It probably doesn't help when that same archive will happily spit out thousands of pages supporting whatever nonsense you want to believe.
During his time on Conspiracy Road Trip, Charlie also met the husband of a stewardess who served aboard Flight 77. He showed him that conspiracies aren't merely harmless entertainment, the digital equivalent of people-watching. They hurt people. "He sat me down next to her memorial, this limestone water feature in the grounds of the Pentagon ... and he took me aside for 20 minutes. He told me how much he loved his wife, how helpful the CIA and the FBI were ... and I told him what people believed in terms of the conspiracy, and he was so sad."
Some conversations should never have to happen at a memorial.
"What the conspiracy theory world does ... they really hurt victims of terrorist incidents. Say your wife's been killed by terrorists, and then the government and their agencies do everything they can to help you, to find the perpetrators ... and then for people to say that the very people who want to help you are the people who killed your wife. I wouldn't be able to cope with that."
It's only when Charlie met the people behind the tragedy that he understood them as grieving, hurt human beings, not soulless monsters.
Soulless monsters don't respond to conspiracy theories about their dead children with big comforting hugs.
"I don't know how much money the BBC spent. A lot of money ... and that's what it took to change my mind. I had to have a massive media organization cherry pick me, take me to the CIA, to the Pentagon, speak to the architects. There were five of us, and I was the only one who changed my mind. Even if you take someone around the world and tell them the truth, only about 20 percent of people will change their minds."
The other 80 percent will go straight to the comments section. Have fun!
