Bad publicity is good publicity or: How to make the best of hit pieces

I haven't looked at the South Park episode dealing with 9/11. However, this 911blogger website's traffic statistics seem to suggest that it served huuuuuuuuuugely to direct curious people to look up for "truther" sites. I wonder how many hits 911truth.org did get as a result (after all, one character was wearing a T-shirt with their address on it, and 911blogger.com did only reap the "side effect")?

Second, I've come across an interesting an interesting article at www.opednews.com ("Analyzing South Park's 9/11 Show"). It's really worth a read:

'One thing I've found over the last few years is that media will often write a "9/11 hit piece" and then weave within it many links and information that gets the reader curious about the fact that the official story doesn't really make sense, when you look at it. This harkens back to the old KGB run Soviet Union, where journalists would "hide" facts within stories, and the Soviet people were savvy enough to get the "real" message.

A few months after 9/11 a Canadian newspaper writer did just this, writing what looked like a 9/11 hit piece, but working major disturbing facts in it, and then giving my email address findtruth40@hotmail.com for those wanting more information. When I called him, he apologized for the hit piece quality, but said that's the only way he could get the facts to the public, past his editor. The result was amazing. I got hundreds of emails from angry Canadians who believed that 9/11 was an inside job, and who'd read past the Trojan horse hit piece aspect and saw the facts within the article.'
