I'm sitting here at 00:15 watching This Week
, a light hearted political
programme on BBC1. They are discussing why conspiracy theorists seem to persist even when the truth is divulged, the theory debunked.
The BBC are also running a series of documentaries called The Conspiracy Files
which attempts to debunk, sorry, investigate conspiracies which have proved very popular amongst the masses.
Is it me or are the Beeb trying a little too hard to sway popular opinion?
One of the examples given by the presenter of This Week
was a man who claimed the CIA had planted an atomic bomb in the WTC, and that had
caused the destruction, wasn't one of you guys was it.......?
A rather narrow example of the conspiracy community I feel the BBC are trying to portray.
Is the witch hunt going to turn from terrorist to theorist, will it prove unpopular for the masses to even consider the idea of questioning if they
are going to be mocked in the street and called names like "Theorist" and abused with "CT go home".
Why are the Beeb suddenly giving the Theorists air time?
What reason could they possibly have for tarring all theorists as nuts?
Me reckons they are on a damage limitation exercise, post accusations of the preempting the collapse of WTC 7, amongst other things.
