Like many others, I stood in front of my TV that morning and tried to make sense of what was happening. It eventually occurred to me to put a tape in the VCR and start recording. I decided I wanted a record of how the different news outlets presented the events of that day.

From 11:12 am CST until about 9:53 pm I recorded different channels. I’ve included timecode that closely corresponds to the actual time of the broadcast.

It is my hope that people will appreciate this account in it’s historical perspective: how 24 hour news networks presented the events, the timing of new information, the chaos and emotions, and the rush to determine the culprits.

I ask that viewers be involved in helping me make the important moments more accessible to others by providing timecode links in the comments. I will then take these and add them to this description.
