I Didn't Say That - Jeff Rense Did!

The good news: Rense published my piece on questioning Amy Goodman: http://www.rense.com/general78/gatekeep.htm

The bad news: They published it with a headline and introduction I didn't write, but made it look as if those were my words. Check it out:

Zionist Gatekeeper Amy
Goodman Questioned On WTC-7
By Kevin Barrett

She has always been a mole.

If you bother to write her (FOR NOTHING), include this image below. Bottom, right of Center, zio-mole Goodman. Of her fans, how many are also actually zio-moles?

I responded with an email to Rense:

Hi Jeff,
I your posting my Amy Goodman video.
But I would appreciate it if you would change the layout of the headline and introduction to make it clear that I did not write that part. You are welcome to call Amy a Zionist gatekeeper and a mole, but I didn't and wouldn't call her that. Just removing the "by Kevin Barrett" under the headline would fix the problem.

rense.com is a wasteland

It's a joke. So is Rense himself. I quit reading that crap website years ago.

But it is a good excercise reading all the uncensored *news* to sharpen the saw in being able to think critically as to what may be true and what is bogus.

Rense's Editorial

Regular Rense visitors will recognize the introductions as the standard format when he comments on an article. However, others won't know it was not you.

Goodman at WTC7 demolition ..

"You might be interested to know that her program, Democracy Now!, is funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. Coincidence?
Another funding source to be concerned about is The Ford Foundation, a cover operation for CIA sponsored projects-including disinformation."

"Amy began the question period by announcing that nobody would be tasered for asking questions.

Kevin: "Well, if anyone were going to be tasered here, it probably would be me. Hi Amy. Kevin Barrett here. I appreciate your great work on so many issues, and I agree with your quote that 'our job as journalists is to go to where the silence is.' Now there's a very popular youtube video that's especially popular among the 100 million Americans who know that 9/11 was an inside job, according to a New York Times poll. It shows you present at the controlled demolition of Building 7."

Amy: "I did not demolish Building 7."

Kevin: "Well, okay, I'm glad we got that straight. My question would be, if your job is to go to where the silence is, Building 7 is a great place of silence, as I'm sure you know. It's a 47 story building that came down into its own footprint for no apparent reason at about 5:30 p.m. on September 11th. A countdown to the demolition of Building 7 went out on New York police radio. I was in New York for the sixth anniversary, and every cop I talked to knows that that went out on police radio. The BBC reported that Building 7 had collapsed twenty minutes before it happened, with Building 7 standing in the background behind the reporter. And we have eyewitnesses--I can give you their contact information--who were inside Building 7 at [around] 9 o'clock in the morning who witnessed massive explosions that killed large numbers of people and devastated the lobby. There were pre-demolition explosions. You're right there in New York, you're right next to Ground Zero, and you talked about doing 'ground zero reporting' -- so when are you going to get around to doing some 'ground zero reporting' on Building 7?"

Heckler: "Why don't you shut up, this is not your night."

Amy: "Overall, I would say that everything that happened on September 11th should be fully investigated. Of course I don't think that the 9/11 Commission was an adequate investigation. And I agree that there are a lot of questions that have to be answered."

So... Rense is wrong on this one ?

An odd complaint from someone posting Rense material ...

...at their blog uncritically. Now you're Rense's bitch, as well as Haupt's?

Sad, luv.

Rense? I Don't Know What You're Talking About

Got a particular post in mind?

The cartoon, luv--it's from the Rense wankers.

You know, the people your lot like to say 911Truthers are part of by "association"--by which you mean linking to it as a reference without knowing Rense's history. Which, admittedly, is a bit sloppy, but it's MILES away from supporting their site, or being a anti-semite/Holocaust denier, or whatever rubbish you're planning to re-spin. Now, Rense attacking us--that must really throw a "monkey wrench into the works", I believe was the phrase Fetzer used. Going to be hard keeping that Rense =911Truth connection at your blog, sunbeam.

So, who sent you--ahem, I mean "told" you-- about the cartoon? And in such a timely manner, luv?

--in such a timely fashion. Can't see it in your post--you heard about the cartoon how again?

>>You are welcome to call Amy a Zionist gatekeeper and a mole, but I didn't and wouldn't call her that.

