Just be honest

I read this online, about the potential impact of Mel Gibson’s arrest and anti-Jewish tirade.
The first fallout from the arrest may have already come with Monday's announcement by ABC that it had canceled a planned miniseries about the Holocaust that it was developing with Gibson's Icon Productions."Given that it has been nearly two years and we have yet to see the first draft of a script, we have decided to no longer pursue this project with Icon," ABC said in a one-sentence statement.
Why does ABC have to lie? Oh yeah, what a coincidence, you just happened to decide now that you have waited long enough for the first draft of the script. Oh, please. Why can’t they just be honest and say, “in light of the comments made by Mr. Gibson, we have decided not to proceed with a Holocaust miniseries with him as the Producer”?
