Alternet Censors Its 9/11 Readers/Commenters

Yesterday, I left two comments on LeftWright's blog entry (The Christopher Hayes hit piece posted on AlterNet...). I have decided to repost those comments as an original blog entry in order to draw further attention to Alternet's practice of selective censorship.

Comment No. 1:


As of 12:44 PM (EDT), there are 923 comments on "The Nation/Alternet" 9/11 hit piece. The vast majority of them are pro-911 Truth, and they all trash the author of that piece-of-crap article, as well as Alternet and The Nation for publishing it. The previous highest number of comments I've seen on an Alternet article (also on the topic of 9/11) was somewhere between 400 and 500 (at least the number was in that range the last time I looked).

Alternet must certainly realize they are antagonizing and alienating an extremely large number of their regular readers. -- Submitted by MJW on Thu, 12/14/2006 - 11:47am.

Comment No. 2:

Now The Comments Are All Gone

As of 10:36 PM (EDT), all comments in Alternet's 9/11 article are gone. There is no listing of the number of comments at the top of the article, and there is no indication that there ever were any comments; nor is there even any longer a place to add a comment. Furthermore, no explanation is given as to why they have suddenly disappeared. All other articles at Alternet still have their comments, so the culprit cannot be an overall technical glitch.

Are the top dogs at Alternet starting to realize that the majority of their readers do not share their opinion on 9/11? Therefore, out of a sense of sheer frustration, they made their reader's angry comments disappear (at least from public view)? -- Submitted by MJW on Thu, 12/14/2006 - 9:46pm.

Please be sure to click the link at the top and read LeftWright's entry and the reader comments on that entry (several of those readers, including LeftWright, replied to my two comments).


Once again proving that they can't win the debate if there is a debate to begin with.

The whole idea of argument and discussion bothers the gatekeepers. The ideas are just "too nutty" to even discuss, especially the more you learn about them.

Losing your credibility must suck.

"In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the
humble reasoning of a single individual." - Galileo Galilei

Just goes to show you...

when you become the gatekeeper to public discourse, then you can decide what we the people are allowed to discuss.

Alternet and the Nation are clearly anti-american publications. not even worthy of wiping ones ass.


Same thing with Oberlmanns blog on msnbc...if you write trash and your grammar is poor, it stays up. If you write about anyone who can give credible testimony to 9-11 truth (scientists, engineers, pilots, etc.) OR you post anything that is newsworthy about 9-11... they take it down. They are intentionally leaving up posts by idiots and deleting posts from anyone that has anything important to say about 9-11.

burden of proof

I don't understand why we're always the ones who should bear the burder of proof. The FBI doesn't even think bin Laden is associated with 9/11! Certainly we should herald the circumstantial evidence and testimony, but they should be doing it as well! They sit back in their seats and shoot us down because "they're not convinced". Well convince us that bin Laden and 16 hijackers did it! Show us the airport security videos which MUST exist clearly showing the terrorists enter the terminal and board the plane!! Show us the f-ing tapes of 77 hitting the Pentagon!! Catch bin Laden and put him on trial like you did Saddam! Thermite could have been used in the clean up effort -- how about the Koran, will, and passport could have been planted?!

We ought not be the ones bearing the burden of proof. When they say our videos could be "edited", why don't they use the same critical thinking regarding the bin Laden videos? We need to turn things around. When we post on blogs and get interviewed, we need to turn the burden around and place it on our skeptics.
