We all know that PROJECT CENSORED advertises itself as an important medium for exposing stories that have been suppressed by the mainstream media. It was therefore stunning to me when, in the wake of the suppression of NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK (2015), I belatedly learned that news of the book’s banning by amazon.com had not made it to their notice.
This was huge news in the conspiracy research community, where I would make dozens of interviews and where many articles would be published about this extraordinary event. During my lifetime, the case that seemed to me to come the closest was the suppression of “The Pentagon Papers”, which revealed the evolution of our involvement in the quagmire known as Viet Nam. Here is a sampler of some of the articles that were published about it:
I have since been informed by someone who knows him that Peter accepts the official account of Sandy Hook, which may provide a partial explanation. But whether or not you agree with the contents of a book that has been banned, its occurrence is so unusual and striking that I find it impossible to avoid the inference that they ignored it because that is their role. Were PROJECT CENSORED on the job, they would have been all over this.
They instead appear to be a “limited hangout” conducted to create the impression that they are functioning as an intellectual watchdog, when something closer to the opposite is true. The same appears to be the case with Alex Jones’ inforwars.org, which initially published about the ban but then removed–and eventually even scrubbed–their archives of any trace.
After Amazon pulled the book, Alex Jones’ InfoWars noticed – and published this article exposing Amazon’s book ban. Here’s a screenshot of the article:
To draw attention to their article, InfoWars tweeted a link:
But within hours after that article was published, InfoWars suddenly deleted it from the Web. The InfoWars article simply vanished – without explanation.
As folks reacted to this curious censorship (by Amazon; then by InfoWars), the Google Cache copy of the InfoWars article was suddenly deleted as well – replaced with this“404 Error” message.
So, we have:
- Amazon banning Nobody Died at Sandy Hook while continuing to sell 19 other Sandy Hook books.
- InfoWars writing and publishing an article about Amazon’s banning of that book.
- InfoWars suddenly deleting their own article the same day it was published.
- InfoWars (or some other party) asking Google Cache to remove all traces of the deleted InfoWars article by scrubbing the cached version from Google servers.
Look at that photo: that’s not how folks behave at a “school massacre” where 27 people lay dead in pools of blood. Why is CT Chief Medical Examiner Wayne Carver casually lounging outside the school, while 20 kids presumably lay inside, freshly murdered? Why is everyone relaxed like they’re enjoying a break on a movie set?
Indeed, some believe the CT State Police photograph was taken during preparations – before any windows were broken – the day before the hoax “went live.”
Why Censor The Book?
