Why are we so quick to label someone a 'conspiracy theorist'?


When someone has a different answer to an event other than the 'official' one, they are quickly discredited as a nut, or kook, or a 'conspiracy theorist'. If experts come up with radically different answers than the ones you have been told by the media or the government, shouldn't you at least give them the benefit of the doubt? There are on record, many so-called 'conspiracies' that turned out to be quite true. Why are we so quick to believe the very people who lie to us on a regular basis? Should you believe everything you read in the papers, hear on T.V., or are told by people in office?
