Dam Breaks, ABC News Covers Willie Nelson 9/11 Story
May force other mainstream outlets to pick up icon's comments

The dam has broken on mainstream media coverage of Willie Nelson's comments yesterday about the implosion of the WTC twin towers with ABC News picking up the story on their front page this afternoon.

AOL News have also now reported on the story.

The link leads to an embedded video clip which includes Nelson's comments about how he doubts the official 9/11 story during yesterday's Alex Jones Show. Conforming to the usual standards of establishment media, ABC don't even provide the source of where Nelson made his comments.

The story briefly appeared on the Drudge Report yesterday before it was pulled but the blogosphere is raging with discussion about Nelson's take on the terror attacks.

ABC News' decision to give the issue attention will probably force other mainstream outlets to follow suit.

Jack Cafferty - closet 9/11 truther?

Jack Cafferty ran a report that took a strong stance against our "two party" system and included a clip of 9/11 truthers at about 0:30. I've written Mr. Cafferty before practically begging him to research the topic of 9/11 truth . He is a former NYC local news anchorman and has real street smarts. He's also one of the few commentators on the MSM that tells it (almost) like it is. I would bet my bottom dollar this guy questions the official story but is not allowed to tackle the subject on his program.

Bhutto, JFK, and Conspiracies

Bhutto, JFK, and Conspiracies
by Jacob G. Hornberger

It is interesting that Justin Raimondo, he of 9-11 Truth dismissal, decided to link to this article!

http://www.fff.org/blog/jghblog2007-12-31.asp

Why is the mainstream press considering the possibility that Pakistani intelligence agencies were behind the Bhutto killing? According to the Guardian, Pakistan’s intelligence agencies “are widely believed to carry out kidnappings, unlawful detentions and extrajudicial killings. The speed with which the government accused al-Qaida did little to allay fears of state involvement, and conflicting accounts of the cause of death have convinced many of a cover-up.”

Yet, as everyone knows, U.S. intelligence agencies, especially the CIA, have long been involved in the same sort of nefarious activities — kidnappings, torture, coups, murder, and assassinations, even as far back as the Kennedy administration.

911blacklist.org Mission Statement:


In the six years since the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, the mainstream media in America has largely been a mouthpiece of the Bush administration. All of the major networks including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and others had until recently, been silently complicit in the cover-up of the events of that day, the un-Constitutional wars that would follow, and the steady erosion of our Constitutionally protected rights.

Mainstream Media vs. 9/11 Truth

It's getting increasingly harder for Mainstream Media to ignore 9/11 Truth

Original contaxt: YouTube

How many Pentagon witnesses say they saw a plane hit light poles?

757 impact proponents seem to have no problem citing mainstream media reports with zero research, analysis, confirmation, or investigation.

Considering that 9/11 was a psychological attack with the media being the weapon of choice this is inherently suicide in the pursuit of truth.

Typically the same lists are published over and over by people like Jim Hoffman, Eric Bart, and most recently, anonymous blogger Arabasque.

CIT has shown you why we can't trust a lot of these suspect witnesses and why it's so important to seek out previously unknown witnesses if we want to find the real truth.

Due to the north of the citgo evidence we focus a lot of attention on the light poles and see them as the key physical evidence proving an outright deception on 9/11.

So this thread is meant to examine all known witnesses who allegedly saw the light poles get hit.

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,

9/11: As It Happened on MSNBC?

Did anyone else catch the "lightly edited" MSNBC "9/11: As It Happened" which was broadcast ?twice? on Tues. 9/11/07? I was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy and objectivity (especially after the History Channel's bias), but I can't seem to find a link to a DVD for purchase. It could be a little traumatic or stressful for some to watch 2 hours of 9/11 coverage over again, though.

MSNBC lists this at their website (but I can't find the 2 hour program):
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20607714/

About the only reference my searches found was this at Democratic Underground's discussion board:

Another excellent MSM coverage resource archive is located at:

For some reason the date looks fishy on this post preview- it was posted at 20:00 MDT on Fri. 9-14-2007.

Mainstream Media is wavering

Look at the forked stick that the mainstream media find themselves in right now ? Up until now, they have been the unqustioned purveyors and vendors of Truth in America and around the world. Whether you admit it or not, the clear evidence says that they have helped the government to cover up 9/11. This knowledge is percolating into the general public consciousness, and people are beginning to turn in ever greater numbers to the internet as a more reliable form of news and Truth. This is not going unnoticed by the main news organs. That is why I say that they will sooner or later HAVE to start publishing what they know of 9/11. It's strictly a matter of their own survival. Their shareholders must be anxiously watching the DOW indexes.I think the Truth Movement should devote more time and effort in bringing pressure to bear on people like Murdoch.Hit them in the wallet, and you will see some action. Why pay for omissions and outright lies?

9/11 and the Propaganda Model

911 and the Propaganda Model

The need to deter democracy by alienating public opinion from public policy, is one that has been long understood. Back in 1921, the highly influential political columnist and media analyst Walter Lippmann, wrote the book “Public Opinion”,where he discussed the need for the “manufacture of consent”; given the inherent pitfalls and barriers to an accurate and effective public opinion (democracy, essentially), it is necessary that this opinion is crafted by a higher sphere of influence. This was understood very well by Edward Bernays, who was the founder of Public Relations (he indeed coined the term), and the formulator of not just corporate, but also political PR. He sketches out his views on this in his 1928 work, "Propaganda where he states that “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society”, suggesting like Lippmann, that democracy is a “chaos” that needs regulation from above. This “above” is a small section of elites: “We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” These are the people who will ensure that the masses are sedated, and free to run their daily lives, without participating in the broader picture of public policy, given the dangers that this would pose to the influence of said elites, and thus the smooth functioning of society. To paraphrase Bernays, a leader must serve by leading, not lead by serving.

Arrest raises questions of when it’s OK for officers to ask for ID; men considering lawsuit
By Deb McKee

The Tribune-Star
WEST TERRE HAUTE Two men walking across the nation to protest the Iraq war say police officers in West Terre Haute violated their constitutional rights last week when one of the men was arrested for failing to produce identification.

Police say the request for identification was legitimate, and the arrest lawful.
