A Word About Lefty Gatekeepers
This came up in Alex Jones' freak show last night on C-Span. Barrie Zwiecker read off a list of names of people, magazines and radio shows that are not doing enough for the 9-11 Denial Movement, including Amy Goodman (Democracy Now radio), The Nation, Z Mag, and a couple others. The claim is that these hardline leftist outlets are not doing enough to promote Denial, because they're part of the corporate media.
Rolling my eyes here. Look, the reason 9-11 Denial gets ignored by the Lefty Gatekeepers is because it's completely and utterly wacko. It's not that they don't want to help you defeat Bush and the Republicans; it's because they know if they feature you it will discredit them and probably help Bush and the Republicans.
Based on the sudden amount of traffic we are getting here, it's obvious that a lot of people watched last night's show (and today's rebroadcast) and are hitting the search engines. It's not my place to tell liberals and Democrats who are not conspiracy nutbars what to do with their time. But... you could do worse than to thank these Gatekeepers for not giving more publicity to a movement that will only hurt them in the long run.
