I think this post sums up one side of the story fairly well...

I don't think that anyone got fooled by the Charlie Sheen interview, that's the whole thing.
Alex Jones promoted this as the "biggest story he;s ever done in fourteen years."
In the end, what we get was a fictional interview.
That's why people are angry. We got screwed over by Alex Jones, and his whole thing of, "the media will go with this and it'll be huge" is a
As I said in an earlier post, keep a sense of proportion
. Did anyone die? No. A few gullible people read an interview they thought was real.
Rather more were disappointed that AJ let them down.
If you place your trust in Alex Jones I feel sorry for you, because you're going to be disappointed. The guy's a buffoon. But this campaign was
still a mistake, even if, as Jones seems to think (and he might even right) that all publicity is good publicity.
As one thread put it, he damaged our credibility
Hm. The "credibility" of the 9/11 movement is not exactly enhanced by having Jones around at all. But actually drawing attention
idiocies only makes matters worse, although people here can't seem to get their heads around that one. So few seem to have grasped the idea of
pushing the positive messages from this because so many people around here hate Jones.
Yes, he's everyone's scary uncle who turns up drunk at Christmas and picks a fight with your dad before the police have to be called. So why expect
anything sensible? Why believe the hype?
We have people on here that doubt the validity of 9/11. His whole shenanigans has damaged some of that credibility we've built upon.
You know the more I think about this word "credibility" that people are so happy to throw around, the more I realise what a slippery concept it is.
Credibility in whose eyes? If you're talking about the population as a whole, then that credibility is, like it or not, affected by MSM coverage.
ATS has just engineered a spat that, if it makes mainstream, makes all of us here look like hysterical ninnies.
