Why did they pick him? Why do they always offer Loose Change as a donor premium? Les Jamieson has friends at WBAI, they are playing an ad for the Ready for Mainstream event that he recorded.
JIm Fetzer is on WBAI right now (4 posts)
Someone needs to contact them. In most cases, no one has. People either get it, and stop hosting nonsense, or they don't and no harm done -- they may get it next time. Air America also hosts all the nonsense but it's likely they are part of it.
When Fetzer's site was linked on Rosie I emailed several times. They didn't remove it right away but added other links.
If you make suggestions for other speakers and DVDs, that helps. Once you organize the links to the worst nonsense in one place it's easier to just send that to people over and over.
Have you seen the leaflets they are taping up around town?
The first thing it says at the top is, "What is the best way for you to commemorate 9/11?" The implications to me, due me knowing of other potential actions, is that this is a comparative/competitive statement. If that was not the intention, the person who wrote this certainly didn't consider how it might be received.
One thing that can be done is to show WBAI the more recent 9/11 work of KPFA, which exposes 9/11 but sticks to reasonable people, not hoax promoters (like KPFK in LA often does). This was later rebroadcast on CSPAN.
12/26/06 9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out
Pacifica radio station KPFA ( www.kpfa.org ) in Berkeley California hosted editors and contributors to the book, "9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out." Speakers included Dr. David Ray Griffin, Dr. Peter Dale Scott, Dr. Peter Phillips, Kevin Ryan and former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, discussion moderator. The event was the first event involving the questioning of the official version of the 9/11 attacks that the KPFA radio station has ever sponsored. It was later replayed on C-SPAN2 Book TV in November of 2006. The event was sold out and turned away over 100 people at the door. Many of those in attendance were first-time listeners to the details of the potential role of insiders in the attacks of 9/11/01 and expressed shock at some of the information presented. Presenters assessed the Bush administration's responsibility for the attacks on 9/11 and suggested that the attacks were used to enact long established plans to expand the American empire. The DVD is available at PeaceProject.com.
