TNRA is dedicated to getting vital information out to the widest possible audience, and in order to achieve our goals we sometimes need to use provocative techniques.
To this end, we are proud to launch the “Catherine Taylor project”. Catherine Taylor is the associate editor of ABC The Drum Unleashed - Robust community debate - one of the biggest online opinion websites in Australia.
I had the honour of writing an article on the 9/11 truth movement for Unleashed back in May 2008. The article achieved a record number of comments for the brief time it was open for comment. The moderators closed the discussion after only two days under pressure from trolls who claimed that there was a “campaign” at work. The ABC then immediately published two apallingly bad rebuttal pieces which you can find here and here. These articles are objectively devoid of journalistic merit and don’t engage with any single point raised in the original piece.
More than two years have gone by, and in that time the ABC has not published anything on the topic. The only time the topic has hit the media was in the re-broadcast of a shallow propaganda effort from the BBC titled “The Conspiracy Files“.
I attempted to address this imbalance last week and contacted Catherine by phone and email. You can read my first email and her reply here. You can read my second email here.
I am now inviting TNRA listeners and 9/11 truthers to contact ABC The Drum Unleashed to express your opinion directly.
The official email address for suggesting a contributor is: Unleashed@abc.net.au. You can also submit an email via an online form by clicking here. Make sure to address your email to Catherine Taylor.
You can contact Taylor by phone through the ABC switchboard on 02 8333 1500. Confidentiality issues prevent me from sharing Taylor’s direct email, however it is sufficient to note that email addresses at the ABC usually follow the form: Surname.Firstname@abc.net.au.
Please refrain from using threatening or abusive language as this will only damage our cause. Please keep your messages brief and succint and avoid bringing up speculative or fringe arguments which are not supported by the core of the 9/11 truth movment. Please don’t mention the word “Zionism”! Send your correspondence to us and we will publish it.
You can read a brief bio of Catherine Taylor here.
Our show tonight covers numerous other topics and Josh Jackson joins me to explore the topic of “Net Neutrality” which is a major theme in internet news at the moment.
Thanks for your help and thanks for listening!
