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.

It is reassuring to see that on the first page of "Loose Change Forums" search, there are as many "Screw" sites ans "Non Screw" sites.

The mainsteam Left knows better than to team up with these friggin' morons.

To the CTers, naturally, that means they're "agents" of the Bush regime.

Does this mean they are happy with their coverage from the extreme right?

I think they are hush hush because they know alot more of the worlds eyes are on them now, and to save their movement, they have stopped acting like the raving lunatics they usually are, so that the outside world might mistake them for sane.

Let me just say, as the resident liberal here I totally agree with this post.

Pat hit it right on the mark. Liberals should be fighting this as hard as those lunatics fight us. Your conspiracy leaders are lying to you for political gain. I think that nutbar Fetzer my be the only one who actually believes what he says. And anyone looking at that nut talk and not notice the screw loose is blind!

Do classical liberals count? No, no they don't. I'm not even gonna pretend they do.
