9/11 news special you never saw

Posted in Documentaries, Politics + Diplomacy by expresscheckout on 15 September, 2006

In recent years, there has been an abundance of documentary films examining the events surrounding 9/11, seeking to answer questions that have until this day remained unanswered. And with one side of the camp accusing the other of conspiracy theorizing, and the other criticizing those who do as being deceitful and blind to the obvious, oftentimes the important questions are buried in the midst of political rhetoric that obstructs any constructive exploration to answer those very questions these groups set out to answer.

Unlike the line of explanation used by the directors of Loose Change or the editors of Popular Mechanics, Barry Zwicker focuses on the actual questions, calling for a rational, open mind recognizing patterns of history in order to seek the truth. And in his documentary, The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw, he criticizes the mainstream media and administrations for cultivating a culture of fear and failing to examine the holes in the story as it’s commonly told. He calls upon the viewer–skeptic and conspiracy theorist alike–to ask questions rather than settle for any explanation given thus far.

Barry Zwicker is an award-winning Canadian alternative media journalist, documentary producer, and left-wing political activist. He is also the director of an alternative information website, 911inquiry.org.
