Is the Nova PBS Premier of “Manhunt – Boston Bombers” similar to “Debunking 9/11 Bomb Theories”

The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) is a non-profit public broadcasting television network in the United States, with 354 member television stations which hold collective ownership.[2] Its headquarters is in Arlington, Virginia. PBS is the most prominent provider of television programs to U.S. public television stations, distributing series such as Sesame Street, PBS NewsHour, Masterpiece, and Frontline.

What better way create the Official State Narrative to literally millions of Americans? One recalls the famous quote by Winston Churchill: “History is written by the victors.” This phenomenon, which is the re-writing and promotion of historical events, is termed the politics of memory, which according to Wikipedia:

The politics of memory is the political means by which events are remembered and recorded, or discarded. The terminology addresses the role of politics in shaping collective memory and how remembrances can differ markedly from the objective truth of the events as they happened. The influence of politics on memory is seen in the way history is written and passed on. Source: politics of memory

Clearly, the rationale for this form of Political censorship occurs when governments hold back information from their citizens. This is often done to exert control over the populace and prevent free expression that might foment rebellion. Source: Censorship

In an article posted by The Washington Times on Friday, May 4, 2007 titled PBS: Back to bias basics, a familiar story emerges in that the Public Broadcasting Service is essentially a state propaganda arm of the Obama Administration.

A few years ago, the left pulled several muscles exerting the strange theory that the Public Broadcasting Service was lurching dangerously to the right. When Corporation for Public Broadcasting Chairman Kenneth Tomlinson had the audacity not only to speak internal profanities (“fairness” and “balance”), but to try to build on them, it became clear to them he was out of control and had to be stopped.


The left maintains an iron grip on PBS with all the maturity and sophistication that a 4-year-old hangs on to a Happy Meal toy. The motto of its campaign against Mr. Tomlinson’s alleged transgressions should have been: “Mine. Mine. All Mine.”

Mr. Tomlinson is long gone, and Democrats now control Congress. But another step was necessary for classic PBS propaganda to re-emerge: the return of Bill Moyers. He was back to full-time fulminating duties April 25, with a special titled “Buying the War.” The entire thesis of this 90-minute taxpayer-funded lecture? The national media were willing cogs in the neoconservative machine that took America to war.

How is this for PBS balance: Mr. Moyers didn’t allow a single conservative, neo- or otherwise, to challenge this ludicrous idea. Oh, there were assorted clips of conservatives (myself included) speaking in the months after September 11, 2001, but only to “prove” his case for a noxious “patriotism police” that allowed no dissent.


In the same week, defense expert Frank Gaffney was telling a far different story — in fact, the opposite story. Unlike Mr. Moyers, Mr. Gaffney had proof. Back in the Tomlinson era, CPB pursued the idea of a broad-based documentary series on how America would respond to the post-September 11 world. Mr. Gaffney’s documentary proposal on “Islam vs. Islamism,” focusing on moderate Muslims’ efforts to challenge Islamofascists, was given a green light as one installment in the 11-part series called “America at the Crossroads.”

In a Bill Moyers Journal review of Buying the War on, he quotes Walter Pincus of The Washington Post, who painfully admits to this very kind of State Sponsored Propaganda.

Buying the War” examines the press coverage in the lead-up to the war as evidence of a paradigm shift in the role of journalists in democracy and asks, four years after the invasion, what’s changed? “More and more the media become, I think, common carriers of administration statements and critics of the administration,” says THE WASHINGTON POST’s Walter Pincus. “We’ve sort of given up being independent on our own.” – Source Buying the War

One look at the list of sponsors and funding and the picture becomes clear. PBS has been a mechanism of creating the historical record – regardless of the actual facts or controversy that millions of informed people are aware of. One infamous documentary series that involved re-writing history is:

Debunking 9/11 Bomb Theories
Posted 09.05.06 NOVA
Dr. Shyam Sunder, lead investigator for the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the government body tasked with investigating the Twin Towers’ collapse, explains away various conspiracy theories regarding the collapse. In this frank talk with NOVA producer Larry Klein, Sunder discusses why the buildings collapsed in an apparent free fall, why molten metal was seen high on one tower, and what puffs of smoke seen lower in the buildings actually were.

NOTE: is preparing a follow-up article that will publish all evidence to date on the Boston Marathon Bombing, While that is in production, please pass this information to as many people as possible so that the Truth on the Boston Marathon Bombing will be fully documented by all researchers who respect the Truth.
