The Media Response to the Growing Influence of the 9/11 Truth Movement

(thanks to LH for pointing out this article to me - VS)

by Elizabeth Woodworth for Global Research


In the past year, in response to emerging independent science on the 9/11 attacks, nine corporate, seven public, and two independent media outlets aired analytic programs investigating the official account. Increasingly, the issue is treated as a scientific controversy worthy of debate, rather than as a "conspiracy theory" ignoring science and common sense. This essay presents these media analyses in the form of 18 case studies. Eight countries – Britain, Canada, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and Russia – have allowed their publicly-owned broadcasting stations to air the full spectrum of evidence challenging the truth of the official account of 9/11.

This more open approach taken in the international media – I could also have included the Japanese media – might be a sign that worldwide public and corporate media organizations are positioning themselves, and preparing their audiences, for a possible revelation of the truth of the claim that forces within the US government were complicit in the attacks – a revelation that would call into question the publicly given rationale for the military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

The evidence now being explored in the international media may pave the way for the US media to take an in-depth look at the implications of what is now known about 9/11, and to re-examine the country's foreign and domestic policies in the light of this knowledge.

Note: Russia's TV Channel 1 organized a major 9/11 event hosted by Alexander Gordon's "Private Viewing" (Закрытый Показ) show which showed the movie "Zero: a 9/11 investigation" followed by a debate featuring Franco Fracassi and Europarlamentarian Guilietto Chiesa (the authors of this documentary), Thierry Meyssan (the french reporter who was the first to raise questions about 9/11), Lieutenant-General Leonid Ivashev, ex KGB experts and many 9/11 witnesses and survivors (For those of you who understand Russian - you can download the full movie and debate here: http://www.rutor.org/torrent/6646/911-rassledovanie-s-nulja_zero-investigation-into-9/11-2007-tvrip). The discussion ended in what can only be called a crushing defeat for the supporters of the "official" 9/11 narrative with even Alexander Gordon himself backing the 'truthers" (Gordon, who lived and worked in the USA for many years is usually known for his pro-USA views).
