According to conspiracy researchers Jonathan Vankin and John Whalen the American public's attitudes are shaped by a sanitized "Disney" view of both history and current events. «The "Disney version" of history could just as easily be called the "New York Times version" or the "TV news version" or the "college textbook version,"» they wrote. «The main resistance to conspiracy theories comes not from people on the street but from the media, academia, and government — people who manage the national and global economy of information.»
Anthony C. Sutton, a London−born economics professor who was a research fellow at Stanford University's Hoover institution, agreed that an "Establishment history" dominates textbooks, publishing, the media, and library shelves. «During the past one hundred years any theory of history or historical evidence that falls outside a pattern established by the American Historical Association and the major foundations with their grantmaking power has been attacked or rejected — not on the basis of any evidence presented, but on the basis of the acceptability of the arguments to the so−called Eastern Liberal Establishment, and its official historical line,» he commented. «Woe betide any book or author that falls outside the official guidelines. Foundation support is not there. Publishers get cold feet. Distribution is hit and miss, or non−existent.»

In the first case, we become advocates of the conspiratorial view of history. In the latter, we endorse the accidental view. It is a difficult choice.
