is a good example of what it is about Alex Jones I could do without. He twists current
events and spins stories to fit his outlook just as much as the MSM he condemns for doing the exact same thing.
The fear mongering is also a big negative. I don't know if you actually heard Jones and Burmas talking about the Russia/Georgia conflict in
yesterday's broadcast but they just kept harping on about how it's the beginning of the end, I'm paraphrasing of course but you know what I mean.
Nobody knows what this conflict will bring. Constantly assuming the worst about every bad situation is an inherently self-discrediting position to
take. You can only cry wolf so many times.
Oh yea, the religious problem too. Since Alex believes that the NWO essentially wants to bring about the Christian apocalypse and that they're being
guided by demonic forces... well, that doesn't help his credibility in my eyes anyway.
However in spite of all of this I still occasionally listen to his show when the guests and topics sound interesting enough. He is an alternative
voice in the media wilderness and he seems genuine in his attempt to spread information as freely and cheaply as possible. I have a lot to look past
but I can still find value in some of his programming.
