Prometheus 6 points to Alternet’s analysis of the sanitized Bush-friendly version of Spike’s pitch to watch his Katrina documentary beginning tonight on HBO. Interesting, no? Nice catch.

Here’s my beef though. Spike, why HBO? Only a minority of Americans (maybe about 10-13%) can even access it at best and um, a lot of them ain’t black. Who is the target audience? Spike wants to wake people up, but which people? Maybe rich white people?

I plan to watch tonight over at a rich white friend’s house. I am not happy about that being my only option, though I feel fortunate to have one nearby…
