Yogi Berra and the "Scholars" for 9/11 "Truth"

The great philosopher Yogi Berra once famously said, referring to a restaurant, "No one goes there nowadays, it's too crowded." In the spirit of this logic Uncle Fetzer, in another one of his his bizarre self-quoting press releases is complaining that Fox News is trying to silence his organization, by having their members on their network all the time and criticizing them:

Has the Fox television broadcasting network become an attack dog to silence critics of the Bush administration? A group of American citizens called Scholars for 9/11 Truth says yes. They charge that commentators on the Fox network, already known for its conservative bias, have maliciously compared the 9/11 scholars to terrorists and suggested that the FBI follow their members 24 hours a day, thereby contradicting the network's motto of being "fair and balanced".

"The Fox News Network has gone to war with Scholars for 9/11 Truth," founder and co-chair James Fetzer said. "FOX has used 'The O'Reilly Factor' and 'Hannity & Colmes' as attack dogs against 9/11 truth-seekers. These broadcasters charge that we have supplied 'material support' for terrorists, which paves the way for us to be classified as 'enemy combatants.' That means that our members can be arrested and held indefinitely with no charges simply for questioning the government. That smacks of unAmericanism."

OK Jim, if they are trying to shut you up, why exactly are they putting you guys on the air all the time? They have had "Scholars" on at least a half dozen times. They haven't had me on a single time! How many times has CNN or MSNBC had you on the air? What about PBS, CBS, NBC, or ABC? It seems to me like Fox News is the last news network you should be criticizing.

FOX News Network. while being mostly conservative, is at least attempting to bring even the most "absurd" opinions into the debate. Someone said "Where radical Left meets radical Right."
That FOX even gives these whackos a forum to discuss their ideas, is indeed, indicative of a system that allows any dissenters, a venue to vent any and all "theories" of events germane to said occurances. These individuals were not "silenced" but, put on parade; perhaps where they belong. Ridiculing something,is not the same thing as censoring it.

You make excellent points. The conspiracy liars seem to believe that anything that falls short of an outright endorsement of their silly fantasies constitutes censorship. Censorship means that your message gets suppressed--you know, like a best-selling conservative author being ignored by the Times Book Review or the New York Review of Books.

You'd think the Scholars would take a hint when no media outlet takes them seriously...I mean if they are right, they'd have no problem getting interviews on the BBC, CBC, Al Jazeera or some other non-American news giant that's not (according to them) 'controlled by the Government'...the fact that this just isn't happening should say something.

if the scholars are "on" to fox's little game, then why do they keep appearing on their shows?

I'm Sorry, but I don't understand exactly what you're saying. Do you have a point here?

He's right! I did the math and it adds up!

Bush/Cheney x Evil - terrorist(islamic) = 9/11

Why didn't I see this before?!?!

You guys didn't believe me when I used numerology to prove that Richard Nixon was behind the whole thing. I'll bet that 'political piracy' knows what I'm talking about. In fact, he's just the guy to explain it.

Uncle Bluto...I mean Fetzer, thinks that because Fox has them on, and then criticizes them, that he is making them look silly...foolish. What the dumbass doesnt realize, is that Fox could simply put them on the air and let them say what they want, and they would make fools out of themselves anyway. The hosts just make it a little more entertaining.

I don't know what is more pathetic, his grasp of proper english, his profanity, or his stupidity. All three made for a chuckle over lunch again, so thanks Pir8. Please post again soon. We need more spirocetes to give us their opinions...

Cuz they're despeate.

At least FOX is nice enough to give them the time of day. Granted, it's stictly for comedy sake but still....

First they complain that the mainstream doesn't give them air time. Then when Fox does put them on the air, they complain about how they were treated. There's just no pleasing some people.

"if they are trying to shut you up, why exactly are they putting you guys on the air all the time?"

Simple, they're shutting them up by giving them enough rope with which to hang themselves. It's brilliant! Just keep letting them speak and eventually they'll twist themselves into such a logical knot their brains will just shutdown. I like to refer to it as a brain shifting without a clutch.

Not that I support it, but sometimes you gotta wonder how these people sleep at night.

The sad thing is the insidious nature of what FoxNews is really doing by putting these whackjobs on.

These people are presented as "the modern liberal in America" essentially.

And they're all such publicity hounds they can't realize that they're basically pawns in a deliberate attempt to discredit (by association) those who oppose the President for LEGITIMATE reasons.
