I’m trying to figure out what to make of AOL’s decision to feature on its Welcome Page, the news item, Skeptics Seek ‘9/11 Truth’. Are they doing this to show how loony some of these people are — or because they too believe that under President Bush, the government “would plan, then execute, a scheme to murder thousands of its own“? Do AOL’s editors, like these conspiracy theorists believe that “the motive for faking a terrorist attack was to allow the administration ‘to instantly implement policies its members have long supported, but which were otherwise infeasible.’“
To be sure, such gatherings of fringe figures make interesting news, so I’m guessing AOL wanted to spotlight their silliness. But, sometimes I wonder, given the bias of AOL headlines in general, if some of their editors actually believe this nonsense.
(If the AOL link doesn’t work for you, try this one.)
