Video – KBDI Denver Airs 9/11 Press for Truth

Major 9/11 Truth Breakthrough!!! KBDI Denver Airs 9/11 Press for Truth

It was a big big day at the KBDI Five Points Media center for 9/11 Truth.

Having developed a relationship with the Denver metro area local PBS broadcasting station for over the last 3 years by simply taking donation phones calls, in exchange for a few minutes to talk to the audience about the 9/11 cover up, Colorado 9-11 Visibility has succeeded in making history.

KBDI aired the groundbreaking documentary film 9/11 Press for Truth June 4, 2009 during prime time with well over an hour of live interviews with film producers Kyle Hence and Ray Nowosielski, and also powerful testimony from Bob McIlvaine.

Station managers and VP were extremely pleased as to how well this documentary was received and should be commend for doing what no other station has done in the nation and air a controversial film exposing the cover up of the 9/11 tragedy by our government.

The station Press Release reflects the excitement and enthusiasm of the Colorado’s 9/11 Truth community hailing this a major step forward and encouraging other stations to air this incredible documentary film.

This is being touted as one of the most successful fund raising events in station history and proves that people are dying for real answers about that day.

Typical Ad-Hominem Hit Piece Emerges in the Wake of Wednesday’s Historic Broadcast on KBDI

Typical Ad-Hominem Hit Piece Emerges in the Wake of Wednesday’s Historic Broadcast on KBDI

Just two days after the historic broadcast of 9-11 Press for Truth on KBDI Channel 12 in Denver, a hit piece on this event has been published at a Denver based “news” website.  In typical fashion that has become well known and easily recognizable, the article consists of straw-man arguments and ad hominem attacks.  The article is so sloppily written that the author even gets the city where KBDI is located wrong.  Please visit the comments section for this article and leave some feedback for Mr. Lee.  –Michael

PBS doesn’t just lean left, it falls down drunk left.

Last Wednesday (5/27/09), Mike Rosen interviewed Doug Price, CEO of Rocky Mountain PBS television, on his 850 KOA radio show. Price appeared on KOA to debate Rosen’s assertion (which he had previously made in his weekly Denver Post editorial column), that public broadcasting is left of center. Price tried for an hour to make the case that, while PBS (nationally) may “lean left”, his and other local public television stations, do not.

Just two days later, KDBI – public broadcasting in Boulder, CO ran a fundraiser during prime time featuring a video entitled, 9/11 Press For Truth, which presents a completely one-sided screed against the Bush Administration, claiming that (it) knew the 9/11 attacks were coming and did nothing to prevent them. The program neglects to interview any senior Bush White House personnel or to even mention the relevant intelligence that was made available to the Clinton Administration.

Executive Producer Kyle Hence, Director Ray Nowosielski, and family member Bob McIlvaine – who lost his son Bobby in the attacks on New York – were in the KBDI studios and extolled their film throughout the evening. Additionally, volunteers from Colorado 911 Visibility were on hand to answer phones, although they appeared without their trademark tin foil hats.
After the show aired, KDBI staff offered the DVD (as a premium) as they hawked membership donations. At that same time, those individuals directly associated with this far Left conspiracy, were allowed to proclaim on air, that “Bush Administration personnel should be criminally prosecuted” based solely on the case they presented in their own program.

Based on this example of station-sanctioned, Bush Derangement Syndrome (BDS), it appears that, despite the protestations and rationalizations of PBS exec Doug Price, Mike Rosen was indeed accurate (in his contention) that public broadcasting, like the Leaning Tower of Pizza, leans left – way left.

‘9/11 Press for Truth’ on Channel 12 Draws Huge Support from Colorado Public Television Viewers
Program will repeat at 2:00, 9:00 and midnight on Saturday

Release Date: 06/04/09
Author: J Nagle

DENVER – (June 4, 2009) – KBDI has always been at the forefront of controversial programming and last night was no exception. As the first broadcast station in the United States to air the controversial documentary 9/11Press for Truth, which claims a 9/11 cover-up, KBDI showed that it is not afraid to touch on sensitive subjects.

Due to viewer response to the program, Channel 12 will repeat the program Saturday, June 6 at 2 p.m. and 9 p.m., followed by an encore at midnight.

During the premiere, Bob McIlvaine, who lost his son Bobby at the World Trade Center, and 9/11Press for Truth producer Kyle Hence and director Ray Nowosielski were in the studio to give more insight into why they believed 9/11 was a cover-up and why the American public should be screaming for answers.

Supporters of the documentary hope that because of the risk KBDI took by putting 9/11 Press for Truth on the air that more PBS stations across the nation will take a chance and broadcast the controversial documentary.

Press for Truth’s producer Kyle Hence already has heard the cries saying people from all over the country have been forwarding his e-mails on to their local PBS stations.

The program will repeat on Channel 12.  A full schedule of air times for all of the programs can be found at www.KBDI.org.

‘9/11 Press for Truth’ U.S. Television Premiere will be June 3 on KBDI-Channel 12

For immediate release

‘9/11 Press for Truth’ U.S. Television Premiere will be June 3
on KBDI-Channel 12

The film’s producer and a victim’s father will be in KBDI’s studio for the premiere

DENVER – (May 26, 2009) – 9/11 Press for Truth, an independent documentary that claims a 9/11 cover-up, has been shown in theatres and broadcast overseas, but it hasn’t been aired on a U.S. broadcast station.

That will change next week when KBDI-Channel 12 premiers the controversial documentary Wednesday, June 3 at 7 p.m.

