sendtodave: KhamanV: Triumph: KhamanV: Probably they pulled it because it was pretty thoroughly debunked by the LA Times and the story is now the property of freeperville, Rense, and Infowars.

Nothing wrong with your conjecture, but It would be nice to know everything that happened in that episode. My memory of it is that the L.A. Times story consisted mostly of pointing out that Hunt's son was a former meth dealer, which is more along the lines of discrediting than debunking.

It would be interesting to have more footnotes on it, but yeah, Hunt was pretty far gone in dementia and the kids were milking him for stoner money.  Also, Barking, it's not the literal property sold.  The only major google hits for the story anymore are the conspiracy nuts.  Sure, it'd be pretty neat for this to be the time they've got something right.

"It seems that the LA Times were more discrediting the source than debunking the story."

"It seems that the sons were broke druggies, so there was no story."

...

It seems that it worked.


That's what they want you to believe

I wonder how efficient the private sector would be if it ran the way it claims to, as opposed to the way it actually does. Cronyism and nepotism are really just the tip of the iceberg.

The point is to get useful idiots on board to defend it. The strategy has been riotously successful.

FlashHarry: Kazaa: He's only in charge of the website.

hence the headline?


You know you're living in the future when your mind omits the ".com" and you assume that he's been put in charge of the whole company.
