YOU'LL SEE THIS ONCE (9/11 Coverage)
New York Post ^ | 8/23/02 | MICHAEL STARR

Fox News says it will show this awful video only one time during anniversary coverage, and most networks are showing similar restraint.

August 23, 2002 -- They're the most horrible and infamous images of Sept. 11 - and you'll barely be seeing them on TV on the one-year anniversary.

I wonder if people really don't need to see this footage just so what happened isn't easily forgotten.

Memo to Big Networks:

The Internet has 4 aces and you hold 2 pair. Those images will not be forgotten.

Deal with it.

'member the first time you saw Joe Thiessmans leg go SNAP! ?

after the 300th time is wasn't so disturbing.

It needs to be shown more than once, but certainly not so often that everyone becomes jaded.

One rich guys leg breaking is NOT the same as 9/11...but too many already don't care...

The network ex's are the same ex's who make decisions for shows like: Phil Don-a-Pu

Willie, The Pervert, Klinton

What do you expect, something that makes sense?

Information managers. That is what they all are really. Not reporters, not news providers. Managers (little bureaucrats). Censorship. Propaganda. Managing images and words with the intention of manipulating our emotions -- for our own good, naturally.

They put an American-hater like Peter Jennings on every night. But the images that have changed this nation will be shown once, on one day.

I do hope there are a few threads going at FR on the eleventh, showing every photo taken that day.

Lets hope there are more sites like this. Also the Smithstoian may get involved the set up an historical libary.

They do but the Corporate Media 'news' outlets are trying to undercut the Presidents War on Terrorism. Showing images of 9/11 would stiffen too many spines and throw too much support to G. Bush and his plans to deal with Saddass and his ilk.

The main thing right now, for the liberal press, are the upcoming elections. Support for Bush translates into support for Republicans at the polls. Better another terror strike than that in the liberal 'mind'.

Your are absolutly correct. Bush's war on terriorism is too "conservative" for the liberal mindset!! The corporate news hounds would much rather let their women wear burkas than support a conservative! They are all traitors to this country!

They don't want to show the footage because it undercuts their touchy feely BS message that Islam is a religion of peace and we are somehow responsible for what happened that day.

I read an AP newspaper article about this yesterday. There are some images (such as people jumping from the Twin Towers and news footage of bodies laying in the streets around the Towers) that the cable and commercial networks claim they will never show to the American people, on the grounds that they are too "disturbing". Yet this same footage was shown openly on European television.

Surely these images continue to exist in archives _somewhere_. I would like to see an independent (i.e., non-news) effort to obtain and collect this "forbidden footage", perhaps compiling it into one or more videos that could be privately purchased through the Internet.

If this happens, before long the networks will no longer be able to "keep these images in the can". And they may decide that the American people finally should be shown what really occurred on that awful day.

Sometimes the "raw truth" hurts terribly. But it is essential that Americans -- in order to come to the realization of the power of the enemy we face -- see the impact of September 11th with all its horror.

Will we have to wait until a nuclear device explodes in Manhattan before we face that reality?

Cheers!
- John

The unsightly patriotism that sprang up after 9-11 was a much more horrible event to our commie news media than the actual destruction of the WTC and Pentagon itself. God forbid that they should be responsible for renewing those pro-American emotions by showing the destruction again.

These images need to be seen again to strengthen resolve so that people will not forget. Unfortunately too many people have forgotten and we have begun the slide down the path of liberalism once again.

Show these images of 9/11 24/7 in order to infuriate the American public and kill the liberal soft mindset of this country. Ideas have consequences and these images are the consequences of radical Islam and poor protectionist policies of the democrats.

".... said Thom Bird, senior producer at Fox News Channel. "The images of the planes hitting the buildings are the most powerful images related to that day."

That is precisely why they should be shown throughout the day and throughout the year. In the space of a few minutes thousands of innocent civilians were murdered and we must never allow those images to fade or soften. IMHO the moment of impact, the faces of the 19 murders and Osama, the smoking pile of rubble are as critical to a 9-11 memorial as remembering those who were lost.

Perhaps they should show the poor folks who were forced to jump to avoid burning to death. Frankly, I think we should show this and I HOPE Americans get inflamed.

I know i'll be accused of morbidness and obsessiveness; dwelling on the tragedy of the past, but it was a stinkin' crime that they stopped showing this last year so soon after the attacks.

The excuses of not traumatising the kids are crap. Don't let the kids watch.

I was (not looking forward) but hoping to see a compendium of all the video shot that day. Guess I'll have to be satisfied with the specials run around the New Year.

Maybe the Spanish channels will give more accurate pictures.

This should be shown ad infitum every time we get some bozo apologist on the airwaves.

I'm going to email fox news and tell them to show all the footage, especially the stuff they didn't show on the day of the attack. I guess I'll just start hitting email addresses, starting with Bill O'Reilly.

If that happens, they'll hide the pictures with even more determination.

Just think how that our news is dominated by "normalcy"-- corporate crooks; a prescription drug benefit for seniors; etc.

The media have done a great job of giving us collective amnesia.

"There have been thoughtful conversations among our [news] executives as to what will take place before those images are inserted into any taped pieces," Gollust said.

Those images do not BELONG to you. They belong to the American people and their progeny.

How dare you assume otherwise.

I don't think showing it once an hour for one day is going to jade anybody. The KIDS need to see this.

I do not know how to use HTML to attach pictures on this site - or any other site, for that matter. But I know there are plenty of you who do.

How about someone puts a big picture of the planes rammed into the buildings. And then send the thread to every one you know - liberal and conservative. When they click on the link, the pictures will be the first thing seen. The thread can also be sent to news stations. If it is too dangerous to send on FreeRepublic and could get JimRob in trouble, how about we do it from our machines at home?
