Who is Davin Coburn and why is he an "expert" on 9/11?
As I watched the so-called "experts" in the History Channel hit piece "9/11 Conspiracies: Fact or Fiction," it began to dawn on me as to what it takes to make some of the "experts" truly an expert in the field of 9/11 studies.
I decided to look into one of the "experts," Davin Coburn of Popular Mechanics, and I found out that his expertise on 9/11 came from writing high school sports stories at a newspaper in Pennsylvania a little more than three years ago.
I did a rudimentary search of Coburn's name on the Internet and found several enlightening articles attributed to a "Davin Coburn" at The Sentinel in Carlisle, Pa. including a pay increase for high school football officials,
a rec league basketball game
and even a fire at an Arby's restaurant on Route 11.
Last night I decided to call the sports department of The Sentinel to see if this was indeed the very same Davin Coburn who is featured in the 9/11 documentary and doesn't actually answer any questions.
I talked to a sports reporter and asked if he knew of a Davin Coburn that worked at the paper. He said "It's funny you mention (Davin's) name because I just saw him in a documentary on the History Channel the other night."
So there you have it. To be an "expert" on 9/11 just write a few sports stories for a local daily newspaper. What I would like to know is how this 28-year-old idiot went from working at a small daily newspaper to writing for the (supposedly) most prestigious science journal in publication.
Maybe someone else should take a look into his other "expert" background.
As an aside, the History Channel also ripped off some of my own personal footage I filmed at Ground Zero last Sept. 11 and included it at the end of the documentary. They never asked for my permission to use it and then proceeded to blur out my user name on my YouTube account.
