Wiki & Abstracts (no. 5) - Conspiracy Theory

 So all this talk about deception and media got me thinking about conspiracy theories. I have never really paid attention to the notion but I realized even if most of the evidence in a conspiracy theory is bunk, our culture pays a lot of attention to the idea of a powerful elite secretively controlling or hiding something from the masses. So I did so research and came up with the Top 5 Conspiracy Theories of our modern media.

conspiracy theory:
1. a theory that explains an event as being the result of a plot by a covert group or organization; a belief that a particular unexplained event was caused by such a group.
2. the idea that many important political events or economic and social trends are the products of secret plots that are largely unknown to the general public.

Makes you wonder, huh?
