Excellent article. I couldn't begin to imagine how The Path could have gotten so far afield. It wasn't imagination, it was deliberate.
Now, the show seems unquestionably tainted. At this point, this seems a no-win situation for Disney/ABC, the producers, the advertising sponsors, democrats, or republicans, not to mention the viewers. Displaying a "this is not a documentary" card several times during the show is ineffectual in stopping the hemorrhaging of right-wing lies, inuendos, and conspiracy theories.
I'm completely in favor of dramatic license to tell a story as long as the fundamentals are correct. But if one can't be true to the facts that are known, how can people begin to debate the greater issues history has presented us.
One has to wonder about the corporate culture at Disney/ABC when liberals and conservatives agree that the truth is not being told.
