Foul Mouse! Disney 'drops F-bomb' over '9/11'Confrontation sparked by non-release of 'anti-Democrat' ABC miniseries
Did the head of the Walt Disney Company drop the F-bomb on one of its own investors at its annual shareholder meeting Tom Borelli, a self-proclaimed conservative activist, claims Disney CEO Robert Iger scowled at him and said, "F--- you" to his face yesterday, all because of an ongoing dispute over the company's failure to release the "Path to 9/11" miniseries on DVD.
"So much for the family-friendly Disney reputation," said Borelli, director of the National Center for Public Policy Research's Free Enterprise Project."The Path to 9/11" is the controversial miniseries aired in 2006 on ABC Television, the network owned by Disney, but it has never been released on video.
The story is based on the federal "9/11 Commission Report" that probed events leading up to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.Borelli says it's because of political reasons, since the program depicts some Democrats in the Clinton administration in a less-than-flattering light. Disney reportedly thinks the DVD would not be a strong seller.
