9/11 Flight 93 Rare Footage

Someone posted some TV News footage of the Flight 93 crash and claims it is rare. I don't know if that is true, or not. Here is what they said and a link to Live Leak in case it is true.

Ultra-rare news footage from the crash site of United Flight 93 which has never been seen again since 9/11

Why isn't something being done about this?

People need to get fired and put in jail.

Propagandists First, Journalists Second

The following article (same title as above) shows what has happened and is happening to the so-called "free press". Some of it is SOP, some of it is "yellow journalism", some of it is extreme party hackism, and some of it, perhaps most of it these days, is "corporate media".

We've never lived in the America we've always lived in — except in the ideal, which was always the point. You seek the ideal, and then fall short as reality sets in. But that does not mean you stop seeking the ideal.


How the New York Times Won 2004 for Bush

21/05/08 "ICH" -- -- Should the news media be patriotic? When a journalist uncovers a government secret, which comes first–national security or the public’s right to know?

In the United States, reporters consider themselves Americans first, journalists second. That means consulting the government before going public with a state secret. “When I was at ABC,” James Bamford told Time in 2006, “we always checked with the Administration in power when we thought we had something of concern, and there was usually some way to work it out.”

Funny, and yet sad.

Short, humorous, Flash animated movie. Very well done.


V.P. Cheney whisked away by S.S. on 9/11?

In the TV series, "Cities of the Underworld", episode "Washington, D.C.: Seat of Power", 2008, at about 8 minutes into the show, the host mentions, "In the moments after 9/11, Vice President Cheney was literally picked up by Secret Service agents, and carried under the White House through a long tunnel to another top secret bunker."

He doesn't state where he got that information. Since it is somewhat well-known and accepted that that action would probably be the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) in such a situation, the host / writers could be voicing what one would assume. Or perhaps they were actually told that by someone.

I had never heard that story told before by anyone, although I assumed that that is what had occurred with Cheney.

And then we have the person being interviewed by Alex Jones who says that some female Cabinet Member told him that when the second plane hit the second tower, her Secret Service detail "almost literally picked her up and carried her to an undisclosed location". (link? I think it has been mentioned and documented on 9/11 Blogger before)
