So what are the chances that this will change TSORon's view that "Mr. Corbett's fantasy video is nothing more or less than a complete falsehood"?

The commentary that Mr. Corbett provides is the only proof offered that he actually either went through a WBI system or that he got through with the items he claims. That’s it. No actual video of his passing through the WBI, no proof that he was carrying anything even if he did, and no proof that if he actually was carrying something as claimed that it was not caught and examined by the TSO’s. No “beef” what-so-ever.
IOW, its smoke and mirrors, all of it. But, he did get something out of it. Thousands of hits to his web site, his name in most major newspapers, and of course the 30 to 40 people who actually are willing to try and test his theories into a much different situation than he promised. Which of course will also be TSA’s fault, since they can do nothing right. [/sarcasm]

Could someone explain to me how this makes it through and I can't even without anything in my pockets and in clothes which have previously had no issues?
And no, "The scanner randomly makes up anomalies based on nothing" is not an answer.
Metal doesn't reflect. The backscatter imaging is based on reflectivity, not absorption - so objects that do not reflect and are not occluding a reflection are lost in the background, like a black cat on a black velour couch.
