CNN Fears 911 Truth - Cancels Ed Asner's Appearance
29 Mar 2006
author: someone

Infowars received an email from author and publisher Sander Hicks this afternoon indicating that the interview with Ed Asner scheduled for this evening on Showbiz Tonight has been cancelled. Hicks, a published author on the 9/11 cover-up as well as a Green Party senatorial candidate in New York was slated to appear with Asner on the program to discuss 9/11. Infowars confirmed with sources at CNN the segment was cancelled because another guest who had agreed to appear as an opposition voice to Hicks and Asner refused to participate the interview at the last moment. The CNN source further indicated that the opposition guest was none other than a former member of the Keene 9/11 whitewash Commission.
Further investigation and probing of several other CNN sources closely connected with the production of the Asner segment on Showbiz Tonight reported that high-level members of CNN management advised the producers of the show to "kill it. " This statement was clearly made to stifle any further coverage of 9/11 despite the admitedly huge ratings boost and response garnered from the recent coverage of Charlie Sheen's statements on 9/11.

"I guarantee that this member of the 9/11 Commission pulled out at the last moment because they think that by simply replying to Asner and Hicks and the comments of Charlie Sheen, he would be giving credence to their statements. This is a strategic move on their part to quash debate and avoid having to actually answer the hard questions about 9/11 which the 9/11 Commission failed to do. This stonewalling technique will not work forever - there are too many people waking up to their whitewash." - Alex Jones

Award winning actor, director, producer, and pioneering anti-Iraq war activist Ed Asner is scheduled to appear live on the CNN Headline News program Showbiz Tonight (6pm CST). Asner is reportedly going on to support Charlie Sheen's bold and brave stance calling for a real investigation of the events on September 11th, 2001 as well as to raise his own questions.

Also on Showbiz Tonight on March 27, actress Sharon Stone defended Sheen and his First Amendment right to speak out saying that he is brave and that it is important to confront authority.

Asner and Sheen are just two more of many celebrities who have already come forward to question the official story of what happened on 9/11.

Actor James Woods began questioning the official fable in the first weeks right after 9/11. X-Files and Lone Gunmen star Dean Haglund has already gone public on the Alex Jones Show (December 18, 2004) questioning the official story. Actor Ed Begley, Jr. hosted a 9/11 Truth Symposium in New York City several months ago.

And we have recently confirmed that one of the world's most popular and beloved musicians is awake to the truth about 9/11 and in the very near future may be going public.

Many more major stars who are considering going public have contacted us in recent days.

The dam is finally breaking. Delta Force Founder Eric Haney has spoken out in the press about the "War on Terrorism" being bogus and how there is no real threat to the United States. The 9/11 Truth Movemet has reached critical mass and is now exploding. The perpitrators of 9/11 have got to be concerned as more and more people across the globe wake up to the 9/11 hoax.

911 is the key 29.Mar.2006 09:43

When people wake up to 911, they will question the rest of it as well. The Iraq war is based on 911, so when you kick that rotten leg out from under it, that goes down as well. I see the exposure of 911 as the beginning of a widespread awakening. History will remember the Bush administration (and yes, the people behind the Bush administration) as the high water mark of tyranny.

It's important that people within the 911 truth movement not make enemies of themselves, denouncing one another as stooges and gatekeepers because they do not subscribe to some particular theory or perception of who the real perpetrators are.

Consider that the people within the media responsible for this mass deception are not so much evil as they are themselves deluded. Public acclaim and a fat paycheck can make the official story seem more plausible to some.

There can be a happy ending to this sordid saga. People will demand open government, free press and fair elections. Maybe America can become the kind of country they used to teach about in school and when kids give the pledge of allegiance it will mean something.

Ed Asner has proved himself time and again to be just another wacko from California. Did you people not see the airplanes crash into the twin towers, or was it all just a mind game?
Another troll post usurping the "@" name.

Looks like a lot of trolling is going on here. If these rightwingers had sex lives, they might be too busy to spew on IndyMedia.

CNN Stale News Is Worthless!

MSM is about as worthless as the Republicans.
Since 83% of Americans KNOW that the government was involved on 9-11! Forget CNN! Forget MSM. They are all failures of the First Amendment.
Just hope the major networks lose so much money that they sell their licenses back to us.
As for newspapers? They are losing subscribers by the droves. They'll be going under like this administration!
Suck that up! Neo lovers!

But the main question I have about the Sept. 11 conspiracy is -- why bother? We have a conspiracy to undermine the Constitution of the United States. It's in the papers; it requires no knowledge of engineering. We have a conspiracy to secretly spy on citizens of the United States. That's in the papers too. There was a conspiracy to steal the 2000 presidential election, a conspiracy that involved all three branches of government, and that's out there too.
We have plenty of conspiracies to worry about. We have a whole government that prefers to act in secret, that prefers to use conspiracy as its dominant tactical mode. These conspiracies have been pointed out, and distinguished men and women have risked their reputations to fight the imperial presidency, and so far: not much luck.
The country seems to be catching on, but that may not matter, because the electoral process has been so badly jimmied around that the party in power may remain the party in power no matter what. Or, equally plausibly, politicians follow the money, so we are being governed by plutocrats not very well hidden behind the curtain, so which political party wins does not make a difference. Or maybe it's not that hopeless. Don't know. Might be worth spending a lot of time thinking about it, instead of, you know, the other thing.
When the Franco-Prussian War broke out, Flaubert wrote: "Whatever happens, we shall remain stupid." Maybe; it would be pretty to think that something else might also be true.

It's hard to know what to believe; it's easier to know the subject areas in which we ought to be making inquiries about what to believe. It's all underbrush clearing, but it's a step.
