Boston Bombing Suspect Read Local, Anti-Zionist Newspaper

Posted: Updated:
SILVERHILL, Alabama -

A Silverhill newspaper tabloid laced with conspiracy theories, radicalism, Anti-Zionist beliefs, even discussions about white supremacy was found in the apartment of one of the Boston bombing suspects. 

According to the Wall Street Journal, Tamerlan Tsarnaev's apartment was filled with copies of the Silverhill published "The First Freedom" tabloid and other newspapers promoting what some call extremism.

Publisher Olar Childress tells News 5 he wasn't aware the brothers, who were accused of bombing the Boston Marathon route earlier this year, were reading his material.

Childress admits his publication is based on conspiracy theories, but says his newspaper does not promote violence.

Childress believes the Tsarnaev brothers befriended an older gentleman who subscribed to his paper and perhaps became loyal readers.
