Geraldo Rivera: The 9-11 “Nutjobs” May Be Right
Geraldo admits that “those loathsome, ‘9-11 was an inside job’ protesters may have some reason to have adherence of people more mainstream…”

I admit, I missed these two shows in which the following two clips [below] come from, Geraldo at Large on November 13 and Judge Napolitano’s show Freedom Watch on November 19, in which Building 7 was brought the most national attention I have ever seen.
Geraldo admits that the thing that caught his eye about Building 7 is a new campaign called BuildingWhat? that is led by 9-11 victims’ families. Geraldo was also intrigued in finding out that over 1,200 architects and engineers publicly challenge the official story of Building 7 and believe explosives had to be used to bring the building down.
Although Geraldo should be applauded in now bringing Building 7 to the national spotlight, it is also this very reason that I have contempt for him and others like him in the controlled, bought-and-paid-for media. Yes, he is now admitting that 9-11 truthers may be validated in their beliefs if what they claim is true, but a few years ago he was calling truthers anarchists and giving them the finger like everyone else who accepts the official story hook, line and sinker and refused to do one minute of investigation.
If Geraldo had an interest in finding out why truthers were outraged and protested in New York City a few years ago, instead of sitting back calling them “nutjobs”, this issue may have been on the front burners a bit sooner. But he, like all the others major news outlets, called 9-11 truthers “whackjobs” and “kooks” and claimed they have no sympathy for 9-11 victims families, when in reality, truthers may have had the most sympathy for them, since our very own government recently voted no to giving money to helping the victims families. Now that Geraldo acknowledges that victims’ families make up a large number of what he called “kooks”, he seems to be listening.
I give credit to Geraldo for finally shedding light on this topic, but I still have feelings of contempt for him and his ilk for their irresponsible and lazy journalism over the past 9 years.
On November 13, Bob McIlvaine [who lost his son on 9-11] and mechanical engineer Tony Szamboti appeared on Geraldo Rivera’s show “Geraldo At Large” on Fox News to talk about the “BuildingWhat?” TV ad campaign:
Geraldo Rivera appeared on Judge Napolitano’s Freedom Watch on November 19, 2010 to reiterate his position:
