HOLLYWOOD, POLITICS, THE MEDIA: It’s like one big 527. Documentary blames Clintons for 9/11 miniseries’ DVD holdup.

In Hollywood docudramas, when the phrase “miscarriage of justice” is employed, it usually applies to the film’s subject, not its creators.

But a new documentary called “Blocking the Path to 9/11,” to be given a screening tonight, makes the case that former President Bill Clinton and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton have pressured television and studio executives into quashing the DVD release of ABC’s 2006 miniseries “The Path to 9/11.” The privately financed documentary argues that the Clintons, who decried the original miniseries as a right-wing hatchet job, are out to salvage their political influence and legacy at the expense of free expression.

They told me that if George W. Bush were re-elected, films that made the President look bad would be quashed. And they were right! They just didn’t say which president . . . .
