A distracting liar, but a liar nonetheless

"First it is only obvious to the 4% of the population that follow the cult of Griffin & Co. that 9/11 was an inside job. The rest of the population looks for hard evidence and facts."

Exaggeration? Or just plain lying?

The 4% figure is very low, and your history on this site bears witness that you have been in enough 9/11 discussions (always on the government's side) to know it. God knows why you didn't give yourself more credibility by at least using Zogby's poll numbers that say more than 1/3 of the American people do not believe in the government's version and know that something very fishy went on on 9/11 that is being covered for. So, 4% shoots you in the left foot. (How does it feel?)

Shoot yourself in the right foot by saying/implying "the rest of the population (as in 96%) looks for hard evidence and facts."

Bullshit, and you also know it even if amended it to say "1/3 are Truthers and the rest (2/3) look for hard evidence and facts." Bullshit any way you amend it, further exposing yourself as a liar.

Why is it bullshit?

Because through 24/7 television with so many channels most people can't do a single round of channel surfing in an hour, American people are bombarded with distractions be they commercials or fluff shows ranging from American Idol, to Cheaters, to People's Court, to InfoTainment, Netflix, YouTube, porn.

We know that most Americans do not read newspapers regularly, do not follow news on the radio or television (with any depth or comprehension), do not even surf the Internet for news.

There are so many distractions to lure the attention of Americans away from weighty matters, there is no way in hell that you can say with a straight face that the rest of population -- be it 66% or 96% as originally implied -- looks for hard evidence and facts.

You are therefore a liar and part of the distraction so that the population doesn't look for hard evidence and facts.

Because if they (and you) did, they'd be singing a different tune about lots of things that really matter.
