ABC/Disney uses story criticizing commercialism of another story in order to commercialize... everything they possibly can (including yet another story). In related news, my head hurts.
I originally found Leon Lynn's letter and John Kovalic's blog via Wingman Curt, and when I RT-ed the letter link on le Twitter, it struck a chord with the rest of the community, so off I went into the woods. In the past I/we have made a case that corporate media conglomerate bullshitting such as this is trickle down from the many issues that extreme media consolidation has created.
Here is the original posting of the letter on Dorktower.com: bit.ly/LeonLetter
I'm very glad that Leon Lynn wrote this and that John posted it to his blog. I hope they both like this vid.
'A Charlie Brown Christmas' the soundtrack by Vince Guaraldi can be found on iTunes and Amazon, et cetera. The short film special can be gotten via Netflix or Amazon and so forth, although I warn you to be careful of what version you buy as there are different edits.
The version ABC chose to upload to Hulu after their broadcast debacle was the same, exact version criticized. That might have been the place to make it up to viewers, but again Disney really has no need to go out of their way and uploaded the compromised version...

Next up, Vlogs re: Impressions of my meeting at the FCC. Do you know that they have framed headshots of Obama/Biden on like every wall in government offices? They do that for every Prez+Veep, apparently. It weirds me out.
