Expert: Bin Laden Warned of 'Unprecedented' Attack
(Reuters) Sep 11, 11:19 AM ET

Saudi dissident Osama bin Laden warned three weeks ago that he and his followers would carry out an unprecedented attack on U.S. interests for its support of Israel, an Arab journalist with access to him said Tuesday.

Abdel-Bari Atwan, editor of the London-based al-Quds al-Arabi, an Arabic-language weekly news magazine, said Islamic fundamentalists led by bin Laden were "almost certainly" behind the attack of the World Trade Center in New York.

It's just like what Chomsky says: the media functions to keep people distracted from the issues that incriminate those on top of the hierarchy. Media doesn't have a "liberal" or "conservative" bias; it has a corporate bias (just look at what companies are funding the mainstream news channels).

I think the only way we can have a truly free press is if we do away with the profit system. Media needs funding, so those with the most gold will simply fund the media outlets so as long as they report only what's in their interest. Even people like Keith Olbermann only attack the people doing the things that are wrong and refuse to do any kind of institutional analysis. Sad.
