The Huffington Post removed a 9/11 "Truther" post from former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura. According to their editor's note, "The Huffington Post's editorial policy, laid out in our blogger guidelines, prohibits the promotion and promulgation of conspiracy theories...." Oh, really? Because today, the very same Huffington Post published this wonderful post from dangerous nutcase Jenny McCarthy about how autism is caused by vaccines and can be cured with experimental treatments that the established medical community doesn't want you to know about. We can only assume that as soon as the editors discover this conspiratorial nonsense, they will promptly remove it. The fun thing about Jenny McCarthy's conspiracy is that if it catches on enough, it will literally lead to the death of children. Trutherism just makes you really annoying!It's not only Huffington Post who gives the former Playboy playmate lip service, ABC News was willing to seek a medical opinion from her. Even if you disagree with Ventura's claims on 9/11 (and I am in that camp), Ventura is not saying he is qualified to dispense an engineering analysis, or even claiming he is 100% right about his conclusions.

Jesse Ventura has worn many hats over his lifetime. In addition to being a body-slamming professional wrestler and one-term governor of Minnesota, he was a Navy SEAL in Vietnam and a bodyguard for the Rolling Stones. In his latest career move, he is a conspiracy theory investigator.
His television show, Conspiracy Theory With Jesse Ventura, premiered on TruTV in early December delivering the 17-year-old channel’s largest-ever premiere audience — 1.6 million people — and maintaining it during subsequent episodes. It held onto high Nielsen ratings despite being panned by critics because the masses love it. TruTV’s slogan is “Not Reality. Actuality.” This is a baffling mantra, but it’s the perfect place for a show like Ventura’s.
“We developed it for our audience,” one that is “usually fascinated with inside worlds they don’t normally have access to,” said Darren Campo, senior vice president of programming at the channel.
HAARP is a scientific endeavor aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes...

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has revealed that he was effectively silenced for three years by MSNBC when the network cancelled his show in 2003 after learning that Ventura opposed the war in Iraq.
Ventura began the MSNBC show, Jesse Ventura’s America, in October 2003.
The show was originally planned to run five nights a week, but MSNBC executives suddenly changed their minds and it was only broadcast once a week, on Saturdays, before being ditched altogether.
The ex-Navy SEAL has now told the LA Times that he was forced out of the network and prevented from appearing on any other cable TV or news shows.
“It was awful. I was basically silenced.” Ventura comments in the interview.
“When I came out of office, I was the hottest commodity out there. There was a bidding war between CNN, Fox and MSNBC to get my services. MSNBC ultimately won.
