With little regard for those family members of victims who question the official account of the 9/11 attacks, mainstream media news outlets have published over 30 inaccurate, derogatory, and stereotyping hit pieces in the 2 weeks leading up to the tenth anniversary of the attacks. Among the articles there are many common themes, sources, logical fallacies, and insults.
Co-director of Foreign Policy In Focus, Jeff Feffer demonstrates his mainstream bias toward 9/11 truth, 911 conspiracy theories, and “truthers.” Feffer compares ‘truthers’ to bacteria and says we are credulous, anti-Semitic, dysfunctional, like ‘birthers,’ spiritually confused, and wasting our time.
[C]onspiracy theorists […] investigate as much in sorrow as in anger. They are always just one confession away from the truth. This kind of logic is much more understandable, if no more sensible, after reading Among the Truthers: A Journey Through America’s Growing Conspiracist Underground, a smart and serious new book by Canadian journalist Jonathan […]
9/11 was the event that created the “Post-9/11 World.” If any information comes out that says we were lied to about that day, then that is essential, newsworthy information. Period. For some reason, our media doesn’t agree with me.
It is the media’s job to make sure citizens are aware of what’s going on in their country, and in the world. It is absolutely essential that we are an informed citizenry because if we aren’t, then we pay a huge price.
The 9/11 conspiracy movement, seemingly the most hopeless of causes when it emerged years ago, is still nibbling at the edges of the mainstream. Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, a seasoned conspiracist on this issue, has appeared on “The Larry King Show” on CNN casting doubts on conventional 9/11 thinking. In December, truTV will air […]
IS it just me or does everyone think the interweb has a lot to answer for? In a weird alignment of planets, this week in the news, at home and at work I’ve been plagued by conspiracy theorists determined to convince me, once again, that George Bush, Zionists or even the Vatican were responsible for […]
About a week ago, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declared to the United Nations that most people in the world believe the United States was behind the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. To many people in the West, the statement was ludicrous, almost laughable if it weren’t so incendiary. And surveys show that a majority […]
Let’s be kind. Let’s say it was a coincidence that, at about the same time the Iranian madman was at the UN spewing his nonsense that 9/11 was an “inside job,” the Pakistani terror mom was in a downtown courtroom claiming Israelis destroyed the Twin Towers. Now let’s be honest. The only coincidence was the […]
Attacked by the Left. Attacked by the Right. Attacked by “edgy” political comedians for scant, confused laughs – with no discernible purpose other than to discourage and further isolate those seeking justice. No matter if their political affiliation is Coke, or whether they lean hard towards Pepsi, everyone in the corporate mainstream media can agree […]
