Uh.. So which is it? Isn't CNN a puppet of the Government only showing what they want you to hear, including fake 'live' footage of the events on 9/11 as some suggest?

If not and they can be trusted, then you have to be prepared to throw out of the window ideas that they were in on 9/11 and showed fake footage for instance...


considering that all this uproar was caused by a story on a celebrity gossip show (rather than the news & current affairs shows), which picks up momentum and then is suddenly dropped (and not even touched by the news & current affairs side), its not hard to draw a conclusion that they dont want this story out in the public, nor do they want it investigated.

reporting charlie sheen's interview with alex jones was most likely an accident which slipped through the net, and you can be sure it wont happen again. a few people involved in the show production will probably not have their contracts renewed, if they are not sacked outright for any old excuse.

i think they've been ordered to kill the story, regardless of the viewing figures or emails & phone calls of support they had for reporting it in the first place.

just my opinion

yep CNN wanted to do the follow up but they got the order to "can it", so they did. Amazing it ever got trough anyhow...
Also, AJ was asked to come to FOX, but was later dissmissed, as they apparently "changed their mind".

Well aint that a surprise


PS: The poll they conducted on CNN was getting dangerously close to 90% in favor of the government conspiracy, i belive its gone as well.

I think they thought they would show a story about Charlie Sheen's views on 911 to maybe point out how radical and crazy the thinking is in Hollywood. It backfired on them completely.

1) The important thing about Sheen is that he IS an actor, thus, he can go public with his thoughts and the nation will hear it.


He is an actor. He is not an expert on 9/11.


I don't know ANYONE, regardless of their affiliation, who actually TELLS you to bootleg their videos as long as you don't back door and sell them. That right there kills your argument...


Ha! Mr. Jones knows that people will "bootleg" his online videos either way. The fact is that Mr. Jones is making money, and has an interest in trumping up 9/11 conspiracies.


You have any idea how much money they pay Rush Limbaugh to lie to his neocon followers?


Mr. Limbaugh does not lie. He has an opinion based show. He speaks his mind and believes what he says. Mr. Jones on the other hand tries to push his personal "feelings" as fact; to make money.

-- Boat


More taurus feces.

Sheen knows quite a bit about 9/11. And, you still are missing my point. The point is that he's someone who's big enough to get the tongues wagging and the people listening. He's big enough to make it more mainstream that people are questioning the official story.

, I gotta laugh as you continue to say Alex is in it for the money. If, like you claim, he REALLY didn't want people bootlegging his stuff, he would a) do like Sony and make his DVDs copy-proof and b) do like Metallica and join the "prosecute people for bootlegging" crowd. Again,
.

And, finally...


Rush Limbaugh is honest, oh, boy. BTW, I notice you still harp on Alex's pockets, but you said NOTHING about Limbaugh's feddy. That wouldn't be because he's worth at least 10 times as much as Jones is worth, would it?


But honest? The guy lied about the Patriot Act being used against citizens, and his hypocrisy has already been pointed out. But, I must say, I'm not surprised you would support Rush...

As I stated in a previous post, I was interested to see who might come forward out of the pack of liberal pretenders out there and say 'something ' about Sheens efforts.
So far:
Al Franken-Nothing
Jon Stewart-Nothing
Bill Maher-Nothing
Amy Goodman-Nothing
Noam Chomski-Nothing

Now if Sheen had stuck his d**k out instead of his neck , 3 of the 5 would be all over it!

good point. that's why these people are earning the title of 'left gatekeepers'.

jon stewart gives more news than the news, but at the same time, people are laughing all the way to the gulag about it.

on the bright side, many republicans are waking up to the un-republican behaviour of herr busch and krew. and, things like physics don't USUALLY take a political stance.

sharon stone defended sheen.
ad asner was bumped at the last minute from debating the matter on CNN, but he's a good guy.
there are still talking heads that have brains AND balls.
loose change is waking up a LOT of people.
scholars for truth have all but irrefutably proven that bombs were used, and that there was criminal activity involving the mob and insurance fraud.

it is only a matter of time, now.

i think this is all part of the plan, though. in typical order out of chaos fashion, are 'they' trying to bankrupt america, and throw her into civil war?

a very real possibility. just like dirty harry, pointing his gun at your head, saying, 'make my day'.

- If the Bush administration tried to pressure CNN in any way,
then CNN, which is run by radical leftwingers, would have had a
field day with the 'government pressure' angle.

- There was no 'government pressure' not to show Charlie Sheen.
Know how I know? Because Republicans LOVE IT when Hollywood
celebs open their mouths and say stupid things and then after
saying stupid things they say 'vote democrat'. Charlie Sheen,
and the rest of Hollywood, are a gold mine for the Republicans.
NO WAY would republicans want him shut down.

Your totally wrong , and utterly bias

Nope. I'm totally correct. www.drudgereport.com...
CNN has low ratings. Not as low as MSNBC (a much better network),
but they are lower than FOX, CBS, ABC, and NBC.


the storys it runs are generally the same as the
storys all other news stations run with

Not really. They spin it left. Always have. CNN is the network of
choice among the left in Hollywood and everywhere else. Even
the left wing show 'West Wing' had a fantasy love affair with CNN.
CNN is for the left what Fox is for the right.

