Professor Stanley Fish looks at the phenomena of 9/11 truth in his new piece in the New York Times called, "Truth and Conspiracy in the Catskills." Fish visited The Truth Gathering in Livingston Manor, New York that took place on Sunday, August 15, as an undercover columnist, writing, "I was the only insincere one in the room. I didn’t announce myself as a columnist looking for something to write about. I let them think I was one of them."
Aside from Fish’s story, the growing 9/11 truth movement in the United States, and around the world has received almost zero mainstream media coverage in the West, perhaps the biggest reason why people have turned to the Internet for accurate news, reliable information, and informed analysis.
CNN, Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Guardian, and every other major news outlet in the Western media have not upheld the moral and political values of Western civilization: self-government, freedom, and reason. Journalists, and editors who have dared to cover the 9/11 truth movement have explicitly aimed to discredit, and demonize the largely decentralized group of activists, scholars, scientists, architects, engineers, firefighters, and police officers as "fringe losers" and "conspiracy theorists." But the truth is that the 9/11 truth movement contains ordinary people who pay their taxes, and take their kids to school. And they are not a minority. In September 2006, Time magazine published an article by Lev Grossman called, "Why the 9/11 Conspiracy Theories Won’t Go Away," who observed that; "This is not a fringe phenomenon. It is a mainstream political reality."
