"@representativepress Could I ask what your take on the comments of President Ahmadinejad at the UN General Assembly, concerning 9/11? I personally found that part of his speech somewhat confusing, but I do not trust for a second, the media's accusation that he claimed 9/11 was an 'inside job.' Thanks in advance!"
Here's a comment asking me for my take on President Ahmadinijad's speech at the UN. Thanks for the question. You were right to be suspicious of the media.
I looked into that accusation, I read the transcript of what he said, and it turns out that once again the media did not accurately report what he said. It's another example of a media falsehood. Once again the media fails to serve the public. Once again reporters mislead the people. You can see that he didn't go before the UN and announce that he thought 9/11 was an inside job. If you listen to the words of the translator or read the text of the translation of his speech you can see that he didn't announce 9/11 was an inside job. But reporters ignored what he actually said in his speech and misreported his message. He even had to ask a reporter if he had the text of his speech.
Think about this, how did the New York Times manage to get it wrong in the first place? And after getting it wrong, yes they did admit the truth which is that Ahmadinijad did not say that the United States had planned the 9/11 attacks. They said that in a correction but how many people get to see the correction?
It would be interesting to see how widey know the correction is compared to the original wrong story. How many of the people who were mislead had the oportunity to see the correction? And this kind of thing is a pattern of misleading and misinforming the public. take a look at these two videos:
