Paul Thompson, creator of the 911 Timeline , will be appearing on Fox and Friends, 7:00 AM EST on September 9, and Air America at 7:00 AM EST the following day. He will also be speaking in New York City and Washington, D.C. on the 9th and the 11th, respectively.


That's fantastic!

I will be sure to watch it and I'll try to tape it.

I can't imagine how the Fox morning crew will treat you. And yet I can...
I'm sure you'll be paired up with an obnoxious right-winger.
I'll actually be surprised if they don't cancel it.
That's what often happened to JFK researchers in the 60's.

Paul, will you have a strategy going in?
Do you have a "playbook", so to speak?
E.g., Maybe you'll have anecdotes about 9/11 families using this site?
Are there timeline entries that you hope to launch into mainstream circulation?
(But don't give it away here, if so!)

Whoever is picked to rebut you will play dirty.
There's a manual for how to manipulate debate, and they'll use every trick.
You ought to practice, try to find the most argumentative person you know.
Someone who can be a bully, someone who can demean you, or trip you up.
Do you know any lawyers? :)

I would love to hear the Air America interview, but it's not aired in Boston.
(Why not, I don't know. AA would get huge ratings in Boston.)
Do you think you might make a recording of the AA interview available?

The Fox appearance could be a something of a momentous occasion for the 9/11 truth movement. Something kind of like Garrison on the Carson show...a touchstone, a breakthrough...No pressure!

j/k

Good luck Paul!

Paul, I hope you're scoping out the "Fox Friends" in advance.
The two dudes are like a combination of Sean Hannity and the morning show host that Will Ferrell played on SNL. The Stepford Wife that co-hosts is a wild card...

Links to help you out if they invite a guest to "balance" you:

Most helpful (Especially the "proper responses"...I'm assuming):

I hope you can contact someone who's had experience with appearances like yours.
It'd be nice if you could find out who they'll trot out to "balance" you.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

My VCR wouldn't work!

Please tell me someone else taped it...
If so, could a copy be uploaded to the net, or sent as a VCD or something?

Paul, how did it go?

Ummm...is Paul going to tell us how the Fox and Air America appearances went?

Or is he, like, saving that for a book?
