Unless the mainstream media version of a story is supported by objective evidence, we cannot presume it is accurate. If there are other theories with better evidence and logic behind them, they may indeed be more accurate. In many cases we just won’t ever get enough facts to know for sure. Each faction denounces others for peddling conspiracy theories. Conspiracy theories include the lie there were WMD in Iraq and that Al Qaida was in cahoots with Saddam, or the made-up tale the Michael Cohen met in Prague to seal a deal for Russia to collude with Trump, or that Donald Trump Jr. received an email from Wikileaks on September 4. These are conspiracy theories that are demonstrably false. The “Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself “ conspiracy theory is not demonstrably false. It may not be true either. The fact is that it has lot of suspicious elements. In the end, we may have to admit we just don’t know.
