Italian TV validates 9/11 Truth Movement call for new inquiry

Italian Truthers were shocked when a popular TV program devoted a full hour presenting the claims from the 9/11 Truth Movement while implicitly validating their call for a new, independent investigation.

On the night of August 26, 2011, popular host and television journalist Giovanni Minoli launched the first of a three-hour series commemorating the tenth anniversary of 9/11. Broadcast on RAI-2, the second public television channel, Minoli’s show used extended segments from “Loose Change” -- dubbed in Italian -- to present the audience with the most updated criticism leveled against the official version by the 9/11 Truth Movement.

Twice before had Italian television broadcast similar films from the 9/11 Truth Movement. In June, 2006, “Inganno Globale” (Global Deception) by Massimo Mazzucco was aired on Berlusconi’s Channel 5, serving as a platform for the ensuing debate on 9/11 which occupied our mainstream media for many months to come. In September of the same year RAI-3, the third public channel, aired Jimmy Walter’s “Confronting the evidence,” adding fuel to the fire.

In both cases, however, the hosts had kept their distance from the films’ contents, presenting them in an “objective manner,” neither endorsing nor criticizing them. (Even then, they took some serious heat from conservative commentators for having simply allowed such “nonsense” to emerge at mainstream level. But they eventually survived – and prospered, in fact - as their ratings had clearly gone up in the meantime).

In the most recent case instead Giovanni Minoli parsed the entire show with personal comments that underlined the absurdity of the official version, implicitly validating our calls for a new investigation. I have excerpted and collated his comments in the attached video for everyone to verify.

As far as I know, Giovanni Minoli has taken no heat whatsoever from political commentators...

... on either side of the aisle (except of course for some extremely irritated – and highly hilarious – letters from Italian debunker Paolo Attivissimo and his fans).

I believe this episode represents a very important turn of events in the dynamics of mainstream media worldwide, as it clearly shows that we have now gathered enough credibility to be able to present our claims with full legitimacy and respect. Recently Geraldo Rivera showed signs of being headed in the same direction in the US as well.

We still have a long way to go, and major obstacles will need to be overcome before we achieve similar results in the US. But the “higher logic” governing the media is the same all over the world, and it has much less to do with sheer politics than it has to do with economics (i.e., ratings). In other words, things can be brought to a point where they might “need” our content as much as we would need them to air it.

Let’s keep up the good work.

Welcome to 911blogger Massimo!

I am very appreciative of your work.

Wow! No kidding Joe... Welcome Massimo!!

We love your work.
Thanks for what you do!

Sure, but . . .

Even though it's nice to see the topic get coverage, it's too bad that his site mixes UFOs, pot history and alternative cancer treatments with 9/11. That's never a good sign.

And he mainly seems to support "no Boeing" at the Pentagon, apparently basing his critique on Loose Change.

I understand your concerns, but I have never “mixed” thing as you say. In my life I have studied all major conspiracies in recent history– including the JFK assassination - and I have covered each of them in an analitical manner (fully documented, that is, and strictly limited to facts only), presenting the results in separate documentaries.

I am a filmmaker after all.

And yes, of course the 9/11 debunkers have tried to use this “variety” of issues to discredit me, but so far they have not found a single fact presented in my films that could be disputed.

It has actually backfired, most of the times.



Well-done, Massimo.

a seeker of TRUTH in the broadest sense,

like me.