No, but you do say that the ghosts of all the dead Iraqis will "haunt her soul forever" and that she is a " purveyor of blood libel" and has "done more to promote today's anti-Muslim genocide than any other media figure."

Sure, these aren't the same as naming her as an 'agent' or calling her 'a Zionist,' but probably not helpful to the cause of exposing 9/11 truth to treat her disrespectfully in this way, not to mention common decency in how we treat people who are not on board, for reasons we do not know. I expect such statements have the opposite effect - sealing her off from ever considering it.

Amy does more to expose 99% of the important issues in the world than almost anyone else in the media, but she has her limits on 9/11 and she's made herself clear on that. Leave her alone. Focus elsewhere. Take down statements saying ghosts will haunt her. There are many people located at the scene of the attacks who have had the most difficulty in addressing the possibility that it was an inside job. While it is frustrating that she isn't on board, we need to treat her with basic respect and common decency if we want to respect ourselves as a movement.

"The betrayal of trust, for me, is so immense, that I want to see Amy Goodman in the docket for war crimes alongside the Goebbels crew from Fox and the ownership of all mainstream US media and the "left gatekeepers" of the so-called alternative media. Of all of these purveyors of blood libel, I think Amy may be the worst--because she is the one idealistic skeptics trust the most. Through her complicit silence, Amy has done more to promote today's anti-Muslim genocide than any other media figure. The ghosts of 600,000 dead Iraqis will haunt her soul forever."

Not respectful. I urge you to remove this paragraph.

This Barrett stuff is pretty

This Barrett stuff is pretty tame when you consider that the neocons committed mass murder, and the MSM blasts the Truth movement on a far greater scale.

When you are a media figure like Amy Goodman, it your job to have some thick skin and take a few shots.

I'm sure she will survive some internet banter that she probably hasn't even heard of.

PS - the democrats and republicans have been ripping each other on NATIONAL TV (not just blogs) for decades, yet they still work together on budgets, legislation, covering up 9/11, etc.

So you are mistaken to think that Amy Goodman will not work with 9/11 Truth in the future if our poll numbers keep going up.

You are in some serious need of a college course on media relations. That is a pitty, because your website, 911research.com, is by far the best site for analysing the facts of 9/11. In fact, I have learned more about 9/11 from 911research than from any other source. 911research is the best at weighing all the evidence on each particular 9/11 factual issue.

Amy Goodman is a steam

Amy Goodman is a steam valve, she "exposes" issues that wont bring about any real change. she is one step above partisan shills on cable news networks. some would say she is more damaging to the cause of truth because unlike cable news hacks she pretends that she wants to go wherever the story leads her and has a certain credibility they dont. unless that story pisses off the people who make her show possible. we should never leave Amy Goodman alone, that would be ridiculous. this issue of course isnt as easy as "with us or against us" but i can assure that Amy Goodman is more concerned with her own career than she is with pushing the whole truth. she may not be against us but she certaintly isnt with us. if Amy Goodman was for real she would have done better than having the Loose Change kids in a debate with PM shills. thats a no-win situation, no disrespect to the LC crew, but Amy, just like the rest of the corporate media likes to pretend that we only have a couple of 24 year old kids pushing 9/11 truth(im a 24 year old, i obviously mean no disrespect but understand the point of framing it like this). she knows better, yet she still ignored the Kevin Ryan's and Paul Craig Roberts etc. in favor of a fake debate. that should tell you something about Goodman. anyone telling us to "leave her alone" is dead wrong. we expect cable news hacks to ignore the facts but someone like Goodman should be called out at ever turn for doing that. she wants to pretend like shes a hard hitting journalist in pursuit of all of the facts? then im going to treat her like one and hold her up to that standard. the people who can be reached expect cable news hacks to lie and expect talking heads to leave out some of the most important facts and stay away from "dangerous" stories like 9/11. sadly, many people who can be reached and are otherwise intelligent and open minded are influenced by and fully respect Amy Goodman and "goddamnit, if she doesnt see a "conspracy" there is none". Chomsky has the same effect. these people must be exposed just like the mainstream corporate media is. because again, the people that can be reached already know our MSM is useless but are still swayed by a Goodman or a Chomsky. letting them off the hook is the last thing we should be doing.
