Origin of the Loosers

It's well-established that Dylan was inspired to make Loose Change after meeting with James Gandolfini (aka Tony Soprano). Here's a pretty good backgrounder on Dylan, Korey & Jason.

"Loose Change" re-examined several questions on the attack. Copies of the film are sold at anti-war protests all over the country, and the film has been screened worldwide-from New York to London. Even the notoriously conservative Fox News has interviewed Avery and aired portions of the film. "We're getting massive e-mails from people in England, Australia, and Canada wanting to show screenings of "Loose Change 2," says Bermas. Avery, Rowe and Bermas formed LTW. Now the three boys have found themselves in the public eye, fielding questions from the media, as well as from viewers. Though the response is welcome, it was, at first, overwhelming. "It's been quite a ride," says Rowe.

Actually I'm pretty sure it was just a local Fox station that interviewed the young lad; they explained how they got that one in the phone conversation with Eric Hufschmid; basically they saw a reporter at an event, talked up their film and got an interview out of it.

There are a couple horselaughs in the column:

Avery began writing about three conspiracy theorists who believed our government planned the September 11th attack. It was a plot, they theorized, to panic Americans into giving up civil liberties to create the illusion of public safety. "It was completely fictional," Avery says. "Back then I didn't have the answers."

Wait a minute guys, I thought you were just asking questions?

And this drew a snort:

How do the boys respond to the film's detractors? "We respond to our critics with respect," says Bermas. Viewer comments are encouraged on their website's forum at: www.loosechange911.com. "See the film and form your own opinion," they ask. "Do your own research. If there's real evidence supporting it, please tell us."

Yeah, and if there's evidence that Loose Change is filled with lies and misleading information, you can drop it in the circular suggestion box.

We do learn that Bermas' family is a lot wiser than he:

In part, thanks to "Loose Change 2," evidence of flaws in the 9/11 Commission's report has reached mainstream news. Yet some Americans continue to scoff. Why? "Some people just can't see it," says Bermas. Bermas tried to show "Loose Change 2" to his family, but "they just left the room. They just couldn't watch it."

Are some critics of the 9/11-movement 'critics by design?' "An FBI operation to disrupt the peace movement began in the 1970s," Bermas says. "They tried to make Martin Luther King and his movement look bad. So yes, there are some people who are actually working within the government and trying to cause trouble," he adds.

That's typical of Bermas, who's one of those libs who can't quite get his history straight. Remember him at Ground Zero trying to remember what the other country Hitler invaded was? And the notion that government agents are trying to sabotage this film is ridiculous, right Donald, errrr, I mean James?

Hat Tip to this guy, whose post on Loose Change features some pretty strong language, but which is worth reading if that doesn't bother you.

Nesnyc,

Pat's and James' fatigue with coming up with new material is obvious at this point.

Gee, everyone is a critic. What, did Buzz Aldrin steal your secret conspiracy theory decoder ring or something?

Of course any conspiracy theory you invent and throw to the wall it's always going to stick with people who are out there searching for something to believe in.

Bingo.

Very good! This is why the government gets away with push that little "Al Qaeda" myth. A lot of Americans still have a little bit of red neck in them and will readily believe "dem dar aaaayrabs" would be guilty rather than their own government.

Well since "dem dar aaayrabs" (actually a select group of extremists, but why bother with semantics?) did it, why should we believe our government did it? We're not all mindless fools like yourself.

When it's the official story, no one's searching for something to believe in, you dumbass.
