Dear Coast,

I’m a long time reader and fan of not just The Coast, but many of its staff. I love and appreciate all you do and have done 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.

The article seemed to me to be a shameful attempt to discredit the burgeoning 9/11 Truth movement.

To be clear, I’m not interested in defending the article’s thuggishly assassinated main character, poor Mr. Deagle, (no wonder he refused to be interviewed, Mr. Kimber exhibiting his penchant for resorting to baseball bats where fly-swatters would do). I am however, interested in the role of the media in influencing the court of public opinion and in the fair and accurate portrayal of a steadily growing grassroots movement, which was ridiculed by association in Mr. Kimber’s article.

My point is simply that the mainstream media in North America, owned by a handful of individuals/corporate entities, has been shamefully complicit in the cover-up of the events of 9/11, 2001. Evidence of this literally abounds on the net, but two small examples are the wall-to-wall 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, not hit by a plane, later in the afternoon.

I invite your readers to simply consider where Mr. Kimber’s loyalties may or may not lie, before going along with his presumed objectivity in mocking a rapidly growing organization that is asking legitimate and extremely pointed questions. The degree to which journalists like Mr. Kimber go to discredit such organizations, at the behest of their corporate masters one can only presume, is a clear indication of just how desperate those masters are becoming.

I also invite any readers who may have questions or doubts of their own to not be deterred by last weeks article and to look into the literally countless unanswered questions surrounding 911 for themselves. I am in the architectural profession, and can recommend “Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth” as an excellent website to begin or further ones inquiry.
