Sheldon Rampton on The Path to 9/11, Wayne Barrett on Giuliani and 9/11
 

NEW YORK - September 8 - This week on CounterSpin: The Path to 911, an ABC docudrama scheduled to air on September 10th and 11th, reportedly falsifies events and lays the blame for 911 on the Clinton administration. Why would ABC insist on airing such a politically partisan program? We'll ask Sheldon Rampton, research director of the Center for Media and Democracy.

Also on the show: "When the legend becomes fact, print the legend" goes the famous movie line, and that could describe media's treatment of former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani's much-vaunted performance during the World Trade Center attack 5 years ago. A new book aims to dislodge what its journalist-authors say is a distorted picture of Giuliani's actions that day, in hopes that the historical record will be more clear-eyed. We'll hear from Wayne Barrett, co-author of Grand Illusion: The Untold Story of Rudy Giuliani and 9/11.
