Moron the Media Blackout

Here's a rather amusing piece regarding a talk given by CT fruitcake Morgan Reynolds at the University of Wisconsin. The writer's understanding of the media is rather amusing:

Despite the prestigious speaker and venue, and the gravity of the charges aired, for most Americans -- indeed most Madisonians -- the event never happened. Why? Because it was censored, subjected to a total media blackout. Not a word in the State Journal. Not a word in The Capital Times. Not a word on the local TV news. Not a word on local radio news. And, of course, not a word in the national media.

Why the blackout? Because Reynolds violated the ultimate U.S. media taboo. He charges the Bush administration with orchestrating the 9/11 attacks as a pretext for launching a preplanned "long war" in the Middle East, rolling back our civil liberties, and massively increasing military spending.

Oh, the irony! Complaining that there's a taboo on publishing unfounded charges against the Bush administration in the Capitol Times, in an editorial published by... you guessed it, the Capitol Times!

As a Watergate-era graduate of the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism, I was taught that exposing government lies and corruption is the supreme duty of the Fourth Estate. I simply cannot fathom the current situation. I do not understand the 9/11 truth blackout. I wish someone would explain it to me.

I'd be happy to perform that service. The media don't cover you guys because the place that nutty conspiracy theories gets covered is the National Enquirer (although it would help if you claimed that the Martians did it).

LGF comes to the same conclusion.

Here's an interesting link with video: Spying, Israel, and 9/11

Fox News started this series of 4 episodes and mysteriously had second thoughts after the 2nd airing.

BG, that's the stuff Raimondo harps on. I've no doubt the Israelis are spying on us.

Joan, I'd hate to see some nutjob take the wind out of some kid's sails.

A growing list of scientists has lined up behind BYU physicist Steven Jones and MIT engineer Jeff King in support of Griffin's position, as evidenced by the growth of Scholars for 9/11 Truth ( and Scientific Professionals Investigating 9/11 (

Talk about misleading. Yes, Steven Jones is an actual physicist at BYU, but Jeff King is not an engineer at MIT. He got his degree from MIT in the early 70s, in electrical engineering. Unless the collapse of the world trade center is based on the wiring shorting out, this is not very relevent.

Who do you think knows more about physics, you or Jeff King?

What does that matter? He's not a structural engineer.
