I can not get past the fact that the disclaimer was not made up front and at the top of the fake interview. Amazing that people are so controlled by him they don't even care about the indiscretion.

Jones does what amounts to a scam of his readers and people get upset at ATS for pointing it out. Incredible

That's all detailed in AJ's new DVD. For only $24.95 you too can proudly own the 2 disk DVD set that explains "THE HOAX THAT NEVER WAS!"

The You Tube hype that AJ made and posted in advance to set up this "earth shattering story" would have been completely pointless if he intended to reveal that the interview was make believe.

It only makes sense if he intended to let people believe it was real, at least for a while.

And, now whoever posted AJ's implausible explanation would have us believe that the world is grateful and appreciative, and that the stunt will serve as a catalyst for great things.

This is what happens when a carny barker finds a profitable niche in the Patriotism-For-Profit movement, and the truth is mere Silly Putty in his hands....

I'm gonna throw this out there at the risk of being totally flamed but come on guys. Have you ever seen a newspaper retract a story the week after release because of some factual error. Is this really so different?

I mean when this whole thing went down I was like "oh great" the sky is falling, just what we need more division. you guys know what conquers "division". We have go to get past this.

He appologized. he set the record straight and left us with a presentation that for me personally has worked in practice. I have never shared 9/11 with anyone so quickly and had them not look at me as if I had just grown a third eye. Truth is I have had a pretty good success rate but never at this pace.

I'm just sayin...

When I think about the woman who married serial killer Richard Ramírez (aka The Night Stalker) and those who propose to other evil criminals it comes as no surprise that the blatantly unprincipled Alex Jones would have a fan base.

Some people actually boost their sagging self esteem by defending controversial (if not downright creepy) "celebrities" including cannibals, necrophiliacs and patriots for profit.

And logic cannot explain this or the Ohio woman who fought and won the "right" to wear her Star Fleet Commander uniform while serving on jury duty. I'm sure that AJ's groupies believe that their loyalty is as appreciated and necessary as that woman's loyalty is to Star Fleet Command.

It was reported over 20 years ago that fully 50% of Americans suffer from some minor mental illness. Needless to say most can probably function in their daily lives and (I dare say that) millions own computers and are either looking for or have found "celebrities under siege" to adopt.

How else can we explain the popularity of our former president, a drooling, dry drunk megalomaniac whose fantasies included tail hooking onto the deck of the Abraham Lincoln in a tailored flight suit to announce "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED"? To this day his more severely affected cult followers will argue that the "war"' was won by then and we've just been mopping up ever since.

And GWB and AJ have something else in common. Bush is "SON OF CIA" and Alex is agency created functionary for the purpose of guiding the patriot movement now just as Gloria Steinem did the feminist movement in the 1960's.

Especially coming from a group that likes to call others "sheeple". Guess Nietzche was right.

He apologised with LIES for lying. That classifies it as a non-apology in my book.

Why cant you understand that this was all premeditated. What part of this fact cant you grasp. You cant plan to kill someone set the room up with all the tools kill the person hide the body and then when you get caught say oh sorry didnt mean it. HE PLANNED THIS. IT WAS NOT A MISTAKE. THE APOLOGY HAS NO MEANING IF ITS FALSE.

Alex just did the first 15 minutes of coast to coast. Its worth listing to IMO. Im hoping that someone with streamlink can post this on utube when the shows over. I believe the last thing Alex would do is hoax anyone intentionally concerning 9-11.

Or you could watch it on YouTube for free, or download it off of somewhere for free. When you address those who you believe to be bad, you don't call them things they aren't lest you become them.

I don't know, maybe Alex's intentions were good, you know, draw some needed attention to the subject. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

It's rare that I actually get to follow something like this live, usually I find out about them after the fact and then have to piece everything together (damn time zones). But this one I was here for, i was watching the clock for the time of the announcement, and I read the article at first not knowing that it wasn't true.

OK, so the interview wasn't real. Something that you read and thought was true later turned out to be a complete lie. You're angry, you feel betrayed, and you want AJ's blood on the carpet as punishment (not literally, of course).

But hold on a minute, step back. What's this lie about?

Anyone with half a brain cell can look at the events of 9/11 and know that there's lies all over the place. We can see the truth hidden, we see news reports that were only played once and now can only be seen on youtube and the like from recordings made by members of the public. We saw war declared as a response to this false flag incident, a war that 8 years on is still raging with no intention of it ever stopping. We've seen civil liberties and personal freedoms curtailed and pulled out from under us to the point where next time i go to an airport I'm fully expecting to be strip searched.

