FOX News Marginalizes Giuliani Critics And 9/11 Victims As “Campaign Crazies” And Democrat Kirsten Powers Helps

FOX puts its best (worst?) spin on Giuliani's WTC moment. The fact of the matter is, confronting "America's Mayor" with "America's Questions" is a winning tactic, and FOX can't handle the truth. The fact of the matter is, Giuliani's 9/11 campaign crutch is quite vulnerable, and confronting Giuliani with tough questions is a winner for 9/11 skeptics. So get your handycam and bust some moves. Have a follow-up question ready to roll, a good one might be, "Why didn't your administration ensure that the First Responders had the best radios that they could possibly have?" -r.

FOX News Marginalizes Giuliani Critics And 9/11 Victims As “Campaign Crazies” And Democrat Kirsten Powers Helps

Reported by Ellen - June 1, 2007

A group of New York City firefighters and family members of 9/11 victims, upset with the faulty radios and what they called a lack of coordination at Ground Zero, have been protesting at Rudy Giuliani’s fundraisers in an effort to challenge his media image as a 9/11 hero. But rather than air the allegations in a fair and balanced forum, FOX News marginalized the critics as “campaign crazies” and equated them with a man who said he would never vote for Romney because he’s a Mormon. Sadly, “Democratic strategist” Kirstin Powers declined the opportunity to advocate for the other side. With video.

The discussion on last night's (5/31/07) Hannity & Colmes opened with Sean Hannity playing a clip of Romney politely approaching a potential constituent. “I’m one person who will never vote for a Mormon,” the man told Romney and refused to shake his hand. That was followed by a clip of Giuliani telling an unknown but aggressive questioner, “The fact is that I never realized the towers would collapse.” Hannity followed that up by repeating an old falsehood, that Republican guest Michael Steele “(was) hit with Oreo cookies” during a 2002 gubernatorial debate.

Powers seemed to have spent all her prep time on her appearance and none on any substantive issues. She either didn't know or didn't care that Hannity had just misrepresented the Oreo cookie incident. Her main interest seemed to be in flirting prettily with Hannity. She looked absolutely gorgeous but seemed to have nothing to say other than “this kind of stuff happens all the time on campaigns… A good politician, a good campaigner knows how to react.” It never seemed to have occurred to her that here was an opportunity to point out the vulnerabilities of a top Republican presidential candidate or even mention that there are plenty of real 9/11 heroes who take issue with Giuliani’s actions and his heroic image.

It was Alan Colmes who brought out the fact that Steele was not pelted with cookies but, as Steele later admitted, “when I looked at my feet, someone had rolled Oreo cookies in my direction.”

Colmes continued to make all the points Powers should have. He asked Steele, “What’s wrong with asking someone like Rudy Giuliani questions… there are some questions about, for example, the decision to put the emergency bunker on the 27th floor of the World Trade Center…. Those are legitimate questions to ask a candidate.” ...


interesting quotes: "...and

interesting quotes:

"...and so a good politician, a campaigner, knows when that happens how to respond to that and it's not react, I mean you have to be prepared that someone 's gonna say something to you...

"..and if you can't handle it, you know,
you ai'nt gonna be able to fight terrorists if you can't stand up to these people...

(correct me if I mis understood the second quote, the audio is very poor)

Regarding Greg Palast....

It seems likely that Greg Palast panned the facts of 9/11 to protect his involvement in breaking the "caging" story now penetrating the MSM.

This is selfish but somewhat understandable given the level of his involvement in breaking the latter..

JFK movie

Just watched Stone's 'JFK' again, first time since 9/11 and it's a different movie. Has anyone from the truth movement tried to contact any of the actors that were in this movie: ie Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones, James Brolin, et all? Curious to know how they feel about '911 was an inside job' after knowing what happened to JFK, Bobbie and MLK.

Costner clearly knows all

Costner clearly knows all about the JFK killing and even went to speak with E. Howard Hunt a few years back to try and squeeze some answers out of him. it didnt work but if hes interested in that crime and cover-up surely he would be interested in 9/11 right? and Brolin plugged a 9/11 truth website on "The View" a few months back so he obviously gets it.

I'm about to barf. Only in America are poeple who have the time, focus, and dedication to participate in the presidential election beyond watching the 'debates' and casting a ballot....and they are crazies.

((END RANT))).....I'm preaching to the Choir here.

Can't Stop 9/11 Fever


I'm not a fan of the "radio's" question as a follow-up. The radio's point out incompetence, yes... but Rudy's crime is complicity. If I catch him with my handycam, I'm going to nail him on collapse foreknowledge and shipping steel away from a crime scene.

Good questions for Ghouliani are: What happened to WTC-7 & your

command center in there? Why did Silverstein say, "pull-it" and then we watched the building collapse. Isn't it suspicious that Silverstein then collect billions $$$ in insurance?

good questions git'er duunnn

the best question for Guiliani is "We all know that your were in charge of the city for 9/11 and that, under your guidance, the wreckage from the WTC complex was completely removed as quickly as possible before it could be thoroughly examined by investigators. You left law enforcement with almost no physical evidence upon which to base their investigations. How do you justify your criminal involvement in overseeing the single largest case of destruction of evidence in American history?"

Best way to go after the republicans that are trying to keep Ron Paul out of the debates: "There is nothing more un-American than bypassing the democratic process. By attempting to oust Paul from the debates and the race as a whole you are attempting to fix the elections just like they do in communist countries and dictatorships. Our great nation, the United States of America, is founded upon the principles of the democratic process - that every citizen has a vote so that crooked despots and corrupt tyrants cannot seize control of our government. Our government is of, by, and for the people, and we the people demand that our elections remain just and democratic."

Luke keeps on kicking arse!

I've seen that Rudy reaction clip now on several cable news channels- prompting obnoxiousness (from Hannity) and banalities (from Chris Matthews). That's some serious bang-for-buck- culture jamming at its finest! Go Luke!

Off topic...

Remember this?

The Lone Gunman (Pilot episode) premiered on Fox, March 4, 2001. Predicts the events of 9/11, except this one has the classic Hollywood happy ending.

Funny how Condi could never predict planes being used as weapons. These guys sure did.

haha, i have the whole

haha, i have the whole series(which lasted 1 season) on DVD. its actually pretty good.

Have we pasted the two clips together?

Rudy saying they were warned about the towers, and Rudy denying foreknowledge??

THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE BEFORE LUKE EVEN RELEASED IT!!!! It doesn't do us much good for people to just be hearing the denial clip on its own. (Or more likely just a portion of the denial clip...) Again, I'm seeing amateurish behavior here. Those two clips should already be inextricably edited together, and we should be pumping them out to every corner of the internet, local media, MSM. TOGETHER AS A UNIT. Local stations will show the contradiction, Fox and CNN might edit it out.

I'm sure am glad that Hannity and Colmes...

...don't work like this.

Steele said it’s legitimate but attacked the off-camera questioner, first by saying that it was “after-action questioning” and then complaining about “the accusatory nature or tone… If you come to the question presuming the answer, then it’s not a fair question because anything the candidate says, you’re not gonna accept.”

Steele is a opportunist. I

Steele is a opportunist. I was contracted to make bumper stickers for his campaign for US Senator here in MD. the copy for the signage/sticker "A Steele Democrat"

Yes he is a republican... Doublespeak at its finest.

This was before I "woke up"...

I refused to make do any further work for him and lost a client because of it (local Marketing company) after I did wake up. Oh well I'd rather have my dignity over neo-con cash.
