Fox news is the only national press at Pentagon ceremony
me | 9/11/13 | me

Posted on 09/11/2013 6:57:30 AM PDT by bigtoona

Just heard the fox reporter say that she looked to her left and right and she was the only big network covering the Pentagon ceremony. Obama also skipped the moment of silence apparently.


TOPICS: News/Current Events; US: Virginia
KEYWORDS: 911; 911anniversary; foxnews; newsblackout; pentagon
Normally he flees our country on meaningful holidays, wish he was in Hawaii instead of soiling our day of remembrance.

This being 9-11 I went to the NYT site to see their front page. Not a word about the 9-11 anniversary. Guess they forgot.

Disgusting POS...

No I didn’t spell POTUS incorrectly. Just removed the appropriate letters
to reflect his real title.

Have We Forgotten?
Darryl Worley/Wynn Varble, 2003

I hear people saying we don’t need this war
I say there’s some things worth fighting for
What about our freedom and this piece of ground?
We didn’t get to keep ‘em by backing down
They say we don’t realize the mess we’re getting in
Before you start preaching
Let me ask you this my friend

CHORUS 1
Have you forgotten how it felt that day
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away?
Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside
Going through a living hell
And you say we shouldn’t worry ‘bout Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

They took all the footage off my T.V.
Said it’s too disturbing for you and me
It’ll just breed anger that’s what the experts say
If it was up to me I’d show it every day
Some say this country’s just out looking for a fight
After 9/11 man I’d have to say that’s right

CHORUS 1
Have you forgotten how it felt that day
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away?
Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside
Going through a living hell
And you say we shouldn’t worry ‘bout Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

I’ve been there with the soldiers
Who’ve gone away to war
And you can bet they remember
Just what they’re fighting for

CHORUS 2
Have you forgotten all the people killed?
Some went down like heroes in that Pennsylvania field
Have you forgotten about our Pentagon?
All the loved ones that we lost
And those left to carry on
Don’t you tell me not to worry about Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten?
Have you forgotten?

Obama had a moment of silence with the First Scold, Vice President Shotgun, and Dr Jill Abortion.

The entire leftist establishment, the major media, the democrat party, and the ruling president all hate this country and hate the remembrance of 9/11 because think we deserved it.

Fox is the ONLY network that paid homage to the tragedy
and they did it very well and respectfully

They showed a live spot at the WH
All POS, 0dumbo moochelle biden and whatever her name is walked out 20 yds. pretended to care as our National anthem played. pretended to care in a moment of silence
then turned around and left

I so fervently HATE depise and loathe those people

NSA did you get that?

I think a good tribute would be to have a channel play a 24 hour loop of the planes hitting the towers and shots of the pentagon burning. The press and the government want cloud who are enemies truly are.

Incredible. Obama has done everything possible to make the world forget 9/11. The only thing I’m surprised about is that he hasn’t declared it a day to honor Islam.

I went to mass this morning very afraid, because the liberal clergy in my church always say something stupid, but fortunately today the priest restrained himself and was actually pretty good. However, it was as if 9/11 had been an earthquake or some other natural phenomenon (a “tragedy”) and not a hostile attack by an evil force that was spawned by Satan himself, the father of lies and division, who is the source of Islam.

Until we confront Islam, we’ll never be able to deal with 9/11. But now we have a Muslim - or a Muslim fellow-traveler - in the White House, so what is to be expected?

I did hear the POS refer to today as a "Day of Service" - typical community organizer.....

I truly believe 911 was orchestrated by the elite and Saudis to get us into a war with Iraq in order to have control over their oil. There is just too much information about the buildings collapsing the way they did. I do honor the firemen and police that paid an enormous price to try to save the people and I am very sorry for the people that died in 911. To remember is to seek the truth. I hope I am wrong. I consider the Bushes to be a part of the elite. Many of the conspirator theories are found to be true but that does not stop people from mocking anyone that does not think as they are told.

Why do you suffer a liberal priest? Do you have no other choice?

As to the “tragedy”, it’s not just the priest. That is 1 of my many pet peeves, and the #1 regarding 9-11. Every single person in media or what have you says “tragic” and “tragedy” - yes, that includes FOX personnel.

Tell people it is NOT just a “tragedy”, as Katrina, it was an ATROCITY. Atrocious acts perpetrated deliberately by other evil humans on humans.

I didn’t cry when I first found out about this horrid event 12 years about now. I knew it was an atrocity instinctively. I was ANGRY because it was atrocious, not just some natural event.

Nonsense.

Iraq is a drop in the bucket of oil that we even ever purchased.

This is why the media is not interested in covering 911.

Don’t believe this garbage. I’ve seen so many shows on 9/11 and not 1 of them indicates any ridiculous idea of subterfuge. Never mind as an engineer, I learn the best and most likely answer is the easiest answer. Conspiracy theories for this kind of thing require ENORMOUS coordination and agreement by thousands upon thousands of people. Ridiculous.

I went to Mass today. Had put in the intention for our dear friend who was killed in the Cantor- Fitzgerald offices.

When the deacon read his name he kind of stopped and looked up and said ‘in memory of 9/11’, looking around.

And I nodded. People appreciate the reminder, it seems.

I always find Mass the best thing to do on this day. Friends and colleagues do whatever they can do to assist in getting me there.

The reverence is inspiring

It is indeed NOT a TRAGEDY!

There, I’m yelling

It was and is an atrocity

Tragedy implies this was a necessary act for those with whom we should sympathize as we must be ashamed for our successes or whatever dopey anti American sentiment they have and it’s a tragedy all those innocent people had to die out of necessity

Atrocity means we were attacked and all those innocent people died in an act of war upon them

Liberal priests are all we have here, although actually, they’re a lot less nutty than some of those suffered by folks in other parts of the country. Most of them are just tired old liberals who haven’t thought about the meaning of a thing they have spouted for the last 40 years.

And yes, you’re right, it was an atrocity. I become infuriated too when they call it a “tragedy.”
