After hearing on the radio and TV over the last few weeks about the upcoming anniversary, I have found that the media is making a bigger deal about this than the average American.

Just a few minutes ago, the local radio claimed that 9/11 was weighing heavily on the minds of local residents.....No, its not!

Most people I talk to could care less about it being the 10th anniversary. Do you? I know it was a horrible event in our history, but I feel as though the media is using this as an excuse to push "special" programing and even conduct special events in our local schools.

Is anyone else tired of it?

Me too buddy, me too. They are really cranking out the propaganda BS.

It's as if they don't want us to forget the thing they spent years burning into our subconcious.

I am trying to point out the over-bearing media attention paid to this issue. Your beef with Truthers is another thread's issue.

What is "the" truth exactly?

No motive for it eh?

What about all the gold stored under (WTC4 i believe it was), which only 200 million was recovered from billions...

Billion dollar asbestos removal job on the twin towers

Pretext into war with the middle east

Take away civilian privacy rights with the (Anti)Patriot Act

Your right, thats not motivation at all

ON TOPIC - I dont really know what to think, I do agree most people dont give a S# about what happened 10 years ago... I dont watch TV myself to know how bad the propaganda is in swing...

Only those who are informed really care it seems...




Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together. - Dwight Eisenhower

Amen to that brother

I am so sick of 911 and "god bless the firemen" that I could puke.

Enough already.

P.S. My brother-in-law is a fireman. I don't have anything against firemen, just 911 hype.

I was just talking with a friend today about this.
With all the deaths that came out of 911....how come there are no memorials for all the innocent dead regardless of where they are from.
People of America died over it.
People of Afghanistan died over it.
People of Iraq died over it.
Military from my country have died over this as well.

Etc etc etc.....

ALOT of innocent people have died over this,its not just firefighters and police and military from the US.
People from many countries died over this,yet I am supposed to only think about the American casualties from that one day and not the aftermath that followed which killed alot more people then 911 did???
I'll be lighting a candle for ALL the innocent who died because of 911.....screw the media.

It would be nice to allow the families of the victims to remember their passed loved ones without the media getting involved.
We are way past due on this. Its been ten years for heavens sakes. Now the media is just pandering to those that are entertained by tragedy. Its only human to be curious of tragedy, but for the media to try and profit from it so much, yes that is sickening and Im sick of it.

Well said...

Not only were 3000 people killed that day... More like hundreds of thousands because of, and since that day...

I do feel bad for the firefighters who risked their lives, and are now dying a slow death because of it

While I feel we make too much of many past events such as roadside deaths, 911 is different.

It was a world changing event.

Just think, its only the 9th


We will be bombarded with that terrible terrible day...for the next three days!!

An unfortunate day for America and Bush and Cheneys' opening act.

I feel bitter and sick.

'Nuff said.

You are correct, but where does the media get the idea that the victim's family want to relive the event over again just so they can make a fancy 4 hour "memorial" documentary of 9/11, or paste it all over the web and radio for them to soak in?

I think this is going too far!

On a local news broadcast here in the LA area, a newscaster made a comment like, "the president is asking us [the media] to [make a big deal] of the 9-11 anniversary. I'll be going to a conference later in the day". It came out something like that, so it's orders from headquarters. And I'm sure they will be pushing some agendas "to help keep us safer" in the wake of this hype.

The media is putting way too much hype into it. I suppose they don't have much to report on, though, so going on about 9/11 makes their jobs easier.

I was sick of it a week ago, when they first started to talk about it being the 10th anniversary. I swear I head them talking about it in August, which was just all kinds of wrong, in my opinion. I can understand talking about it starting today, and then continuing until maybe the 12th, but this is just getting ridiculous. I can't imagine how the families that lost loved ones feel. You'd have to basically turn off the TV and radio to get away from it. I wouldn't want more than a week of that reminder.

Absolutely Agree with you 100%. The media is making it into a big deal and drawing more attention to it then ever before. 9/11/11 is going to fall on a Sunday so hopefully they take their happy butts to church or go enjoy the last rays of sunshine before winter hits.........I think they are trying to start a frenzy because although they do talk about it every year at this time it does seem a little excessive.

MOST Americans such as myself are to busy going to work everyday working hard to put food on our families plate as well as giving the government plenty of money from our paychecks so that can continue to go to fancy hotels and eat in fancy restaurants while they continue to put into law things I don't agree with.

SICK OF IT is an understatement

I just want to add my perspective to this thread by saying that I am not bothered by the coverage. In fact, depending on the direction the coverage takes, I'm glad to have it. Once a year I've taken some time to break out my archives of 9/11 recordings, re-mix tribute songs and public event tapes from the days a weeks following what happened. The rest of the year, I generally keep the whole event in a small compartment in the back of my mind, but it's allowed out for the next couple days.

I know as more and more people come of age who view this as strictly a historical event, the deep meaning that day holds for so many of us will be lost. Until then though, I applaud the coverage that is generally focused on the memorial aspect.

Speaking of coverage though, there is one victim of the 9/11 attacks they never mention. I don't mean to sound goofy, but it's the sense of innocence America had right up to that morning. My parents would tell me growing up that America lost it's innocence on a sunny day in Dallas, but I didn't live through that. I did live through 9/11 and I believe we still had a great deal of innocence left as a nation through the Clinton years.

When I watch my memorial video collection this weekend and listen to the songs I've carefully collected over the years, the occasional tear is as much for that last victim as for the thousands of my fellow Americans and others who died that day, for absolutely nothing.

Just ignore me if these sentiments seem stupid. I felt I had to add my perspective though...thanks for the thread which gave me a place to do it.
