Untitled comments[edit]

Should CBS's airing of the documentary on March 10th be mentioned? It was hosted by Robert Deniro and was rerun, I believe, on the first anniversary. Notheruser

Sure, go ahead. I missed it on TV, actually--part of a deliberate choice to miss almost everything on TV--so I can't do much except add what you just wrote. Maybe you'd be the better person to add it. :-) Koyaanis Qatsi
I added information about the broadcasts and the release of the DVD. If you watched one thing that week--there was plenty to choose from--this should have been it. (that is if you specifically missed TV just that week) Notheruser
I've specifically missed TV since I discovered years ago that I can sit in front of it all day watching Discover and TLC and then feel tired, as if I had actually done something. Koyaanis Qatsi 13:53 Feb 19, 2003 (UTC)

I've just taken out "the rookie and"... from the line about the call-out to the gas leak -- if you look at the video you'll see that the rookie wasn't on that call-out and, indeed, after the crashes he was left alone to look after the firehouse with one of the producers.

Right. Chalk that one up to sloppy writing late at night. I remember him jittery, watching TV and cursing a lot. Koyaanis Qatsi 02:09 Feb 20, 2003 (UTC)

Was the March 10 show the first time the public had seen the footage of the first plane hitting the building? I seem to remember viewing just that clip starting a day or two after it happened. --Bluejay Young (talk) 18:45, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Name[edit]

Shouldn't the article be named "9|11", with an upper slash? I have the film, and it's 9|11, not 9/11. Just look up a picture of the cover somewhere. Gold Stur 06:22, 5 September 2005 (UTC)

Pipe characters in Wikipedia article titles are problematic.--Rosicrucian 06:30, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

Rookie?[edit]

I think he was on probation for a year or something... Didn't they call him a probie (as opposed to a rookie)?

Tony Benetatos was in a nine month probationary period. And they do call those guys "probie", short of Probationary Firefighter The Banner talk 18:11, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

site of gas leak[edit]

Edited to show where reported gas leak was (and thus, where footage of the first plane impact was filmed from). You can view it on Google Maps, and can even see the grate where the BC was holding the little instrument. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.192.58.206 (talk) 06:19, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Something missing...[edit]

The article says:

At the time of its broadcast, the FCC took no action against the network for violating indecency rules because doing so would have a negative connotation and would be interpreted as sanitizing history.
However, a recent ruling by a federal appeals court had successfully granted a "temporary halt"[4] to the FCC's enforcement of its indecency rules.

I'm assuming since the original broadcast the FFC asked them to censor it. The article isn't clear. 2001:8003:600B:1201:ECFB:D286:5561:4426 (talk) 15:40, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
