So calling everyone a liar makes the topic of this thread seem more relevant? The topic is that nobody got what Jones was trying to do.
And, yes, I do get what he was trying
to do, but he failed miserably with what he did
If you want to create a video and hype up the BIGGEST story of the last 14 years, then so be it. If Charlie Sheen wants to write a script of what
could be, so be it. But what Jones did was tell people in his video that he would release pieces of what the story would be about that morning before
his show. It turns out that what was released was the Charlie Sheen "interview" and it was presented as if it happened.
When the comments started challenging the authenticity of this story, they were immediately erased. In conspiracy circles, we call this a coverup.
Then, 90 minutes later a disclaimer was added stating that this interview hadn't taken place...yet. Even this is slightly deceitful as it could imply
that there will
be an interview in the future and not that this is just wishful thinking or an attempt to garner an interview.
I posted the definition of a hoax in another thread. It fits nicely with what Jones did. Here is the definition: An act intended to deceive or
If you think that he did not intend to do this, then we will have to agree to disagree.
But please don't try to justify the actions of someone as high-profile as Alex Jones by saying that we all lie so that makes what he did o.k.
To quote from the Spiderman movie, "With great power comes great responsibility."
Jones does have a lot of influential power in many conspiracy and truth-seeking circles. That's why many of us just can't understand why he would
risk damaging his credibility and that of the community with this irresponsible stunt. This isn't the biggest story of the last 14 years and will be
off the radar in no time. It's sad to think that this was a feeble attempt to drive up revenue for a short time and/or create a viral video for means
of pushing his latest DVD.
