Kevin Barrett: Liberal news media continue to block debate about 9/11 truth
The Capital Times | June 28, 2007
Dear Editor: Last year The Capital Times distinguished itself as the first mainstream U.S. daily to publish not one but two hard-hitting 9/11 truth op-ed columns -- both by yours truly.
In one, I asked why the media weren't covering the dozens of former high-level military, intelligence and administration officials who are charging or implying that 9/11 was an inside job. (See http://patriotsquestion911.com.)
Then, instead of covering these generals, colonels, CIA officers, Bush administration officials and other notables, the media decided to cover a part-time university lecturer -- me. I would have thought it more significant that Col. Robert Bowman, a Cal Tech Ph.D., much-decorated fighter pilot and former chief of the Star Wars missile defense program under two presidents, is running for high office on a 9/11 truth platform than that a part-time university lecturer, however charming and articulate, is doing 9/11 activism in his spare time.
Unfortunately, it isn't just the mainstream media that are censoring the questions raised by the 9/11 truth movement. With a few honorable exceptions, the left and alternative media are complicit in the coverup of blatant, in-your-face high treason and mass murder. Amy Goodman of "Democracy Now" was present for the demolition of World Trade Center Building 7 (Google the video), yet in almost six years she has not breathed a word about WTC-7, the ultimate smoking gun of 9/11.
Matt Rothschild of The Progressive told me in May 2005, just a month after David Griffin's nationally televised UW-Madison talk, that he had never heard of Building 7. By summer 2006, Rothschild was spouting nonsense in an attempt to debunk 9/11 skeptics, from a knowledge base of near zero.
Allegedly liberal newspapers seem to go out of their way to avoid mentioning the debate on 9/11 that is raging in the U.S. (where a poll showed 36 percent of the population suspects an "inside job") and around the world.
On June 22 the New York Times ran a laudatory article about Rosie O'Donnell's new uncensored video blog -- without even mentioning the elephant in the living room, Rosie's outspoken support for 9/11 truth.
Now that Michael Moore has joined O'Donnell in speaking out for 9/11 truth, and Harper's editor Lewis Lapham has admitted to reading David Griffin's "Debunking 9/11 Debunking," will the media on the left rescind their blackout on our most important national debate since the Civil War?
