Alternative Media and Ahamadinejad's Speech. Total Silence! Total Censorship.

I have just perused some of the most popular "alternative" media sites this Saturday morning to see what is being written about Ahmadinejad's speech at the UN this week.
Seems like complete avoidance.
Censorship is a better word.
While the msm at least covered the story, the alternative media has avoided the story, hoping it would go away. They are, it seems, under strict guidelines to not mention 9/11 truth or any of the evidence that conflicts with the official story of 9/11.

I looked at Alternet, CommonDreams, Truthout, DemocracyNow, Counterpunch, antiwar.com.
I did see a small mention of the speech on DemocracyNow, as part of their news rundown. No details.
I didn't see anything on antiwar.com's listing of headlines around the world that normally would have had information about the speech.

I think this is a clear indication that our progressive and independent alternative media is completely controlled. By whom? Well, it seems by the big foundations that help fund these sites. If you go to the foundational support for any of these sites, you will find foundations that link back to the likes of the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation, Charles Steart Mott Foundation, McKnight Foundation, Joyce Foundation, and many others.

Michel Chossudovsky explains in his article at Global Research, "Manufacturing Dissent", that this funding is part of a plan by the elites to actually control the content and actions of the so called "people's movement", in that while allowing these groups to actively dissent against the globalization movement of the international powerful elites, they actively fund them so that limits can be placed where necessary. They realize that it is healthiest for a lot of antiglobalization activity to occur, but only up to a certain point, and it is better that they fund those groups that acknowledge their limits and ensure that no real change ever comes about. Certainly one of the limits is that 9/11 truth is not presented in any media outlets "on the take". The website for his article is http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=21110.

The Progressive and Alternative media sites that are supported by these foundations obviously want to continue their activism in issues such as antiwar, environmentalism, stopping torture, opposing restrictions on human rights, etc, and I guess they feel that to do so they need the funding from these huge foundations. They may feel that otherwise they could not possibly continue without the money flowing in. In their minds, they have made a compromise worth making. But in the end, their objectives are all thwarted, in that as long as the elites can lie whenever they want to so blatantly, as in 9/11, without the media investigating, there is not much that is ever going to be done in the issues that are so important to them. The elites will continue to pull out the stops whenever real change against them may be in the works. I'm sure they watch closely.

Clearly, we in the 9/11 truth movement need to, first of all, not support any of these alternative media outlets, and we should also do all we can to expose their censorship of the truth. While it may not help, calling or writing to them during their donation drives and explaining why why are adamant in not supporting them is something we can try. And, of course, supporting any of the media outlets that DO expose the lies of the 9/11 official story is something we should all do. And I think monitoring which media groups are supportive of the truth and which are censoring truth is helpful, and that is where 911blogger comes in. Let's keep posting what we see going on in the media. Right here.

I did find this at TRUNCATED TRUTHOUT:

Ahmadinejad's Remarks on 9-11 Steal Spotlight at U.N.

Friday 24 September 2010

by: Warren P. Strobel | McClatchy Newspapers | Report

United Nations — For all its flaws, the United Nations sometimes reflects the world as it's supposed to. This week it held up a pretty accurate mirror of a globe that's troubled by would-be Quran burners, violent radical Muslims and disputes over where to build houses of worship.

The role of provocateur at this year's annual U.N. General Assembly fell, unsurprisingly, to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who suggested Thursday that the U.S. government was behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, which killed about 3,000 people.

The news media dutifully reported Ahmadinejad's conspiracy theory as news, and President Barack Obama denounced his remarks as "hateful" and "offensive" in an interview Friday with BBC's Persian news service, which has a significant audience in Iran.

Obama's denunciation was seconded by Britain's deputy prime minister, usually mild-mannered U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and others, perhaps suggesting that Ahmadinejad's annual antics here are wearing thin.

The Iranian leader's comments, perhaps by design, diverted attention from a host of real issues on world leaders' plates, ranging from a possible new civil war in Sudan, fresh tensions in East Asia and Iran's own suspected nuclear weapons program.

Behind the furor, there were tentative signs of progress on the standoff over Iran's enrichment of uranium, which can be used to fuel nuclear arms.

At a news conference Friday, the Iranian leader said that Iran's negotiators might be willing to meet international counterparts next month to revive stalled talks. He also promised, as he has in the past, that Iran would halt enrichment if given uranium to fuel a civilian research reactor in Tehran.

U.S. officials reacted cautiously. more:

so truthout has decided that Ahmadinejad's comments....

...........were just a silly technique to deflect concern over some other more important issues.
Truthout, apparently, has no concern that there may be another theory about what happened on 9/11, or the fact that millions, maybe billions, believe the US is lying about it all.

Great alternative media.

Obvious control by powerful foundations that support it.

I would love to know just who pays to keep Truthout on the web.

EVERY COMMENT at TRUTHOUT is Pro TRUTH

Yes, and that is great.

Maybe they will get the message.

In a display of diplomatic theatrics at the United Nations, the U.S. delegation walked out on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech when he raised speculation that the Sept. 11 terror attacks were orchestrated by the United States to protect Israel.

He made the statement as he attacked the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and also spoke of threats by U.S. religious groups to burn the Quran, the Muslim holy book, calling that an act of "evil," the Associated Press writes. He held up a Quran, saying "the truth cannot be burned."

In his speech to the annual General Assembly, Ahmadinejad said it was mostly U.S. government officials who believed a terrorist group was behind the suicide hijacking attacks that brought down New York's World Trade Center and hit the Pentagon.

Another theory, he said, was "that some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy, and its grips on the Middle East, in order to save the Zionist regime."

"The majority of the American people as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree with this view," Ahmadinejad told the 192-nation assembly.

The U.S. and several European delegations left shortly after Ahmadinejad made the remarks.

The U.S. delegation issued this statement in response: "Rather than representing the aspirations and goodwill of the Iranian people, Mr. Ahmadinejad has yet again chosen to spout vile conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic slurs that are as abhorrent and delusional as they are predictable."

Like Amy Goodman on DemocracyNow................

just a rehash of what the msm presented.

What do we need an alternative media for? So they can censor 9/11 truth, and only copy/paste what the msm publishes?

Perhaps it is our turn

Even Boiling Frogs is silent on this, at least so far.

I guess it is time to start an alternative to the alternative news sites.

Here's a good alternative website:

Truthseeker

I just found out that the above blog that I wrote has appeared on the Truthseeker website.
Here is the link: http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/article.asp?ID=13497

It is obviously a website that isn't afraid of the truth. A lot of interesting stuff there, and one that we should support.

I truly appreciate all your effort pfgetty.

Good to see your writing spread around.
You keep at it. As will I.
