Fahrenheit 9/11- Moore Lies

One small Illinois newspaper was surprised to see itself featured briefly in Fahrenheit 9/1.


Pantagraph columnist Bill Flick picks up the story.

In a flash-second early on, the movie shows various newspaper headlines on coverage of the presidential election of 2000, and one of them is from the alleged Dec. 19, 2001 [Ed - He might mean Dec. 19, 2000] edition of the Bloomington, IL Pantagraph.

But somehow there was no such news story in that day's paper. How could a news headline that never appeared in the Dec. 19 paper appear in a copy of the Dec. 19 paper shown in the movie?

The Pantagraph headline shown in the movie -- "LATEST FLORIDA RECOUNT SHOWS GORE WON ELECTION" -- actually appeared in our Dec. 5 edition. Illogically, if not inexplicably, a page apparently was "pasted together" to look like an actual Pantagraph page for the movie shot.

And here also is why we could never find the news story. It never was one.

Instead it was the headline atop a letter to the editor, significantly blown up to make it look like a news story.

Pure and simple the shot is an outright deception.

Update: Henceforth the movie shall be referred to here as Photoshop 9/11.

"Undercover federal air marshals on board a June 29 Northwest airlines flight from Detroit to LAX identified themselves after a passenger, “overreacted,” to a group of middle-eastern men on board, federal officials and sources have told KFI NEWS.

The passenger, later identified as Annie Jacobsen, was in danger of panicking other passengers and creating a larger problem on the plane..."

“We have to take all calls seriously, but the passenger was worried, not the flight crew or the federal air marshals...The complaint did not stem from the flight crew.”

The source said the air marshals on the flight were partially concerned Jacobsen’s actions could have been an effort by terrorists or attackers to create a disturbance on the plane to force the agents to identify themselves."


In other words the only problem on the flight was Jacobson and her hysterical racist fantasies...

Or, "Cowardly(^^)," it might just be the "racist" and/or sexist responses by others, about a, um, (WHITE) woman's instincts.

And, on further thought, I'd much rather be alarmed by a woman of any race about her instincts on a flight, than not be alarmed at all and suffer whatever consequences, much as it seems that the flights of 09/11 did -- people trying to make secret phone calls from onboard, sitting there being "nice" and "good passengers," later losing their lives from all that compliance.
