it might not hurt to actually inform yourself about what outlets you consume.

(hated "across the US" is also pretty funny, I have been seeing articles about Infowars for the past 3 years in German, French and English news. they aren't some niche comedy channel, you probably missed it that Infowars got WH press credentials a year ago, while non-alternative-facts media outlets got their credentials revoked. good morning.)

I've never heard of the guy until this thread, the h8rs here will say I'm ignorant, but the reality is, much of adult America doesn't give a fuck about nobodies like this because we're busy working full time and taking care of responsibilities. there's a million talking heads, all preaching to people who already agree with them, and converting no one. it sells ads though

Yeah exactly, O' Reilly, Maddow, Stewart, Colbert, Jones, Beck, Limaugh, Stern, who the fuck has time to listen to these bimbos tell anyone how to think?

Fuck all that

I don't remember hearing the guy's name specifically until the whole gay frogs thing happened. Raving dipshit conservative commentators out of the states just kind of blend together when you get so many of them over the years. I think I mistook him for Rush Limbaugh at first.

But I dunno I have no idea what the youth are into these days, but they certainly don't seem very intellectually curious, at least from what I can tell... Well, they liked Bernie... That's at least something.
Is the mainstream media making him say insane things, rave like a lunatic, breakdown crying “cuz ‘Murica”, and peddle useless pills to gullible fools?

If you’re intellectually curious, Jones isn’t the source of information you go to. Flattering viewers intellect is one of his techniques for hooking the naive.

I came here to engage in smashing pumpkins talk, a band I grew up with. that's stimulating to me. brainless news anchors are not stimulating. I check google news everyday for major headlines and local news websites and that's just fine with me. sorry if you can't grasp that concept, or were you just trying to be a dick?

The fact that it got you worked up is a nice extra yes, but i thought it was funny that your excuse for not having heard of Alex Jones was 'guess what, most people don't have time for those things' which isn't the brightest of assumptions and that you rather use your valuable time being 'stimulated' on netphoria.

This was evident from your posts yes, but maybe it's a good incentive to keep your uninformed opinions on anything vaguely related to politics to yourself?

No, you're right. This was his audience during the Bush years.

If you were an anti-Bush slacker in the Alternative scene talking about UFOs, JFK, and 9/11, chances are you listened to Alex Jones as well. Post Bush...the guy is an absolute fruitcake.

Alex realised that Glenn Beck made millions by stealing his schtick. so he ramped it up. Simple as that.

Just cause I think Alex is wrong sometimes doesn't mean that a lot of his coverage isn't great.

ever heard of a dealbreaker? there are tons of reasons to know AJ is a piece of shit who is purposeful leading people like you on for money/fame... but sandy hook is like a shit test. if you can still support him by saying "he's not always right" after he thinks the whole thing is a hoax and a bunch of children didn't die and harassing the parents of the kids that died, well i guess you can forgive anything
