American Samizdat

"Hacking Democracy" is "replete with material examples of inaccurate reporting," Diebold Election System President David Byrd said in a letter to HBO President and Chief Executive Chris Albrecht posted on Diebold's Web site. Short of pulling the film, Monday's letter asks for disclaimers to be aired and for HBO to post Diebold's response on its Web site.

The legal grounds for Diebold's objection apparently rests on the fact that HBO would be violating intellectual property rights... since Disney/ABC already owns the technique of using "material examples of inaccurate reporting in the production of documentaries", which were purchased shortly before the airing of The Path to 9/11.
