Dept of Non-News

Why exactly is the WSJ publishing stories of conspiracy theories. It details an email being circulating in Pakistan about how the Mumbai Attacks were actually planned by Indians and Jews.

This falls in the same league as people questioning the 9/11 attacks as being perpetrated by the CIA, or how the Moon Landings were faked by NASA, or how the Taj Mahal is an ancient structure built by some Hindu king.

There will always be crazies and consipary  theorists, but do they need a respected newspaper giving them an audience.
