2 pennies. Spend em how you like.
Yes - because all alternative journalists are independently wealthy - or have vowed to take an oath of poverty.
Perhaps your philosophy works well when considering a Religion to study - i.e. if they ask for money first before knowledge, then it's likely a
But when it comes to providing a source for cutting edge news and information - I say AJ charges FAR too little.
That is why I have supported him with Eric N.'s moneybomb - and now AJ has a Bigger Studio and an upcoming TV Show to help get the news out.
Grassroots financial support is the way to go if we want to be able to compete with the Banking Consortiums - who simply print all the money the need
out of thin air!
Otherwise we come to the fight not only as an underdog - but also with both hands tied behind our back!
In this life it take money and sweat to get things done - but, by all means, live by your conviction that all things worth while should be free -
lemme know how that works out for ya!
(and for you people who continue to claim he is a zionist - then why the f does he support/host documentaries that oust Israeli involvement in
everything from 9/11 to full scale Spy Rings working in the US)
Good post and I can't agree for the most part. Problem in discussing Jones - people love him or hate him.
His showmanship and histrionic work for his audience. But in the end make him less accessible to new people arriving looking for a levelheaded
explanation of what's really going on.
Though he is better than most conspiracy forums and media sources in the same racket, say the embarrassing Jeff Rense, Jones still come off as a
lunatic fringe conspiracy rather than a reliable alternative news source.
Almost anything and everything is fair game for examination. Not enough of the real whack job and self-promoting stuff gets filtered out. It dilutes
the credibility and believability.
People have real time constraints, that's why they watch TV news summaries and skim headlines.
If you know when you go to Jones there are nuggets of vitally important information that will affect your life, but have to also listen to alien
abduction stories and other stuff that presses credulity, you just turn off.
We shouldn't want predigested news but we do. Jones is too demanding. It all gets spewed out so fast, thick and furious it can't all be taken in
Jones may have a million listeners, but his message is inaccessible to tens of millions. I'm in the latter category.
If he ever gets his act together as a credible journalist who can do more than shout horror stories in your ear, I'd be interested.
