Am I looking too deeply into this or were they making a statement? I think the latter. That's brilliant on their part by the way. They can't be called "nutjobs" because they can just say they were making a joke. Meanwhile they're listing a bunch of evidence plus websites for people to read.
I wish they did a little more about WTC 7 but still that was heroic. I'm pretty sure The Onion has HUGE readership.
