9/11 Truth Activist Sues Glenn Beck and Fox News for Defamation


georgewashington2.blogspot.com

An East Coast 9/11 truth activist is preparing to file a defamation lawsuit against TV / radio personality, Glenn Beck, the producers of the Glenn Beck Program, and the Fox News Channel
The complaint will note that - on October 22, 2007 - Beck suggested that those identifying themselves as associated with the 9/11 truth movement are “dangerous” “anarchists” who deny the Holocaust, and are “the kind of group that Timothy McVeigh would come from.”

Finally, don't buy Glenn Beck's shallow attempt to link the Holocaust Museum murderer with 9/11 truthers. Geraldo Rivera previously tried to do the exact same thing in connection with the Times Square bombing, and failed miserably. And the Simon Weisenthal Center previously accused credible 9/11 truth organizations of being terrorists, or at least helping to radicalize people into becoming terrorists.

In reality, psychiatrists and psychologists have said that 9/11 truth activists are sane, and even the 9/11 Commissioners themselves no longer believe the government's version of 9/11. Should we really label the high level military leaders, intelligence professionals, Congressmen, FBI officials and legal scholars who doubt the government's version of 9/11 as terrorists?

In fact, the government labels anyone who disagrees with it a "terrorist", and government apologists are eager to label anyone "taking a cynical stance toward politics, mistrusting authority, endorsing democratic practices, ... and displaying an inquisitive, imaginative outlook" as worthy of a Stalinist trip to the insane asylum.

The overwhelming majority of people who protest the aggressive actions of the government of Israel, the Federal Reserve's policies, or the official explanation of 9/11 are peaceful grandparents, mothers, father, ministers, lawyers, doctors, accountants, firefighters, children and other healthy, stable people.

Don't paint with the same with-us-or-against-us broad brush that George W. Bush did. Judge individuals on a case-by-case basis.

So is anybody going to sue the DHS for basically saying the same thing?

I will wait and see if they win their suit before I proceed with mine as I fit their description of a possible terroist.

This must be bogus because the article states this occured on October 22, 2007. Beck started with FoxNews this year so why on Earth would they try and sue FoxNews?

I guess people don't take the time to research stories for facts, GB goes back at least 4 years making statements (CNN, Radio & Fox) about 9/11 truthers trying to link them to or as "terriorist" and so on...

Tons and Tons of links online linking GB to such comments if searched and equally as many Youtube videos of such comments.

It's about time somebody attempts to hold the media responsable for their false reporting and misleading of the public.

Sorry, but I'm not buying what you are selling.


Why would they sue FoxNews when Beck was with CNN?

Seems like the story should say they are going to sue CNN and Beck because I believe Beck was with CNN in 2007.

Glad your not buying it. Beck did work for CNN in 2007 when he made other comments but WORKS FOR FOX NOW WHEN HE MADE HIS MOST RECENT COMMENTS WHICH ARE ALSO LIABLE.

I am just curious? is that photo really you?

I understand what you are saying BUT the article specifically mentions the date of October 22, 2007. He was NOT with Fox then.

Anyway, it doesn't matter because Beck is allowed to give his opinion. This is just another attempt to silence those who are not of the liberal mindset.

No, it's not me.

I don't care if the lawsuit is baseless or very unlikely to be successful. This is a great way to draw attention to Glen Beck's lies. Sad thing is people don't start paying attention to a lot of issues unless someone makes a big fuss over them.

Why doesn't one of the group who investigate 911, on a serious note sure glenn beck for what he siad. I thought you could in america, as it paints everyone with the same brush.

The guy is pure slime, and no one should be even listening to him from our side of things.

The suit will also note that during Beck’s June 10th broadcast Beck linked the murder of the Washington D.C. holocaust museum guard with "9/11 truthers."


Because Beck is currently employed by Fox News, they are the ones responsible for what he says on the air. While I doubt this guy is going to win his case, I certainly hope he does. The biggest issue I see is that its hard to legally define "911 truthseekers" as a group. Add to that the fact that Beck will be backed by the financial might of Rupert Murdoch and Fox News, and its seems pretty likely this case will die before it even goes to court.

Your comments are spot on... I wish I could have said it as well as you just did!

Thank you for posting.

Wow, that is real smart.

I guess you would not care if people made baseless claims against you in public. It's nice to know you don't care.

What exactly has he lied about? I have not seen it yet.
Also, people are allowed to give there opinion. Again, this is just another attempt to silence those who don't fall in line with the dangerous liberal mindset.

Wow. You're seriously asking what a member of the msm (let alone Fox News) has lied about? You might find a shorter list asking what he hasn't lied about. His most recent one (that I can think of) was saying that Von Brunn, the fellow who shot up the Holocaust museum, was a "hero" to the 9/11 truth movement. Again, I don't watch his show, but I'm sure he's lied about plenty since then.

And the 9/11 truth movement is NOT a "liberal" movement. It's a truth movement. People from all different backgrounds don't trust the official story, referring to them as 'terrorists' is the first step in labeling all political dissenters as terrorists, and thus ensuring the downfall of the first amendment.

I'm sorry, YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT? Hmm... Please stop with the Liberal tagging.... This is not a right or left issue, it is a search for truth issue. By the way when the Media reports something as fact with nothing to back it up it's called SLANDER especially if it's somebody like GB.

By the way The Vetrans Admin and WWll Vet's are sueing the DHS. It might not ever make it to court but I bet Fox will settle like they did with O'Reilly when he tried to de-pants his intern a couple of years ago.

I think it is a right/left thing because why would they want to sue FoxNews when the date in the article mentions 2007. Beck was not with Fox in 2007.

It's like saying you work for McDonalds and yell at a customer then you quit and go work for Burger King. The customer then wants to sue you and Burger King for your comments which you made at McDonalds. It makes no sense.

So you are commenting on something you did not see or hear.
I did actually watch this particular show and I did not hear him say "hero". Even IF he did, so what? This is NOT something to sue over. He is allowed to give his opinion right?

Finaly!! Didn't I make a thread a few weeks back about doing this very thing? Defamation, namecalling/labeling!

Someone fallowed through with my idea
I doubt it.

But seriously, good luck to this person!

No, actually, it called defamation. Slander is written and is criminal, defamation is civil. Also, they have to prove that he KNEW what he was saying was false. I highly doubt because of his consistent history with his OPINION, that they will get very far.

Everyone has a right to express their opinion. Although I might disagree with his opinion, that doesn't change his right to express it.

Again you admitte you haven't heard or seen his latest remarks regarding 9/11 truthers which was two nights ago while working for Fox. I know that the other Members of ATS are rolling there eye's at me laughing for even trying to explain this to you but I am reaching down deep into my very patient bag so that maybe you will look up the video with his statement or you can just find my other thread to see it on ATS.

Have a great day and thanks for commenting anyways
