PROFESSIONAL conspiracy debunkers are having a field day as ridiculous conspiracy theories about the Boston terrorist chaos burble up from the depths of the internet.
There's the man who was pictured standing on the roof at Boston. There are ridiculous, MS Paint-style infographics of Michelle Obama visiting Saudi nationals in hospital. There's a viral image of a 'suspect' caught on CCTV who has absolutely nothing to do with the Boston bombings. And what happened to that naked man?
Many of these theories are rooted in ideas posted on social media hubs such as Facebook and Reddit, in the comments sections of blogs and from the zany brainwaves of some of America's most prolific conspiracy theorists, like Alex Jones, who runs Infowars.com from his home office.
But there's a twist. There are reports today that the terrorist bombers themselves may have been inspired by web conspiracy theories such as Mr Jones'.

The only people I ever hear or see talk about Alex Jones today are "professional debunkers", internet trolls & bullies.
I don't remember the last time I saw someone reference Alex Jones, other than as a means for character assassination, or "pulled out of nowhere" as a way to somehow discredit a completely unrelated topic, by "associating" the debaters with Alex Jones.
Often times no one even addresses the person, they seemingly talk to an invisible audience, posting their trollish nonsense as everyone else around them goes about their business.
This comes as no surprise from me.
