Jon Rappoport

Can anyone tell me if Jon Rappoport, freelance investigative journalist (on the web at should be taken seriously? His remarks are completely out of the mainstream (HIV does not cause AIDS, no Muslim involvement in 9-11, that sort of thing), but I can’t find anything by mainstream journalists and writers on the net that disagree with him or his claims.

If his ideas are patently ridiculous, why do you care whether or not some web commentators have labelled him as a nutcase? Either way, he’s a nutcase - you can see it for yourself.

Not that I’ve read any of his work, but his claim regarding HIV and AIDS does in fact have some significant backing.
