BERLIN (AP) - A German government agency tasked with providing unbiased political information has launched a website suggesting that the U.S. government staged the 9/11 attacks and that aircraft contrails are poisonous - to show how illogical conspiracy theories are.

The Federal Agency for Civic Education said Monday that the mock videos on the website are aimed at people who don’t pay much attention to traditional media.

The site - called “Wahre Welle TV,” or True Wave TV - is designed to encourage consumers of online information to critically question what they see or read online.

To make clear the videos are not meant to be taken literally, each episode ends with the words “don’t believe the crap” and links to additional resources.

The anti-bias agency also publishes materials for civics lessons.
