ABC has dumped a new sitcom by comic Janeane Garofalo from its
line-up next season - prompting speculation the move was a result of
her anti-Bush politics.
"Reality Bites" star Janeane has received hate mail because of
her ferocious anti-war stance and is certain her political views led
to the axing of plans to screen show "Slice 'O Life."
A source says ABC is "a network bowing to the perceived power of
the Bush administration.
"Janeane is convinced her politics and all the hate mail the
right-wing lobby stirred up during the war is behind all this."
An ABC spokesman says the decision to not continue the show was
made independent to the anti-war furore.
