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.

war profiteering proves war on terror is a hoax.

They should be thankful that Jones' "research" was largely ignored.

It saves the twoofers the humiliation of getting asked "So....has Jones' research been peer-reviewed?"

Here is some more "censored stories" from 2007:

Hillary Clinton is really a vampire bat.

Saddam Hussein was NOT executed, but taken to California to make a new movie with Angelina Jolie. Some dipshit will direct.

Matt Damon was caught smoking his own underwear. Mel Gibson joins the American Nazi Party but says he dislikes the swastika.

Oliver Stone wants to make a sequel to "World Trade Center," in which an enterprising young journalist (played by some idjit asshole) finds smoking gun evidence that Dick Cheney personally planted explosives on the 101st floor of Tower 1 on 9/11, then escaped using his Secret Parachute Mobile, but instead Stone is ordered to a mental institution.

The UN awards Iranian President Mahmoud "the Goatfucker" Ahmadinejad "Humanitarian of the Year" after he offers to share nuclear power with Syria, Hezbollah, and Hamas.

And those are just some of the stories you will not read about in 2007...because someone is covering them up, or because they are complete crap. Your guess is as good as mine!

Those were some pretty good stories he posted, most of them are true but I don't know about the others (like the Jones story).

I guess 911Coverup is trying to beat out the king of the Doucebags (BG) and be the first to troll.

I know it is easy to find info on people on the net, but this is not a forum for targetting posters personally.

I've always hated Project Censored, mostly because of how much they get wrong.

Number eleven is a glaring example.

And not only do they get it wrong, they get it in the wrong order. Check out their rankings, and compare them to the relative severity of each item.

Apparently genocide, torture, environmental catastrophe, massive governmental corruption, civilian detention centers, toxic food, and 9/11 pale in comparison to the #1 story on their list: "Future of Internet Debate Ignored by Media."

Nice set of priorities, jerkwads.
