Jonathan Kay will be discussing his new book, Among the Truthers: A Journey Through America's Growing Conspiracist Underground. Mr. Kay follows conspiracy theorists of all stripes, including our favorites, the birthers.
Jonathon Kay quotes Vincent Bugliosi in a recent article:
“The conspiracy community regularly seizes on one slip of the tongue, misunderstanding or slight discrepancy to defeat 20 pieces of solid evidence; accepts one witness of theirs, even if he or she is a provable nut, as being far more credible than 10 normal witnesses on the other side; treats rumours, even questions, as the equivalent of proof; leaps from the most minuscule of discoveries to the grandest of conclusions; and insists, as the late lawyer Louis Nizer once observed, that the failure to explain everything perfectly negates all that is explained.”
— Vincent Bugliosi, from Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
