I’ve got a question about 9/11 concerning the various people who rolled out the official government storyline on TV that day. To what degree did they understand what was happening? In other words, which reporters and witnesses do you think were “in on it?”

That’s a good question John. It must be good because the short answer is I do not know, in most cases, which TV personalities and witnesses were in on it from the git-go and which were not. The reason: I was not “in on” the planning or execution of the crime. I cannot, in other words, at this stage offer proof beyond a reasonable doubt as to who was consciously “shilling” for the government and who was not.
Nonetheless, your question deserves some thought and informed speculation. As a general proposition, we know the broadcast media were in on 9/11, that these people are the “enforcement arm of the powers that be,” in the immortal words of Joe Keith. 9/11 was first and foremost a “psy op,” the greatest lie ever sold, and that means the media was central to the plot, as they always have been in major government scams.
Jesse Ventura says, “There is enough meat on this bone to begin making arrests.” I agree. So if I were a prosecutor I would form a grand jury and begin making arrests of media personnel and witnesses on relevant fraud and conspiracy charges, grill them as best I could, expose their contradictions and lies, break ’em down and make a case against. Who was “in on it” based on initial evidence? I would start with these fake eye witness accounts:
Sean Murtagh, CNN Vice President of Finance, conveniently called in the first report to CNN claiming a (fictional) airliner flew by him at 5 Penn Plaza and crashed into the WTC North Tower, one of the modest few in NYC that morning to claim such an event happened and thereby good ol’ Sean hardwired the airliner flight 11 myth into the American psyche.
This video also points out that George W. Bush is one of the rare witnesses who claims he saw a plane fly into the North Tower too, on TV no less. How he could have done that goes unexplained since there was no known broadcast of the North Tower hit, nor do we have any corroboration from witnesses around the president to support his story. Notice in the video all the alleged eye witnesses interviewed by the media uniformly say that a plane hit at about the 80th floor, even if they were at street level!? They all must be speaking from the same talking points.
The next day the media acquired the Naudet brothers or so-called firefighter (six-second) video, thereby cementing the fiction that an airliner crashed into the North Tower.
Beginning with Sean M. the media on 9/11 interviewed other (alleged) eyewitness media to sell the airliner fiction. It was a nicely controlled situation, including the following:
Rose Marie Arce, CNN producer: http://911logic.blogspot.com/2006/12/911-eyewitness-report-cards.html
Theresa Renaud, wife of CBS Early Show producer Jack Renaud: http://911logic.blogspot.com/2006/12/911-eyewitness-report-cards_05.html
Don Dahler, ABC correspondent: http://911logic.blogspot.com/2006/12/911-eyewitness-report-cards_12.html
Kai Simonsen, alleged Fox News reporter: http://911logic.blogspot.com/2006/12/911-eyewitness-report-cards_16.html
Then we have other lyin’ 9/11 eyewitnesses to interview in a most hostile manner like Stanley Praimnath and the Harley T-shirt guy (actor, “Fox freelancer”) Mark Humphrey. So I would take a “bottom-up” approach to prosecuting the corporate media for selling the 9/11 lie rather than beginning at the top with media CEOs.
As Still Diggin’ sums up, “When I began to look into the background of the ‘eyewitnesses’ who ‘called in’ to the various networks, I invariably found that even those people who appeared to be ‘common folk’ were anything but. They were either tied to the media or big business.”

More in response to your question about media and witness participation in the 9/11 hoax: a Florida appeals court ruled in 2003 that falsifying the news is not against the law: http://search4beauty.blogspot.com/2007/02/fox-news-has-no-legal-obligation-to_21.html and http://www.projectcensored.org/top-stories/articles/11-the-media-can-legally-lie/. Further, FCC regulations do not seem to hamper deliberate deception by the corporate media http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov/cgi/t/text/text-idx?c=ecfr&tpl=/ecfrbrowse/Title47/47tab_02.tpl. Two lessons seem obvious: 1) news buyer beware, and 2) prosecution of the corporate media and lying witnesses for their participation in the 9/11 conspiracy appears legally hopeless.
