<nettime> Threat Matrix: Early Snapshot of the Propaganda War


Below is the description of Threat Matrix from ABC's website.  Since 
blacklists seem to be coming back into fashion, I suggest boycotting 
all media featuring the show's actors and producers -- heck, a boycott 
of ABC itself.

Ideology aside, even this would be boycott-worthy:  "The one wrinkle 
in Kilmer's dream-team is his ex-wife, Frankie. She's as beautiful as 
she is fearless and lethal."

Show Summary

Our nation is a target. Al-Qaeda and other deadly enemies are 
determined to destroy our way of life. An attack could come at any 
time, from anywhere around the globe.

Against this rising threat, the Homeland Security Agency has created a 
highly specialized, elite task force trained and equipped to counter 
anyone or anything that threatens our nation. The head of this 
super-secret team is Special Agent John Kilmer. He reports only to the 
President and has authority to call upon the technical skills, 
firepower, and specialist agents of the FBI, CIA and NSA.

Working with cutting-edge technology ? and vast stores of chutzpah ? 
this clandestine team fights the many faces of terror to keep America 
safe. The one wrinkle in Kilmer's dream-team is his ex-wife, Frankie. 
She's as beautiful as she is fearless and lethal. Together they've 
averted disasters of all kinds, except their marriage.

With stories ripped from headlines, Threat Matrix is a drama with a 
ticking clock in an arena as deep and complex as today's world.
