The system is still in a blind panic over the flimsy credibility of the government-approved fable

One look at your TV guide over the next 10 days will tell you everything you need to know about how petrified the establishment is over the flimsy credibility of the official 9/11 fable.
Naturally, the 10-year anniversary of the attacks would be expected to merit a deluge of media coverage, but what sticks out is the overbearing emphasis on countering so-called “conspiracy theories” about the events of that day, or in other words, reinforcing the official “conspiracy theory” that 19 poorly trained Arab hijackers were able to cripple America’s air defenses and make three giant steel-framed structures crumble to the ground at near free fall speed.
The BBC couldn’t even wait until the month of September itself to air their latest 9/11 truth hit piece earlier this week, and another is planned for next weekend. The damage done by the Building 7 fiasco, where BBC reporter Jane Standley is seen reporting the collapse of WTC 7 before it happens, a clip seen by millions, prompted the public broadcaster to launch a sustained dogmatic assault on anyone who dared question either 9/11 or 7/7.
Unfortunately for the BBC, the endless stream of smear attacks against so-called “conspiracy theorists” have largely backfired. Doctor Rory Ridley-Duff of Sheffield Hallam University conducted a study of the BBC’s “Conspiracy Files” documentary on 7/7 in comparison with the “conspiracy” documentary 7/7 Ripple Effect. His conclusion – the “conspiracy” documentary was more “coherent with available evidence”.
But conspiracy hit pieces are not about evidence, they’re about strawman attacks, character assassination, and emotional manipulation. This only works as a tool of persuasion on people who have little or no capacity for critical thinking, or on those who are already fully invested in a belief system. Such individuals are of no consequence in the “infowar,” as Hillary Clinton herself termed it, that continues to be won by the “conspiracy theorists” no matter how many hit pieces are produced and endlessly repeated by television networks that have lost a great deal of credibility.
Despite the establishment backlash, polls have consistently shown that the majority of people suspect a cover-up regarding 9/11, which is not surprising given the fact that the majority of 9/11 Commissioners tasked with investigating the events by the U.S. government itself also believe the same thing.
For those who doubt the impact left by the legacy of the 9/11 truth movement, just flip through your cable listings for the next week or two for a visual record of how desperate the establishment is to reinforce its official 9/11 fable.
What are they so scared of? The fact that the public may entertain the subject long enough to discover for themselves the fact that countless highly credible people question the official 9/11 story and have gone on record to express such doubts...[Full Article]
