"Google Bombing" "Path to 9/11"

Reported by Janie - September 8, 2006 -

Monday night, ABC is set to air a new "docu-drama" on the lead up to 9/11 entitled "The Path to 9/11". Many of us have heard about the factual inaccuracies contained in the film, including some key scenes that were entirely improvised and made-up. Brit Hume briefly brought the movie up last night (9/7) during his "Two Minutes of Hate" (aka "Grapevine") segment, but rather than addressing the problems with the film, Hume explained to his viewers a plan amongst Democratic bloggers (aka "the enemy") to "Google Bomb" the film, without even attempting to address the controversy the film has launched itself.

Under a banner reading "Dropping a 'Google Bomb'", Hume opined:

"Democratic Web loggers are so upset by that ABC 9/11 movie that they've planned an Internet attack — known as a Google Bomb — to make sure their view of the film dominates the Web.

Activists on Democratic-Underground.com have urged every Democratic blogger to post identical entries after the movie airs, all featuring the film's title, so that any Internet search for the movie will turn up a liberal blog highlighting what they say are multiple inaccuracies in the film.

If the plan works, bloggers say they'll be prepared to utilize the technique 'at every turn' between now and November.

Instead of addressing the problem - the inaccuracies in the movie itself - Hume goes after the bloggers that have taken offense with the propaganda film and doesn't bother to mention important facts about why the bloggers are upset, such as:

1) A key scene in which Sandy Berger supposedly refused to pull the trigger on Osama Bin Laden is entirely made-up. According to Richard Miniter, author of “Losing bin Laden: How Bill Clinton’s Failures Unleashed Global Terror”, the scene is based on an internet "myth" and has no basis in reality.

2) An FBI agent involved in consulting on the film quit during production because the film was so filled with inaccuracies.

3) The screenwriter of the film admitted scenes were "improvised".

4) An ABC insider assured a right-wing pundit Hugh Hewitt that "The message of the Clinton Admin failures remains fully intact."

5) 9/11 Commission co-chair Thomas Kean, who served as a "senior consultant" on the film, admitted certain scenes were not steeped in factual accuracy.

Hume chose not to mention any of this, but to allow his viewers to think of the movie as something the "far-left" bloggers are against. By doing this, he in turn lends credibility to his already brain-washed audience who will now believe "anything the bloggers hate, must be right!"
