Is this going to overshadow 9-11?

Do you think all this hoopla over the Mosque and the burning of the Quran going to overshadow the remembrance of the 9-11 victims?
I sure hope not but I'm skeptical that the media can drop it for a day.

  • I don't think that it can. There wouldn't be a mosque debate about anything at Ground Zero if not for 9/11. The memorial cermonies are still going to take place in NY and the pentagon just like they do every year as well.

  • Only if people let it. If the media decides to focus on other things, I guess they can do that - but 9/11 will only be forgotten/ignored when the people of America allow it to happen.

    I don't need a 9/11 recap shown on the news to remember what happened.

  • Hate to say it but I could see that happening..or at the very leat they will give more air time to the BBQ Koran story..

    I hope it doesn't happen either though..

  • Maybe, but people still have events going on in their towns. We are going to a Memorial event at the park and then to a special mass.

  • I hope not as well, but nothing would surprise me as this point.

  • Sweet, looks like your hate for Palin and Beck is showing

  • I don't think it will.

    Answer by gertie41 at 10:15 AM on Sep. 10, 2010

  • Doubt it.

    The President is speaking at the Pentagon and there is a memorial service planned for NY.....Palin & Beck are doing something in Alaska...(what that has to do with 9/11???) So there are things going on...

    Does anyone know if PBS is running the 9/11 tributes again?
