Change is Happening!

The efforts of the 9/11 truth community to get the attention of "official" media are having the desired effect. I know this because recently our local paper, the St. Louis Post Dispatch, published a series of letters to the editor (with associated comments in their on-line forums) that gave real voice to the questions frequently raised here.

They have published letters to the editor about 9/11 issues a time or two before, but this time they published a series of three related letters over the course of about a week where—in my opinion—the arguments for questioning 9/11 spoke much louder than the opposing view. This kind of quiet attention from a local editorial staff seems to clearly signal an awakening to the core 9/11 questions, particularly since the last word went to a fellow questioner of the official story of 9/11. Further, the on-line comments were overwhelmingly from people who were largely well informed about the holes in the government's theories of what happened on that day.

Following are links to the article that started the exchange and to the letters that followed:

The years of efforts by the activists who write and/or are reported on here are bringing the question of what really happened on 9/11 to the public's attention. Thank you! It's working. Keep it up!

A Response to the 'If 9/11 Conspiracies had any Merit the Mainstream Media Would Expose It' Excuse

What Else is the Mainstream Media Lying About? - OpEdNews.com

The other night I had an extensive conversation with one of my best friends. This man is highly intelligent and moral. He is a writer, a journalist and a concerned American citizen. During the course of our conversation he told me his criticisms of my latest op ed piece, Pulling the 9/11 Lynch Pin. His main complaint seemed to be my insistence that 9/11 is not at all what the government says it was and, quite frankly, if the 'conspiracy theory' had any merit whatsoever, the mainstream media would be exposing it. Bloggers, such as yours truly, can say whatever they want, but journalists will research a subject and expose the truth.

Fair enough. Even though the media is owned by huge corporations, there are honest, crackerjack journalists out there who will dig and fight in order to expose, the real story.

However, I would counter, editors kneel at the alter of a corporate boss. The US is tied for 53rd in the world for press freedom with Botswana, Croatia and Tonga. http://www.rsf.org/article.php3?id_article=19388

Rather than listing the hundreds of lies, omissions, distortions, 'coincidences' and physical impossibilities that make up the official narrative of the events of 9/11, facts that my good friend refuses to even look at, because he saw the planes hit the towers with his own eyes and knows what happened, I'd like to take a look at the mainstream media instead. Since a lie encompasses omissions and distortions, as well as the simple act of not telling the truth, I'm wondering what else the mainstream media is lying about to the American people.
