Why do you assume people who do not believe that 9/11 was an inside job are blithering idiots who watch terrible tv shows? I for one do believe it was..but to make a blanket statement that anyone who doesn't is some sort of lesser in the knowledge department seems a tad presumptuous to me.
McClellan Tell-All Exposes Media's Propaganda Problem
The country is buzzing today over a tell-all book by former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan. In his explosive memoir, McClellan reveals that the Bush administration ran a "political propaganda campaign" to mislead the American public on the war in Iraq.
Make Mainstream Media Answer for Spreading Propaganda
In his explosive new memoir, former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan reveals that the mainstream media played a prominent role in "enabling" pro-war propaganda: The mainstream media didn't live up to its watchdog reputation, McClellan writes. "If it had, the country would have been better served."

The fact is they are screaming their heads off as we speak, not everyone is out to make money on the government conspiracy theory. To say there is no conspiracy theory about 911 is ignorant in its self. Moreover, it shows you have never done any research on the subject on the internet.
I do not know what kind of sites you go to, but there are hundreds of sites that offer scientific proof, and very well research materials, and Gov documents that have been released under the freedom of information that 911 was an inside job without promoting or selling of books, or a DVD.
I do however believe that you've been taken in by a lot of internet rubbish, and these con artists selling t-shirts, baseball caps, decals etc aren't exactly disproving it, so if you have something concrete, then I'd certainly like to see it.

I see, so, you are saying that most of the truthers who disagree with the government reports concerning the 911cover –up that uh, we lack the common sense, and intelligent, and a poor ability in researching factual scientific findings, that these people must have a second grade reading level, and an IQ below 70.
Please, go back to my original post and point out to me where I ever said "truthers have a second grade reading level and an IQ below 70". I never said any such thing as I do not subscribe to the claim.
What I DID say is that...
...there are people claiming the towers were destroyed by controlled demolitions, and the fact that there are people claiming the towers were destroyed by controlled demolitionsis undeniable.
...there are people claiming the towers were destroyed by laser beams from outer space, and the fact that there are people claiming the towers were destroyed by laser beams from outer space is also undeniable.
...there are people who deny there ever were even any planes that hit the towers, and the fact that there are people who deny there ever were even any planes that hit the towers is undeniable.
...a lot of "investigate 9/11" web sites are selling t-shirts, baseball caps, decals, etc to make a quick buck off the 9/11 debacle, and the fact that there are a lot of "investigate 9/11" web sites are selling t-shirts, baseball caps, decals, etc to make a quick buck off the 9/11 debacle is undeniable.
Which means that the carnival atmosphere among the truthers is indeed detracting from the credibility of the truther movement, and the fact that the carnival atmosphere among the truthers is indeed detracting from the credibility of the truther movement is likewise undeniable. All this "second grade reading level" bit of yours is entirely non sequitor.
To make such a statement in the above that you quoted, shows how desperate you are in to believing the OS. It really amasses me, that you “believe” educated people cannot tell the different from a web site spinning lies, and making money, and yellow journalisms, to reading creditable, well research scientific documents that have proved the government lied to the American people about 911.
Ah, you mean like how educated people couldn't tell the difference between Bernie Madhoff's funds and a ponzi scheme?
Education has nothing to do with it. It's entirely dependent on how slick the sales pitch is, and the slick sales pitch from these 9/11 websites to get you to believe what they want you to believe would make Josef Goebbels proud. I will happily show as much evidence of this as you'd like to you too, if you wish.
