the news filtering through to the Land of Oz concerning your activities
continues to be less than inspiring. We hear that the delightful Rosie
O'Donnell was attacked left right and center for two weeks solid by
"such corporate media establishment hacks as Bill O'Reily, Joe
Scarborough and Danny Bonaduce who seriously called for her to be
executed". Pharr out. Things certainly seem to be degenerating
fast in the Land of the Phreeee.
And for why, Bill? For why? Simply, it seems, because Rosie continues
to insist upon her first amendment right to freedom of speech. In
particular, speech concerning the events of 911 (or 'IXXI' as we internet
users know it). What's wrong with talking about something as unexceptionable
as IXXI, Bill? Most sensible people in Oz, and indeed all across the
globe, know that it was orchestrated by a lot more than a diabetic
in a cave with or without a mobile and a bunch of Muslim patsies having
attended flight training on Cesnas. Bill, who do you think you're
fooling? Put it another way ... who do you think you're protecting?
Even on a bad day, it seems, Rosie can do a lot better ratings-wise
than your own reputedly "failing Fox News show". Apparently
the ABC's The View averages over twice as many viewers as yours,
reaching a total of around 30 million viewers per show. Apparently
the uproar last month came about after Rosie had a rant to those 30
million viewers about the many questions surrounding the collapse
of Building 7. Much to the displeasure of those involved with the
production of The View whom Rosie describes as "Neocon
How utterly absurd. I mean, even John Kerry (at Book People
in Austin, TX April 22, 2007) says that he is open to looking at evidence
supporting the views put forward by professor Steven Jones and his
controlled demolition findings on the 911 attacks. Why, even the owner,
Lazza Silverstein, reckoned in one statement that WTC7 had been "pulled".
To that Kerry responded that "they made a decision based on the
danger, that it had of destroying other things that they did
it in a controlled fashion". So you see, Bill, there's nothing
even particularly controversial about the idea that WTC7 at least,
was deliberately demolished. The only remaining question is ... when
and how did they plant the explosives and who did so?
Bill, would you describe yourself as a "neocon gate-keeper"?
Or for that matter as an "America hater" as the article
below would have it?
Yours for truth-telling in public broadcasting.
P.S. Bill, I do hope that you don't find yourself in the unhappy position
of famed news anchor Dan Rather. Several months after 9/11, apparently,
Dan told the BBC: "There was a time in South Africa that people
would put flaming tires around peoples' necks if they dissented. And
in some ways the fear is that you will be necklaced here, you will
have a flaming tire of lack of patriotism put around your neck. Now
it is that fear that keeps journalists from asking the toughest of
the tough questions ... What we are talking about here whether
one wants to recognise it or not, or call it by its proper name or
not is a form of self-censorship."
