Fourth of July blog: My top five favorite American conspiracies

Commentary by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — There are a lot of things America does well. There are a lot of things we don’t do well. But I can’t imagine any other country that can spread conspiracy theories quite like the U.S. of A.

Welcome to my fifth annual “Cueball Fourth of July” column –  where I celebrate 244 years of history,  by making a useless Internet list of all things American.

This year, in honor of the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m going to list my top five favorite American conspiracies.

COVID-19 is a deadly virus that has spread quickly across the world. But COVID-19 hasn’t spread nearly as quickly as the conspiracy theories.

Why are we obsessed with conspiracies? I think it is because we love to gossip. It’s a great American pastime.

So let’s get started.

5. Paul is dead.
