Alternative Media Censorship: Sponsored by CIA's Ford Foundation, and others

Here is some information that may be helpful in figuring out just why the popular alternative media sites have censored 9/11 truth information.  I have no proof, no evidence, but I think this should be considered as a possible reason for the blockout of the important and scholarly research that many in the 9/11 truth movement have presented.

ALTERNATIVE MEDIA CENSORSHIP:
SPONSORED BY CIA's FORD FOUNDATION?

by bob feldman

The mass-circulation weekly TEMPO accused Ford of having once played, at the urging of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, a covert role in Indonesian political affairs by consciously supporting the work of individuals who were deemed to be sympathetic to the anti-communist aims of American foreign policy.

Public radio in Cleveland censors 911 truth caller

Monday Nov 16, 2009, WCPN-FM Cleveland, OH, NPR station, 9-10am show "The Sound of Ideas" censored my (poor public speaking ability) call challenging their discussion of 'fair trial for 911 defendants.' Call begins at 19:36. MP3: http://audio2.ideastream.org/wcpn/2009/11/1116soi.mp3

Terry Gross and Chip Berlet

On June 18, 2009, Fresh Air's Terry Gross interviewed Chip Berlet about his new book: "Toxic to Democracy: Conspiracy Theories, Demonization, and Scapegoating". She was really softball with him, not challenging anything. Here's what I wrote to Terry/NPR:

Today's (June 18, 2009) Chip Berlet interview left much to be desired. Terry, I expected better from you, great interviewer that you are.

Mr. Berlet smears--rather than answers--the 9/11 truth movement with the claim that identifying the perpetrators of the September 11 disaster will, according to the truthers, solve all the problems of American society.

You should have called on him to clearly state who said or made that claim. Clearly Mr. Berlet doesn't want to answer some of the serious questions being raised by serious scientists, academics and politicians. So he resorts to straw man tactics to dismiss them. Again, you should have called him on it.

Better yet, why don't you invite Dr. David Ray Griffin, professor emeritus, to discuss his new book "Osama Bin Laden: Dead or Alive?", or one of his other books such as "Debunking 9/11 Debunking".

Hitchens, Raimondo debate "Al-Qaeda"

Program from Al-Jazeera entitled "Al-Qaeda at 20" sees Christopher Hitchens, Justin Raimondo from anti-war.com and Nazar Janabi from the Washington Institute debate the nature and development of "Al-Qaeda".

Raimondo argues "blowback" and mentions early CIA funding but is hamstrung by his refusal to explore present-day intelligence concerning "Al-Qaeda" and 911. This allows Hitchens to move in for the kill.

Gatekeeper Cockburn (CounterPunch) is at it again

MEDUSA, INDEED
Crimes of the State Blog

"Conspiracism is raising its Medusa’s head again, her lethal visage wreathed with hissing absurdities, immobilizing judgement, melting intellect to pumice." --Alexander Cockburn (ignoring all evidence that is contrary to his irrational biases)

Blather at new heights of cognitive dissonance over at CounterPunch this weekend. Cockburn uses the term "conspiracism", as if that were a real thing, to mock any and all comers, even in a piece about the minutiae of some Wall Street fraud (Bernie Madoff).

But how can he get away with this childish mocking about the JFK assassination, without having to address even one piece of evidence at all?

Here is the entirety of what Cockburn says about "conspiracism" and the JFK assassination in that piece:

Idea in Eighth place at Change.org

I was just notified by change.org that my idea was in eighth place in its category. This is the same site that has censored ideas mentioning 9-11, yet this idea has survived for weeks. If it hits the top three in the category, it gets forwarded to Obama, and perhaps more importantly, the more votes it gets the more visibility it earns on the site.

Why not look it over and see whether it's worth a collective effort to bump it into third place. Here's how it reads:

End Censorship of War on Terror
Ever since the "War on Terror" began, there's been massive censorship about the facts surrounding it both within the corporate media, the progressive media, and internet news sites and blogs. The Obama administration should announce a policy of increased transparency surrounding the War on Terror, and the media should take that as a cue to stop censoring their content.

And here's the text of the email I received:

We wanted to let you know that there are only 2 weeks left in the first round of the "Ideas for Change in America" competition, and your idea is in 8th place in the Civic Engagement category.

Et Tu Lindorff?

Facts to the contrary, there just are no conspiracies

David Lindorff has finally stuck his foot in his mouth, over at Commondreams.org, a notorious anti-truth gatekeeping site. I suppose we should all just abandon even the hope for justice, truth and reconciliation and take orders from the establishment Democrats?

Lindorff mixes irrational hyperbole with some revisionist whitewashing, all in an effort to put those pesky "conspiracy theories" behind us -- in the service of "the left." This tactic was employed previously by Alexander Cockburn among others, and is quite simply shameful.

