Cheney Warns Disney/ABC To Stay With Republicans Or Else

Burbank, California - The stakes in the ongoing battle over the airing of The Path To 9/11 grew even more acrimonious today when Vice President Dick Cheney openly threatened Disney with retaliation if they back down in the face of intense criticism over the gross inaccuracies and outright distortions of the miniseries.

Apparently, the White House and top Republican leaders were concerned that their alliance with Disney was in jeopardy due to the disclosure that the highly partisan fictional docudrama was financed and planned by right-wing groups intent on influencing the elections in November. This has placed even more pressure on ABC and its parent company Disney to pull the deeply flawed and politically motivated program. Fearing that eventuality, the White House decided to act by personally confronting Robert A. Iger, the President and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company.

Sources close to Iger tell Assimilated Press that Cheney cornered the CEO of Disney during a board meeting and, in a heated exchange, told Iger that if he backed down and canceled The Path to 9/11, there would be severe consequences. The next morning, Iger awoke from a sound sleep and found the bloody head of a mouse under his sheets.

Asked to comment on these reports, Cheney smiled and said, "When I ran Halliburton I learned that you had to break a few eggs to make an egg salad sandwich."

Thanks, Virt. Assimilated Press always manages to get to the heart of things. (Mouse head indeed!)

I'd be inclined to believe that this story is not fiction considering the past actions of our criminals in charge.

OMG!

You write as if what you say is true and gospel & all I can see is you are a fearful, pride-filled, arrogant, partisan blogger who does more harm than good (especially in the department of civil unrest). Bully for you, you are a herder w/ bias and undocumented crap... yeah!
