I am guessing that the folks t WND know that its crazy conspiracy theories are bullshit. They also know that the crazy conspiracy theories drive up traffic. They report that “Scalia found dead with a pillow over his head.” Within that are links to companion crackpottery: “Urgent calls begin for Scalia autopsy.” The intended inference is that it’s just common sense that Justice Scalia was murdered and Obama ordered the hit. About 1,700 comments (probably 2,000 by now) confirm that they have achieved their goal. Just the first three at the top of the page:

Further reading confirms that Breitbart and others were murdered on orders from President Obama. These people actually believe this crap. It’s really rather depressing!
