Willie Nelson's explosive take on 9/11, that the collapse of the twin towers and Building 7 looked like Las Vegas-style implosions, has largely been ignored by the medis thus far, though it briefly flirted with the front page of the Drudge Report before quickly being canned.

About an hour after we released the story, members of our forum alerted us to the fact that our headline had been posted on the front page of the Drudge Report, which ranks as one of the biggest news websites in America and competes for traffic with the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Though it was not linked to our website, the headline "Willie Nelson: Twin Towers Were Imploded On 9/11... Developing..." appeared on the left hand side of the Drudge Report late yesterday afternoon.

However, within about 20 minutes or so the headline was pulled from the front page.

A similar thing happened when Charlie Sheen went public with his 9/11 doubts in March 2006 - the story briefly appeared on Drudge before being removed.

To hazard a guess at what happened, we believe that one of Drudge's assistants posted the headline before swiftly being overruled by Matt Drudge himself, resulting in the headline being memory holed.

The headline as it appeared on Drudge before it was pulled can still be viewed at the Drudge Report Archives website, which takes a screenshot of Drudge's front page every two minutes.

The story did make the front page of Breitbart.tv, which is run by Drudge's assistant Andrew Breitbart, meaning it was probably Breitbart that posted the Willie Nelson story before being overruled by Drudge himself.

So why did Drudge pull the link?

Charlie Sheen's brave embrace of 9/11 truth left the establishment media with two choices - either to ignore the story or attack Sheen. They chose to attack Sheen and that decision disasterously backfired, because it gave 9/11 truth a public platform and prompted a national debate. When his father Martin Sheen went public, the media took a different approach and completely blackballed the story. It appears that Drudge has set the standard for the second method to be employed again.

Though the story was covered last night by a Texas news channel, the rest of the media are so far silent on the issue and it remains to be seen whether or not they will keep up a united front of censorship in an attempt to diffuse the import of Willie Nelson's comments on yesterday's Alex Jones Show.
