Troofer Media Panel Without Troof
This is a media panel at the recent WTC-7 conference in Hartford. The panel is mostly notable for not discussing the 9-11 attacks in any serious fashion; instead they talk about their own personal conspiracy theories, and how the fact that the media won't cover those stories is the same as the problem facing the "Truthers".
One of the panelists authored (with Robert Kennedy, Jr.) the ridiculous Rolling Stone article claiming that Bush stole Ohio in 2004. I covered that story a long time ago on my politics blog. Relevant passage:
And that's where Kennedy's claim is exposed for the nonsense that it is. You see, these really are rural counties so the idea of shaking an 80,000 vote swing out of them is contrived. Bush got 382,000 votes in those counties, so we reduce that to 302,000. And we up Kerry's 168,000 to 248,000. So Bush got 54.9% in those twelve counties, as compared to his 67.4% the prior election a 12.5 percentage point decline in Bush's share of the major party vote in those twelve counties between 2000 and 2004. How does that stack up with the rest of Ohio? Well, actually Bush didn't lose 12.5 percentage points compared to 2000 in any other county. His worst performance was about a 5 percentage point drop.
I kind of enjoy the ditzy blonde newsbabe; note that she gets her biggest applause when she says something about how someone told her that in order for the conspiracy to succeed, Americans have to be the stupidest people on the planet.
