Those Stalinist Democrats

This post over at The American Thinker is rather revealing. It states that:

Senate Democrats are now making not-so-veiled threats against ABC if it goes ahead and runs The Path to 9/11.
A letter sent to ABC by these Senators makes this not so veiled threat:

The Communications Act of 1934 provides your network with a free broadcast license predicated on the fundamental understanding of your principle obligation to act as a trustee of the public airwaves in serving the public interest.
The post concludes with this:

Nixon was a piker. This is a threat far more direct than ever made by the Nixon Administration on the TV licenses of the Washignton Post about which so much was made in the Watergate affair. But it is just business as usual for the party that thinks they can do what they want without consequence. If this had been issued by the Nixon Administration, we would still be reading about in it the history books as the next-to-last step to a fascist takeover of the Republic.
Tolerance and free speech for me but not for thee? In touch with their inner-tyrannt.

How do these Senators think they'll pull Disney's license? Do they think they'll have a majority come November?

It makes me laugh that the reason they think they'd have the right to pull the license is that there are inaccuracies in the program. As if the media has never put forth any misleading inaccuracies that happened to be anti-Bush and anti-Republican. It would take 100 such programs just to balance out Krugman's inaccuracies of the past year!!!
