Bill Maher: 9/11 Conspiracy Hater?

October 24th, 2007 . by Alexander Fisher

On October 19, during the live broadcast of “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO, several members of a group trying to advance 9/11 conspiracy theories disrupted the show and one or more people were thrown out of the audience by the show’s staff. An aggravated Bill Maher even feigned some help to those that assisted at least one person to the door.

It all started because Bill had said something dismissive about any 9/11 theory other than the official administration version. Bill Maher is that way towards many people and subjects. That is why I like his show. I had read about some of this on the internet previously. There was much discussion of the perceived slight by Bill towards the theory and its believers. Some people were also picketing his building and had made a video and posted it online. It does surprise me that Bill is so adamantly opposed to the idea given his feelings about the current administration.

Let me start off by saying that I agree with Bill about the disruption caused by the 9/11 conspiracy crowd in his audience. They absolutely did not help their cause by doing what they did. I have very much respect for Bill and his entire staff. They put on a great show every week and I watch every minute of every episode. I know Bill has this opinion that there was no 9/11 conspiracy and that doesn’t bother me. But he should not use this incident to dismiss the possibility of a 9/11 conspiracy completely, because of the actions of a few nuttier nuts like those that chose to interrupt the show.

I think that some serious discussion someday on Real Time or any other TV show should not be ruled out. I have seen and heard many video/audio clips that really need more explanation by the media and the government. Many real world experts cannot explain some of the events of 9/11 limited by the constraints of the official story.

I will watch Bill Maher and enjoy every minute regardless of this one disagreement. I do think he only does himself harm to ignore this one subject, no matter the evidence, just because someone was bothering him about it.
