Now I know my ABCs

I'd go further than the always astute Billmon; Disney suspected there would be controversy all along, and planned either to broadcast the mini-series to a larger audience as a result of all the media attention, or to pull it and generate even more fervent audiences for its right-wing radio crew.

If ABC/Disney do decide to pull the show, Rush can pummel his easily-agitated, conspiracy-minded* listeners with new 'evidence' of a 'liberal media refusing to broadcast the truth' angle, and ABC can sell the unedited DVD to millions of dittoheads.

*Here I go, alleging a media conspiracy by the Mouse and a broadcast network and I'm calling Rush's listeners 'conspiracy-minded.'
