree with. Could you imagine what would happen if Norm Coleman or Trent Lott tried to stop IFC from showing "Fahrenheit 9/11". All hell would break loose.
