CBS Urged to Remove Graphic Footage from Naudet Film

The Drudge Report pointed out a story from Reuters/Variety that reports that the head of an advisory board of 9/11 victims families has urged CBS to drop any graphic footage from a documentary about the World Trade Center attack that the network plans to air in March. William Schmidt, who is also the prosecutor of Bergen County, NJ, is reported to have written:

While we do not object to the showing of the documentary, we are particularly concerned about the potentially negative psychological effects that graphic details of death and destruction may have on the thousands of individuals who have been traumatized by the events of September 11th.

This is the latest development in the story of CBS's attempt to produce a program that includes portions of the video shot by filmmakers Gedeon and Jules Naudet on September 11. CTDATA.com previously reported on the contract between the Naudets and CBS and the content of the video itself in January and February.
