Top Ten Stories of 2010

SFR Revisits the top 10 stories of the year—and the conspiracy theories behind them

December 22, 2010, 1:00 am

Even the most levelheaded among us found 2010 a bit paranoia-inducing. Public servants who seemed trustworthy turned out to be on the grift. Revered institutions bellied up left and right. The recession showed few useful signs of receding. iPhones were demonized. Burglars ran rampant. 

And the election…well, let’s just say, we could have used some medical marijuana by the time that was over.

We wrap up 2010 with a look back at the top stories that shaped the roller coaster of the last 12 months. True, not all of these stories woke us at 3 am with our teeth chattering. But the pervasive sense of seditious intent from the powers that be did fuel our thinking as we wrapped up the year.

So we present not just the top 10 stories, but our own take on the conspiracies behind them.

Too outlandish? Hey, just because you’re paranoid…
