No offense to conspiracy theorist on 911, but try reading the whole article from popular mechanics debunking the conspiracy theory. Read this before you jump to conclusions. Here is the link very long article. www.popularmechanics.com...

The Mainstream Media is getting violent because they were complicit in the coverup of 9/11. The MSM (including Popular Mechanics) has been compromised at the highest levels by the same group of people who carried out 9/11. Now their lies are crumbling and they are lashing out in desparation by using their attack dog Bill O'Reilly, the most obnoxious, hate-filled, propaganda-spewing piece of human trash on TV.
Also, O'Reilly has been enjoying a much needed spike in viewership since he started bashing Rosie. A lot of Americans still suffer from 9/11 post-traumatic stress and cannot accept the truth about the nature of their government, so they get angry. 9/11 Truthers are trying to learn the truth for themselves by researching all the facts. On the flip-side, establishment leeches merely repeat the same mantras, unable to answer all the questions, blissfully ignorant and violently embracing the official myth, and attacking anyone who thinks any differently.
Whats with the whole "9/11 Questions hurt and dishonor the victims and their families" line. If anyone has disrespected the victims its the administration, by politicizing 9/11 and using it as an excuse to invade countries. Not to mention the fact that THEY are the ones who MASSACRED these people in the first place! Sickening. MOST of the families are asking questions about 9/11 themselves! Does the Mainstream Media want us to believe that these families are dishonoring THEMSELVES by not trusting their gov't?

Perhaps its not that the media is so violent towards the Truth movement but rather returning the temperature of debate radiated from their opposition...
Any person who has ever tried to debunk the theories winds up labeled a mouthpiece for The Man(tm), a shill for the NWO, a war-mongering baby-killing constitution-burning fiend who feeds on the blood of innocent bunnies under a full moon.

Is it just me, or is the media in general rather violent in their responses to 9/11 conspiracy theories?
I was watching the news last night, Fox News, and I was just blown away by the force in which Bill and his guest responded to Rosies words on 9/11....
So much anger, and hatred if you ask me, and why?
I did a thread a long time ago from TIME on 9/11 and I saw the same venom there as well..
Do they really truly feel it is "anti-American" to speak out or question 9/11?
Am I the only one who sees this venom towards 9/11 researchers?
I believe they called any researching 9/11 to be "Crackpot scientist wanna bes"

One of the biggest reasons that comes to mind to get downright nasty towards the whole 9/11 thing is the fact that the Truthers believe that they have every right to run roughshod over everybody else in their quest to spread 'the truth'. I've seen it on many sites where Truthers actually hijack threads completely unrelated to 911 to push their agenda on everybody else.
If you take a moment to step back and let your brain entertain all the various theories and ideas you can't help but realize that some quite honestly are crazy. The idea that 3000 people were paid to leave their families behind and keep what would be the most elaborate conspiracy in the history of the world a complete secret. But thats going off on a tangent, look at how hard the Truth movement presses, and how equally vicious they get when somebody offers a counter to their concepts. Any person who has ever tried to debunk the theories winds up labeled a mouthpiece for The Man(tm), a shill for the NWO, a war-mongering baby-killing constitution-burning fiend who feeds on the blood of innocent bunnies under a full moon.
