Ah. A quick scan of what Paul Foot is all about shows him to be a journo who is hell bent of finding conspiracy in local and national government and big coorperations.
This guy doesn't go out to find facts, he sets out to find and fan the flames of conspiracies.
Anyone can do that if that is the angle they preffer. All they have to do is publish and article saying something contoversial and people like Butch will spread this theory as proven fact. The up-shot being that the Big Brother viewer mentality that is infecting our society, end up making the myth bigger than the reality!
