This Just In
The good news: Scholastic has pulled its "The Path to 9/11" materials.
The bad news: "According to Scholastic Chairman, President and CEO Dick Robinson, the materials 'did not meet our high standards for dealing with controversial issues.' New materials will be posted tomorrow. Additionally, the new materials will make clear Scholastic had no involvement in the development of 'The Path to 9/11' and that the company is not promoting the primetime mini-series".
Because, of course, our primary concern was that Scholastic was involved in the development of the show. Um... right. Anyone want to question why they are still coming out with "new materials" in spite of the fact that they claim that they are not promoting the show then? *sigh*
