Jesse Ventura To Host Investigative Show For TruTV
Former Governor to reveal details of new project on the Alex Jones show this week
September 30, 2008
Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura is to host a new investigative series for television channel TruTV which promises to look into different "conspiracy theories" and weigh up their validity.
Ventura will reveal details of the upcoming series in an exclusive appearance on the Alex Jones show tomorrow (Wednesday 1st October).
A press release posted via PRNewswire states:
Jesse Ventura, a man who has lived a dangerous life, is about to explore mysteries behind the most compelling modern day conspiracy theories for truTV. Production of a pilot featuring Ventura begins in October. The project comes to truTV from A. Smith & Co. Productions.
[...] Ventura will hunt down answers, plunging viewers into a world of secret meetings, midnight surveillance, shifty characters and dark forces.
Ventura first appeared on the Alex Jones show earlier in the year to reveal his questions and concerns over the official government version of events surrounding the 9/11 attacks
Since that time the former Navy Seal has been extremely vocal in his support for the 9/11 Truth Movement. Ventura spoke passionately on the subject in front of 10,000 strong and millions watching on C-Span during an appearance at Ron Paul’s Rally For The Republic last month.
During his last appearance on the Alex Jones show this July, Ventura hit out at a now entrenched culture that "cannot handle the truth" when it comes to the events of 9/11, the war in Iraq, the devastation that has been wrought on the economy and the "failed political leadership" of the last eight years.
TruTv currently reaches 91 million U.S. households, meaning Ventura will potentially reach millions of viewers who are not already aware of his views and the movements he has associated himself with.
Alex Jones was recently pitched a similar series tentatively titled "American Conspiracy", by the same production company behind the Ventura fronted show.
