Le Argumentum Ad Web Populum?

A French minister (for Housing and Urban Affairs) has come out in favor of 9-11 Denial. But she cites a very odd reason:

In it, however, Boutin goes on to clearly explain why she might hold this view. It's because, she says, of the numerous Web sites on which "masses" of ordinary citizens, in a serious manner, have been asking and continue to ask questions and to present evidence related to 9/11 that may lead one to doubt the established, media account of the events. Boutin says: "I know that the sites that speak of this problem are the sites that have the greatest numbers of visits....And so, I tell myself, I who am extremely the new techniques of information and communication, that this expression of the mass of the people cannot be without any truth."
