Skip to comments.AP Describes Controlled-Demolition Wacko as 'Scholar' and 'Sept. 11 Theorist'

Ah, the refined sensibilities of the Associated Press. Far be it from that paragon of journalistic impartiality to insert itself in the controversy over whether George Bush & Co. intentionally murdered thousands of Americans on 9-11 via the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center.
And so it is that AP entitled its article about the decision of 9-11 conspiracy nut Steven Jones to retire from his BYU professor's post:
"BYU Scholar, Sept. 11 Theorist, Resigns".
A "scholar" and a "theorist." Impressive! Might that be some kind of hybrid between a 'gentleman and a scholar' and a theoretical physicist, perhaps? Now, in fairness, I wouldn't expect the AP to adopt my "conspiracy whack job" nomenclature in its headline - although it would be entirely accurate. But the utter neutrality of "theorist" coupled with the honorary title of "scholar" seems excessive. Would the AP describe David Duke as a "racial theorist," for example?
I think AP could and should have found a way to communicate in its headline the extreme controversiality of Jones' views. Something, perhaps, along the lines "9-11 Controversialist Retires From BYU Post".
Those wanting to see for themselves just how "out there" the good ex-professor is can check the web site of "Scholars for 9/11 Truth," the organization he founded to promote his lunacy.
The steel did not have to melt, only be weakened by higher temperatures than it was ever meant to take under load, coupled with the structural damage done by the impact of a fully loaded airliner.
Perjoratives aside, how exactly did that happen?
I will refrain from using perjoratives. I will, however exercise my right to use a pejorative and say, "What other idiotic theories do you believe, and how did you ever make it to adulthood listening to a bunch of crackpots and social outcasts?"
Fake but accurate?
We'll be sitting around for some time waiting for a response.
Sleeper Troll Alert!
This kook is seen as a hero over on Liberty Post.
What irony... everyone responding to a comment #7 that was zotted..judging from the excerpts, glad I missed it.

Sweet. Another Troll Bites the dust.
I believe this statement is a lie.
"I believe this statement is a lie."
You are correct. The person who made that comment got nuked.
The definitive investigation in which all the 9-11 Truth theories hit the dust for good...The Popular Mechanics article. Read this for the debunking.
good site for debunking......
anyone who thinks this was a controlled demo should have their wooden heads examined......
