MSNBC host Joy Reid had promoted the 9/11 conspiracy film Loose Change — produced in part by Infowars’ Alex Jones — on her old blog in March 2006, which claimed that the terrorist attacks was orchestrated by the U.S. government, BuzzFeed News reports.

The fundamental question is: do you believe the official story of 9/11?. If you do, great. If you don't, then everything that happened after that is called into serious question. Even if you're agnostic, or you tend to believe that al-Qaida attacked the World Trade Center and Pentagon and that the government had no warning such a thing could happen, it's worth taking a second look.
— Joy Reid wrote on her blog.

Flashback: This report comes weeks after Reid apologized for homophobic blog posts. Neither Reid nor MSNBC responded to BuzzFeed News' requests for comment. The conspiracy claims have since been debunked.
