Who Is The American Free Press?

Loose Change mentions "The American Free Press" on at least 4 occasions. I found this rather interesting because I had never heard of them before. This is more than they mention the New York Times, which is amazing, because in addition to it being one of the country's most widely read newspapers, most of the events took place in New York. So how did this obscure little newspaper become such a major source for this film? What is it?

Well just go to their website:

Find out why maverick, independent grass-roots media voices such as American Free Press have declared all-out war on the elite-controlled Big Media Monopoly in America and around the globe . . .

OK, I have no problem with being an independent source of information, blogs do that to a certain extent. But what type of information are they reporting? Here are some of the articles:

Prospects Sour for White Males in United States

CIA Death Squad Continues to Pile Up More Bodies

Milosevic Trial in The Hague Embarrasses West

Educators Advocate Homosexuality, Pedophilia

Zionist Circles Benefit From WTC Collapse

Or how about some of the ads they display prominently on their home page?

I didn't link to the ads, because I in no way wish to support these types of people. So we essentially have here a group of paranoid, anti-Semitic, white supremacist conspiracy theorists, and this is one of the major sources for Loose Change. That says a lot.

Thanks to reader Truth, whose research contributed to this post.

Oh boy! Are you really trying to cite credibility by how widely a paper is read as in your comment about the New York Times? More likely, the wider the circulation, the more likely they will be "influenced" by CIA operatives.

It's VERY simple to debunk that. Firstly, in the run up to the Iraqi war, Judith Miller intentionally fed the paper misinformation on the scale of Joseph Gobbles. In fact, she was in collaboration direct collaboration with members of the Bush administration.

Now, you really should ask yourself one question, if we have a "free" press, how does the above situation with Miller come to bear? It's pretty simple because we DON'T have a free press. Many of the so called journalists are actually paid CIA disinformation shills. If you need solid evidence of this, all you have to do is look into the history of "Operation Mockingbird" and how the press has been subverted in this country for a few decades now.

Now do your homework and go here. I'd rather trust a source like American Free Press over the Times any day. But don't limit yourself to one source of any kind, read many and piece together all the facts. As Americans, we are very lazy when it comes to this. We rely on what the "experts" tell us and let their opinions stand as fact for fear to technical subject matters.

Thanks for pointing out the link between 9-11 conspiracism and Holocaust deniers--it's been one of conspiracists' dirty little secrets for too long.

Here's the Southern Poverty Law Center's report on a 2002 conspiracist conference that featured Christopher Bollyn, one of AFP's main "journalists." Bollyn said that a "disintegration ray" could have destroyed the towers. Don't be silly! It would have taken two disintegration rays! /sarcasm

You guys are great...trying to debunk Loose Change by looking at Ads on a website?? WTF?! Posting a detailed history of the founder??

Labeling them as anti-semite which you use in error. How many times do you have to be oppose the political goal of Zionism is completely different than being prejudice and/or racist towards an ethnic group.
Quit using that tired arguement because it gives Arabs and Jews a bad name.

Oh yeah and your adlinks are dead! Fix it or be branded anti-semite!
