two thirds of Americans believe in conspiracy theories

A newly released survey from Farleigh Dickinson University (FDU) finds that nearly two-thirds of Americans subscribe to at least one conspiracy theory. The national telephone poll questioned a randomly selected sample of 814 registered voters during December 2012. Each respondent was asked whether or not one of four conspiracies was “probably true” or “probably not true.” Respondents were also asked a series of four current events questions.

LOL the current events question is "what is the color of

Beyonce's hair?" (comment)

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Those are some mighty

Those are some mighty pointless questions about past events that may never be uncovered. How about some theories about what is happening and true right now?

Such as... the kill list (oh wait, that's admitted now), the US govt works with the terrorists (they openly fund Al Quaida's operations in other countries), plans to trample on the 2nd amendment (totally out in the open now), fluoride is toxic (university studies now confirm)...

Alex is occasionally out there on things I remain undecided on, but boy is he spot on with the process these conspiracies go through. First they laugh at you for thinking it's true, then when it all comes out they criticize you because you don't like it.

notice they don't show the questions

they call 'current event questions'.if the answer they call correct is false, then it is easy to skew the results and say whatever they want

I just followed the link in the article. The current events questions are:

(1) What is the name of the current Secretary of State?
(2) Which political party currently has a majority of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives?
(3) Has unemployment increased, decreased, or stayed the same over the last 12 months?
(4) In what country are most U.S. drone attacks concentrated?

Truth is the new hate speech
