Examiner Touts Bilderberg Conspiracy Book
Topic: Washington Examiner

The Aug. 26 print edition of the Washington Examiner promoted as that day's "Evening Read" the book "The Bilderberg Conspiracy" by H. Paul Jeffers (scan of paper below).

The copy -- taken directly from promotional copy and identical to that appearing on the page for the book at Barnes & Noble's website, reads:

Hidden behind many of today's major news stories, the Bilderberg Group is an elite clique of the most powerful names in politics, media, business, and finance, who want to impose a one-world government on the rest of us. Led by such iconic members as Henry Kissinger, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Richard Perle, Melinda Gates (wife of Bill Gates), David Rockefeller, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, Tony Blair, and Margaret Thatcher, their secret conferences (where press has long been banned) are rumored to have engineered many of today's monumental global events.

The Examiner apparently ran out of copy to actually list those "monumental global events," but they appear on the B&N page:

The September 2008 collapse of worldwide banking.

Bill Clinton's presidency and the passage of NAFTA.

The loss of America's jobs to foreign nations.

The toppling of Margaret Thatcher for trying to keep the U.K. out of the E.U.

Bildergerger conspiracies are typically fodder for the likes of WorldNetDaily, not a publication like the Examiner that's trying to pass itself off as a mainstream newspaper. But perhaps the fact that it's promoting this book is just more evidence that it's far out of the mainstream.
