Jesse Ventura discusses 9/11 on The View: Liz Hasslebeck tries to "school" Jesse with Popular Mechanics talking points
Unfortunately, some in the audience began to applaud Hasslebeck for "debunking" the WTC demolition with Popular Mechanics talking points about how the steel didn't need to melt, only weaken.
Fortunately, the applause was limited and didn't really blossom into a full round of applause. And the majority of applause goes to the words out of Jesse's mouth.
Also on the unfortunate list: Ventura once again failed to mention ae911truth.org. I'm going to e-mail Dick Russell, Jesse's publicist and co-writer, and relay this piece of advice.
Former 'View' Host O'Donnell Finds Pilots Who Believe 9/11 Conspiracy
By Ken Shepherd | August 22, 2007 - 16:41 ET
Sometimes I wonder if, when she left "The View," Rosie O'Donnell ever looked in the mirror and borrowed from the 37th President of the United States. "You won't have Rosie to kick around anymore!" Of Course, Richard Nixon never had a blog, Rosie does, and when she's not showing videos of her kids or writing stream-of-consciousness poetry, she's sharing her favorite 9/11 conspiracy theories.
Joy of joys.
Here's the latest:

ABC Investigates Why Rosie ‘Really’ Left ‘The View’; Ignores 9/11 Theories
Posted by Scott Whitlock on May 29, 2007 - 11:37.
On Tuesday’s "Good Morning America," the ABC program promised to investigate the "final straw" that pushed Rosie O’Donnell to leave "The View." Yet, somehow, neither anchor Chris Cuomo, nor reporter John Berman managed to mention the comedienne’s obsessive promotion of bizarre 9/11 conspiracy theories.
The segment also sympathetically portrayed O’Donnell. Co-anchor Cuomo even blurted out that Rosie "has to come here," meaning GMA. But first, reporter Berman tenderly noted that a video blog on her website features a picture of Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the show’s token conservative and frequent brunt of O’Donnell’s aggression:
John Berman: "As for Rosie O’Donnell, it does seem like she has at least a touch of nostalgia. On her blog, a new music video montage, pictures of her time at ‘The View,’ including one of Elisabeth Hasselbeck."
Update from William Rodriguez:
Dear Friends and supporters,
Fox news came out today with the rumor that Rosie O'Donnell was fired because she mentioned my story to a live audience of "The View" that was recorded by a spectator and posted on the Internet. The absurdity of their comments and their lack of investigative skills to even research that what she was talking about, makes Fox look like always, a far right demagogic network with no desire to look on the real evidence of 9/11. They finished by attacking the messenger like always.
Rosie did not get fired by mentioning me. I canceled the appearance before Rosie decided to quit, due to my many efforts in Washington and nationwide. Look on Rosie's blog today ( HTTP://www.rosie.com/blog/sections/ask-ro/ ) and she also address the rumors:
Fox says you left because of a video of you talking about wtc7 to the audience during a commercial break. Um, you talked about that on air! And you need to keep talking! Perpetuate the conversation!
i didnt get fired for talking about him
he was a booked guest in fact
Hope this clarifies it for my friends, supporters and enemies alike.
I am still working hard for the truth and Rosie is by my side.

"Is this the real reason?" Fox News asked Tuesday why Rosie O'Donnell is no longer on The View, before playing a YouTube video of O'Donnell warming up her audience by "ranting" about suspicious events she says were omitted from the 9/11 Commission Report.
Most accounts have stated that O'Donnell's departure was due to an on-air fight over Iraq with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
The Fox hosts speculate that the video might have come from an audience member's cellphone, and then comment briefly on how "people go off on this topic when Rosie talks about World Trade Center Building Number 7," before cutting to a story about a giant lizard.
The video was also posted at the Screw Loose Change blog, which characterized O'Donnell as "raving about WTC 7 being omitted from the 9-11 Commission Report," adding "like the 9-11 Commission was concerned about a building in which nobody died, which was not a direct target of the attacks."
Loose Change is an internet documentary which has received widespread press coverage over the last couple of years. Although many "9/11 truth" movement activists have criticized prior edits of the documentary, including a since-removed section which claimed video "proof" that the World Trade Center had been blown up, billionaire Mark Cuban is planning to finance a theatrical release, after its latest edit, with actor Charlie Sheen possibly providing narration.
"And anyway, the notion that the 9-11 Commission Report (PDF file) does not mention WTC 7 is wrong," Pat at "Screw Loose Change" writes, before citing four references to it, including page numbers.
However, none of these selections refer to the destruction of WTC 7, which has perplexed many scientists, government investigators and architects over the years.

Rosie won't be back on 'The View'
Today at 1:10 pm
Rosie O'Donnell has fought her last fight at `The View.' ABC said Friday she won't be back on the show following her angry confrontation with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Wednesday.
O'Donnell asked for, and received, an early exit from her contract. She was due to leave "The View" in mid-June.
"Rosie contributed to one of our most exciting and successful years at `The View,'" show creator Barbara Walters said. "I am most appreciative. Our close and affectionate relationship will not change."
In a statement, O'Donnell said she was grateful. "It's been an amazing year and I love all three women."
Presumably, that includes Hasselbeck. The two exchanged bitter words on Wednesday over O'Donnell's opposition to the war in Iraq. They've frequently had snippy political exchanges during O'Donnell's year on the daytime chatfest, but never as long and loud as that one.

