A Year in Review - 9/11 Media Coverage in 2006

Paying attention to 9/11 related news on a daily basis kinda distorts the view of how much media coverage there actually HAS been regarding 9/11 skepticism in the last year. Below is a listing I put together of all of the somewhat-major news coverage of the 9/11 truth movement in 2006. I am sure there are a few things missing here and there, but having a listing like this puts into perspective how much 9/11 discussion there has been in the last year, and how much further 9/11 truth has been forced into the public eye.

This listing is NOT a listing of the major news this year, but rather a listing of the major media coverage and discussion which resulted as a response to the growing 9/11 movement.

The 9/11 truth movement has now forced 9/11 documentaries onto netflix.com, has gotten hosts like Mike Malloy and Randi Rhodes talking, has been shown numerous times on CSPAN, is the subject of countless books, was the focus of a number of political hopefuls, and more. While the listing above shows just how much media coverage 9/11 truth has garnered in 2006, there are countless other articles which would most certainly need to be in any full 2006 year-end review. Rather than writing up such a full encompassing 2006 year end review (which would be about impossible) please feel free to comment on what you consider to be the big happenings of 2006 related to 9/11 skepticism.

A very huge thank you to everyone who has helped us cover 2006, and best wishes for the new year!

Great List...

thanks! honestly after


honestly after spending 4+ hours just reviewing the titles of all the things posted in 2006 i really want to write 'a year in review - where the media wasnt' - because there were a bunch of big news items which got zero media coverage.. and really that is a news item deserving media attention in itself.

do it! I think that'd be stellar...

and a great piece for us to pass along.

but yeah, ditto on the good job

I'm an expert...

At what the media DOESN'T cover, so if you want help, let me know.

"We've been offered a unique opportunity and we must not let this moment pass."

depleted uranium...

used by the us and israeli armed forces would be a good start.

Regarding 9/11...

Mostly everything they've ever said after the 9/11 Commission released its' report.

The 9/11 Families

The release of 9/11 Press For Truth, the families calling for a new investigation, creating the petition, etc... Not a word, except from Rawstory.

The PNAC. I'm not talking about a simple mentioning, I'm talking about an in depth analysis.

The environmental impact (outside of NYC).

Sibel Edmonds (aside from a very few appearances).

Pakistan and 9/11.

Just to name a few.

Thanks DZ

For all your effort.

would be good...

This would be a good list to refer Bill O'Reilly to next time he says that if the conspiracy theorists had any validity, it would be picked up on by the mainstream media.

good thinking! :)

good thinking! :)

What about the newspaper in

What about the newspaper in Oregon?  The Ashland Times or something...  (long 4 days... sorry names escape me)

the list

great list. There was also Le Monde Diplomatique's article on Loose Change last summer.

Great Idea.

I was just thinking this would be an awesome idea to put together a list like this. This is the hard work that so few of us in the movement want to do. Just like Howard Dean does a lot of the hard work that no one else wants to do in the Democratic Party. This is awesome. I think it would be cool to have a permanent place on the homepage where we highlight when popular media covers our topics. Like when Barbara Streisand's husband was on the View, or Charlie Sheen was on CNN, etc. Even Borat mentions nine eleven in his movie, and I also like the trend that seems that each month gets more and more media mentions of 9/11 as we get further into 2006 and hopefully that trend continues in 2007 until we can't see news without some mention of this crime by the Bush Family. Or as Mike Malloy says "The Bush Crime Family" Amen guys. Good job.

"The Truth is an Offense, but not a Sin" ~ Bob Marley

-But just one official 'whistleblower'?

Add this to your list. I must remind the New York faction that we are still very poor on back-dated research on the process of building #7. You may debate everything I have to say, but you will never prove me wrong on the mysteries surrounding the actual steel work phase -after- the steel-work phase!
-Go figure!


First they ridicule you, then you look for better ways to be entertained!

Italian International Conference

Great idea, but you missed the Italian International Conference on 9/11, which was held in Bologna, September 11th 2006. I know, a complete review of all events around the world was, and possibly is, impossible. Nonetheless, the Italian Conference was the biggest one ever organized in Europe, and received great attention in the community of 911 reseachers. Its complete video is even avalilable in the internet (see "arcoirisTV" and search for Menzogna globale. Have a look, it is a real experience).

In any case, your idea was a good one and should be, in a way I cannot say, refined and widespread as much as possible (may be as an "open letter" to the international public opinion?). With my compliment! Franco Soldani


I'll will post this on our blog. Nice work dz.

I was surprised that 9/11

I was surprised that 9/11 press for truth only had 2300 views.. also all time views was at 11 000 when it should have been much more than that. Google Video is a great asset, I just wish they didn't cheat with the numbers.

The first time...

9/11: Press For Truth was posted (by Ian C.), it got 150,000 views within a matter of days. Then one day, it was erased, and back down to "0". I was pissed.
