WikiLeaks/Michael Hastings Conspiracy Theory Open Thread
June 20, 2013 - 8:33 pm
So what is WikiLeaks trying to say with this Tweet? Is it simply priming us for a revelation about why Hastings was being investigated? Or is it trying to imply that there’s some link between Hastings contacting Jennifer Robinson and the journalist’s death? If so, we might have – in the words of Michael Moynihan – a peg for yet another kind of truther.
I ran into about ten people who were talking about this today. It certainly beats another “Is the NBA fixed?” discussion (I say it mostly is). And, hey, now that paranoia has gone mainstream, it doesn’t seem implausible.
Thoughts, good people?
