A Rare Moment of (Almost) Honesty Among the Loosers

Occasionally we get a few words of honesty, intentionally or not, from the Loose Change creators. Korey Rowe:


ROWE: What I encourage people to do is go out and research it themselves. We don't ever come out and say that everything we say is 100 percent. We know there are errors in the documentary, and we've actually left them in there so that people
discredit us and do the research for themselves -- the B52 (remarked to have flown into the Empire State Building), the use of Wikipedia, things like that. We left them in there so people will want to discredit us and go out and research the events yourself and come up with your own conclusions.

Dylan Avery:

Avery: We made that film essentially as a bunch a kids. That’s, that’s the reality of the situation. We’re a bunch of kids tackling a subject far beyond the scope of any one documentary. I will be the first to admit our film definitely contained errors, it still does contain some dubious claims, and it definitely does come to some conclusions that are not 100 percent backed up by the facts.

Now, from the aforementioned Bermas' radio show:


Avery: The thing is, some people can be like, oh we are taking eyewitnesses out of context. Maybe some of them. Maybe some of them we might be taking out of context, but I mean, there’s the woman that I uhh, I didn’t exactly open the montage with, but one of the first people in the explosions montage in the second edition recut, the woman clearly specifies, no there were two explosions in the same building and one was lower.

Bermas: The black news anchor?

Avery: Uhh no, she wasn’t a news anchor, she was just an eyewitness.

OK, for the benefit of your audience could you let us know which eyewitnesses you might be taking out of context? Maybe you could have those little pop-ups like they have on music videos?

I always love the "we did it on purpose" copout.

I always used that when I failed a test.

"Man, Mr. Smith, you have a sharp eye. I purposely got all those wrong to test you."

The fits's hitting then shan for these guys.

I cannot wait for Final Cut! Not to see it, but to see it get debunked.

Oh I get it - LC is like a game of some sort.

"Spot the errors and compare the answers with your friends!"

They WANT to be discredited. Uh huh.

They seem to be using the
"just kidding"
defense.

If the Loose Change kids hired Inspector Clouseau to investigate their "facts", it would be a step up.
