Whitewashing 9/11 truths 

To the editor,

I'm a long-time reader and fan of the The Coast and many of its staff. I appreciate all you do to bring a truly local perspective to the world of Haligonian print media, which is why I was disappointed in last week's Stephen Kimber article, "The prophet in Clayton Park" (September 6).

It seemed to me to be an attempt to discredit the burgeoning 9/11 truth movement.

I'm not interested in defending the article's thuggishly character-assassinated main character, Dr. Deagle. But I am interested in the media's role in influencing the court of public opinion, and in the accurate portrayal of a growing grassroots movement that was ridiculed by association in the article.

The mainstream media in North America, owned by a handful of individuals/corporatations, has been shamefully complicit in the cover-up of the events of 9/11. Evidence of this abounds on the net, but two small examples are the whitewash of reports of bombs or secondary devices in the building, by first responders, eyewitnesses and media representatives, and the conspicuous under-reporting of the stunning collapse of WTC 7, a 47-storey tower which was not hit by a plane.
