Jesse Ventura: MSNBC Tried to Shut Me Up
We had Jesse Ventura on the show yesterday to talk about his new book, American Conspiracies. He had a lot of interesting theories, such as the possibility that John Lennon was killed by the CIA (to be fair that was by far his most speculative one, watch the whole interview here).
I’m not sure I believe all of those theories, but there is some underlying truth in many of them, especially in how corporate interests have worked with the US government and military to further their financial interests throughout our history.
When it came to the topic of the media though, Gov. Ventura had an inside look on a conspiracy that was out in the open – MSNBC’s effort to shut down all voices against the Iraq War. The way they took Phil Donahue and Ashleigh Banfield off the air because of their views on the Iraq War is well documented. Now, Ventura explains his experience with MSNBC at the time:
