The History Channels slanted "viewpoint" of the 9-11 tragedy is on now. DISPICABLE.
History Channel | Iam1ru12

Posted on 09/11/2005 1:39:12 PM PDT by Iam1ru1-2

The History channel is regirgitating a slanted viewpoint of the 9-11 terrorist attack on America. A coverage that the DNC would be proud to endorse. I wrote them an email just before this posting:

Your programming of the events of 9-11 is dispicably slanted to the extreme left. It's as if the Democratic National Committee made this footage in preparing for the upcoming national elections by denigrating the President of the United States, placing in your interviews known extreme leftest, liberal wackos on this disgusting program. I will let the whitehouse, and news stations of this dispicable anti-Bush slanted coverage of the 911 disaster and will show them this slanted coverage of 9-11 to all my friends and relatives so that they will know what kind of "history" you people really want to report. The leftwing, licentious, ludicrous, luciferian, lying, liberal view of all of our history. I for one will NEVER AGAIN WATCH THIS CHANNEL BECAUSE OF IT'S BIASED, SLANTED, LYING, VIEW OF YOUR SO-CALLED "REPORTING" OF HISTORY. YOU MAKE ME SICK!!!!!!!!

Now you know why I tend to write to those who advertise on the History Channel, informing them of which products/services of theirs I will no longer be using.

You may as well have taken a piss in the ocean. They don't care what the hell you think and to them, you are wrong. History is written by those in power which scares me because this means five years of Bush has done little to get the truth out or even change the history books our kids read. That should have been the main topic of the education bill. Anyway, the left controls all the television stations except for some Christian broadcasters. They set the agenda and push the pop culture every day and they try to wear us down one by one.

With the History Channel you have to sift the wheat fon the chaff. All in all it did not put the Klintoon Admin in a good light either. And yes I watched it all. O and the History Channel is owned by the MSM(ABC I think).

I no longer take the History channel seriously. They tried to draw equivalence between Clinton's sexual harrassment / sexual discrimination / perjury and some Roman Emperor who was unseated due to "frivolous" moral concerns.

Makes me wonder how much of history is BS. Hell, the "historians" on that channel can't even get the last decade right. LOL.

Pay close attention to the construction of the WTC. It goes a long way into debunking a lot of leftist theories about the inside job.

Not to be nit-picky but, what just happened in New Orleans was a "tragedy"....9-11 was an "attack".

I found the 9-11 documentaries on National Geographic Channel as being honest and just outstanding. I was definitely surprised. I think they were called "Inside 911."

They mentioned Able Danger in "The Cell from Hamburgh" last night. Just two lines though.

This is a knee-jerk reaction; the History Channel beats the hell out of just about anything on NBC, ABC, CBS. History has always been written by the winners, so instead of whining about what you don't like, why don't you provide specific rebuttals of what you do not think are "facts?" Hysteria, and declarations of Christian broadcasting "accuracy" do nothing for the discussion except make you appear to be a disgruntled loser.

"History is written by those in power which scares me because this means five years of Bush has done little to get the truth out or even change the history books our kids read."

This may seem a little odd, but I frequent used book store, library sales and such gathering up old text books and history books from before 1950. It is a wealth of information I used with my kids to give them a balanced view of history. These books will be saved for grandchildren.

My kids could scarcely believe I got Columbus Day off from school and he was considered a hero. I have one book which actually states he viewed his journey as a missions trip to spread the Word of God.

Your comments tell me where you're coming from. If the history channel, in YOUR opinion, are "winners" then that tells me that you are a "LOSER".

Sienfeld was a sitcom dubbed as a show about nothing. Much like this post.
I see you act like a Democrat when you get angry. Why don't you instead post some details. I guess you'd rather b!tch about it instead of produce some reasoning. Again, much like a Democrat.

There has been at least 12 hours of programming related to 9-11 on the History Channel today, and it's a mixed bag. I thought not all of it was bad. Late last night they had a detailed examination of the members of the Hamburg cell, which I thought was interesting. Threre was also an about 2-hour examination of Bin Laden's terror infrastructure in Afghanistan.

The program that may be raising your ire is the two-hour program on "The 9-11 Commission Report" which gives a big portion of its "talking head time" to Democratic commissioners, with predicable results. Because it is summarizing the 9-11 Commission report, it has all of the atrocious weaknesses of that document.

Other programming to think about is the "Inside 9-11" series by National Geographic which appeared only a few weeks ago. I only saw a little bit of that (I think it's something like 3 hours), but I was startled by some of the apparently new info in there (they may have mentioned Able Danger). There is also an upcoming dramatization called "The Flight that Fought Back" on the Discovery channel which talks about events leading up to the crash of the plane in Pennsylvania.

I think there is good stuff on the History channel, but you have to use your brain in evaluating their material. Best of luck.

Ooops ... my mistake, and apologies. A knee-jerk reaction on my part. Just that I live in near NYC and every day there is always some new controversy over the rebuilding of Ground Zero, the latest being this disgraceful IFC [International Freedom Center], which purports to tell the story of America's history, but in actuality turns out to be a Bash-America exhibit. Meanwhile the politicos dither and argue over what will eventually be built on the site .......
With all that going on, perhaps it would be best to just leave it as a gigantic hole in the ground ... probably more striking and shocking to reality than anything that could ever be rebuilt there ... /rant off

Discovery channel program on reasons the towers fell as quickly as they did yesterday was outstanding.

They provided detailed analysis from structural engineers who worked on the building and even displayed the original architecture documents. The WTC towers weren't constructed using standard building practices at the time.
They did a lot of unorthodox things to make the project work.

What many believe now is that the trus system that they used to construct the floors was easily compromised by the impact of the jet and fire. An MIT professor did a demonstration using a model. Showed how if any area of the trus system didn't have fire protection as the fire burned, it would weaken greatly. They used this trus system because a lot of the prefab could be done on the ground and the sections of flooring put into place by cranes. They also used this system because due to the elevator system implemented, the trus system allowed much more open floor space on each floor.

They also showed how the stairways were built too close to each other and provided no redunancy and thats why all the people above where the planes impacted couldn't get out.
This design is considered a major no-no by todays standards.

Sorry, I did not mean to call you a Loser...I simply said that kind of response was indicative of the response one might expect from someone who doesn't have credibility because facts are not the basis of a disgruntled, shrill posting.

The History Channel is simply a successful business enterprise. They need people like you to galvanize their position with those (majority) people who are interested in forming their opinions based on facts.

Until I watched those shows on National Geographic, I didn't know that much information was available about the murderers who skyjacked the planes on 9-11 and murdered those people. I thought I already knew all that there was to know about 9-11. Those shows on NGC took me to school.

What is eating at him is the evading, lying, terrible reporting intentionally of the 9-11 show he was watching, I was outraged in less than 6 minutes or so while I was working on the computer on this site yesterday when my husband turned it there and was listening (had no choice since I have dial-up and PC is situated in the open room where TV is and unlike dem's can do more than one thing at a time) and I came unglued in less than 6 minutes...they had on Brookings institute guy, CNN guy always on that wrote a book about al queda so called expert, and someone else I can't think of right now before I said if you do not turn that I am going to shoot the T.V. set and meant it...I gave up a long time ago on the History Channel, I do watch a few and of course u have to sort the wheat from the chafe, but this was unbearable, purposely...all dem's talking points. For people who have not read about the whole thing through tons of books, long before Bush was Pres. they would know no difference, that is what they count on. Sadly there are too many!

By the way I know these peoples names by heart but have a mind blank at the moment of their names, they are pure socialists putting it politely. If I could only stand 6 minutes of it and told my husband to turn it which I never do...I was furious, my husband knows I know alot of what I speak cuz I fill him in...he gets very angry at the History Channel too on other subjects so there you go! It was terrible, and enough to make anyone mad that is truly up on politics.

By the way I think, not sure Ted Turner used to have something to do with the History channel, could be wrong.

This may seem a little odd, but I frequent used book store, library sales and such gathering up old text books and history books from before 1950.

I do too! Thrift stores are also great sources of QUALITY books for pennies.

I found the leather-bound Harvard Classics for $2.95 a piece and the leather-bound Complete Works of Shakespeare for $10.95.

I also found Eisenhower's "Crusade in Europe" for a buck. It is the perfect compliment to my "Pictoral History of WWII", which actually started publishing volumes during the war.

I learned to find books in thrift stores from the late Fr. Pete, a German priest who worked at the library at Notre Dame, and would winter at our parish in Arizona.
