Guardian of truth?

The Guardian's reactionary and distractionary reporting of 9/11 has tarnished its image as an independent-minded investigative British newspaper. On the anniversary of 9/11 last year it aped the BBC and other sources by uncritically asserting Keith Seffen had "shattered conspiracy theories surrounding the September 11 terrorist attacks" on the basis of an analysis that had not been published. When it was, last February, it shattered nothing but the author's reputation.

Initially, together with its sister paper, The Observer, it raised many of the serious questions that were never answered. In 2004, having gone further than most, it apparently lost its nerve and turned its efforts toward ridiculing those who mistrusted the official story.