During Channel 12’s premiere, Bob McIlvaine, who lost his son Bobby at the World Trade Center, and 9/11Press for Truth  producer Kyle Hence will join KBDI-Channel 12’s Shari Bernson in KBDI’s studio.

9/ll Press for Truth emerged from a group of grieving activist families that joined together to demand a press for truth.  Five of the families – including McIlvaine and three of the famous “Jersey Girls” – tell their story in the documentary, providing argument for why 9/11 still needs investigation.

The families found an ally in Paul Thompson, who wrote a definitive 9/11 timeline, and also found allies in the filmmakers who stitch together rare, overlooked news clips, buried stories and government press conferences, revealing what is portrayed as a pattern of lies, deception and spin.

The documentary asserts that although independent investigations began within weeks of both Pearl Harbor and the Kennedy assassination, the same was not true of the attacks of September 11, and the formation of the 9/11 Commission was strongly opposed by many in Washington, including the Bush Administration.  It was only due to pressure from the 9/11 families, led by twelve calling themselves the Family Steering Committee, that, 14 months after the attacks, the first hearing began.

“Channel 12 zeroed in on this documentary to further our exploration of the movement toward truth and accountability in the country,” Bernson said.  The station is already receiving inquiry calls and emails, she said. “We are pleased to see interest in the subject matter that shouldn’t be shunned, and deserves to be discussed more widely.”

The documentary premiered theatrically in New York City in 2006 and has been shown in cities across the United States and throughout the world.

Wednesday’s airing represents its first on a U.S. broadcast station, and the first time a PBS affiliate has given voice to documentary filmmakers who have credibly challenged the official narrative of what happened on 9/11 and why.

The program will repeat on Channel 12.  A full schedule of air times for all of the programs can be found at www.KBDI.org.

Visibility 9-11 Welcomes Kyle Hence, Producer 9-11 Press for Truth

This episode of Visibility 9-11 welcomes back to the program Kyle Hence, founder of 9-11 Citizens Watch and producer of the excellent documentary 9-11 Press for Truth.  Included is a brief discussion about the film as well as a new film Kyle is working on based on footnote #44 in Chapter 6 of the 9-11 Commission Report.  A press release from the September 11th Advocates reads in part:

“In July 2004, when the 9/11 Commission released its Final Report, we read with enormous interest, Chapter 6 – “From Threat to Threat”, including footnote #44. Footnote #44 details an instance where a CIA desk officer intentionally withheld vital information from the FBI about two of the 9/11 hijackers who were inside the United States. This footnote further states that the CIA desk officer covered-up the decision to withhold said vital information from the FBI. Finally, footnote #44 states that the CIA desk officer could not recall who told her to carry out such acts.”

Also included in this discussion are the circumstances surrounding the historic national premier of 9-11 Press for Truth on a major market PBS station.  On June 3, 2009 at 7:00pm, 9-11 Press for Truth will be shown on KBDI, Channel 12 in Denver Colorado.  This historic broadcast will feature in studio interviews during the broadcast of Kyle Hence, Bob McIlvaine, and a representative of Colorado 9-11 Visibility.  As has been the case for the past couple of years, Colorado 9-11 Visibility will also be manning the phone banks during the broadcast which is also part of their periodic fund drives at KBDI.  A great list of 9-11 books and DVD’s will be offered as premium gifts to viewers who pledge during this broadcast.  Please contact KBDI and let them know how much you appreciate this historic broadcast and if you can, give them a donation which best fits your budget.

Media Breakthrough! 9-11 Press for Truth to Be Shown on Mainstream Television

Media Breakthrough!  9-11 Press for Truth to Be Shown on Mainstream Television

I am very happy to announce that for the first time in our movements history,  9-11 Press for Truth will be shown on a mainstream media television station.  KBDI Channel 12 in Denver Colorado has just confirmed that they will be showing this groundbreaking film during their upcoming pledge drive on June 3, 2009.

As has been the case in the recent past, Colorado 9-11 Visibility will be there manning the phone banks and expect to get some prime time during this showing to make our plea for a new investigation into the crimes of September 11th, 2001.

As many of you may know, this is not the first time that Colorado 9-11 Visibility has made an appearance on KBDI.  Our most recent appearance was in March of this year during the showing of America, Freedom to Fascism.  Our time at KBDI actually goes back a couple of years when one of our members, Michael Anderson approached the station about our group volunteering to man the phones during their pledge drive.  As a perk for the volunteering organization, KBDI gives the opportunity to promote the group on-air during their time on the phone banks and promote we did!  We do not know the whole story on what kind of effect we had, but during this initial appearance on KBDI, we handed out DVD’s and other 9-11 related literature to the staff at the station.  To me, they were friendly enough, but I felt their reception of us was lukewarm at best.  What a nice surprise to us when we were invited back again and again for all subsequent pledge drives since and given and increasingly warmer reception.  And now this!  We are ecstatic over this as it is the result of years of determined work by our group of very dedicated activists here in Colorado.

You can see our previous appearances on KBDI here.

Congratulations to the makers of the film, and to the members of Colorado 9-11 Visibility, and BRAVO to KBDI Channel 12 in Denver for having the guts to do what no other television station in this country has done.

Colorado 9-11 Visibility, KBDI Denver, PBS, America Freedom to Fascism

On March 5th 2009 the local PBS station, KBDI, in Denver Colorado broadcast the groundbreaking expose, America: Freedom To Fascism to raise funds for the station. They invited volunteers from Colorado 911 Visibility to run the phone bank. In this clip Earl Staelin is interviewed about the points of that day in September that we still don’t have answers for.

To support KBDI please consider making a pledge so they can continue broadcasting the message to truth to the American people.
