BBC tries yet again to extricate itself from the mess

This latest excuse-o-gram from Richard Porter amounts to a "they were all doing it" justification for their premature report, perhaps in the hope we mean old bloggers will go pick on someone else.

But Porter has simply reiterated what we already knew, EVERYONE got a report that the building was going to come down ahead of time. That is not the point. The point is that in a 100 year history of skyscraper construction., no steel-framed building had ever collapsed from fire prior to 9-11. So, WHO was telling the news media that the Saloman Brothers Building, aka WTC-7, was about to collapse when there was zero historical precedent for it?

I don't care what Richard Porter says to get BBC off the hook for this. What Richard Porter needs to tell us all is WHO was planting the story of the impending collapse of WTC-7 with all the media?

Editor's note: The question remains for BBC to answer. WHO gave them the premature report.
