You Can't Handle the 9/11 Truth


C.D. Steltzer reports on the inclusion of a 9/11 "alternative theory" in Project Censored's list of overlooked stories—a decision that prompted two of the project's biggest names to jump ship.

Judges Robert Jensen, a journalism professor, and Norman Solomon, a syndicated columnist, severed their ties with the national media watchdog group over its decision last year to highlight the controversial theories of physics professor Steven Jones, a critic of the 9/11 Commission findings.

His views, which are available online at Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice (, have been largely passed over or dismissed by mainstream news outlets.