Fun little site that picks up the spin - www.mrc.org...

except

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann thinks Saddam Hussein has a
point when the ex-Iraqi dicator calls President Bush "a tyrant," while CNN's
Christiane Amanpour suggests the "courage" Saddam has shown "fighting
for his life before a kangeroo court" makes him best-suited to unify Iraq.


People with your mind set need to get a grip and take your blindfold off

Blah blah blah. Back at ya' junior.


thats called ignorant Prejudice

You wish.


You just cant get away with foolish comments
like this Im going to call you on it.


You aren't capable of 'calling me' on anything. And frankly, the
fact that you aren't aware (or refuse to be aware) of the left leaning
bias of CNN tells us that YOU are the one who needs to get a grip.

What are you talking about?

People at CNN and the guy who was to get interviewed said that the govt pressured them to kill the story. Alex Jones was supposed to go on Fox, but they suddenly cancelled on him.

Even by your logic, CNN wouldn't have cancelled it themselves. Like YOU pointed out, they are low on ratings. But, this Charlie Sheen thing was HUGE for them. So, why would a news network low on ratings kill a story generating huge ratings themselves?

I do not believe ANYTHING that news networks claim - not CNN,
not MSNBC, not FOX. Do you really believe anything a news outlet
claims?? I don't anymore.

IF CNN (and FOX for that matter), had any pressure from the
White House they'd be making such a big fuss ... the aliens on
the dark side of the moon would hear it.


So, why would a news network low on ratings kill a story generating huge ratings themselves?


For bigger ratings. The longer they talk about it; the longer they
claim a conspiracy; the longer they keep people holding on waiting
and listening; the longer they'll get people to actually watch.

Soap operas do the same thing all the time. Drag out story lines
to get you hooked so you'll watch. No difference here.

Frankly ... Hollywood and their rants, especially consipracy theories,
aren't big news. I highly doubt many people care what Charlie Sheen
says. Hollywood has made freaks out of themselves as far as politics
goes. Even if Charlie Sheen DID have a good theory ... no one would
listen.

Did you see 'Team America'??? THAT is how people view hollywoodites.
Like idiots and freaks.

God bless him... if that's what he thinks then he has every right to
say so. News outlets have every right to carry it. But no one listens
to hollywood and so no one needs to 'pressure' any news network
to shut up. No one is listening anyways.

Pity really ... it's kinda' like the boy who cried wolf too many times.
When someone in Hollywood actually has something of fairly
important significance to say, no one listens anymore.

So, let me get this straight...

CNN execs (or whoever runs things) - "Look, this Charlie Sheen conspiracy story is gold! Our ratings are going through the roof! We're getting TONS of emails, and no one else is covering this story! But, you know what would make this thing bigger? If we just kill the story right now! All those people are gonna keep watching the story we scrapped! Call the guys at Showbiz and tell them to drop it like it's hot!!!"

I must not be too bright, this still doesn't make sense to me.

You hear about liberal bias all the time, but it doesn't really exist in the way we're supposed to think it is. Everything on the media is played up, and at the top, all media is owned by the same kinds of corporations that run everything else. Their real interests lie with the corporations and banks and other interest groups that are behind both themselves and the government.

If you want to know how the media works, read Manufacturing Consent, co-authored by Noam Chomsky. I'm not prepared to discuss the material here; it would be too much to cover in a single post anyway, really.

I'm sure you are a very bright person.
I'm probably not explaining how I see it very well.

The way I see it is much as bsbray just said

Everything on the media is played up


I betchya' CNN figured it could get higher ratings by claiming to have
info, and then having that alleged info squashed by the White House.
If they actually put forth the information, which at this point looks like
it's just Charlie Sheens opinion on events, then the story would be
over in just a day. If they say that they have info and that the gov't
is trying to suppress it; then it gets more air time and a bigger build
up of 'drama tension'.

Only thing is ... not many folks watch CNN anymore and most of
America thinks that celebrities are nothing more than tabloid fodder
and not to be taken seriously.

rupert murdoch.

i spell that right?

murdock? murdach? anyway.

chomsky turns out to be, like moore, a 'left gatekeeper'.

chomsky, 'the greastest intellectual alive', believes the 19 arab lie.

sad, eh?

edit:

sorry. i watched 'manufacturing consent', and found it invaluable as a lens on media.

watch it.

it's great, true, true.

19 arabs? REALLY?!?

I'm not sure when it closed exactly, but the final results of that survey was 83% said yes with 44827 votes, and 17% said no with 9107 votes.
The original question being "Do you agree with Charlie Sheen that the U.S. government covered up the real events of the 9/11 attacks?"
That's eight out of ten people that smell something fishy.

Does anybody know how long those surveys stay up?

I thought with the recent Alex Jones and Charlie Sheen thing, this would be an interesting thread to bump.
What a pity the media spent so much time and money on telling us how terrible Sheen is after this story broke, because they probably won't be eating any crow to cover the story again.
I think Sheen should have hammered down more of the questions raised the first time when he was able to get the media attention it deserved. I fear they have wasted thier shot and sat on it too long without responding to the media smear campaign to regain that level of attention.
