Touré’s 9/11 truther tweet news to real journalist Piers Morgan; Updated

We’ve learned that Twitter is forever, whether tweets are deleted or not. This classic 2009 tweet from MSNBC host Touré resurfaced today and came as news to his fellow “real journalist,” CNN’s Piers Morgan.

We’re not so sure it “appears” to have been deleted, as a quick search easily turned up the original from 2009. To give Touré the benefit of the doubt, he only called the 2007 conspiracy video “fascinating,” the same way that we might say it’s fascinating that Touré actually has his own cable news show. No such benefit of the doubt was extended from pro reporter Morgan, though.


Ouch! When Piers Morgan calls you out on being a conspiracy theorist, it might be time to go back and clean up that Twitter timeline. Could racism somehow be to blame? Stay tuned!


There was more than that one tweet calling the Truther video fascinating. Charles C. Johnson listed three Truther tweets in this post.

      Fire him now? Heh, sounds like good advice

    • Tom Bannigan

      Some one should explain frames per second and all that.

  • Revere

    Hey now–he’s a legitimate journalist.


  • Yeah I Said It

    Question Sandy hook? Conspiracy theory.
    Question Benghazi? Obsessed.
    Question 9/11? Fascinating.

    Don’t forget this one.

    • J. Cox

      You would have to add the verified checkmark to make that look real.

      • Zefal

        He posted this back in 2009.

    • Richard Jefferies

      Science is hard for Toure

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Republican crackers are capable of anything to advance their insidious agenda of unicorn racism and healthcare free of govt control.

    • Zefal

      You need to do better than that to run interference for Toure 9/11 truther boy.

      • TocksNedlog

        YOU need to do a better job of picking up on sarcasm without the aid of a /sarc tag.

        • Zefal

          Sorry. A lot of people don’t pick up on my sarcastic posts either so it’s only fair that I do the same to others. 😉

      Would think you would be more patriotic, since you use a name that was used by John Wayne in his movie McLintock. He was a patriot

        He’s on our side; it’s a joke mocking what some liberals seem to believe about us.

        • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

          Have to remember that.

    • George Washington Mclintock

      Fellas, if my comment history and the phrases “Unicorn Racism” and “healthcare freeof govt. control” didn’t tip you off to what I was going for; I can’t help you.

  • webnetcity

    You know what I find fascinating Toure’ and Piers?
    I think you’re both just a bunch of…


  • Fernandida

    both toure and morgan need to just disappear into the sunset.

    • Spatial Awareness

      I can think of a whole different destination I’d like them to disappear into… >:^]

  • kissjrj

    Toure declares Oreos to be racist, saying nothing white should ever come between anything black.

  • cgraham77

    I thought it was already common knowledge that Toure was a “Truther.”

    I guess for “real” journalists like Piers Morgan, news travels pretty slow.

    MSNBC, home of the tweelete.

    @Toure A black pres. >>(D)<< could totally get away with a conspiracy unlike Bush (R) as ppl like you would… do that thing you do. #sheep

  • DrSamHerman

    So Toure went to the same scientific and engineering classes as Rosie O’Donnell?

    • TocksNedlog

      Oh please … !

      Touré never went to class.

  • TocksNedlog

    Tools of a feather . . .

  • TocksNedlog

    British crackpot calls the kettle black.

    Limey racist.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    Toure’s new theory – the Chucacabra and Sasquatch were behind 9/11. And the NRA is responsible for the fluoride in water which makes us all buy assault clips and bayonet lugs!

    Touré is a real guy? I always thought he was a Richard Ayoade character.

  • Stan

    Sir Piers is giving a lecture next week on How to Hack a Celebs cell phone, with enlightened commentary from @Toure on the racial aspects of phone hacking.

  • DanOBGYN

    Ask anyone how many buildings went down on 9/11, they won’t get the answer right. Calling someone a Conspiracy Theory in a negative way is dumb, there have been plenty of things our government has told us that have turned out to be lies. Gulf of Tonkin is one that every Veteran should be aware of.
