An Open Letter To Bill Moyers

Dear Mr. Moyers:

We note the wide publication of a speech you gave on January 27, 2011 titled "Is This a Private Fight or Can Anyone Get In It?" In it you described "truthers" (your designation) -- people seeking the truth about the attack of 9/11 -- as guilty of disinformation, of sophistry and of cherry-picking anomalies in order to perpetrate what you claim to be a "Big Lie." You also stated that the central claim of "truthers", that the Government has lied about the attacks, has not taken hold in the public mind.

Regarding public opinion, that a sizable proportion of people throughout the world believe there was federal involvement of some form in the attack has been mainstream news for years, and there is now a Wikipedia page devoted to global opinion polls about 9/11. As well, you know that the Commission was established only after more than a year of entreating by families of victims, that it was severely limited in both time and funding, that it was under the absolute control of a director with ties to the Administration, and that abundant information inconsistent with an official story was excluded.

What has become known as the "9/11Truth Movement" includes a great diversity of people, many with impeccable credentials and reputations, who have in common an understanding that the official governmental story of 9/11 is filled with obvious fabrications and who feel impelled to pursue the truth. The collective that you have painted with the "liar" brush includes us, many of our esteemed colleagues and a multitude of fine and prominent people the world over. We the undersigned have come together to state unequivocally that we have not cherry picked information or lied. We believe that by any reasonable standard we are owed a public apology.

Absolutely

Awesome

Excellent retort. The

Excellent retort. The mainstream media, by its stance of being apologists and appeasers regarding certain acts of mass murder and international terrorism, are the chief mechanism that is preventing the perpetrators of not just 9/11, but many other atrocities in recent times, from being brought before a judge and jury to face the justice they so deserve.

Here is Moyers' Speach
http://www.truth-out.org/bill-moyers-facts-still-matter67571

and an excerpt:
Disinformation is not unique to the right, of course. Like other journalists, I have been the object of malevolent assaults from the "9/11 truthers" for not reporting their airtight case proving that the Bush administration conspired to bring about the attacks on the World Trade Center. How did they discover this conspiracy? As the independent journalist Robert Parry has written, "the truthers" threw out all the evidence of al-Qaeda's involvement, from contemporaneous calls from hijack victims on the planes to confessions from al-Qaeda leaders both in and out of captivity that they had indeed done it. Then, recycling some of the right's sophistry techniques, such as using long lists of supposed evidence to overcome the lack of any real evidence, the "truthers" cherry-picked a few supposed "anomalies" to build an "inside-job" story line. Fortunately, this Big Lie never took hold in the public mind. These truthers on the left, if that is where GPS can find them on the political map, are outgunned, outmatched and outshouted by the media apparatus on the right that pounds the public like drone missiles loaded with conspiracy theories and disinformation and accompanied by armadas of outright lies.

it is hard to vote that up...

repugnant as it is.

PS from Brooklyn

Your move, Mr. Moyers. Your hitherto well-earned integrity is on the line here. After all, you are one of the few journalists to have shown the courage to report in detail on the shadow government operating within the United States. That such an entity indeed exists is a studied observation of US Senator Daniel K. Inouye, and an historical fact that you yourself have helped to document. It is also a reality that you now, in a grotesque and inexcusable maligning of fellow activists and intellectuals, strangely appear to elide.

The disinformation and cherry-picking are entirely your own, Mr. Moyers, to your present shame and disrepute. Kindly spare us the arrogant prognostications about a public mind you appear to have lost meaningful contact with, and return to your duty of informing that mind with an intelligent analysis of the facts. As you are clearly in need of brushing up on the latter, I'm sure the eminent signatories above would be willing to lend you a hand.

Awaiting your reply to them,

Tom Breidenbach

WELL SAID TOM!

Thanks

They - the ruling class- obviously

jerked his chain. It´s OK though !! - for those who still hold out a glimmer of hope in the liberals in the media this should put the final nail in the coffin - and so what is gained is precisely clarity, finality, and indeed wisdom. The owl of Minerva flies only at night - Hegel. Good response. Now we move on - towards a complete and revolutionary overhaul of a terminally ill and bankrupt (anti) social system.

Fantastic...

And Moyers has been made aware of this letter?
