Excerpt from (Google-translated) article about ratings for German TV channel VOX (the most successful private television station of the so-called "second generation", according to Wikipedia) on Thursday, September 11, 2008, when it aired "9/11 Mysteries":
"With market shares of up to 20 percent in young audiences was the Thursday evening for Vox on all expectations. Particularly successful was the documentary "9 / 11 Mysteries - The destruction of the World Trade Center". From 22.50 clock almost brought the two broadcast a record-breaking audiences market share of 19.1 percent."
Original in German:
There is a new disinfo "documentary" titled "Screw 911 Mysteries" which you may wish to look into. The author goes on about one sentence in "9/11 Mysteries" that "110 storeys hurled Earthward, pulverizing into dust" and he attacks the straw man argument that steel was pulverized in the WTC collapse, which clearly "9/11 Mysteries" does not argue. I don't know if it's worth paying attention to, it's clearly crap. But so far the discussion forum has not provided a cogent rebuttal (which would require actually watching the whole video) and the author is still trumpeting his doc as a "debunking." Somehow the "debunking" movement still powers itself by demanding 9/11 truthers bear the burden of proof when the official theory does not prove its case. But the public is still very confused about this issue. So, how should we respond to stuff like this? Point-by-point refutation which barely anybody will read?
Last night I stumbled upon the recently re-activated Google page for the film. The previous view count (2,475,901 last night) also shows on the page!! Hooray!!
Last night I emailed Sofia, the creator of the film, and she responded this morning--she's totally elated!! Spread the word about this excellent film: it's a door opener to the TRUTH.
27/03/07 Mercury Unveils Four New Titles for MIP TV and MIP DOC.
International distributor MercuryMedia will be showcasing four new documentary titles at MIP TV and Mip Doc in April 2007.
9/11 MYSTERIES presents an argument suggesting that the events of 9/11 were part of a deliberate hoax, designed to provide the pretext for the perpetual War on Terror. With compelling evidence pointing towards the wholesale demolition of the towers, In the Wake Productions’ ‘9/11 Mysteries’ draws some very disturbing conclusions about the real events of that tragic day.
ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE, 105 minutes - Sag Harbour Basement, examines the one subject the American media doesn’t discuss – itself. The film asserts that mainstream American media are no longer the voice of American freedom. Instead, they're part of a repressive political power structure sharing disturbing parallels with Orwell’s dystopian vision. This is a disturbing expose of the manipulation of the media by America's power brokers.

I must add a correction to this post. I was toying with the regional settings on Google, and the ranking I saw was not for the universal Top 100 or the United States Top 100. Suffice to say, in places such as Australia and Canada, 9/11 Mysteries has cracked the Top 100. But please help it out anyway, by clicking on the link.
Well, well, well. Thank you, James Brolin.
It appears the excellent 9/11 Truth video "9/11+Mysteries" has skyrocketed to #58 on Google Video's Top 100, courtesy of Brolin's plug for 911weknow.com.

9/11 film focuses on conspiracy theories
By Mike Branom, Tribune
Phil Manning’s heart aches for his brother, killed in the 9/11 attacks. But it hurt more to know Scottsdale Community College screened a documentary stating Terence Manning and hundreds of others weren’t victims of terrorism but of a shadowy conspiracy.
About 60 people came to the college on Monday night to see “911 Mysteries — Part 1: Demolitions.” The movie theorizes the World Trade Center towers were knocked down by controlled explosions, and not by the fires created by the impact of two jetliners.
However, writer/director Sofia Shafquat does not offer an opinion on who, or what, would commit such a heinous act.
The 43-year-old Manning attended, somewhat shocked that this issue could even need discussion, let alone at his hometown community college. “This probably gets under my skin more than anything post-9/11,” said Manning, a member of the Arizona 9-11 Memorial Commission.
Focal Point, the college’s film club, sponsored the film. The decision to host the film came a month ago, when a student learned Shafquat was coming to the Valley. “Regardless whether you believe it or not, it’s still an important film,” club president Andre Trinidad said.
The showing of “911 Mysteries” provoked a small outcry on campus and beyond.
Political science professor Nick Damask sent an e-mail to the entire Maricopa County Community College District stating: “I will not be attending the film presentation for the same reasons I would not attend a presentation on alchemy, flat-earth theory, or Holocaust denial — it’s simply too stupid and irrational.” Also voicing displeasure with the screening, yet still attending, was district governing board member Jerry D. Walker.
Later, Shafquat said she was drawn to the issue by a friend who tried to debunk such conspiracy theories only to find merit in their arguments.
“The more you go into the territory of 9/11 and the more you follow this angle or that angle and look for real facts and real science, the more it adds up,” Shafquat said.
“The more you follow the official story of 9/11, the more it falls apart.”

In the five years since 9/11, a growing number of Americans have become convinced that the World Trade Center was brought down by a deliberate act of demolition carried out by the U.S. government. The so-called 9/11 conspiracy movement is growing larger by the day, aided and abetted by the work of filmmakers like Sofia, a San Diego-area director who prefers we only use her first name. Sofia’s film, 9/11 Mysteries, which screens in Newport Beach on Thursday, Nov. 2, is the first installment of a planned four-part series of feature-length documentaries alleging that the 9/11 attacks were an elaborate ruse designed to bolster public support for a prefabricated war on terror.
This movie focuses not on the hijackings but on the collapse of the Twin Towers, showing relentless footage of the falling buildings side by side with archival shots of actual demolitions. It’s a technique highly reminiscent of Oliver Stone’s incessant use of the Zapruder film in JFK: “Back and to the right, back and to the right . . . ” and while intriguing, fails to offer much in the way of actual proof. JFK might have been completely wrong but it did force the government to release thousands of classified files that have helped shed light on some of the darker chapters of U.S. history.
In that vein, whatever really happened on 9/11—and after two viewings we’re still convinced it was the work of highly motivated, highly evil hijackers—9/11 Mysteries is worth viewing if only to challenge one’s own assumptions and, hopefully, lead to greater discussion of the tragedy and more accountability from our government. I recently spoke with Sofia about her film and why so many people, including herself, are willing to give bin Laden a pass for toppling the towers.
How did you get the idea to make a documentary about 9/11?
It all began with a pilot I knew who flew Boeings for 30 years. He was watching TV that day and he said you have no idea how hard it is to fly a plane into the buildings like that; the G-forces are too high, and the plane’s wingspan is 175 feet and the building itself is only 200 feet wide. When we drive a car into a telephone pole, that is easy—but planes can’t be maneuvered as easily. The guidance for a plane has to be done slowly. The way the planes veered into the Pentagon is under question. The suggestion here is that the planes were controlled by remote and remote controlled aviation has been available for 30 years. He said there is no way he could have done that with 30 years’ experience flying planes.
