Tell KOMO not to air "Path to 9/11"

Eli Sanders of The Stranger reports that our local ABC affiliate, KOMO TV (owned by Fisher Broadcasting, Inc. which also owns KVI) is planning to air the right wing mockudrama and work of fiction, "Path to 9/11":
I'm told by a programming director at KOMO that they’ve been receiving quite a few angry calls and emails (and some thank-you notes) about the station’s plan to air The Path to 9/11. But as of now, the station has no plans to pull it.
Please call, write, email or fax KOMO and register your disgust and unhappiness with their plans. Here's their contact information, but this is the best place to write to:
And, if you're someone who likes to watch the local news, let them know you'll be tuning in to KIRO or KING in the future.

Meanwhile, Senate Democratic leadership is making it clear that Disney and ABC will suffer the consequences if they don't relent:
The Senate Democratic leadership just threatened Disney's broadcast license. Note the use of the word "trustee" at the beginning of the letter and "trust" at the end. This is nothing less than an implicit threat that if Disney tries to meddle in the U.S. elections on behalf of the Republicans, they will pay a very serious price when the Democrats get back in power, or even before.

This raises the stakes incredibly for Disney.
Let it be known: Bob Iger & Co. are on notice.
