Ethical Reflections on the 9/11 Controversy: The Responsibility of the Media to To Tell the Truth
Do Information Science and Media Professionals Have a Duty to Provide Evidence-Based Information to a Questioning Public?

While it is recognized that through the use of meta-analysis and randomized controlled trials the standard of excellence in evidenced-based medicine (EBM) stands alone on a pinnacle, there is nonetheless an evidence-based methodology that can be applied across the board in other decision-making areas. Though research into the events of 9/11 has not yet attained the rigor achieved by EBM, it is still possible to rank the research in this field according to evidence-based principles. This article explains the principles, points to sources that exemplify them, and argues the ethical obligation of librarians and journalists to advance those sources .

Nine-eleven has done more to change the world’s political landscape than any other event since World War II.

Fox News about Ahmadinejads Speech at the UN

Applause for Ahmadinejad

Fox News: September 23, 2010 - 5:39 PM | by: Eric Shawn

Read more: was greeted by applause when he walked into the United Nations General Assembly, and applauded again, even after questioning 9/11 and claiming that the American government may have been behind the attack.

That’s right, applauded after questioning the motivation for the terrorist attacks, who was responsible for them, and essentially suggesting they were a U.S. plot.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has made a variety of claims over the years during his appearances here, but he never has gone this far when talking about 9/11.

During his General Assembly address, the Iranian President called for a “U.N. fact finding group” to investigate 9/11.

He also said that ”the majority of the American people as well as most nations and politicians around the world” believe that “some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining of the American economy and its grips on the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime.”

Islam's Encounters With America...........article in WSJ with interesting comment section

The Wall Street Journal has presented an article entitled,

Islam's Encounters With America

A survey by Elaph, the most respected electronic daily in the Arab world, saw 58% object to the building of the WTC mosque.


and a lively discussion developed.

I was astounded that the Wall Street Journal has not censored many of the comments posted.  Many of these comments would have been removed by Alternet or CommonDreams or Counterpunch or Truthout.

I responded with a comment and it has not been removed, even though it was boldly pro 9/11 Truth.  How long they will let it stay there remains to be seen.  Maybe some others could post.  Here is my comment:

(911TruthNews) – Attacked by the Left. Attacked by the Right. Attacked by “edgy” political comedians for scant, confused laughs – with no discernible purpose other than to discourage and further isolate those seeking justice. No matter if their political affiliation is Coke, or whether they lean hard towards Pepsi, everyone in the corporate mainstream media can agree that 9/11 truth is a target worthy of derision.

Yet, strangely, none of them can seem to get their story straight.

CNN tries its best to demonize the 9/11 Truth Movement

This is shameless, and shows that they are desperate now because the Truth Movement is growing. I feel the media is moving into criminal behavior with this kind of censorship and misinformation. Talk about a conspiracy!
The cool thing is that they admit that one third of Americans do not believe the official story. That was uplifting. By the tenth anniversary, who knows what that figure will be.

First, you can download the video from the show.
I have also provided a transcript of the segment.


We have all heard some absolutely incredible 9/11 conspiracy theories. The web of course is full of them. But tonight we're bringing one out that feeds on racism out in the open. We were absolutely shocked by one recent poll that found out that one in every three Americans believe the terror attacks were not the work of America's enemies, but some sort of inside job. And Deborah Feyerick found a smaller percentage who believe an even uglier theory.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This 9/11 attack was not by 19 Arabs. It was not by Muslims.

From Russia Today: 911 Reasons Why 9/11 Was (probably) An Inside Job

911 reasons why 9/11 was (probably) an inside job
09 September, 2009, 17:50

9/11 was the day steel-framed buildings fell like sandcastles, the law of physics worked in reverse and the United States Air Force went missing in action. So what is the real story?

By Robert Bridge, RT

Before attempting to identify “nine hundred and eleven reasons why 9/11 was an inside job” (which will start tomorrow as part of an investigative, four-part report), I would like to briefly mention my own “where-were-you-on-9/11-moment” since it has a lot to do with my reasons for rejecting the official version of events that fateful day.
