Was Showing of 'Seal Team Six' Two Days Before Election Political?

People have criticized the showing of "Seal Team Six," the movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden, saying it is an attempt to help the president in his reelection bid. What do you think?

"Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden," a made for TV movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden, was shown Sunday night on the National Georgraphic Channel. Some have said it was an attempt to aid President Barack Obama in his reelection bid.

According to a story in Reuters, however, a TV executive rejected the claims. Although ackowledging that the proximity of the election was not lost on them, David Lyle, chief executive of National Georgraphic Channel, told Reuters that it was shown because it was thought to be of interest to viewers. The movie chronicles the mission to kill OBL, something touted as one of the successes of the Obama presidency. 

Supporters of Gov. Mitt Romney have called it a "two-hour pro-Obama campaign advertisement." The Weinstein Company, whose co-chairman, Harvey Weinstein, is reported to be a strong supporter of Obama, distributed the movie. Weinstein was also the name behind the Michael Moore movie "Fahrenheit 9/11," which many believe was conveniently released in an attempt to sabotage George W. Bush's reelection bid. According to TMZ, Moore later sued Weinstein and his brother over profits from the movie.

What do you think? Was the release of the movie "Seal Team Six" just two days before the election an attempt to help Obama in his reelection bid?
