MSNBC Anchor and 9/11 Truther Toure Denies He's a 9/11 Truther
MSNBC anchor Toure on Wednesday insisted that he was not a 9/11 truther, despite having several tweets indicating otherwise. After being confronted on Twitter, the Cycle anchor denied, "But I am not so there's that."
However, he has previously tweeted, "How could a plane crash into the Pentagon? And not appear on video cameras?? And leave little wreckage??? #Don'tbuyitfiremenow." Another Tweet from 2009 featured a paranoid video claiming that the Pentagon was hit by a missile: "This fascinating video raises questions about the Pentagon attack: 757 or missle [sic]? http://bit.ly/12AOlN"
On the subject of Van Jones, a former green jobs czar whose name appeared on a truther website, Toure once tweeted, "Van Jones was forced to resign partly bc questions the truth of 9/11 but that Pentagon attack is really fishy..."
Go here for pictures of all of Toure's truther tweets.
Toure may have changed belief in a conspiracy that blames George W. Bush for murdering 3000 Americans, but that doesn't alter the facts. He has tweeted pro-truther beliefs.
So, the question is: when did he change his mind and why? Additionally, what does Toure's employer, MSNBC, have to say about this?
