Not long ago, the BBC ran a series of programmes called The Conspiracy Files
Each one examined the conspiracies around events, then calmly, rigorously examined the evidence and cut them to shreds.
The one on Loose Change
was probably the best of the bunch.
We got to meet the film makers.
Ugh! A vile, rude, snotty kid was their public face, he was however given room to speak, which not surprisingly was more than enough to hang himself with.
When politely asked to explain some of the many huge gaping holes in the whole premise behind Loose Change
, he spat insults and sulked.
There were some points which should be of note, since they are so elementary.
Such as the notion that the fate of UA93 was dubious because debris from the crash was found miles from the site, now such an impact would throw debris, but 6 miles? Of course the authorities were covering it up, weren't they?
The answer was simple, the filmmakers had measured the distances by using an Internet map which measured distance by the surrounding roads
Including ones which snaked around the whole area.
The real distances, as the crow files, were just as reported by the authorities.
The above only illustrates a minor point, but I think it shows just how lazy and amateurish the makers of Loose Change
Mind you, I don't buy any of the JFK
I note even Oliver Stone, who loudly claim that his movie JFK
was basically accurate at the time, now refers to it as a re-imaging
of the event.
Magic bullet? What magic bullet? Check out how the seats in the limo actually were, how JFK
and Connolly were sitting neither directly behind each other, nor even on the same level.
One bullet could and did inflict those controversial wounds.
People just assume the limos seating was essentially the same as their station wagon.
, 'Faked Moon landings', Diana, all fail what I call the Watergate Test
How a US President, at the height of his powers, was brought down by a chain of events, starting with that tawdry break in, which very few people were party to.
As in a handful of individuals.
What about all the other 'conspircies' that would need a cast of thousands, or at least many hundreds?
