9/11 Conspiracy Theories Dissected on Channel 4 Tonight

A source at WTMJ-TV (Channel 4) informs us that “Live at 10:00” will have a segment tonight that will take a close look at the “9-11 Truth” movement and will be talking to two of its members — including Kevin Barrett, the controversial lecturer who is slated to teach the history of Islam at Madison this fall.

The focus will not be on the controversy surrounding Barrett and the University of Wisconsin, but rather on the movement itself, and its beliefs.

We’ll most certainly be watching.

We’ll see whether Barrett does better than he did last night on Hannity and Colmes.

[Update:]

We just finished watching the segment, which was brief (about 3 ½ minutes), but good. The “highlight” was Barrett explaining that the Osama bin Laden seen in a video admitting to planning the attacks was really an impostor.

Mick Trevey, who hosted the segment and conducted the interviews, took our class about the JFK assassination when he was at Marquette, and therefore knows how to critically scrutinize conspiracy theories.
