KVUE News 3, ABC’s Austin affiliate, covered country music legend Willie Nelson’s statements about 9/11 he made yesterday on the Alex Jones Show.
The news brief included a snippet of Nelson asking rhetorically, “How naive are we?” before a short story about what it referred to as “controversial statements” Nelson made about the twin towers’ apparent demolition on 9/11.
KVUE did not refute the claims or make an attempt to belittle the claims, though it did mention some of his other political remarks– against the Iraq War and for Kinky Friedman’s bid for Governor of Texas.
BELOW IS THE TEXT OF THE KVUE REPORT:
Willie Nelson went on a nationally syndicated radio show Monday, and questioned the official story of what happened on Sept. 11.
Nelson said the collapse of the World Trade Center towers reminded him of a hotel implosion in Las Vegas.
“The day it happened, I saw one fall and it was just so symmetrical,” Nelson said on Alex Jones’ talk show. “I said, ‘Wait a minute, I just saw that last week at the casino in Las Vegas’, and you see these implosions all the time, and the next one fell and I said, ‘Hell, there’s another one.’ They’re trying to tell me that an airplane did it and I can’t go along with that.”
Nelson’s publicist would not comment on the radio interview.
This is not the first time Willie has gotten political. In recent years, he has written songs against the Iraq War, and also in favor of gay rights. Nelson also campaigned in favor of Kinky Friedman for governor.