ABC's "The View", originally scheduled to feature 9/11 Truth proponents Willie Rodriguez and the Loose Change crew, would have been pre-empted by Bush's press conference today had it not already been cancelled.
Coincidence or not?
On a side note: The Press Conference was a sham. Bush is a blathering idiot and the press are controlled. We as a nation should be ashamed of ourselves for allowing Bush & Co. to dictate for the past 6+ years.
They shot Kennedy. Bush & Co. thrives. What a world.
"To establish any mode to abolish war, however advantageous it might be to Nations, would be to take from such Government the most lucrative of its branches." Thomas Paine
A little late but oh well. It's not too interesting a read anyway.
Dear Ms. Hasselbeck... The 9/11 Conspiracy Visits The View
Written by Damian Penny
Published May 23, 2007
Thursday, May 24 will be a big day for the creators of Loose Change, the wildly successful Internet “documentary” which says the Pentagon was struck by a missile instead of a plane, the World Trade Center was brought down by a controlled demolition, and that the passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 were taken to Cleveland and then spirited away, presumably to Mars.
Korey Rowe and Dylan Avery, along with Willie Rodriguez, a 9/11 survivor who insists he saw evidence of controlled demolition, will appear on a major network daytime TV show, ABC’s The View. Rosie O’Donnell will thankfully be leaving the show in a few weeks, but as a going away present, ABC is giving her the chance to promote 9/11 conspiracy nonsense to a nationwide audience.
UPDATE: Rumor has it the episode has been Canceled, more info to come...
Dont forget to tune in to The View on thursday, May 24!
William Rodriguez will be appearing alongside Dylan Avery and Korey Rowe.
This recent development is bittersweet; it was assumed by many that when Rosie O'Donnell said "we'll go to Harvard", that The View would invite as guests scientists or professionals such as Steven Jones, Kevin Ryan, Richard Gage, etc. However, I would still consider this a positive event given the fact that there are few and far between a member of the 9/11 Truth Movement gets a fair shake in the mainstream media.
On May 24, an average audience of 3.2 million viewers will be able to witness the testimony of 9/11 hero William Rodriguez, and talking points will be presented by the Louder Than Words crew, in addition to promoting the latest version of their film, now known as Loose Change: Final Cut.
Per the Alex Jones Show and ABC programming. 9/11 hero William Rodriguez and the makers of Loose Change will appear on The View, Thursday May 24th.
Loose Change Creators on The View May 24th - watchingtheview.com
According to a release from ABC, Korey Rowe and Dylan Avery, creators of the 9/11 conspiracy documentary Loose Change will appear on the May 24th show. Also listed is William Rodriguez, who was a janitor at the North Tower of the World Trade Center, who has since become part of the 9/11 truth movement. The only other guests listed for that date are the winners of Dancing With the Stars, so it appears that the show will not have representatives from both sides of the topic. Rosie O’Donnell has said before that we have been hearing the other side for years, so maybe the show will only cover the topic from one angle. However, since the show line-up often goes through changes before the show is taped, it is possible that they might be adding additional guests. It is also possible that they might have the other side in another segment on a different day.
If you are unfamiliar with the documentary, it is available on YouTube.

Dear Ro, I would love to see a show with experts on both sides to discuss WTC7.Silly to always talk about it but never realy pursue the truth once and for all, don’t you think? Please?
the show has been booked
Update from prisonplanet.com:
We have now come to understand that prominent 9/11 film makers and other activists within the movement are scheduled to appear on The View in upcoming weeks, as well as debunkers like Popular Mechanics, but that the two camps will appear on separate shows and not engage in a debate of any kind.
Expect a week long orgy of ad hominem attack pieces from Neo-Con attack dogs like O'Reilly, Hannity and the rest of the usual suspects.

Leo, Rosie make Time's most influential
Heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio and envelope-pushers Rosie O'Donnell and Sacha Baron Cohen are among the entertainment newsmakers on Time magazine's list of 100 people who shape the world.
The list of 100 most influential, on newsstands Friday, also includes Queen Elizabeth II, presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama (news, bio, voting record), YouTube founders Steve Chen and Chad Hurley, director Martin Scorsese and model Kate Moss. It does not include President Bush.
In a piece she wrote for the magazine, Barbara Walters, the creator of "The View," had kind words to say about O'Donnell, who announced last week she was leaving the ABC talk show in June because she and the network couldn't agree on a new contract.
"And so, last September, we began a thrilling roller-coaster ride," Walters wrote. "We followed Rosie's passion and compassion, her feuds and fearlessness, her humanity and humor."
Walters said she and O'Donnell "remain respectful and affectionate friends."
According to today's entry on Rosie O'Donnell's blog, The View will not have WTC 7 experts on.
Rosie says she's devoting next year to getting this word out.
Thank you again Rosie!!!!!
