"Death of a President"

Somehow, I suspect this movie won't get much traction, here in America.
British public broadcaster Channel 4 is courting controversy with what it calls a "shockingly real" television drama about a fictional assassination of President George W. Bush.

"Death of a President," shot in the form of a documentary, will use a blend of archival footage and computer-generated special effects to portray Bush in October 2007 arriving in Chicago during an anti-war rally.

In the film, Bush is shot to death by a sniper, and the investigation quickly focuses on a Syrian-born man. It will air in October on Channel 4's More4 digital channel, as well as at the Toronto Film Festival in September.

"It's a pointed political examination of what the war on terror is doing to the American body politic," said More4 boss Peter Dale at a press conference on Thursday.

Promotional materials described the program as "a thought-provoking critique of the contemporary U.S. political landscape."

Dale acknowledged that the program will be controversial but maintained that it was a sophisticated work meant to spur debate.

"I'm sure there will be people upset by it," he said. "I hope people will see the intention as a good one."

Channel 4, which is publicly owned but funded by advertising, was criticized last week by outgoing ITV Chief Executive Charles Allen for its reliance on reality TV shows and "shock docs."

More4's autumn schedule also includes "The Trial of Tony Blair," a satirical program about the future resignation of the British Prime Minister.
Can you picture Bush hearing about this movie? He's probably going to sic the CIA on the director or the producer, or both!

Personally, I'd like to see the film "Death of the Dollar," where the little green bill is hung, drawn, and quartered; stripped of its pyramid and its power over the people; and where fractional reserve banking and interest are banished forever.

Thanks, TomTom

The chances of seeing that drama on U.S. tv is about nil. But here is something we will be seeing soon: Clinton to blame for 9/11. The nerve of ABC.

Producers of the Drama: "Well, we know the suspect has to be Muslim of course, but what ethnicity should he be...Afghani?....no, no, we already blew them away, Iraqi?...no, we already raped and murdered them....Lebanese? Nah, that whole Israel-Lebanon thing kinda backfired on us.....hey, how about Syrian??? PERFECT, they're next on the hit-list anyways."

What happened to the days when all the potential assassins were Divorced-Middle Aged Men with a history of social problems.. working dead-end jobs while trying to pay child support and blah blah blah....oh, those were the days.

For all we know, this is a trial balloon exhibited to establish just how easy it is to fake material on film even as it pertains to an earthshattering event such as the assassination of George W. Bush.

Think ahead like the way these people do. If Abraham Zapruder's film was tampered with, a much higher percentage of Americans would believe in the Warren Report. If you can smear Zapruder in the most obvious way, by calling him a Zionist, then his film must've been faked to benefit Israel.

Why shouldn't Bush or Cheney be brought to justice just like any other Tyrants or War Criminals?

I think I read Bu$hco did hear about it and they were not amused. On the other hand citisucks was amused. As others have stated shows just how easy it is to fake video and make ficticous events appear real.