Huffington Post Confirms Censorship of 9/11 Truth

Arianna Huffington admitted in an interview with Politico:

“There are certain obvious things we have, certain specific things,” says Huffington. “Conspiracy theories — we don’t allow conspiracy theories. If you thought Sept. 11 was caused by the Bush administration, your comment is not going to appear unless it is a mistake.”

Can you spell g-a-t-e-k-e-e-p-e-r?

Rebuttal of Noam Chomsky's 9/11 Comments

The Corbett Report has just released a two-part documentary as a rebuttal to Chomsky's infamous 9/11 comments. These videos seek to expose the nonsensical and contradictory arguments Chomsky makes in trying to discredit 9/11 Truth. The documentary is intended to be an activist tool for spreading 9/11 Truth to academics, leftists and Chomskyites. If you think it is well-presented, please help get the word out by sending the link to people you think it might wake up.

Conspiracy is an Absolute Fact

Crimes of the State

I hear a lot of nonsense on the Internet -- much disinformation, [1] plain old vanilla misinformation, and grotesque ignorance up the wazoo.

Ignorance of specific facts and incidents is excusable, but an entirely fraudulent view of modern history?

You can't quite be sure if your fellow travellers have any inkling of their own nation's history, of their own government's substantiated, well-documented, and even admitted-to series of wrongdoings -- crimes, conspiracies.

Thus, you inevitably run into the cult of wild-eyed hyper-emotional flag-wavers who bring along their own lexicon of rude, arrogant and sometimes vulgar slurs. I'm referring to the "conspiradroid," "whack job," "nutcase," "moonbat," variety.

Why do these people seek solace in ignorance? I can understand that the alternative is scary, even terrifying. But hiding your head under the pillow does not make reality just disappear. Sorry, children.

Defending the Indefensible: Noam Chomsky's 9/11 Spin

Defending the Indefensible: Noam Chomsky's 9/11 Spin

Crimes of the State

Noam Chomsky's 2006 "analysis" of US government 9/11 complicity is being promoted by Alternet.org as if it was news. That's because Chomsky basically sides with the editors there and their dismissive attitudes toward looking at the evidence.

In this battle of ideas, it warms my heart that Alternet's boards are swamped with controversy the minute they try to push this garbage onto the unsuspecting.

I remain a bit dazed though that hard core "leftists" accept Chomsky's thin dismissal, and ignore the most important admission Chomsky has made:

"I mean even if it [US GOVERNMENT COMPLICITY IN THE 9/11 ATTACKS] were true, which is extremely unlikely, who cares? I mean it doesn't have any significance." -Noam Chomsky

Corporate Disobedience: A Shrill Hysteria in the Fascist Press

Crimes of the State Blog
http://crimesofthestate.blogspot.com/

It's not civil disobedience, but corporate disobedience -- upsetting the corporate control paradigm -- that just plain flips out the media oligarchs and their loyal proxies.

"It's not a debate. It's a debate between us. You're in the audience. Audience comes from the Latin, 'to listen'."
--Bill Maher, (confronted by WeAreChange LA regarding his 9/11 censorship

The most powerful weapon the corporate state has is editorial control. The information clampdown is total, on certain topics. No "debate" is allowed, and opposition voices are not permitted to appear despite the validity of their case, or the amount and quality of evidence they can provide. Opposition is routinely written out of history, and it is demonized when it refuses to remain silent.

Comment Letter On BBC Director Generals Blog - Demanding The BBC Investigate 9/11 As Part Of Its Drive For Truth

I wrote this to Mark Thompson, Director General of the BBC after he claimed that all the trust issues of the BBC have been resolved. You can see his letter and my response (no 17) at http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/theeditors/2007/09/trust_and_values.html.

Please 9/11 Bloggers - dont write comments to me, add your voice to this blog, using the link above and demand the BBC Investigates 9/11. With continued pressure, the growing weight of evidence, and the new film Loose Change Final Cut, which I promise you will prove the official story of 9/11 is false, we will win this battle for democracy.

Mark Thompson knows sooner or later he will have to investigate 9/11. He is under tremendous pressure to resist us, but we have to show we are as strong and as wily as those that would seek to silence us.

I am confident that behind the scenes the Berlin wall that is seperating those who peddle falsehoods and those that know the truth will soon come crashing down....with your help.....that wall will crumble. Thank you.

Mr Thompson,

"Skeptics" or Dupes? Skeptic Magazine Not So Skeptical on 9/11 Lies

Crimes of the State

Skeptic Magazine has come out with a half-assed response to the 9/11 Truth Movement. They cite Popular Mechanics' theories about the attacks, and not much else in their 9/11 Conspiracy Theories, the 9/11 Truth Movement in Perspective.

Someone should have told them that Professor David Ray Griffin has demolished the Popular Mechanics diatribe in his Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory.

Let's forego all of that -- pretend it never happened -- and get to the accusations of the article.
