Bob Graham Tells The Inside Story Of 9/11



“Investigative journalism” is a vague and overused term.

Many in the media — especially television — slap the name “investigative journalism” on everything. One-sided interviews with supposed experts are investigative journalism. Rewriting a news release or covering a breaking news event sometimes earns that term today, too.

What I consider “investigative journalism” is what the does: Mine public documents and data to find news. is doing some of the county’s best investigative journalism. Never heard of  You should get acquainted with it. It is very different than

Headed by national prize-winning veteran reporter Dan Christensen (A personal friend since we worked together on the old Fort Lauderdale News in the 1970-80s), the website has produced some real scoops. One found ties between the 9/11 hijackers and Saudis living in Sarasota.

Through that story, Christensen became acquainted with U. S. Sen. Bob Graham.  He agreed to do a fund raiser for the always money-short non-profit website.

Personal disclosure: I write for

So I know first hand that the site needs money to continue, if for no other reason than to pay me more.

Boardroom Communications, a Plantation public relations firm, believes there is a need for such a website in Broward.  They are co-sponsoring the event.

Thank you, Boardroom Communications!

According to the news release, Graham will discuss ,“Unanswered Questions of 9/11: A Conversation With Bob Graham.”  Then he will be available for questions and to sign copies of his latest book, “Keys to the Kingdom.” The event is September 11 at the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale.

I’ve got a question for Graham: How come the Democrats can’t find a decent statewide candidate to run against Gov. Rick Scott?

But I digress.

Here are the ticket options available:

  • Meet Sen. Graham at the 5:30 p.m. VIP Cocktail Reception. $75 ticket includes drinks and hors d’oeuvres, lecture, upfront seating and priority access at the book signing.
  • Pre-sale general admission tickets to the 6:30 p.m.  lecture are available for $20 through Aug. 31; $30 on Sept. 1-11.

And if you need a tax deducation, is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit. Which probably accounts for their low pay.  But we’re talking about me again.

Seriously, it’s a good cause.  See you there.

    The two Bob’s would be the best for Democratic Nominee’s for Governor and Lieutenant Governor in 2014. Bob Graham and Bob Butterworth. Either one on top of the ticket would be great.

    Pretty pitiful that you would have to trot out a couple of retired geezers from a generation ago to represent you. The Democrat Party is totally bankrupt of ideas, morals and credible candidates.

    Dan Christensen and his crew produce some amazing things.

    I stand read in envy.
