Uh-oh … looks like Joy Reid might have even more in common with Roseanne than we thought:
Joy Reid’s old blog—which she claimed last month was hacked—featured a post in 2006 encouraging readers to watch “Loose Change,” an Alex Jones-produced 9/11 truther video. lol. https://t.co/R6KngkJb9f

More from BuzzFeed:
A March 22, 2006 post to her weblog, Reidblog, archived by the Wayback Machine and titled “The official story” links to “Loose Change 9/11,” a viral 80-minute web video originally released in 2005. “Loose Change,” which was produced in part by Infowars’ Alex Jones, alleged that the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center were in fact planned by the American government. The central claims in “Loose Change” have been widely debunked.
The “Loose Change” post isn’t the only skepticism on her blog about the attacks that killed 3,000 people. In a March, 2006 post titled “Flashback: September 30, 2001,” Reid’s blog notes that the US government identified the plotters suspiciously soon. It then repeats common truther questions about the collapse of building WTC 7, which was not hit by an airplane.
“For that matter, why did any of the WTV [sic] buildings fall…?” Reidblog states. “Somehow I think it will be a generation before we get the full story on what happened on 9/11?”
Awww … two bigoted truthers in a nutty little pod! It’s almost sweet.

Of course, some people can’t handle Joy Reid’s words being scrutinized:
it's pretty amazing that Joy Reid is literally a target when an institution that is 80% white male has been past perfect with their bias? Considering the media has a skewed bias, wondering if there is more here

When you have to dig back to an old blog to get dirt on someone who has spent more than a decade on the air with her evolved beliefs says it all.
You have nothing. But keep trying.

This is very CT too, or maybe it's not – seems like journalists and others are coordinating a smear campaign targeting Joy Reid. Someone should investigate that instead of chasing 10 year old blog posts.

Well anyway, this much is for sure:
The FBI needs to catch that time traveling hacker before they post weather control Jew conspiracies on Joy Reid's blog

I really hope the unimpeachable FBI catches Joy Reid’s hacker soon. People are getting the idea that she’s a liar.
