Rush Limbaugh fill-in host Jason Lewis made reference to a group of 9/11 Truth protesters who took over a live MSNBC takeover during the RNC last week– noting that chants of “9/11 was an inside job” were timed to interrupt the pundits and reach TV audiences.
Lewis quipped that the “BOTH viewers” in the MSNBC audience probably ‘don’t mind’ hearing these 9/11 statements. Lewis then asked rhetorically, “Why are you protesting the anchors on MSNBC? They think it was an inside job, too.” Of course, no one at MSNBC has been so daring as to speak out for 9/11 truth– this is merely a partisan frame-up/smear against a rival news source.
LISTEN HERE TO THE FIRST MINUTE OF LEWIS’ RANT:
If this comment, which is decidedly not pro-9/11 truth, is meant to suggest anything outside of the mindless ‘liberal NBC (actually just an arm of the military-industrial complex), conservative FOX (pro-Pentagon propaganda)’ debate, it could be that MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann has told some truth about Cheney’s willingness to put false-flag provocations where Navy SEALS are shot to kickstart a war with Iran on the table as a proposal in consideration.
It is interesting to note that only days after 9/11 truthers took over hours of MSNBC’s live broadcast at the RNC, which followed two separate incidences of 9/11 truth taking over MSNBC’s live broadcast at the DNC, both Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann have been reportedly pulled from MSNBC’s 2008 election coverage. Supposedly, Matthews and Olbermann came under fire for ‘biased’ coverage in the virtually meaningless debate between puppet candidate McCain and puppet candidate Obama.
According to the Detroit Free Press, “The tipping point appears to have come during the GOP convention when Olbermann criticized MSNBC for showing a Sept. 11-themed video prepared by the Republicans. Matthews also exchanged harsh on-air words with Mr. O during convention telecasts.”
That is not to suggest that chants from 9/11 Truthers had any connection with Olbermann’s criticism of the GOP’s 9/11-exploiting ads, but it is clear that 9/11 truth interruptions during both the RNC and DNC were widely noted.
Here’s a look back at Alex Jones, Luke Rudkowsi and We Are Change Colorado taking over MSNBC at the DNC, despite physical attacks from crowd members and MSNBC staffers:
