Nico Haupt is widely known for coining the term "9/11 TV fakery" to describe a fringe 9/11 conspiracy theory that it was not American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 that flew into the World Trade Center towers during the September 11, 2001 attacks. Haupt's theory centers around the concept that some sort of digital image manipulation technology was employed to alter all major network news broadcasts showing the impact of UA 175 into World Trade Center 2 to create the impression that the object hitting the tower was a United airliner, when in his opinion it was not.
In Germany he was a supporter for the Chance 2000 political party of Christoph Schlingensief and hosted his radio show "Netzkraut".
In September 2001 Haupt creates the "9/11 Skeptics Ring", which should later turn into the so called '9/11 Truth Alliance' and then '9/11 Truth Movement'.
In early 2002 he creates the 9/11 Science + Justice Alliance, a loose list of Scientists, which later should pave the main thesis from which he says was plagiarized and misconstrued the so called mainstream 'Controlled Demolition' thesis.
In 2002 he was interviewed by Der Spiegel and vilified as a leading 911 conspiracy theorist.
His group also investigates on the thesis of Directed Energy Weapon Disintegration or Cold Fusion Weapons . This includes Jeff "Plaguepuppy" King from the M.I.T., who is researcher on unconventional weaponry, refers to the Twin Towers on 9/11. King is then invited as main speaker for a public 2004 event by milionaire Jimmy Walter who is campaigning for this on U.S. television. Haupt becomes one of the main advisors for Walter, also for this event.
Haupt states that he created the most projects for 9/11 research, PR and activism ever and also influenced and coined the so called 9/11 video mashup scene, which basically refers to the evidence on 9/11 tv fakery. In 2002 he co-produces the first U.S. TV show about 9/11 research, together with Sterling Rainbolt, called "Shadow Government TV".
In late 2003 he co-founds the first U.S. 9/11 media activist group, called ny911truth.org, from which later We Are Change was established.
Since 2004 he is in fight with what he describes as the so called "Orwellian 9/11 Truthlings" (a term coined by 9/11 researcher Gerard Holmgren). Haupt accuses the 9/11 Truth Movement as being heavily infiltrated at the top by U.S. Government Intelligence - and Cointelpro Elements, among them Alex Jones , , Les Jamieson (Urantia), Steven E. Jones (Los Alamos).
During 2007, Haupt turns into what he describes a Transgression Comedian and creates projects like 9/11 Stalker TV, nicointelpro and nicohitler, partly represented or performed in mainstream media, as on Howard Stern or New York Post.
His historical references to the 9/11 Truth Movement, from which he later distances himself, are widely ignored by what he calls 'establishment', among them also , which deletes their own entry about him after just 5 months. Another bio of Nico Haupt, established by researcher Tao, will be also ignored by the conventional team, which includes also their ignorance on related "no-planer" activists, artists, and researchers, many active for years or even since 2001, among them Killtown. During Summer 2007, Haupt looses both job and and apartment, after being falsely accused for allegedly harrassing 9/11 Victim Ellen Mariani, as stated by Andrea Peyser of the NY POST. , herself briefed by former ny911truth member John Albanese, who used to work for Victoria's Secret.
In late 2007, Haupt starts to co-operate with former new age icon paula gloria, who temporary 'gets punked' by the Howard Stern Show. He creates shows like 9/11 Stalker TV, Warren 12 Report or 9/11 TV Fu*kery, partly also shown on Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
In May 2008, "PrisonPlanet" questioned if he was paid to discredit the 9/11 truth movement or is simply a violently insane crank.
