I am apparently one of the VERY few people who had tuned in to cable news around 8:47AM on Tuesday, September 11th 2001. I say this because virtually
everything that was shown on FOX News and CNN between 8:47 and 9:00 has been either completely wiped off the face of the earth, or severely
I had some rare time home from work on 9/11 and watched the whole production from soup to nuts, thanks to my wife who woke me up and advised me to
check out FOX News. CBS, NBC, and ABC did not break from their regular programming until shortly before the South Tower was attacked.
There were glaring discrepancies on the part of FOX/CNN from the very outset, which somehow have managed to remain totally obscured from 9/11
discussions. The footage I am referring to was very damning, and shortly after the tragedy I set out to find it in what would become an endless
It consumed literally all of my spare time which was very limited, as I wasn't home very much between 2000-05. My job required extensive travel and
I had to drive from place to place, hauling my tools around and living in hotels. Many times my wife and daughter would catch a flight to the various
cities so we could spend weekends together.
Initially, I looked for help on internet forums and was either completely ignored or relentlessly ridiculed (kook, tin foiler, etc) into submission.
Back then, the 'party liners' were uber-aggressive and my posts would quickly get buried by these 'patriots'. What these people were doing on
conspiracy forums, I have not a clue [/sarcasm].
What it all boils down to is this:
The incriminating footage of FOX/CNN was not entered into news archives on the internet, niether in video form nor text dialogue. I used every search
tool and key word I could think of to no avail...for years. There still isn't even an essay or editorial on the subject that I can find. There are
video archives available now that are being represented as recordings of the live reports. These are fake reproductions that do not vaguely resemble
what was shown on TV.
Here is my description of what my wife and I saw on FOX/CNN during the opening act of 9/11:
When the biggest story of the century initially broke, the reports were sketchy at best. The consensus was that a Cessna type plane had somehow hit
the WTC North Tower and the situation was being portrayed as non-threatening. The damage was reported as mostly cosmetic in nature; affecting only a
small area inside the tower which did not pose any threat to workers in the rest of the building.
There was no reason to doubt the story; the images they were showing fit the description. Nonetheless, this was certainly an unusual development and
the news anchors appeared to be nervous and lacking their usual continuity. Meanwhile, a slightly out of focus camera shot showed the WTC with just a
faint wisp of smoke wafting out of the wound. The camera did not zoom in on the damage for a closer look and I remember squinting at the TV.
They didn't pan down to the street level and when FOX went to commercial, I flipped the channel to CNN only to see the exact same angle from a
stationary camera with no audio. (After later seeing video footage shot by various eyewitnesses which showed that heavy smoke was billowing from the
North Tower, the images being broadcast live to the masses must have been from a premade recording of some sort)
There were not any field reporters dispatched to the WTC by CNN or FOX. No colorful eye witness accounts live at the scene that you would expect.
Nope.. nothing like that. They must not have fielded any phone calls from good sources, looked out the window, or removed their heads from their
collective asses that morning. At this early juncture of 9/11, there was a clear and present danger.
What happened next was incomprehensible. The news anchors on both CNN and FOX News encouraged people who worked in and around the WTC that it was
business as usual. Pressing on their ear pieces and hesitating between sentences, it was as if someone was carefully choosing their words for
They SPECIFICALLY and repeatedly advised employees of Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley that it was going to be a BIG TRADING DAY and they were going
to miss out on hefty commissions if they didn't come in to work. This was extremely peculiar. An obvious question would be why did the NYSE even
sound the opening bell that day? Anyone see a pattern yet?
Instead of warning of the inherent dangers and urging people to stay clear of the WTC, they were actually giving the "all clear". Something was
important enough to put more lives in harms way while risking that which is supposedly dearest to news agencies - a little thing called CREDIBILITY.
Who is responsible for the muzzle of secrecy that was firmly imposed on the media the morning of 9/11? How much did FOX/CNN get in return for their
I guess we've all been led to believe that in an age of breaking news stories from highly competitive networks who thrive on being the first on the
scene; a jumbo jet could roar into NYC striking a national landmark during RUSH HOUR while being mistaken for a CESSNA. We've all heard the old adage
'bad news travels fast'. Maybe it headed out across the Atlantic Ocean and had to circumnavigate the globe on 9/11, along with those scrambled F-15
It wasn't until the second tower exploded that the nightmarish pseudo-reality became apparent to the viewing public in a sick example of shock TV.
Wouldn't you just know it...that coincidentally, NOBODY was on commercial break at 9:03 when the real fireworks started. The money shot.
The shock value was so great that the media's previous total and utter lack of news gathering capabilities went virtually unnoticed. Then, and only
then; CNN and Fox News finally started performing the job that their trusting viewers had come to expect: 'Heroically' reporting on the worst
'terrorist' attack ever, while solidifying their bond with one of the most terrified, naive herd of sheep in the world.
The NYSE didn't close until 9:32AM, despite the financial district being surrounded by death and destruction. Some timelines have no record of it
opening at all. I wonder how many people in the news industry took the time to make a few trades during this little window of opportunity?
Peter Jennings wasn't in on it. He called them out live on TV, referencing controlled demolition. Rest in peace brother
