Media Coverage

Documentation on media coverage on WTC7

I search for the BBC coverage on WTC7 after it collapsed. I've just read something by 911veritas, but can't find it anymore. can someone help me out?

Their behaviour could be important for further investigations, as we have to know how they handled their early WTC collapse reporting "error".
As far as I know the immediately decided to made a cover-up.

In this matter it could be interesting to dig for the coverage of all news outlets regarding WTC7.

I suspect no one was live on, several broke their live feeds just minutes before the collapse, I need to know when were the first pictures of the smoldering debris shown, when the actually collapse?

Because of the strange behaviour of the BBC in special, but all media in general when it somes to WTC7 and the oblivion, I feel maybe we find out more interesting details.
It should be worth the time.

Tikkun - A Jewish Magazine, an Interfaith Movement & 9/11 Skepticism

Maybe you blinked and missed it, but this past week Rabbi Michael Lerner's Tikkun magazine published a long article by David Ray Griffin called The American Empire and 9/11;

Editor’s Note: Because we at Tikkun are aware of extensive arguments that have appeared elsewhere against the perspective presented by the author of this piece, we debated long and hard about whether to present David Ray Griffin's argument here. We decided it was still important, given that if his view is true, the position he articulates would provide adequate grounds for impeachment of the president, grounds far more substantive than those that formed the basis of the impeachment by a Republican dominated Congress of President Bill Clinton. You are invited to give your responses to this piece.

Tikkun is read by a mixed audience, with a decent circulation;

...Tikkun is a bimonthly progressive Jewish critique of politics and society, read by Jews and non-Jews alike for our blend of spirituality and cutting-edge analysis of current events and culture... Tikkun has a circulation base of 24,000, an audience of 75,000, and a sell-through rate on the newsstand of 40 percent. Tikkun is distributed nationally and internationally...

With an average age of 40, Tikkun readers are highly-educated, influential, affluent professionals loyal to Tikkun—they share Tikkun with their friends, online and off, and save back issues... Book buyers and websurfers, Tikkun readers care deeply about progessive causes...

This is exceptionally good news. Intelligent progressives with an open mind are going to read Griffin's cogent rational essay, and they are going to think. Many of these people probably don't normally come to websites like or, and so a previously untapped batch of critically thinking individuals are going to see an alternative view of 9/11 that may be new to them, presented by a trusted source, Tikkun.

If you have a moment, write Tikkun and thank them for this exposure;

BBC strikes Google-YouTube deal

By Tim Weber
Business editor, BBC News website

Friday, 2 March 2007, 11:31 GMT

The BBC has struck a content deal with YouTube, the web's most popular video sharing website, owned by Google.

Three YouTube channels - one for news and two for entertainment - will showcase short clips of BBC content.

The BBC hopes that the deal will help it reach YouTube's monthly audience of more than 70 million users and drive extra traffic to its own website.

The corporation will also get a share of the advertising revenue generated by traffic to the new YouTube channels.

Three deals in one

The deal with Google - non-exclusive and set to run for several years - will establish three different YouTube services:

* BBC: One of the BBC's two entertainment channels will be a "public service" proposition, featuring no advertising.

So how did the BBC report that Building 7 at the World Trade Centre had collapsed around half an hour before it did so? My earlier posting on the subject has attracted a lot of interest so we've been doing more investigating within the BBC to put together the sequence of events.

Five and a half years have passed so it's quite difficult to answer every outstanding question. But we do know quite a bit more than we did on Tuesday, as a result of checking the BBC archives and what other media were doing at the time. I've also read through some of the reports published after 9/11 to help put together the sequence of events.

911veritas BBC video - v.2

911veritas has created an updated version of his BBC video.

Once you have it downloaded, please mirror if you can, and post a link below, once we have a mirror or two, we'll bump to the front page.

If you can seed a .torrent, please do.

The provenance for the original unedited video begins at the First Amendment Center in Washington DC.* According to this post, this video has been "archived" but not continuously available, since October, 2001;

I apologize, I have started to understand more of the history of this collection (it started way before my time). There is an important correction to a previous post: the Television Archive is a separate not-for-profit from the Internet Archive.

Sander Hicks' open letter to the Phoenix New Times - Re: Stephen Lemons

Edit: Please direct comments for the Phoenix New Times to:

Rick Barrs, Editor-inChief

Hicks has updated his LTTE here.

"Who cares?"

Watch Lemons disrupt the 9/11 Accountability press conference, here. Key segment at 48:55 where he interrupts Bob McIlvaine. Jon Gold reports the incident as follows; - At one point, Bob McIlvaine started speaking, and the idiot journalist started talking over him. Someone said to him, "He lost his son on 9/11", and he responded by saying, "Who cares?" Other instances of speaking out of cue, and causing a general disruption up to the point of the security personnel being asked to usher him out of the conference at 55:50, 57:15, and 1:00.

This seems to contrast with the strange narrative of the conference posted at the New Times currently.

Is yellow journalism the bread and butter of the New Times?

Is insulting the surviving family of 9/11 victims, to their faces, company policy at the New Times?

WANTED: 3rd Party Source for the BBC World Segment

For posterity, please put feelers out for a copy of Jane Standley's live report on the BBC World News service on 9/11, that matches this one:

A raw, unedited VHS recording in PAL format is preferred, so that we can all independently verify that the source file discovered on the Internet Archive was not altered in any way before it was upped to the Archive.

If the person who ripped and upped the footage to the Archive can send us a copy, that would be great, too.

I apologize, I have started to understand more of the history of this collection (it started way before my time). There is an important correction to a previous post: the Television Archive is a separate not-for-profit from the Internet Archive.

I now understand that these materials were available, in streaming form, from October 11, 2001 (when it was launched at the First Amendment Center in Washington DC) for a couple of years. Unfortunately a datacenter move brought these down. The Internet Archive has been working, pro-bono (meaning free), to bring these back up in an appropriate way. When we can do a reasonable job of this, we will let everyone know. Until then, please be patient with us.

In the mean time, we hope the BBC is ok with our allowing some form of distribution of this key program. In which case we will do this immediately. Fingers crossed on that front.

BBC Has Lost Tapes Of 21st Century's Defining Moment

BBC Has Lost Tapes Of 21st Century's Defining Moment

9/11 coverage gone due to "cock up". Why is this not a world news headline?

Steve Watson
Wednesday, February 28, 2007

It has come to light this week that the most pre-eminent broadcasting company in the world has lost the original recordings of its output for the entire day on September 11th 2001, just over five years on, yet no major news agency has even bothered to report the fact.

Despite being currently the biggest story on the internet and in the alternative media, the only place in the mainstream the story has appeared is on a small German news website.

This highlights the fact that the mainstream media is not free to report events. The information it disseminates is strictly controlled and regulated.

The BBC was forced into claiming that the recordings covering the 9/11 attacks have mysteriously vanished in response to fierce criticism over the fact that on the day the news agency reported that World Trade Center Building 7 had collapsed almost 30 minutes before it actually came down...


Thanks, Danse

CNN also jumped the gun w/ WTC7 'collapse'

The BBC footage is getting a lot of attention, as it should. Here's a clip of CNN saying building 7 "has either collapsed or is collapsing" an hour early. Strange thing to predict given that steel buildings don't fall down like that - -
