Esquire hit piece equates 9/11 Truth with Holocaust denial: "Why People Who Love Conspiracy Theories Are Part of the Problem"

Esquire magazine takes a stab at "conspiracy theorists" in a recent piece ostensibly intended to coincide with the release of Angels and Demons.

This article is so jam-packed with nonsense, it's a veritable Hit Pieces for Dummies. The by-line reads:

"The difference between the millions obsessed with Angels and Demons and the whack jobs denying 9/11 and the Holocaust says a lot about Obama's hopes for a new era of responsibility"

Check out the first paragraph, in which 9/11 Truth is equated with antisemitism, the moon landing, and the New World Order:

Esquire article repeats myth of "pancake" collapse

The April 2007 issue of Esquire contains an article about the WTC dust by Eric Gillin. It begins on page 133. Most of the article is about tests done on a backpack Gillin was wearing on 9/11 and had preserved since. Basically, the tests found that the initial dust cloud contained mostly gypsum and cement, while the more toxic dust was a product of computers and such burning in the pile of debris.

This description on page 141 repeats the myth of the pancake collapse: "When the South Tower came down, the massive concrete floors fell like a giant stack of pancakes, slamming into one another and driving the contents of the building straight down, but the air in the building blew out the sides, like a balloon popping when a fat man sits on it. The wind that the building exhaled was hurricane force, instantly aerating the drywall and the glass and some of the concrete, which coated me a few seconds later."
