View Full Version : Moon hoax on German TV

Ran just now on VOX.

Kaysing, Sibrel, Rene, that photograph "expert", someone called McCurdy, the whole parade of hoaxers. One NASA guy who comes off as unconvincing. Hm, I see it's the one produced by Bruce Nash, didn't catch the original title.


It was sent as part of SpiegelTV, and here I was thinking that they were at least halfway respectable. I think I'll write to Spiegel to let them know that their TV show department tarnishes their reputation.

Nash Entertainment did the Fox show, "Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon?". It's the one I trashed point by point.

In the magazine "Spiegel" (and it's online issue) the topic for that program was anounced as "The Mars Project" (about the Spirit-missions). That was a bit misleading.

So it was none other than the notorious Fox show. Yup. Really makes you want to bang your head against a wall repeatedly.

I don't know what possessed them to send that. And yes, something different was (and still is) announced on the websites of both VOX and Spiegel TV. :-k

Why can't someone make a decent documentary about the moon landings and all the science that was accomplished? Of course, unless it is hosted by a bunch of half naked bimbos, none of the major networks will show it, it might actually be edudational, can't have that, in the US anyway. #-o

Across the pond here, the TV companies tend to be left wing and more likely to belive in the hoax theory. Our Channel 4 and Channel 5 have both aired programmes supporting the hoax theory. The only exception was Sky at Night that did a hoax debunking program. (The link is on another thread)

As your government is mistrusted I would not have thought that the networks would want to show anything supporting a government line, irrespective of the facts. :(

It was the FOX show on VOX, following a very good documentary about the Mars rover mission preparation. A double feature. First a pearl and then a pile of [bad word deleted].

Any other Germans here? There are two good websites in German on the subject:
Both have fora and currently people come in who saw the "documentary". Maybe we could need some more posters who answer questions there.
