Thanks to Everyone Who Helped Make This Year a Success

This year saw '9/11 Press For Truth' not only complete it's over-two-years-long production but also find critical acclaim and a receptive, enthusiastic audience from a groundswell of concerned people worldwide who felt that the 9/11 Commission and the western news media had failed to account for many important issues.

'Press For Truth' opened theatrically in eight major cities in the the U.S. and, thanks to the activists at Robert Greenwald's Brave New Theaters, at over a hundred house parties in more than fifty cities around the country. The movie aired on televisions in Spain, Norway, Poland, and throughout the Middle East on al Jazeera. It was released on DVD by The Disinformation Company for sale across America at select Borders, Virgin Megastore, Sam Goody, Suncoast, and, and for rent at Netflix and

This feat was accomplished not by us, but by dozens and dozens (hundreds?) of people and organizations that made all these things possible. To try to list them all without forgetting someone would be an exercise in futility. You know who you are. Thank you all so much.

And thanks to you, the receptive audience who embraced this movie. What a year! Let's hope, for all our sakes, that the message gets spread far and wide in 2007.

A Christmas Present From a Conservative Magazine

'The New American', the bi-weekly national magazine published by the John Birch Society, writes in today's issue that "'9/11 Press For Truth' effectively presents some of the most glaring discrepancies, lies, and coverups concerning the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil."

Go here and search "Pressing For the Truth on 9/11" to read the full article.

It is important to note that the John Birch Society is a staunchly conservative American exceptionalist organization founded in 1958 to fight communist philosophy in the U.S. They are rabidly anti-socialist and anti-leftist.

'Press For Truth' has often been mislabeled a "left-leaning" documentary despite the efforts of the filmmakers to stay away from politics entirely and stick to a "just the facts, ma'am" approach. It is the facts, not the filmmakers, that are unfriendly to the Bush administration, among others, regarding 9/11.

The conservative 'New American' concurs, writing that the movie "transcends partisan politics and should be seen by all Americans who are committed to justice and are determined to secure our country against similar -- or worse -- attacks in the future."

Netflix 'Press For Truth' DVDs Purposely Broken

A concerned supporter from St. Paul, Minnesota, sent us an email today that reads as follows:

"I thought you might be interested to hear about my experience trying to rent '9/11: Press for Truth' from Netflix. Yesterday I received my fourth 'broken' (literally -- cracked in half) copy of the film. This is well beyond any damage that could happen by chance. Below is my correspondence, to date, with Netflix customer service. I'm awaiting my fifth copy, which is expected to arrive tomorrow. We'll see just what condition that one is in! I can't imagine that I am the only one who has had this sort of trouble. Maybe you've heard other similar stories?? Thanks for your attention. I look forward to seeing this film someday!"

The correspondence she received from the Netflix Customer Service department furthers the mystery, since they claim "our warehouse staff performs an inspection on each and every DVD before it leaves our warehouse... If a movie is not visibly damaged... we will ship the copy to the next customer."
