1. Loose Change Debunked

    I’ve been watching over the last year as the viral video phenomenon Loose Change has spread across the globe.

    When the video first came out I found myself drawn to it simply because it posed questions that I myself have thought after watching the events of 9/11 unfold. However, after awhile I started suspect the video was simply a hoax or perhaps a “test” video where some smart individual had thrown a bunch of circumstantial evidence into a video format in order to see how many people would fall for it.

    After a few months of seeing the video being passed by person to person I became a little disgusted with the entire project. Even though my experience with  critial thinking and research is limited, I know enough of the basics to know that this video is complete trash.

    In a recent interview with Democracy Now! the authors of Loose Change, Dylan Avery, Jason Bermas, and two Popular Mechanics magazine editors James Meigs, David Dunbar creators of the book Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can’t Stand Up to the Facts met with Amy Goodman to discuss their viewpoints on 9/11. The interview is available on both audio and video and shows some very telling things about both Jason and Dylan and their video but also shows the difference between seasoned researchers like James Meigs and David Dunbar and the Loose Change boys.

    I’d recommend both the book and the interview to anyone who has friends that are convinced that Loose Change is a scientific based documentary on 9/11. After reading the book and seeing the immaturity of these two boys in the video I feel that many people will change their opinions on the film.
