Osama bin Laden Film

A film dramatizing the death of Osama bin Laden will debut next month on the National Geographic Channel, two days before the presidential election.  The channel says it will air “Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden,” distributed by The Weinstein Co., on Sunday, Nov. 4.  Company co-chairman Harvey Weinstein is a prominent fundraiser for President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.  National Geographic Channel President Howard T. Owens said Thursday that the film's air date is unrelated to politics and was chosen to help promote the start of the channel's fall season.  He says Weinstein doesn't schedule the network's programming.
