The BBC has been in the middle of a blogger firestorm the last couple days after clear and incontrovertible evidence appeared, showing that the Beeb had reported the collapse of the Salomon Brothers Building — better known as World Trade Center 7before it actually collapsed! Check out the screen grab below (I’ve circled WTC7):

The BBC engaged in some quick (and pathetic) damage control but failed to calm the boiling outrage erupting around the world. In so doing they revealed that they’ve lost all of their tapes from 9/11 and doefully ask somebody to send them a copy, plz. (I’m not fucking kidding. Check the link):

We no longer have the original tapes of our 9/11 coverage (for reasons of cock-up, not conspiracy). So if someone has got a recording of our output, I’d love to get hold of it.

I don’t even know where to begin.

Okay, Beeb… so you’re telling me that nobody fucking bothered to save or secure any of the tapes from an entire day of broadcasting — a day that, even for the Brits, would have to rank as one of the most important in a generation at least, and then you meekly ask for a copy as if it’s our job?! What the hell?! Then you claim incompetence (just like the Bush regime)?! Well, your excuse is so fucking pathetic I’m inclined to agree that you are a bunch of morons.

Do you believe them? I don’t. This is bullshit. I’m starting to think that the BBC, and all the other major news organs, are in fact part of the conspiracy — after the fact.

So how did the Beeb get the news that the WTC7 building was about to collapse? Well, that certainly could be fairly innocent on their part. If a “trusted source” informed them of the collapse, they would be inclined to report it, and not bothering to check and see that the building is still standing does reek of incompetence. However, they seem quite competent at getting videos removed from YouTube and GoogleVideo. Strange for a news organization that was supposedly trying to get their tapes back.

I managed to find a clip on YouTube that hasn’t been taken down yet. It’s got a full 25 minutes of the BBC’s feed from 9/11, so you’ll have to fast forward ahead to the 15 minute mark to see the footage in question.

What are we to make of all this? Well, I think that’s pretty obvious. The corporate-controlled media is lying to us. Every day, with every breath, and every death in Iraq or from the growing numbers of dead or dying first respondersthey’re lying to us. They know which way the evidence points, and they’re doing everything they can to cover it up. After the BBC’s litany of pathetic excuses they had the gall to mock those of us who question the official story:

If we reported the building had collapsed before it had done so, it would have been an error – no more than that. As one of the comments on You Tube says today “so the guy in the studio didn’t quite know what was going on? Woah, that totally proves conspiracy… “

So they’re not only mocking those of us genuinely concerned about the events of 9/11 (if we don’t learn what really happened, how can we prevent another one?), they’ve sunken so low they’re using a Bush regime apologist’s anonymous comments on YouTube to make their case. FUCKING PATHETIC.

What’s even more intriguing is how the BBC flak, Richard Porter, seems more interested in carrying water for the Bush regime than he does in showing his news organization as a competent and trustworthy news source. In fact, he goes out of his way to make the BBC appear utterly incompetent — no doubt because it helps the Bush regime with their own claims of incompetence rather than malfeasance. Instead of acknowledging legitimate questions about that fateful day he does all he can to back up the official story (which, by the way, is a conspiracy theory no matter how you slice it). I say again: FUCKING PATHETIC.

That’s it. You’re done, Beeb. I had you in my bookmarks, but you’re gone now. You’re fucking gone. You are nothing more than an agent of evil to me now. I will give you the same amount of trust I give the Bush regime — less than zero.

I’m calling for a BOYCOTT, folks. We can’t let our media LIE to us and get away with it. Going back to them and reading their deception-stained news would be like an abused wife going back to her drunked and violent husband. Enough!

What’s the number one thing a news organization is supposed to do? Tell the truth, right? When a news outlet refuses to do that, what good are they? They’re about as useful as a knife in the eye. They’re about as helpful as gonorrhea.

I’m calling for a boycott until such time as the BBC fires that arrogant, pandering fuckhead, Richard Porter, head editor of world news… AND launches a full and impartial investigation into the tragic events of 9/11 — giving all theories equal credence until the evidence makes clear which is most likely. And not a trashy hit-piece like that Conspiracy Files piece of shit (which was debunked about 5 minutes after it aired).

