The Discovery Channel special came across as a Public Service Announcement, and to the effect: Dan Brown is only a writer of fiction, do not panic, he is a modern day Orsen Wells, we are not really being attacked by Martians or the Illuminati! Any questions?
The Discovery Channel (or their sponsors) evidently feel the need to protect the public and is treating Dan Brown as a potential literary terrorist. Funny, I don't recall this type of TV special being aired in response to Tom Clancy novels, and if I recall correctly he's the one that came up with the idea of slamming a jet airliner into a skyscraper.
