In response to Chez Pazienza’s piece on RT journalist Abby Martin being a 9/11 Truther, Martin got back to The Daily Banter with the following statement:
“I stand by the fact that we were lied to about 9/11, which even the commission members themselves agree with. However I don’t believe it was an inside job and it’s embarrassing to see people call themselves journalists using a six year old video to smear me and conflate statements I made at a rally with my risking my job to speak out about Crimea.”
While Martin is a vehement critic of the US government and its foreign policy, in recent years she has moved away from the more extreme elements of the 9/11 truth movement. Here she is talking about conspiracy theories and how dangerous they can be back in March of 2013:
Ben Cohen is the editor and founder of The Daily Banter. He lives in Washington DC where he does podcasts, teaches Martial Arts, and tries to be a good father. He would be extremely disturbed if you took him too seriously.
