Below is today's email to my friend and colleague Jonathan Elinoff, in answer to his defense of Amy Goodman, who had been attacked in a We Are Change Colorado video. (My own confrontation with Amy Goodman)
Always great to hear from you!
I can't judge the Amy G video without a url -- checked the first couple pages of wearechangecolorado.org and didn't see it.
>I wouldn't care so much but, Amy Goodman has never done anything wrong to us.
She witnessed the controlled demolition of WTC-7 and, despite being an alleged "alternative journalist," never reported on it, or on the rest of the story of the century. She then accepted a large grant from the CIA appendage Ford Foundation to "report on the aftermath of 9/11" which may explain her continuing failure to do her job. I believe she has only broached the subject of 9/11 truth twice on her show, in both cases setting up the truth advocates for ambushes by skilled professional liars. She repeatedly references the grotesquely absurd official fairy tale of 9/11 as if it were unquestioned truth, thereby reinforcing the big lie and promoting its murderous effects. Her rare, utterly ineffectual bleats of "I support a new investigation" hardly excuse her failure to do her job, which (along with a few other journalists doing their job) would have prevented millions of deaths.
Since 9/11 was among other things an incitement to genocide, and more than a million Muslims have already been exterminated as part of the continuing slow-motion long-term genocide, I believe journalists who should reasonably have been expected to report honestly on 9/11 and failed to do so ought to be tried for crimes against humanity following the Nuremburg precedent. These journalists and their bosses should be held personally responsible for the deaths of more than one million people, and the likely future deaths of tens if not hundreds of millions more. (It will be a miracle if we emerge from the 9/11-triggered "war of civilizations" without hundreds of millions of casualties.) So if there is a reason why Amy "I ran from the WTC-7 demolition" Goodman should not join thousands of other journalists and media moguls in the docket, I would like to hear it.
