Many conspiracy theorists pride themselves on having inside information, but in the case of Ebola such alleged information, or misinformation — the government is in on it! — can erode the public trust when it’s needed most.
“If these were just opinions that people spouted off on talk radio or at dinner parties, you could argue that there wasn’t much harm,” Professor Broderick said. “But to have the C.D.C. debased in public as a puppet of the New World Order or of major corporations is obviously a dangerous proposition.”
Nonetheless, some scholars find value in conspiracy theories because they allow us to vent and give voice to hidden fears.

We haven't uncovered any truth behind 9/11, ebola, WMDs jkf, mlk aliens reptilians or whatever, we are passionate, we research, we speculate, but when it's time to bring anything concrete to the table...that table is empty.

There are plenty of conspiracies that have been unraveled by the public. Watergate, Iran-Contra, Operation Paperclip, and the prohibition of drugs all come to mind.
