Far-Left Celebrity Russell Brand Is 'Open' to 9/11 Trutherism

Liberal celebrity Russell Brand on Thursday announced he's "open" to the idea that the United States government may have been behind the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks. Talking to a British reporter, Brand theorized, "Do you trust the American government? Do you trust the British government? What I do think is very interesting is the relationship that the Bush family have had for a long time with the Bin Laden family." 

Pressed on the issue, the comedian declared, "We have to remain open-minded to any kind of possibility." It was just October 13, 2014 that Today anchor Matt Lauer lauded the celebrity's "big thoughts on big issue." Co-host Tamron Hall gushed over Brand's "thought-provoking" opinions. 

MSNBC executives hired 9/11 truther Toure to host a show on their cable network. 

ABC executives hired 9/11 truther Rosie O'Donnell to co-host The View. On October 7, 2014, O'Donnell blamed the United States for creating ISIS. 

These same executives also hired anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist Jenny McCarthy to co-host The View.  

Although media professionals often like to link conservatives to conspiracy theories, they seem to have no problem embracing (or hiring) liberals who subscribe to weird beliefs.
