In a year that has seen truTV reach new heights in popularity, the network scored another triumph Wednesday night with the premiere of its original series CONSPIRACY THEORY WITH JESSE VENTURA. The premiere episode was watched by 1.6 million viewers, truTV’s biggest audience ever for a new series launch.
Since you’re delving into sensitive subjects, did you get any pressure from people involved who said that you shouldn’t be poking your nose into this stuff?
No they didn’t really do that. Our U.S. government wouldn’t cooperate in any way, shape or form at all. Nothing. And I found that to be the most disturbing thing, the fact that apparently in our country today you’re not allowed to ask a question of your government and expect to get an answer from them. Apparently they feel they don’t have to give answers.
When you wrapped up your investigations, were you able to come to any conclusions?
They’re all left open. First of all, we don’t have enough [power] to get the answers. We have no subpoena power. We can’t put anyone under oath with the threat of perjury or anything like that, so we really have to rely on cooperation, and of course the government doesn’t cooperate. But you’ll find most of the conspiracy people love to cooperate because they simply want to be heard and tell their story, so naturally we levitate more toward them. Initially when we did the show, we were going to show both sides and allow you to pick which one you wanted to believe. But when one side won’t cooperate, it evolved into simply telling the conspiracy side. Can we find the truth and the answers. Not necessarily, but we do ask great questions that’ll make people think. And we do show enough evidence to back up what we’re saying.
So when all is said and done, do you voice an opinion as to which side you lean toward?
Yeah, most definitely. I do at the end of every show. I won’t tell to you now because I want you to watch.

Can this episode be found on Hulu or another online TV source? I don't watch cable.

What a terrible show. I think the two worst parts were the camera "failing" while they were at the gate. That was obviously fake and added in post production. And then the bit at the end about the "mind control." All they demonstrated was bone conduction, which uses physical vibrations transmitted through the cranial bones to the inner ear. That has nothing at all to do with HAARP and electromagnetic radiation.

Even if somebody knew nothing about HAARP at all, simply by watching that one episode, many questions are raised in the viewer's mind.
