Project Censored Looks Into the Crystal Ball
And comes up with the top "censored" stories of 2007.
Yep, 2007. Amazing how they can tell already that these stories are going to be the top censored stories of 2007; must be because they got some coverage in 2006 and aren't going to be covered much next year.
Given that the #2 story is by disgraced journalist Jason Leopold, best known last year for his "breaking" story that Karl Rove was about to be indicted for his role in Plamegate (which indictment was never handed down), one assumes that the rest of these stories are largely fraudulent. Sure enough at #18, we see that Steven Jones comes in for a mention:
Research into the events of September 11 by Brigham Young University physics professor, Steven E. Jones, concludes that the official explanation for the collapse of the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings is implausible according to laws of physics. Jones is calling for an independent, international scientific investigation “guided not by politicized notions and constraints but rather by observations and calculations.”
Of course, the notion that 9-11 kooks were "censored" by the media in 2006 (let alone 2007) is ridiculous. They got extensive coverage in Time, US News & World Report, Vanity Fair, and on Fox News, among many other outlets.
And of course, Project Censored gets a lot of the details wrong:
In debunking the official explanation of the collapse of the three WTC buildings, Jones cites the complete, rapid, and symmetrical collapse of the buildings; the horizontal explosions (squibs) evidenced in films of the collapses; the fact that the antenna dropped first in the North Tower, suggesting the use of explosives in the core columns; and the large pools of molten metal observed in the basement areas of both towers.
Jones does not posit "explosives"; he claims thermite or thermate, both of which are incendiaries, not explosives. And they bring in Jones' former membership in the "Scholars", apparently unaware that he has been booted from that august fellowship.
