In yet another episode of the media spreading misinformation, several news outlets have misconstrued Spike Lee's recent claim that fires could not have melted the WTC steel, suggesting Lee is wrong because the steel didn't need to melt for the buildings to collapse.

This is clear-cut evidence of the use of thermite in the destruction of the World Trade Center towers.
