I don’t like that the original headline was “are so dumb”. Conspiracy believers aren’t dumb, they are failing at trying to make sense of a frightening event based on the bad information they’ve been given by their preferred social circle that feeds a messed-up worldview.

    Well it could be reworded as “believe outrageous claims based on a single photo”, but that can be reduced to “are so dumb”.
