This is a fairly new series (Premiered December 2) on the History channel, comes on every Thursday night at 10EST. This isn't uploaded from me, but here's the first episode (Commercials included! :clapper:):

Think they're competing with TruTV's Conspiracy Theory? Is History Channel's "Brad Meltzer" their Jesse Ventura? It certainly isn't as hard-hitting as Conspiracy Theory, but History Channel is a much more popular channel than TruTV I'm sure.
Brad Meltzer (Taken from Wikipedia):
Brad Meltzer is a bestselling American political thriller novelist, non-fiction writer, TV show creator and award-winning comic book author.


"Political thriller novelist" stands out to me as, this guy is searching for the hollywood version of conspiracy theories. I hate "non-fiction" national television shows like this. It just sounds like they're reading the Wikipedia description of a general conspiracy and going, "That's it! That's all there is to it. Go to sleep. We have a few hundred thousand dollar production budget that pays for our expert analysts, there's nothing we would have missed. (Footnote: We didn't use the internet, because everything you read on the internet is ridiculous and written by 10 year old's.)"

The primary difference between the two is that "Decoded" gives some critical thought to their focus on conspiracies and alleged strange events in an attempt to uncover the truth. In sharp contrast, "Conspiracy Theory" simply accepts every conspiratorial theory as fact as long as it concludes that the government, Papacy, or ethereal group of mega rich who control the World is behind them.

Jesse starts with a conclusion that the US is evil. Anything that would appear to support this, no matter how fantastic, is true. Everything else is simply conspiratorial "disinformation" by the same evil forces.

Jesse Ventura is a class "A " nut. Unfortunately there are a large number of people who subscribe to these nutty views. "Conspiracy Theory" not only appeals to them but helps to reinforce their own errant views.

And no... I am not a government plant in the process if disinformation!!!

Yeah I would agree.. Conspiracy theory run with popular theories regardless of the facts..

Decoded seems to look at what is known and unknown and then come to a logical conclusion..

I like Brad Meltzer, he's funny..

Mark Dice hit the nail on the head - "...Brad Meltzer is compromised...."
