  3. Love the Elvis cover, enjoyed the article. So where do you stand on the conspiracies contained therein?

  4. If I was to reveal that, wouldn't I lose all credibility as an objective journalist?

    Wait, what am I talking about? Journalists aren't objective. I'm pretty in the grey about most conspiracy theories. I didn't even realize a lot of the things I believe politically could be considered "conspiracy theories" until I went in to interview Whyte.

    I do not, however, believe Suri Cruise is the daughter of Hubbard.

  5. Objective Journalism? I live in the United States where Objective Journalism died a quick and painless death sometime during the Clinton Administration. Watching the infotainment on Faux News has replaced any semblance of real journalism for the 25% of the schmucks in this country who still think George Bush the Boy King is the bestest president EVER!

    See, the thing about 9-11 is that it WAS a conspiracy no matter how you look at it. It was either (a) a conspiracy of 19 jihadi hijackers or (b) a conspiracy of governmental insiders. Either way, it was a conspiracy. I find it odd that the word conspiracy, in and of itself, now has some sort of dog-whistle subtext associated with it.

  6. I actually had a great quote from Richard Syrett, the radio guy, talking about that. He even got into the etomology of the word "conspiracy." Basically, he echoed your thoughts, rattling off a ton of things that could be considered "conspiracies." I completely agree with you.
