On November 22, Dan Rather received the Committee to Protect Journalists' Burton Benjamin Memorial Award for 2011 at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. What follows is the speech he gave upon accepting the prestigious award. -- JPS/RSN

One of Bud Benjamin's dreams was to expand the CBS Evening News to a full hour. And Bud wasn't thinking of filling it with helicopter shots, celebrity gossip and punditry. He imagined an entire hour brimming with investigative reporting, exposés and dispatches from around the world.

It was a different time in journalism. A time when professional duty was patriotic, and the freedom of the press motivated and inspired newsrooms. I know it is hard to believe - but it's true - newsrooms were not supposed to turn a profit. Frankly, news was considered an acceptable loss on the balance sheet.

French, Italian, German Media to Leave US and UK in the Dust

September 2, 2011

If you thought the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 would be an endless barrage of media coverage rehashing the official story and taking occasional swipes at the 9/11 truth movement, think again.

Well, if you live in Europe, that is.

This coming Sunday, September 4, three major European channels will air in-depth stories on the Remember Building 7 campaign. M6, among France’s largest channels, will show a 90-minute documentary about various 9/11 family and first responder groups, a significant portion of which will cover Remember Building 7 (click here to see the trailer). In the same vein, RAI 3, Italy’s BBC, will show a feature length documentary that devotes significant time to Remember Building 7. And RTL, one of Germany’s largest channels, will show a Spiegel TV special about Remember Building 7 and the 9/11 truth movement.

That is just the beginning. Next week more stories will follow. When all is said and done, tens of millions of Europeans will learn about Building 7 during the 10th Anniversary.

Richard has developed a presentation entitled 9/11: Blueprint for Truth – The Architecture of Destruction which he has given before architects throughout the Bay Area and beyond to the general public throughout the United States, as well as in Canada, Europe, Japan, and Australia.

I confirmed my interview earlier today.

AMONG THE TRUTHERS
By Jonathan Kay
Harper Collins
368 pages, $32.99 hardcover, $25.99 ebook

Reviewed by Frank Moher

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.

NWI Times: Architect tells Munster crowd a controlled demolition felled the Twin Towers

http://www.nwitimes.com/news/local/lake/munster/article_8c79f518-3eef-5b39-9bdc-fe816a843e16.html

MUNSTER | An architect who questions the official story behind the collapse of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, spoke to a receptive audience Monday night at the Center for the Visual and Performing Arts in Munster.

Richard Gage, founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, appeared at the behest of Liberty Straight Up, an activist group and social organization in favor of limited government. It has members who live in Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties.

Gage is on tour to promote his group's position that the fall of the World Trade Center in New York City during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks had all the earmarks of a controlled demolition. Neither fire nor the impact of two airplanes was enough to bring down the Twin Towers, he said.

During a multimedia presentation, Gage said he was less concerned with the motives for the destruction and the people behind it than with what he said is the science behind the collapse.

“We want a new investigation that incorporates all the evidence,” he said.

A Response To Bill Moyers

I'd first like to say that I respect both Bill Moyers and Robert Parry, even though I thoroughly disagree with them about their stance on the cover-up of 9/11. Bill Moyers documentary entitled "The Secret Government: The Constitution In Crisis," and Robert Parry's work on the Iran Contra Affair are excellent.

I have little doubt that over the years, Bill Moyers and Robert Parry have received a multitude of emails from people demanding they give attention to the cover-up of 9/11. I have little doubt that a large majority of those emails talked about "crazy" theories, or made accusations of them for not covering certain issues. Unfortunately, there are people in the 9/11 Truth Movement who do these things. I, myself, have been known to write a nastygram on occasion.

Oilpocalypse Now

For many years the focus of my activism was global economics, changing the monetary system in particular, not an easy issue, few people were interested. I realized that to change the monetary system required a change in the world's belief system, not an easy task. In the wake of 9/11, after recognizing that it had all the fingerprints of a black operation, I thought that if anything could change the belief system of the American public, it would be a revelation of the truth about 9/11. I had no idea how many obstacles would be placed in my path when I organized the first rally and march to demand an investigation of 9/11 back in January 2002. The Deception Dollars were born out of an attempt to overcome media censorship by just handing out flyers to people, in hopes that they would visit one of the few websites challenging the official narrative of 9/11.