It really pains me to do this. The BBC has a lot of quality programming and some of their shows have really hit hard and exposed lies and crimes in government. However, they are tainted meat to me now. I can’t eat the rest of it just because it looks okay — how do I really know? Trust is such a fragile thing, and getting it back after losing it is not easy. Good luck, BBC. I hope you do the right thing.

    I posted this story over at NowPublic and some people had questions about this story. I tried to clarify as best I could. The response I wrote up might help shed further light for those of you reading this. Here it is, reposted:_______Well, it is a massively complex story, but I will try to do a quick summary version, which will no doubt omit a lot of important details, but most of those can be found in the links on the main post. Here goes:I’m not clear on who first noticed this, but it appears that ONE person did the research and uploaded the BBC video, which immediately set off a firestorm that has engulfed the web. Here’s the earliest article I can find on the story:http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=20519 I found a video that’s still up (hopefully it will stay that way) which shows the BBC reporter talking about the collapse even as the building is standing in the background (it’s to the right, a big 47-story sky scraper shaped like a squatter version of the 2 towers):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7SwOT29gbc The original video was taken down pretty quickly (which is suspicious in and of itself), but it still managed to spread. Soon somebody found a CNN clip that showed the same thing.The BBC felt compelled to respond, and dispatched Richard Porter to do the dirty work. He basically used the “we’re complete morons” defense. But then he mocked 9/11 Truth activists for saying the Beeb was part of the conspiracy. But if he and his organization are a bunch of morons, how do they know who’s right in that contentious debate? Anyway, here’s the official (or so it appears) response from the BBC:http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/theeditors/2007/02/part_of_the_conspiracy.htmlFar from mollifying people, this sent many (including me) into a tizzy. The hypocrisy is just too great. On one hand they’re asking for copies of THEIR footage back, but on the other hand they’re furiously taking that very content down from places like GoogleVideo and YouTube.The takedowns, combined with efforts to get social media (like Digg) to carry the story (since we all know the corporate press doesn’t want to talk about this) set off another firestorm. The so-called “Bury Brigade” on Digg was blamed for burying several 9/11-related articles, including articles relating to this story. More on the Bury Brigade here:http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/march2007/020307burybrigade.htmNow it appears (just noticed this) that the BBC has responded again! Richard Porter again tries to put out the fire, ending his post with a hectoring “There’s no story here.” This guy sounds desperate and scared.http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/theeditors/2007/03/part_of_the_conspiracy_2.html But this story is about much more than the BBC and the egg on their face. Bloggers and 9/11 Truthers everywhere are looking at the larger picture, which is — what really happened on 9/11? This is just one more piece of evidence that things are not what they seem. I won’t go over all of that here (this summary is longer than I thought already!), but suffice it to say that whole books have been written about it — Michael C. Ruppert’s Crossing the Rubicon being very notable, as well as Webster Griffin Tarpley’s 9/11: Synthetic Terror, Made in the USA. YouTube has also been invaluable in shedding light on the coverup. I like to look at a YouTube user named Halifaxion’s page to learn more. He’s got 166 videos up and most of them deal with 9/11. Amazing resource.Hopefully this helps to clear things up a bit. Let me know if you want to know more.

    Hey guys,Very interesting…slightly off topic, and far less important I realise, but in case anyone was in doubt that “good old Auntie Beeb” (the BBC) is a draconian tyrant, I have 2 words for you: Television Licence.In case you weren’t aware, everyone in the UK needs a licence to watch received broadcasts. Not just BBC broadcasts, but ANY broadcasts. The agency designated to pursue this revenue is a bunch of UTTER scum known as Capita Ltd. They are basically a licenced gang of thugs contracted by the BBC to ‘vigorously’ pursue anyone they suspect of the heinous crime of living in a property where there MIGHT be a TV.Whole bibles have been written in the UK about this Stazi-like clique, check the web.The BBC is home to many, many fine artists, reporters,etc. But their anachronistic reputation for integrity has been history for quite a while now.
