The Early Internet & 9/11 Conspiracies – Jordan Klepper Fingers the Conspiracy

Jordan Klepper has heard a lot of 9/11 conspiracy theories at Trump rallies, including this shiny emerald: Osama bin Laden was a CIA operative named Tim Ossman. Together with Dr. Joan Donovan, research director of Harvard’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy, Jordan unpacks how the early days of the internet and social media have shaped 9/11 conspiracy theories that are still popping up in more places than rallies two decades later. They are joined by veteran and filmmaker Korey Rowe who co-produced “Loose Change,” one of the first viral conspiracy theory films on 9/11. They discuss the legacy of the film, how the right wing has weaponized conspiracy theories for political gain, and what conversations we should be having about the role of the media. #DailyShow #JordanKlepper #Podcast More Jordan Klepper Fingers the Conspiracy: Watch full episodes: Listen wherever you get your podcasts: Subscribe to The Daily Show: Follow The Daily Show: Twitter: Facebook: Instagram: Stream full episodes of The Daily Show on Paramount+: Follow Comedy Central: Twitter: Facebook: Instagram: About The Daily Show: Trevor Noah and The Daily Show correspondents tackle the biggest stories in news, politics and pop culture.
