9/11: S.F. Chronicle Takes The Low Road
The latest 9/11 hit piece, this time issued by one Cinnamon Stillwell, writing for the San Francisco Chronicle, has gone just a bit too far out of the realm of respectable journalism. In fact, it told an outrageous lie, for which the Chron has been forced to issue this retraction:
"Cinnamon Stillwell's column Wednesday on SFGate originally stated that images of the plane that struck the Pentagon had been seen by the American public. No such images have been made public."
I'm sorry to see my hometown newspaper sink so low as to allow a no-nothing hack like Cinnamon Stillwell to publish such nonsense. It's obvious what demographic is being targeted here- the SUV-driving, latte-sipping professionals who are not yet clued into what happened on 9/11, and aren't likely to be anytime soon. Much like Betsy Hart, the Suzy Homemaker of FOX, Cinnamon Stillwell is reaching out to her right-wing yuppie bretheren, but has dropped the ball on her toes. The Chronicle was besieged with e-mails and letters, demanding a retraction of her obvious and deliberate falsehood. It may have gone right over the heads of Muffy and Buffy, but, not so for those who are paying attention.
Doesn't this all point to the fact that the 9/11 truth movement is now speaking to a majority? That the mainstream media has to rely on the most dumbed-down of their ranks to bolster the 9/11 cover-up for the remaining drones speaks volumes as to how far the movement has come. Had Ed Asner made it onto CNN as planned, the subsequent duck-and-cover would have been something to behold.
The group Scholars For 9/11 Truth have been putting out solid, well-researched information. Where are the scholars who would de-bunk this information? Cinnamon Stillwell and Betsy Hart are about as scholarly as Paris Hilton, and their brand of Stepford Wife karaoke journalism is to be discarded in the dumpsters of our junk culture. Those two, and any others of their ilk, should stick to writing about sailboats, puppies, and poinsettias, and leave the serious topics to the big people.
