Joy Reid’s old blog is filled with all kinds of surprises. A bunch of anti-gay content was recently discovered, which Reid claimed she didn’t write. Now, it has been revealed that she promoted a 9/11 truther film.
Joy Reid Promoted An Infamous 9/11 Conspiracy Documentary On Her Old Blog
MSNBC host Joy Reid encouraged readers of her now-defunct blog to watch an infamous 9/11 conspiracy documentary, according to recently discovered posts shared with BuzzFeed News.
A March 22, 2006, post to her weblog, Reidblog, archived by the Wayback Machine and titled “The official story,” links to Loose Change 9/11, a viral 80-minute web video originally released in 2005. Loose Change, which was produced in part by Infowars’ Alex Jones, alleged that the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center were in fact planned by the US government. The central claims in Loose Change have been widely debunked.
“The fundamental question is: do you believe the official story of 9/11?” the post reads. “If you do, great. If you don’t, then everything that happened after that is called into serious question. Even if you’re agnostic, or you tend to believe that al-Qaida attacked the World Trade Center and Pentagon and that the government had no warning such a thing could happen, it’s worth taking a second look.”
Neither Reid nor MSNBC responded to requests for comment.
What crazy finds does Reid’s old blog hold for the future?
