From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia : Yellow journalism, or the yellow press, is a type of journalism that presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines to sell more newspapers. Techniques may include exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering, or sensationalism. By extension, the term yellow journalism is used today as a pejorative to decry any journalism that treats news in an unprofessional or unethical fashion.

An activist and 9/11 Truther since 2007,
COMMENT POSTED ON LINE EDMONTON JOURNAL - January 17, 2013
It saddens me but does not surprise me as one long time Edmonton 9/11 truth activist, that a few clown radio personalities who claim to be 9/11 truthers will get their due in the Edmonton Journal ( mostly from the Austin Texas area ). These pundits chronically spread bizarre, outlandish conspiracy theories that's completely unrelated to 9/11, such as chem trails, poison in the tap water, world depopulating flu shots, fema camps and now Newtown school massacre hoaxes. These ad driven, alternative media mouth pieces don't represent the 9/11 truth movement as Kay insists, but only embarrass themselves. Jonathon Kay managing editor of the National Post and author of "Among The Truthers" can't be selling too many of his books either since Kay doesn't attempt to debunk any of the evidence of controlled demolition of the 3 towers including WTC7 .

During the question and answer period, columnist, Jonathan Kay, asks a question to professors Graeme MacQueen and Anthony Hall, as to why more mainstream journalists don't cover building 7. Professor Hall uses the opportunity to expose one example of Kay's yellow journalism and under researched defamation having ruined the career of one renowned Canadian journalist. supporting it being seen as "career suicide" to risk covering Building 7 in mainstream media.

A JOURNEY WITH JONATHAN
A Review of the Book, “Among the Truthers,” Written by Jonathan Kay
By: Jonathan H. Cole, P.E.
|I should have known from the cartoons
on the cover what Jonathan Kay's book,
"Among the Truthers," would be like.
But that old saying about not judging a
book by its cover trumped my first
impression. I recalled similar cartoons
like the astronaut, flying saucers and
helicopters on my pajamas, worn as a
toddler. The book’s subtitle, "A Journey
through Americas Growing Conspiracist
Underground," should have been my
second clue as to its contents.

Joshua Blakeney responds to Jonathan Kay's new book " Among The Truthers" on the "Unbought and Unbossed" radio show with host Raymond Geisler of CHLY-101.7 FM Nanaimo Canada. Joshua pieces together a trail of deceptive media propaganda led by The National Post of Canada and it's managing editor Jonathan Kay. Kay and the Post for years have attempted to demonize and scare away anyone who dares question the official 9/11 events sometimes comparing 911 truthers as cranks and anti Semitics.

On the evening of Saturday, June 26, 2010, Jonathan Kay headed out on his bike into the streets of Toronto to see what was up with the G20. What he saw, he wrote early the next morning in the National Post, convinced him of “”the extraordinary professionalism of the police patrolling Toronto this week.” The city was intact: tourists thronged Yonge Street, a band played on the corner. He toodled west along Queen, where he found a line of police staring down protestors. But: “There wasn’t any violence — at least none that I saw.”
Er, not so much.
We know now, of course, that the police were engaged in widespread brutality and violations of civil liberties all over Toronto that day. But Jonathan Kay didn’t see any of it and, so, of course, the police acted with “extraordinary professionalism.” Or perhaps he would argue that a little head-bashing and snatch-and-grabbery is not really violence, as in, you know, violence, and the police and state agree with him, and so that is that.
We don’t really know what Kay was thinking in the wake of the G20, as he didn’t blog much about it after that, except to call Toronto a “city of wimps.”
And so we come to Mr. Kay’s latest item of “reporting,” a book titled Among the Truthers: A Journey into the Growing Conspiracist Underground of 9/11 Truthers, Birthers, Armageddonites, Vaccine Hysterics, Hollywood Know-Nothings and Internet Addicts.
By Sonny Bunch - Book Review - "Among The Truthers" By Jonathan Kay
The most disheartening aspect of the 2012 election cycle (so far) has been Donald Trump's effort to press the "birther" argument, claiming that President Barack Obama may not have been born in Hawaii in 1961 but somewhere else—Kenya, perhaps. A survey in February recorded that 51% of GOP primary voters believed Mr. Obama to be a non-native son. In a victory for common sense, support for the position plummeted with the recent release of Mr. Obama's long-form birth certificate.
Liberals should avoid crowing too loudly, though, since they have their own share of nutters. In 2007, pollster John Zogby asked Democratic voters about the terrorist attacks of 9/11; 42% of respondents said that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney either allowed the attacks to happen or deliberately caused the attacks to happen, presumably for political gain or to reap a financial windfall by waging a war for oil in the Middle East.

