Rupert Murdoch's media empire has set what may be a new standard of shamelessness by marking the anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks with the publication of a map of human remains that appears to have been developed for the New York Fire Department in 2002 but was never previously released.

"Here's the chilling proof that Ground Zero stretches well beyond the boundaries of the World Trade Center site," Murdoch's New York Post boasted. "The map was obtained by The Post from sources after the Fire Department did not respond to requests to review it. It shows that remains were found just 348 feet to the south of the mosque site at 45 Park Place."

Although the Post article does not make it clear how the map was obtained, it appears that the Fire Department was opposed to its release.

An even more ominous version of the same map, with lurid red dots glowing like puddles of freshly-spilled blood against a dark background, was deployed by the hosts of Fox News' Fox & Friends on Friday morning.

The map indicates that human remains or traces of DNA were concentrated directly at the former World Trade center site, but there are a few dots further away, including three between 350 and 400 feet -- about one and a half city blocks -- from the proposed site of an Islamic cultural center.

"The reason we bring this up," Fox's Doocy explained, "is because the imam himself said, 'Look, this site is not ground zero proper. Nobody's body was near that location.' ... To the people who lost loved ones, it is sacred ground -- and, we should point out, 1,100 people's remains to this day have still not been identified."

Doocy did not mention that most of the structural steel from ground zero -- probably including some of those unidentified remains -- was quickly shipped to a Staten Island landfill for scrap processing, with 50,000 tons winding up going to Shanghai and another 10,000 to India.

Outrage at use of the map for this kind of political purpose has been swift. One response in a comment thread at Media Matters asked, "Are they going to reenact the day on 9/11? This is sickening."

"Agreed," added another. "It's disgustingly morbid. Next they'll start showing pictures of the people that died there and ask 'Do you think they'd want it built there?'"

A New York City blog reprinted the Post map with the addition of other local landmarks. "We made their map better," the Awl notes grimly. "Human remains: YOU'RE SHOPPING IN IT. You're BOXING IN IT. You're DRINKING IN IT and ATTENDING CUNY IN IT and you're GOLDMAN SACHSING IN IT."

The Fox segment also focused on recent remarks by the imam who plans to build the community center. Imam Feisal Adbul Rauf told ABC's Christiane Amanpour on Thursday that any agreement to move the building's location further away from the site of the former World Trade Center would be a "wrong move."

"This issue has riveted the attention of the whole Muslim world," he explained. "Let's say we moved under this current circumstance with this dialogue. What will be the headline tomorrow? 'Islam under attack in America.' ... That will feed the radicals. So diffusing terrorism is a necessity for our national security."

"It sounds to me like a warning," Fox's Brian Kilmeade said suspiciously.

"It almost seems now like they intended to incite this sort of reaction from Americans," Gretchen Carlson suggested, "so that they could come full circle and say what the imam said the other night, which was, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa, if you move it now, we've going to attack you."

"That statement to me is the most troubling statement of this entire discussion," she concluded. "And it made me wonder, did they do this on purpose?"

  • Oh for fuck's sake. Such a non-story.

    Crucifix in a jar of piss? ART!
    Mary Magdaline painted in shit? ART!
    Burning the American flag? FREEDOM OF SPEECH!
    Burning a copy of the Bible? FREEDOM OF SPEECH!
    Burning a COPY of the Koran?* INTERNATIONAL MAYHEM!!

    *Would it be right? No. But look at the double standards.

    You LLers outside the USA thanks your lucky stars.

    • Agreed, but tell that to the Muslims who are jumping up and down at the very THOUGHT of burning the Koran, for that matter, how about if the Koran was put in a bottle of piss and shown off as art?, or Mohammad and his crew painted in shit and shown around the world as ART,here`s an idea for you guy`s over there, how about you do a Koran in a piss bottle and put it up next to a photo of the Crucifix that was also in a bottle of piss, lets get some feedback on that, or would that be ducking from I More..

    • Double standards.

      Yes, indeed, there is a double standard. I apply this double standard to muslims and americans, as should all of you.

      Do you know what that is? A *HIGHER* standard. I expect more from Americans, than the same shit the terrorists are doing.

      Shouldn't you expect more from Americans than the bad guys also? Why are you trying to be more like the people you hate, rather than being above them morally?
      Why stoop to their level?

  • I wonder if the protests against Fox News will be as big as the protests against the Islamic community centre. Somehow I doubt it.

  • I know people who were there at ground zero the day this happened. They told me what they saw. The MSM doesn't show us the true horror and carnage of what these bastards did.

    It's ENTIRELY appropriate to educate the American people about where these innocent people had their body parts blown away from them.

    And, frankly, f*ck all you spineless, self-loathing cowards who aren't willing to stand up for yourselves, your communities and your country and stand up to the fanatics who did this and w More..

  • Hopefully this doesn't interfere with the underground mall they are building there. I want to go to this ever so sacred site and have a Cinnabun after I get some new sweaters at Banana Republic. I won't belch after my cinnamon treat though, because that would be disrespectful. May we never forget...

  • Whoever posted this, man, what a lame ass way to try and make a point. The Imam has been fucking busted by Fox, whether you like it or not. He says not bodies were found close by an that the site is not "ground zero proper" Well, this claim has been refuted. Facts are facts. I love how you pussies who disagree with Fox can't stop poohing your pants with hate, but have to actually agree that the points they are making are real.

  • The map is historical facts and should be published. How FOX uses those facts is their perogitive. How people interpret FOX's report, is theirs. What I want to know is; is this a mosque or a community center? A community center is not entitled to any religious protections. Will I be able to open a smoked pork sausage stand in front of the place or would they want me to move somewhere else, futher down the street?

  • If the "moderate" muslims showed even the slighest outrage at their "radical" muslims, I might be persaded in the name of tolerence. Sadly the "moderates" support the radicals so in my opinion they can go get fucked

    • Hey! You're absolutely right! It is the moderate muslims' fault for not standing up enough to the extremists in their midst! If those moderates did more to police their own, there wouldn't be any terrorism.

  • just so you know exactly what it means to own 7% of Newscorp. That means you get 7% of the $$$.

    This is the $$$ from the first few months of last year.


    May 6, 2009 ... News Corporation, which owns several newspapers, reported $7.4 billion in revenue in the first three months of this year, down from $8.8 ...


    7% of 7.4 BILLION in the first 3 months of the year is almosst 520 Million dollars in 3 months. That is how much this muslim, the one fox refuses to identify will probably make in 3 mont More..

  • Since 9/11, one has to simply ponder the lives of innocent Muslims dying as a result of US occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan. Things are worse than they were before.

    • @phreaking Yeah, we miss the WTC too. It's sad when religion makes the world the very picture of hell. It's worse when that religion is completely contrived.

      On the other hand, the new Disney "Dirty Little Desert" theme park is coming along nicely. Pop a Krispy Kreeme up, maybe a Starbucks and an Orange Julius and you too can have a wondrous and majestic castle of terror in the most crowded areas of either of these countries.

    Hilarious that they can read a numberplate from a satellite but they can't find him.... in the meantime the US has murdered a lot more than 3,000 innocent people trying to get him though haven't they.
