I've been reading through most of this post and have some questions and comments.
First of all, I listen to many talk shows and read many websites daily. I try to get a good feel for what's going on in the world by listening to
Alex Jones is mainly entertainment for me because he rants and raves. And I laugh heartily. But I still enjoy listening because I get to hear about
news articles I may not have ever found on my own. He's just one information resource out of many for me.
So many posters have called him a liar but did not prove what Alex lied about exactly. Just called him a few names and made no other comments or
provided information. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but to make it a decent debate, you gotta show something for the basis of opinions.
Of course Alex is in it for the money! All the talk show guys/gals are in it for the money! Do you expect to catch his show via morse code while he
sits there in a monk habit and a rope for a belt and eat gruel three times a day?
That's just how talk radio works. It requires money. Money is needed to pay for bandwidth, equipment, building rent/purchase, employee salaries,
etc. And Alex needs to support his family some how.
Whatever anyone does, they do it for the money. Most people have jobs, or they leech off the government or family. They do something to get money,
so technically they are all just in it for the money. All the rest can be charity after the paycheck is collected, but sadly this is how the world
works - it requires money to function. I don't agree with it, but it's just how things are right now until we collectively change it.
ALL talk radio has advertisements with the hosts spewing commercials about their sponsors and encourage listeners to support them by buying books,
DVDs and stuff from the sponsors. Can't listen to even Dr. Stan without him plugging his book a few times a show.
I know Alex can greatly exaggerate some stories, but he still asks everyone to take the time to research on their own. Most people are either too
lazy and want someone else to give them all the information while they sit back and do nothing, or are too busy trying to make ends meet and provide
for a family. No one person is an expert to give everyone all the answers. It's just not possible. It's almost as if people are still wishing for
a savior instead of going on their own to try to make a difference in the world. Alex is not a savior and never will be. He's just a regular guy
who's trying to make some money in his life and try to do good at the same time. Isn't that what just about everyone is trying to do?
In my opinion Alex is trying to do too much too fast. And that's how mistakes are made. You guys are going on and on about how they left out the
disclaimer and that makes them liars. You speak almost as if you were disappointed that the interview never really happened. And so you lash out
like children, calling names, pouting and claiming that you'll never listen to him again. haha
Alex does not like Cooper because there was no definitive proof about the alien stuff. I liked Cooper, but even he got weird in the end. But I take
all the alien stuff with a grain of salt because while I suspect there may be other life "out there" I have yet to see any definitive proof about
it. All we have available is just rumor, opinion, funny lights in the sky and blurry images. I can't blame Alex for sticking with what he can
prove through MSM articles and published books. He's formed his opinions based on that mainly.
I may not agree with everything that Alex does, but as I said above, he's only one informational resource out of many for me. But I have to applaud
him for one reason - he's getting people out there to tear off the horse blinders and rose colored glasses and take a good look around for perhaps
the first time. He's doing this through viral videos, and hyping up events. At least the topics are being discussed!! Maybe Alex is right, and
maybe he's wrong. But at least he's doing something.
I don't see guys like Texe Marrs, Dr. Stan, or the Power Hour going viral! MSM doesn't talk about Jordan Maxwell, Michael Tsarion, or Anthony J
Hilder! Who talk about those guys in the local coffee shop? Chances are 90% of the people have never even heard those names.
And Alex doesn't give credit to other researchers that opened conspiracy research doors so long ago, before he was even born. I am disappointed in
But to err is human. We all make mistakes.
