Corporate Media Manipulations

If you tried to Google Actor Charlie Sheen's name together with 9/11 recently, you might have not have had any matches, that's because Google censored the story. You see, last week, Mr. Sheen was on the Alex Jones radio show, when he expressed doubts about the official 9/11 conspiracy theory, which is quickly becoming as dangerous as Holocaust denial. And of course, the media focused in on the tinfoil hat part of Mr. Sheen's comments, those focusing on the Pentagon. Now Mr. Sheen never doubted the Pentagon story he just wanted them to

"Show us this incredible maneuvering, just show it to us. Just show us how this
particular plane pulled off these maneuvers. 270 degree turn at 500 miles and
hour descending 7,000 feet in two and a half minutes, skimming across treetops
the last 500 meters."

Which is not saying that the Pentagon wasn't hit, but maybe was wondering how inexperienced pilots who had never flown a plane that size could have pulled off a manuever that an experienced pilot would have trouble doing. And that was what the morning radio shows focused on, rather than any of the other questions Mr. Sheen (and a lot of other people) would like answered. Such as:

Eyewitness accounts of explosives in the Towers. Supposedly, a fireball went 1100 feet down aa elevator shaft (doesn't heat rise?) to cause the damage that led to the damage that caused the buildings to collapse in to their footprint like a controlled demolition. But there are scores of eyewitness accounts of explosions before the towers fell.

Why did WTC 7 collapse, having sustained fire damage on two floors. Why did owner Larry Silverstein say he decided to "pull" the building ( a demoliton term for pulling the outer walls towards the center of the building) with only two floors damaged? Wiring a building for such an event takes weeks of careful planning, yet it would appear that everything was set to go ahead of time.

There are more troubling question raised by Charlie Sheen concerning 9/11, but to me, the biggest tip-off is the fact the both george Bush and Dick Cheney did all they could to stop any investigation into what happened on that day. When they did finally decide to set up a comission, first they tried to place henry Kissinge in charge, and limited the scope, range, time, and funding for the commission. It's like Janeane Garofolo said on Air America a couple of weeks ago, 9/11 was an inside job. Perhaps if she was a bigger name, she might have generated as much controversy.

This is major. This is too big to censure. I'm stunned that Google would do that.

Yes, no matter what the truth is, they did not do their best to find out..and so did not do right by the families and victims, or to the American people in the interests of not having it happen again. You would think they would want answers, yet so much was suppressed or refused, experts, etc. WHy then? What reason do they have?

And why have they not implemented the recommendations?

This is the first I've heard of this story. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Sheen brought up a good point. He thought it curious that Bush just sat with the children after finding out about the first tower being hit. He wondered why the secret service never made an attempt to whisk Bush away to protect him, and to also protect the children. It was as though they knew Bush and the children were in no harm at that point.

I used to be skeptical of these stories, but after 6 years of the Bush administration I don't put anything past them anymore.

Bush said, weeks after 9/11, that he saw the first plane hit the towers when he was waiting to enter the classroom, while the tape of the first hit was shown the next day.
A bunch of holes, and the lady on CNN was just talking points.

This is major (even though I wish it came from another source- not a CC fan).

Google is becoming a joke. Tibet has been protesting because Google started a Chinese version that censors China's civil rights violations.

Let me get this straight, hippies. You harp on about how incompetent the Bush administration is, and yet you claim they were able to pull off a massive undercover operation witnessed by millions in person and hundreds of millions on TV?

You can't have your veggie cake and eat it too, people!

Seems like Ol' Charlie and my Uncle Earl's VFW post are on the same wavelength......

spooky said...

Now that you guys have Charlie Sheen on your side, you will not be able to be stopped. The liberal's launched a sneak attack on this one, who would of thought you guys had Charlie Sheen in your pocket.
Checkmate. Good job.

Troll Watcher said...

82% of Americans think the government covered up the facts in the 9/11 attack We have more than just Charlie Sheen on our side, asswipe.

Anonymous said...

Wow. What a dazzling use of statistics. Mark Twain comes to mind.

*Seventy-nine percent of Americans believe that, as the Bible says, Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, without a human father (www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6650997/site/newsweek.html)," too. Think there's a correlation?

Nice language, btw. You must have gone to colege, right?

Lew Scannon said...

Really, trollwatcher. Such langauge. Do you kiss your mother with that mouth? Apparently, although anonymous went to college, they never learned how to spell.

LILY BRANFORD said...

Charlie Sheen is busy making his line of children's clothing- did you see that?

Don't worry Spooky, my friend, you still have Faith Hill.

Can you answer me this, somebody? Why must it be a liberal issue to say that we should be committed to truth? Why is the truth about the tragic death of thousands of people so politicized? There are unanswered questions and we should not be satisfied until they are answered- period. Republican or Democrat.

The incessant politicization of everything hinders the public's right to seek truth.

Lew Scannon said...

Maybe it's because liberals are more concerned with truth, while conservatives are more concerned with their perception of what's 'right', which are two different things.

That is what's right, and what the conservatives perception of right is.

Left of Center said...

It a crime that we have let it be rolled over by hasty explainations. I have been looking at video and reading expert theories on this for some time now. I'm convinced that it did not happen as the governmnent says.

Left of Center said...

Hmm , Spooky, what is it about being Republican, that negates the natural human tendency to seek answers and explaination. Do you subscribe to the flat Earth theory? Did your ancestors hide in caves from dinosaurs? Good thing you have pat Roberston on your side, kind of negates our Charly Sheen.Oh I forgot, Mr Sheen has a degree in engineering.
