Amy Goodman, "Democracy Now!", Dr. William F. Pepper and the NYC ballot initiative.
At the end of Ms. Goodman's recent appearance at Modern Times Bookstore in San Francisco a group of us approached her to get her on the record regarding the need for a new investigation. After waiting patiently for her to finish signing everyone's book, cosmos asked her directly if she thought we needed a new investigation (yes, there is video) and she replied that she thought everything about 9/11 needs to be investigated (cosmos had led with a question about WTC 7).
I asked her if she was familiar with Dr. William Pepper and his new book, she lit up and said she was very interested in his book. I suggested to her that she have him on the show and that she also endorse the NYC 9/11 ballot initiative. She then hurried away with one of her handlers without further comment.
I think one thing we could do, as part of a formal Week of Truth or just informally and beginning immediately, would be to contact Ms. Goodman and Democracy Now! and ask her to have Dr. William Pepper on her show to talk about his book and the NYC ballot initiative.
I sense that she knows she has lost credibility with many of her viewers over 9/11, but is not willing to do more than call for new investigations at this point. Her own limited hangout, so to speak.
Thus, by encouraging her to have Dr. William Pepper on the show and giving him a chance to promote the NYC ballot initiative she can save face and still maintain a reasonable distance from an issue she clearly doesn't want to touch yet.
She is in LA right now, so maybe some of WAC LA can follow up on this today and tomorrow.
Everyone else can use the Democracy Now! contact page:
Be brief, to the point and polite.
We need to make the most of every opportunity, brothers and sisters, and this is too good to pass up (no matter what we may think of Ms. Goodman).
The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.
