But this is what news is like in Israel

There's a big hullabaloo about a program to be aired Sunday and Monday evenings in America entitled, The Path to 9/11.

In reaction, ABC announced:-

The two-part miniseries, scheduled to be broadcast on Sunday and Monday, is drawn from interviews and documents including the report of the Sept. 11 commission. ABC has described it as a "dramatization" as opposed to a documentary.

"For dramatic and narrative purposes, the movie contains fictionalized scenes, composite and representative characters and dialogue, and time compression," ABC said in its statement. "We hope viewers will watch the entire broadcast of the finished film before forming an opinion about it."

Funny, most of what passes for news reportage in Israel follows this pattern.
