Should the National Geographic cancel the Osama Bin Laden Special ? Vanity

Should the National Geographic Channel cancel the Osama Bin Laden : The Last Days Special in respect to the hurricane victims in New York ?

The New York Marathon was canceled in respect to the hurricane victims and so the right thing for National Geographic channel to do is cancel this show.
This is the last thing the New Yorkers need is to be reminded of 9/11 with people suffering from this hurricane and tragic event.

Yes.

BTW: Obama is now doing a pitch for the Red Cross. It’s been airing all day. That is a pile of horse dung too.

The Red Cross took tons of money for 9-11....but didn’t use it for NYC. I’ll never give them a dime.

I hear ya Sacajaweau your absolutely right.

Does anyone think that Mark Levin ? Rush Limbaugh ? Michelle Malkin ? anyone with a big voice or influence call the National Geograhpic Channel and tell them to cancel that show in respect to the hurricane victims in New York ?
This is the last thing they need to be reminded of is 9/11 they have enough on their minds at this moment.
is it to late to call them ? email them ? send a message on Twitter ?

Have people go on Twitter and call upon the National Geographic Channel to cancel the Osama Bin Laden: The last Days Special in respect to the hurricane victims.... they canceled the New York Marathon so now it's their call.

Just who gives a crap these days - fiction is fiction. If the History Channel wants to perjure itself here (ah heck, they have lost their credibility long ago - too bad), they are welcome to it. Just don’t expect the rest of us to go along! Information via TV is so corrupt that it is not worth watching.

The “media” has already said that Barry’s butt boy, Harvey Weinstein, has edited this campaign ad to make Barry “appear presidential” and more Ramboistic two days before the election. I won’t be watching. To show my respect for the Navy SEALs, I’ll watch “Act of Valor” while Weinstein’s campaign ad is being shown on NAT GEO.

I see it as the Liberal owner of the National Geographic channel's effort to help Obama with a November the 4th Special and hopes it will help Obama in the election..
It's just another Obama Campaign 2012 TV ad/special.

Aren't they worried that airing it will cause another mob attack on one of our embassies?

Don’t watch the program. If you’re a Nielsen family, or know someone who is, encourage them not to watch or TiVo the program.

I predict unusually LOW ratings for this program. I’m right.

Yes, you would think that any channel that describes itself as “National” and “Geographic” as it does would try to keep political opinions out of their work. It seems to be impossible for Liberals though. Too bad that they have gone the way of the liberal crowd - like most unfortunately. I really just don’t understand why they do that! Must be a Conservative bent that prevents me from understanding their leanings. I’d imagine that actually they just caused their demise though but they have no idea why...tragic isn’t it?

It seems to be happening all over so I would think that it is a contagious disease that is spreading even though an antidote is available. Seems to only effect Blue States.

Maybe these folks think that Socialism will save them (Democrats today) or maybe they hope that Conservatives will forget them when the purge begins. Okay, either they are right and we are becoming European Socialists or we are NOT and you will be lost in the crowd. You had better hope that you are not lost...

What’s the viewership of National Geographic? Are they advertising the special on the networks? Is there a football or basketball game on at the same time as the 0bama-looking-presidential infomercial?

The OPSEC Team is seeking donations to run their ad during the program to counteract what the Hollywood liars are airing. You can help them if you wish.

One would think that would be the case since it was a YOUTUBE video that caused the Muzzys to go all Bat crap. Sarcasm.

They won't cancel. And National Geographic is as left wing as any organization gets in America. We had a friend - that has since died from cancer - that worked there. And she was as liberal as they get. She was even the daughter of a General in the US Army. I refuse to give NatGeo money of any kind. Just watch their preachy 'documentaries.'

Amazing how much loot one can rake in, including HUGE salaries, when saying you are non-profit. Nobody really watches them, especially Obama.

I’m sticking by my prediction. The brain dead will watch it but those with half a brain or more are sick of the Benghazi story and will not watch it because they’ll assume 0bama had little or nothing to do with the OBL mission.

I read or heard that this will be released to Netflix the following day. Harvey Weinstein isn’t looking to make any money from it. It’s just a two hour campaign ad for his “messiah”. Just a gift from Harvey to “The One”.

Due to sandy I lost track of latest standings on this.
I heard national graphic refused a change regarding Romney as the villain .

Weinstein make requested changes or is this no longer playing?

They played Fahrenheit 911 before election and Kerry still lost .

Supposedly Nat Geo has already been threatened by the Muzzies.

If they show the kill, that alone could spark protests and outrage overseas.

But are any Generals calling up the filmmakers telling them to atop offending Muslims? Will Hillary blame the movie and ita producers?
Will they be arrested?

I think the Red Cross is headed towards the dung heap. They have become like the UN, too much goes into feeding the beast and too little gets to those in need. I will never give them a penny. The middleman is becoming obsolete, eliminate the skimmers. Get a zip code, look up the nearest church and ship them needed items. No more throwing good money after bad for the corrupt to exploit.

That could be. I’m not so sure. The Left just loves the Red Cross. Thanks for the comments. I agree with your additional comments BTW.

Although I am convinced their managers make way too much money, I’m not convinced their overhead is out of line overall. Does it rub me the wrong way that a charitable organization’s manager for San Diego was being paid in excess of $300,000.00 per year? Your darn straight it does.

The other problem as I see it, is that they don’t/won’t spend funds donated for a certain disaster, to that disaster’s victims. Obama was on the tube all afternoon and evening, hawking donations for the Red Cross for Eastern Seaboard victims. The fact is, funds raised for there are by no means guaranteed to be spent there.

To me, that is borderline fraud.

If the Red Cross wants to advertise and solicit funds to support the organization on general principles, go ahead and disburse the funds as they see fit. If they solicit for the families of 09/11/2001, then make sure the funds go to them.

Another thing. When you’ve already received far more funds than you could ever be expected to pay out for a certain calamity, stop soliciting more funds.

After 09/11/2001 the Red Cross kept soliciting funds far beyond the time they had adequate funding. It was criminally userous for them to still use that event as an excuse for needing donations. It was totally dishonest.

Exactly. It stuck in my craw then, and it still does today.

It made me angry. I’m still angry about it.

I think the “special” will provide a reminder of what the murdering Obama team did, or didn’t do, in Benghazi.

The National Geographic CEO is a strong Obama supporter. This is his contribution in kind.

No.

Why should the airing of any tv special be canceled just because a natural disaster occurred in new York or anywhere else? Makes no sense.

Because it will remind those who live in New York again about 9/11 ? Osama Bin Laden ? and that’s the last thing they need to think about after this storm ?
