“Gray Lady of 43rd St.” Found Wanting
evidence of the controlled demolition of Building 7, was called to the attention of New York Times reporters and employees, and (an estimated) 100,000+ passersby, as memorialized in our incisive two-minute video starring one of our top AE911Truth Action Group leaders – Austin Farwell.By now, as most AE911Truth supporters are aware, the ReThink911 campaign ran a billboard ad directly across the street from the NY Times Building for two months. It asked the self-proclaimed “Paper of Record,” ‘Where is your story on the collapse of Building 7?’ The massive sign, which also points out that over 2,000 architects and engineers cite
Farwell has been working with AE911Truth as a volunteer since he moved to New York in 2012. He was one of the many activists hitting the street in New York City, and a key part of the events surrounding the NY Times Billboard Campaign. “It was a great experience filming that day,” Farwell said. “I was so pumped to see people really getting into conversations with staff from the NY Times and articulately stating our case. The key is outreach, exposure and creativity. There are so many smart, encouraging people involved with this grass roots group. We have centralized our arguments and have become a concerted voice.”
Not surprisingly, the Times didn’t reply, as their responsibility seems to be to conceal the truth rather than to reveal it. Rather than being a guardian of the First Amendment and presenting ''All the News That's Fit to Print,” the Times is, apparently, more of a public relations firm for the powers that be, masquerading as a “liberal” free” press all the while promoting an agenda of their own.
“We raised $25,000 in three days,” Walter said.The NY Times billboard ad, conceived of by Ted Walter, ReThink911 Campaign Manager, ran from November to December 2013. “The idea," according to Walter, “was to confront the media about their failure to cover the evidence that Building 7 was intentionally destroyed, and all the implications that follow." The effort as proposed resonated with many AE911Truth supporters. As a matter of fact,
The most prominent feedback from the “Gray Lady of 43rd Street” resulted from a ReThink911 Action Alert involving a call to C-Span’s Washington Journal TV show by “Scott” who asked NY Times Washington Bureau Correspondent David Sanger why the NY Times was avoiding the ReThink911 issue altogether. However, Sanger continued the Times’ avoidance policy, claiming that “…we’ve not found any evidence so far to suggest that the building collapses were caused by anything other than the two airplanes that flew into them.” Sound familiar? It’s the same type of evasive answer that was provided by NIST which “found no evidence of explosives used at Building 7," but avoided mentioning the fact that they had never actually looked to see if explosives had been used.
For Sanger, a natural follow-up question would have been, “Are you aware that no plane struck Building 7 which came down in free-fall acceleration, and that there is highly credible witness testimony of explosions before Building 7 came down?”
What has been accomplished by the ReThink911 billboard placed prominently in the face of the NY Times? We have made a direct and bold challenge to a bastion of NY corporate media censorship. Every employee in that immense office building knew what we were saying. And every chief editor and officer knew that everyone else in the building knew. About 100,000 other people, that didn’t know before, know now that 2,000 architects & engineers are demanding a new investigation – based on evidence for controlled demolition. And every step forward leads us to justice. We believe that it is just up ahead.
Support us with our next round of the ReThink911 ad campaign as we evolve our strategy and meet targeted groups of people where they do most of their personal and professional work – in their computer.
