Popular Mechanics: "The attacks if (sic) 9/11 is what caused WTC 7 to collapse"

In one of the most pathetic hit pieces in ages, Inside Edition has thrown together an unbelievably horrible piece of propaganda in an attempt to trash Rosie and 9/11 Truthers. The Orwellian doublethink one would have to exhibit to believe this trash is surreal:
James Meigs, editor in chief of "Popular Mechanics," ... said as much as 25% of the building was scooped out by the falling debris. He added, "There were intense fires that burned inside the building that weakend the steel frame. Rosie O'Donnell said this was the first time in history fire melted steel, but fire doesn't have to melt steel to weaken it enough to fail."

Building 7's symmetrical "failing" in 6.5 seconds due to fire.

To qualm you nutty conspiracy theorists who think that a building "weakened" by fire would not symmetrically collapse in 6.5 seconds, the "Inside Edition" continues with its "expert," "scientific," analysis:
The building is seen falling in on itself, and it seems to follow the classic pattern of a controlled demolition.

But Meigs says that it's no conspiracy. "You don't need to go into fanciful explanations of bombs and mysterious things. That building fell because of the attacks if [sic] 9/11."
You see foolish theorists, the one factor you forgot was the "attacks if 9/11"! The "attacks if 9/11" is what caused WTC 7 to collapse! It had nothing to do with those "mysterious things" called bombs (You know the things which go *BOOM* and are used to demolish buildings? You probably don't, they're very mysterious).

So there you have it, the "attacks if 9/11" is what caused the collapse, thank you Inside Edition and Popular Mechanics for enlightening us all.

And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed - if all records told the same tale -- then the lie passed into history and became truth. 'Who controls the past' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.' And yet the past, though of its nature alterable, never had been altered. Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting. It was quite simple. All that was needed was an unending series of victories over your own memory. 'Reality control', they called it: in Newspeak, 'doublethink.'

'Stand easy!' barked the instructress, a little more genially.

Winston sank his arms to his sides and slowly refilled his lungs with air. His mind slid away into the labyrinthine world of doublethink. To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again: and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself. That was the ultimate sublety: consciously to induce unconciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word 'doublethink' involved the use of doublethink.
