"Reporters will not report
their own insights or contrary evaluations of the official 9/11
story, because to question the government story about 9/11 is
to question the very foundations of our entire modern belief system
regarding our government, our country, and our way of life. To
be charged with questioning these foundations is far more serious

government-service, or literary career. To question the official
9/11 story is simply and fundamentally revolutionary."

"The Washington press corps
has grown closer and closer to its sources. You find these relationships
are so close that reporters don't challenge the subjects of their
stories, they just tell you what the government is saying. In
other words, they've become stenographers for power and not journalists."
" The U.S. news media,
including our most respected newspapers like the New York Times,
turn a blind eye to U.S. violations of core international law,
having no qualms about playing up the violations of adversaries.
It would be nearly impossible for the coverage to be more unprincipled."
