9/11 in the media

Leading up to the 5 year mark of the attacks on the World Trade Center, we've had Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004), Flight 93 (2006) and this summer Oliver Stone's World Trade Center retelling experiences from 9/11. On September 10th, CBS is scheduled to air an updated version of an award-winning 9/11 documentary, first aired in 2002.

Worth a second look (or perhaps a first) is the New York Times best-seller, The 9/11 Commission Report, published by the Government Printing Office in 2004. A print copy is available in the Government Publications Library along with many other documents relating to the September 11th terrorist attacks.

The Library of Congress houses the American Folklife Center's The September 11, 2001, Documentary Project, a collection of reactions, eyewitness accounts, and diverse opinions of Americans and others in the months that followed the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93. The online presentation includes almost 200 audio and video interviews, 45 graphic items, and 21 written narratives.
