The first link is the MSNBC video with the mother and baby. The 2nd one is from another side of the building and shows more evidence of advanced
knowledge that WTC7 was coming down.
I'd really like to find CNN and FOX News footage from the morning of 9/11 from about 8:45AM until 9:05. My wife directed my attention to CNN that
morning just as the story broke, but it didn't seem important enough to record at the time. During these earliest stages of the 9/11 tragedy, I
witnessed what I would describe as the most sinister and deceptive example of deliberate misreporting in the history of live television.
#1 - The regular CNN/FOX anchors were not on the air the morning of 9/11. I remember one lady on CNN didn't seem to have ANY experience on live TV.
She kept struggling with her headset, cupping her hand over one ear as she was obviously being told exactly what to say between long pauses. I think
the regular anchors/reporters were being briefed by CIA types and partaking in the selling frenzy on the NYSE, which promptly closed at 9:25AM.
Everyone 'in the know' likely made a killing while the rest of America lost their retirement funds as countless holdings became worthless. As an
example, when the stock exchange finally opened some days later, my father-in-law had lost about $100,000 in mutual funds.
#2 - The CNN/FOX news anchors did not convey any sense of urgency to their viewing audience. The cameras showed a distant WTC north tower and only a
minimal of smoke was visible. The pictures fit the description that was given. They were reporting that apparently a small cessna type plane had
impacted the WTC. Details and witnesses were not immediately forthcoming. *How bizarre is it that an alleged jumbo jet can explode into the WTC during
rush hour and go unnoticed?* .....Anyway, CNN went to commercial and I flipped over to FOX only to see the same images with the same exact sketchy
#3 - Both CNN and FOX were either showing what I believe to be a looped fake video of the north tower, or their cameras were badly out of focus. The
reason I say that is because videos shot from different angles by civilians during that same time period showed drastically heavier smoke billowing
from the WTC in stark contrast to what I saw on live TV.
#4 - CNN and FOX's cameras did not pan down to the WTC at street level where many humans lay dead and mangled. Instead of portraying the scene as the
warzone it was, the news anchors were actually giving the 'all clear' and saying that the fires were confined to a small area and didn't pose a
hazard! If that weren't bad enough, they were actually summonsing certain brokerage employees (specifically naming companies like Merrill Lynch,
Cantor Fitzgerald, etc.) with offices in the burning WTC to report to work or they would be missing out on some hefty commissions. They said something
like, "You'd better get here in the next ten minutes for the opening bell because it's business as usual and from what we hear it's going to be a
busy day and you don't want to be late." CNN had called one company (their broker?) and the guy said he was the only one in his office so far.
#5 - The news anchors were visibly startled by at least two large explosions before the first tower collapsed. These blasts were confirmed by
reporters closer to ground zero with panic in their voices. After the alleged jumbo jet struck the south tower shortly after 9AM, the earlier
newsgathering blunders were overshadowed by the traumatic images of the WTC for most viewers I guess. Not for me...I smelled a big old rat and
immediately realized that CNN, FOX, and others had just sacrificed their credibility and sold us out.
If anyone can find the footage from that morning I'll be greatly indebted to you. I've scoured the internet for it many times with no success
