From No Lies Radio

Communications [censored] James Tracy of Memory Hole Blog wonders why the foundation-funded “left” is so touchy about 9/11 truth and other subjects that might displease their paymasters. He wonders whether even the best of the foundation-funded media-watchdog groups, Project Censored, “is censoring non progressive-left outlets, including Infowars, while promoting nonsense like the SPLC’s ‘hate map’ and climate non-science.”

Chomsky’s Challenge: Interviewing MIT Engineers About 9/11 121

by Dave Lewit*

Maggie Zhou and I—a molecular biologist and a social psychologist— were challenged to find out what MIT engineers think of the collapse of the World Trade Center’s (WTC) Building 7. Armed with a portable player and a 5-minute “Building 7″ segment of the hour-long DVD “9/11 Mysteries” (2007), we descended on the student center cafeteria and professors’ offices in the Civil & Environmental Engineering department. We were driven by Professor Noam Chomsky’s disdain for “the 911 Truth industry” and their “insane conspiracy theory” which implies that the fall of the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Center in the aerial attacks of 2001 might be an “inside job”. He challenged his audience in a recent lecture to go to MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and ask the experts. So we did.

Propaganda Assets Old and New 311

By James F. Tracy

Progressive-left icon and public intellectual Noam Chomsky has derided the 9/11 Truth movement and been similarly dismissive of “conspiracy theories” for many years. The famous activist-academic recently remarked how “a lot of people … spend an hour on the internet and think they know a lot of physics” when attempting to fathom the bizarre collapses of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001. “It doesn’t work like that.”

The Censorship That Dare Not Speak Its Name 28

By James F. Tracy

This is a subtly revised set of remarks given at “The Point is to Change It” conference on November 1, 2013 at the University of San Francisco. The event was co-sponsored by Project Censored.

The panel on which I participated was organized by Project Censored Director Mickey Huff to address the contrast between the radical journalistic activity practiced by Project Censored and the decade-old US media reform movement that has sought to initiate broader policy changes at the federal level. In previous years PC has been excluded from media reform events, likely because of its research and criticism of foundation-funded progressive-left media and the censorial practices they impose on themselves and their peers.

Delving Into “Disinfo Wars” 48

Kevin Barrett interviews Nolan Higdon and James Tracy on Truth Jihad Radio.

Higdon’s article, “Disinfo Wars: Alex Jones War on Your Mind,” was published by Project Censored in September 2013. Tracy posted a critique of the piece at Memory Hole earlier this month; a response from Higdon appeared shortly thereafter.

The Financial Bearings of Manufactured Dissent 99

By James F. Tracy

This article was originally published at Memory Hole and Global Research on August 3, 2012. It is reposted here for further consideration in light of Nolan Higdon’s article, “Disinfo Wars: Alex Jones’ War on Your Mind,” published by Project Censored’s in September 2013, and the exchange concerning that work taking place here earlier this month.

The following should not be seen as a blanket condemnation of progressive media outlets, which often produce important work. Rather, the observations suggest how, particularly when faced with the challenge of forthrightly addressing “deep events” and the equivalent, such media are arguably subject to similar institutional pressures and self-censorship more overtly exhibited by their corporate-owned counterparts.*

New Book on Academic Dissidents Barrett and Fetzer

White_RoseThe Dynamic Duo: White Rose Blooms in Wisconsin is a new book about those notorious American resisters and truth-tellers, Dr. James Fetzer and Dr. Kevin Barrett.

Fetzer and Barrett, career academicians and longtime radio-show personalities, in the past hosted a radio show called “The Dynamic Duo.”

It all comes from that day, 22 November 1963, at 12:30 PM in Dallas.

From that day we got Oklahoma City, we got 9/11 and Afghanistan and Iraq.

“Disinfo Wars” Author Responds 76

(Received October 8, 2013)

Following the publication of my article, “DisinfoWars: Alex Jones War on Your Mind,” I was disheartened to read a blazing critique of the piece and Project Censored–who published it–from James Tracy. Given that we both worked on Censored 2014: Fearless Speech in Fateful Times, which was released just a few days before his critique, I would have assumed Tracy would have contacted Project Censored or me about the release of his article: “With ‘Disinfo Wars’ Project Censored Abandons Principles.” However, he did not and consequently released a critique chock-full of omissions and distortions.
