Saying that 70 Million Americans support the investigation after asking 1200 is bollocks, sorry.

this is IMO notnews. I am tagging it as such. 9/11 commission/hearings already happened. Already investigated. This is old news if news at all. Jason Safoutin 00:01, 26 May 2006 (UTC)Reply
I should also tag it NPOV....what about the other some were young back then but old enough to remember. Jason Safoutin 00:02, 26 May 2006 (UTC)Reply
And where are ther 70 million? 1200 does not equal 70 million. Jason Safoutin 00:03, 26 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

Properly conducted surveys on interesting topics almost always qualify as news. This story is news, the only ponetial problem is that the survey is a bit old. However, a week delay is acceptable but is starting to push it a bit. The big problem with this story is the claim that a survay of 1200 equals the views of millions. I have changed this and published it.--Cspurrier 00:19, 26 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

According to the sources, it was 45% who want a 9/11 re-investigation. So I changed the figure in the title from 70% to 45%. The figure "70%" probably came from a previous version where it said "70 million", which is more to the point, actually. Mikaelbook 11:36, 26 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

I used the 70% number from the title and subtitle of the World Net Daily source. However looking more closely at the article and the other sources, I find this number a bit odd. It looks like the 45% number is correct. --Cspurrier 13:49, 26 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

The news about the Zogby poll went largely unreported by the mass media, not only in America, but in other parts of the world as well. I have looked in vain for these news in "Le monde" (the prestigious French newspaper), "Helsingin Sanomat" and "YLE Aktuellt" (Finland's biggest paper in Finnish and public broadcasting company news in Swedish, respectively), "Dagens Nyheter" (a big newspaper in Sweden), and other mass distributors of news. Compare with the story about Osama bin Laden claiming that Moussaoui is not-guilty which came one day after the release of the Zogby poll. The news about Osama were spread by all the above-mentioned media although the authenticity of the tape with the statement about Moussaoui must be doubted. However, when a rumour like "The present King of France is bald" is broadcast massively enough, it ends up being believed both by large parts of the public and by the broadcasters themselves. Somehow, there must be a surviving king of France somewhere, when so many people are talking about him... Mikaelbook 05:33, 27 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

Has anyone else notieced that every source is biased or has a factually inncorrect title? Ronan.evans 06:21, 27 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

"An earlier Zogby poll (2004) showed that nearly half of New Yorkers polled believed certain U.S. officials "consciously" allowed the attacks to happen," until a sorce is included verifying this comment I am deleting it. Ronan.evans 06:23, 27 May 2006 (UTC)Reply
