I haven’t been blogging about the ongoing kerfuffle regarding ABC’s “Path to 9/11″ miniseries, because frankly I find the whole thing somewhat boring. But if you want to get up to speed, just visit Drudge; it’s his top story, and he’s linking a whole ton of articles about it — including this one, which quotes Variety as reporting that “sources close to the project say the network, which has been in a media maelstrom over the pic, is mulling the idea of yanking the mini [series] altogether.”
On a tangentially related note, just a friendly reminder that the Discovery Channel’s excellent documentary Inside the Twin Towers will air again tomorrow night at 9pm and 1am Eastern and Pacific. If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend it! Also, Ted Koppel’s The Price of Security, which looked quite good in the commercials during Inside the Twin Towers, debuts Sunday at 8pm (and airs again at midnight that night). Other relevant Discovery Channel shows in the coming days: The Flight That Fought Back, tonight at 9pm and 1am; Anatomy of a Collapse: Learning From 9/11, tonight at 11pm; and W.T.C. 9-11: Stories From the Ruins, tomorrow night at 11pm and Monday at noon.
Another interesting 9/11-related programming note: CNN’s online broadcast stream, “CNN Pipeline,” will air CNN’s 9/11/01 broadcast in real time, as the events unfolded, starting Monday at 8:30 AM EDT.
Oh, and locally:
The Notre Dame ROTC units would like to invite the Notre Dame community to a September 11 Memorial Service to be held Monday, September 11 at 7:00 AM. The service will be located at the reflecting pool in front of Hesburgh Library. All are welcome to attend.
And President Bush will address the nation at 9pm Monday.