Time to update our 9/11 Honour and Dishonour Roll. Some fine qualifees have presented themselves in recent months.
The original idea of the list was to record for posterity those news organizations that have or haven't done their job in covering 9/11. You'll find that roster here. For this iteration, I'm expanding it to include individual media types -- columnists, hosts -- as they've been the busiest truthers or obscurantists of late.
As noted before, entrants may appear on both lists. And, as always, suggestions for additions are invited.
The 9/11 Media Honour Roll
Neocon propagandist hack and editor of the National Post, Canada's answer to the Washington Times, has once again attacked the 9/11 Truth Movement by issuing a series of ad hominem attacks against the University of Lethbridge and Professor Anthony Hall, who are supporting the graduate work of Josh Blakeney. Here is Blakeney's research proposal, work that will be funded to the tune of $7,714 by the university:

When the phrase "conspiracy theorist" is used, most people imagine an anti-social, mentally unstable nut, along the lines of Mel Gibson's taxi-driving paranoiac in the 1997 movie Conspiracy Theory.

Jonathan Kay: Don't insult 9/11 'Truthers' by comparing them to brain-dead 'Birthers'
Posted: July 31, 2009, 2:27 PM by Jonathan Kay
Ever wonder what happened to all those right-wing loonies who sent you email in 2008 insisting that Barack Obama was a Muslim? Turns out they now have greater ambitions: They're trying to convince the world that Obama isn't even a "natural born citizen of the United States," and so is ineligible to be President.
Amazingly, these debunked conspiracy theorists not only have created a large Internet-based movement in recent months, they've also managed to convince some Republican members of Congress that there is real doubt about the legitimacy of Barack Obama's presidency.
The movement has been dubbed the "Birthers" — a play on the word "Truthers," who believe that the September 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job perpetrated (or known about) by warmongering elements within the U.S. government and/or military.
Jonathan Kay of the National Post showed up at another 9/11 talk, in Walkerton, Ontario, May 24th, 2009, and got an earful from the speakers: Graeme MacQueen, Anthony Hall, and Michael Truscello.

Jonathan Kay: An evening in Montreal with Richard Gage, 9/11 Truth Movement prophet extraordinaire
Posted: April 23, 2009, 10:53 PM by Jonathan Kay
Three years ago, Richard Gage says, he was just a run-of-the mill architect, designing steel-frame buildings for clients in the San Francisco area. In March, 2006, that changed: While flipping through stations on his car radio, he caught an interview with David Ray Griffin, a retired philosophy and religion professor who calls the official account of the 9/11 attacks "one big lie."
Beginning that day, Gage became skeptical of the idea that "people living in Afghan caves" could possibly have brought down the World Trade Center. The more likely explanation, he decided, was a plot by warmongering elements within America's own government. Spreading this message is now the man's full-time job.
(Edit: I changed the headline of this blog from an insult directed at Kay generally, referring to how big of an 'a-hole' he is, to something a little less offensive, and a little more apt. My apologies, Mr. Kay, you are just ignorant. -rep.)
He admits he's never read the 9/11 Commission Report or any of its rebuttals.
