30+ 9/11 Truth Hit Pieces In 2 Weeks

For the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attack, the mainstream media has offered
an unprecedented level of apparent bias against reasonable people invested in
justice for the victims of 9/11. The majority of articles below imply that “truthers”
are driven by a fear of chaos and uncertainty to draw comfort from misdirected
rage. Most of the articles make sweeping generalization about those involved
while others are outright insulting.

9/11 Truth Hit Piece #1 — CNN World
“Conspiracy theories are for losers”

The Author: Dr. Joseph Parent and Dr. Joseph Uscinski

The Setup: “The world is awash in conspiracy theories. [“9/11 “truther”
beliefs”] […] The “birther” conspiracy theorists […]
Obama is a secret Muslim intent on instituting Sharia Law […] the president
blew up the Deepwater Horizon […] Osama bin Laden is not dead […]
the Holocaust never happened […] the world is run by the Council on Foreign
Relations, the Freemasons or the Federal Reserve. The list sprawls on.”

The Premise: “When Republicans are in power, right-leaning villains such
as big business dominate conspiracy theorizing. When Democrats are in power,
left-leaning villains such as socialists become the top peril.”

Misdirection: “Although conspiracy theories have anti-democratic aspects, in
this respect they are very fair: All of us get to play the villain eventually.”

“9/11 conspiracy theories thrive 10 years on”

The Author: Sebastian Smith

The Setup: “Defying countless official and non-governmental enquiries,
media reporting, and often common sense, a significant number of people fervently
disbelieve that Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda sent 19 hijackers to execute
the September 11, 2001 massacre. Instead, elements within George W. Bush’s
administration — or perhaps Israeli agents — used pre-placed explosives
and missiles to blow up the World Trade Center and Pentagon.”

The Premise: “The United States has long been fertile ground for conspiracy
theories. In this parallel world, John F. Kennedy was assassinated by anyone
ranging from the CIA to Cuban exiles. The Moon landing pictures were taken in
a studio, while the US government is covering up evidence of UFOs. And American
GIs are still held in bamboo cages in Vietnam.”

Misdirection: “The conspiracy theorists remain a minority and face the scorn
of the counter-conspiracy movement on websites like [debunking911] and [ScrewLooseChange]
which claims to prove wrong almost every statement made during the film.”

9/11 Truth Hit Piece #3 — BBC News Magazine
“9/11 conspiracy theories”

The Author: Staff

The Setup: “It may be 10 years since the attacks in the US on 11 September,
but conspiracy theories have not faded over time…”

The Premise: “Here are five of the most prominent 9/11 conspiracy theories
circulating in online communities.”

Misdirection: “Numerous official reports have been published since the Twin
Towers fell, but just when a piece of evidence casts doubt on one theory, the
focus then shifts to the next “unanswered question”.”

Since 2004, 911Truth.Org has educated the public about the suppressed realities of the September 11 attacks.

We worked with the 9/11 Families to pressure the Bush administration to convene an investigation into the deadliest attacks on US soil since Pearl Harbor. We attended many of the commission hearings and questioned commissioners and bird-dogged elected officials to get answers to the Unanswered Questions that remain so to this day.

We reported the contradictions, lies and omissions on the public record. 911Truth.Org staff have given hundreds of interviews on radio and mainstream network TV.

We cover a wide range of 9/11-related issues in publishing academic papers, original research, and opinion pieces.

We wish to thank our donors who have kept us on the web since 2004! We appreciate your continued support!

We continue to update the website to make the nearly 3000 articles easier to find, read and share. Thanks for visiting us!
