Researching stories on the internet, which I have to do to find things to post, can often illuminate the old "two sides to every story" cliche. When I was watching the fracas on Real Time with Bill Maher last night (detailed in previous posts), I wondered what the 9/11 Truth movement's people thought of the episode.
Not surprisingly, they thought it was just great. They all seem to think that Bill Maher was really shown up, and that their movement would get a boost out of what happened. It's one of those moments when you scratch your head and think, "did they watch the same show I did?"
Listen, I have a 54" TV and a surround-sound stereo, and I could neither see what the protesters' sign said, nor hear what they were shouting (beyond "what about building 7?"). You cannot be effective if nobody knows what you're on about. They also interrupted a live show, one that does not feature audience participation. Who would any host react to that, even if he was totally on your side?
Bill Maher is a comedian. He's had to deal with hecklers his whole career. Did you really think that he was going to bring you up on stage, and let you be part of the panel discussion? You guys took a cause that many people (myself included) are on the fence about, and you made it very difficult for us to climb down onto your side.