AJ told a little white lie, and a few minutes, not even the length of a full hour later, he came clean and let us know that it wasn't true. He told a lie in order to get a reaction, and then immediately came clean about it.

Our governments have been lying to us for 8 years about 9/11, and about 7/7 here in the UK. Were's the reaction there? Why aren't you doing anything about it? The letter, fictional as it is, makes some important points. Obama got elected to office based on a stack of lies. He promised reform, he promised freedom, he promised a change to how things had been done for 8 years. And then he got elected, and everything carried on so much as it had been that it's a farce to believe that there was a change in regime at all.

Don't get angry at AJ, get angry at yourselves for allowing yourselves to be lied to and fooled so completely. And all you do is sit there, doing nothing, complaining because some radio presenter told a fib, while your government takes away every freedom you have, and to help, you still all go home very night and lock yourselves in your cell.

So I guess the logic here of some is that we should be thankful we have someone like Alex Jones, even if he makes us look completely insane, because at least he's getting noticed?????????


We might as well have a clown for a 'spokesperson' then. Or Charles Nelson Riley to just throw confetti around and sing show tunes.

Hmmmmm. Let's see. A hyped up show, which was claimed as 'the biggest in my 14 years of radio', turns out to be a complete let down AGAIN by him, and we're supposed to be thankful it is putting the spotlight on 9/11?

What happened to logic?

You know what? I seriously will never post another post about 9/11 ever again. I can't care anymore. Nothing will ever come of it anyways. The Government covered itself up and will never let the facts out, so what good is it to even waste time?

And with people like Alex Jones making wild assertions about "Eugenics" and selling us on the idea that we will be in Fema Camps (for the last 14 years he has said that mind you)?

According to Alex we were supposed to be invaded by Russian Nukes on y2K. According to him we should have all been slaves by now with bar codes tattooed on our balls. According to him we should be in a Civil War by now, all killed off by a plague, all herded into pens, in a war with Iran, total anarchy, riots in the streets, and much more.

Was he right about some things? Yes In fact it's getting really bad. Our Economy is done for and we're all becoming debt slaves led by Masters with enough money to buy us all out.

But Alex Jones hardly has inside scoop on all of that info.

How did one man get so important? He's all we have? Is he the Lord of all things that need fighting for? He's a damn cult icon, how in any way is that acceptable?

How is it acceptable that he has so many hopes rested on him? That right there is reason enough to tone him down in itself. This one guy should not have the monopoly of being some kind of cult leader. Screw that. I don't want a cult leader, I want someone that can get stuff done. If I must have a "leader" I want someone who can get results and will lead a real charge.

Spamming Joker posters, printing Tshirts, selling DVDs, selling me water filters and stuff, selling me fake hyped stories by movie actors is NOT what I am about.

I hope Alex has learned his lesson the hard way. Folks don't take kindly to "Sensationalism" of news items. Ask Geraldo Rivera !!!

Oh please, he made you look stupid? How about allowing a president to take a second term without winning an election? How about electing a new president because he promised changes across the board, and now you do nothing about it when it turned out to be a pack of lies. How about sending your sons and daughters off to die in a war that should never have been fought.

You don't need AJ to make yourselves look stupid.

The US and the UK are the bad guys in this war. We're the Nazi's this time around. We're the public the world will laugh at for blindly following our leaders into occupying foreign countries. We're the blind sheep who don't do anything about our freedoms evaporating before our eyes.

We looked stupid long before this letter.

Alex Jones is irreplaceable. Seriously, who would you replace him with if you could?

I've visited many sites which have addresses this latest issue - ATS members are by far the most pissed off about this.

I guess i've just grown tired of Alex Jones. After too many sensationalist stunts and speculative "sky is falling" tirades, I just can't take him seriously anymore. When I listen to his show I don't even feel like I even share his views anymore. Most of his callers seem like rambling hillbilly types with way too much time on their hands and heads full of ideas. I can't even listen anymore without feeling like my head is going to explode. It's all just a bunch of panic. In fact Alex Jones' websites should just be called "Panic here and buy gold truth yell scream eugenic master die now kill later nwo festival".

It's all too much you know?

Not sure why a lot of you believe that Alex Jones actually "Conspired" to Hoax everyone... Oh wait... I almost forgot that this IS a conspiracy website after all.

Bottom line, I don't believe he meant to actually "Hoax" anyone. Especially after watching his "Apology Video". No Conspiracy here folks. You don't need to make it into something so complex. Sometimes the truth actually is as "Simple" as someone making an honest mistake. That's why I try not to be too quick to Judge.

Anyways, I just watched his Video Apology. It actually makes perfect sense.

I'd rather too much than too little information.

Alex Jones has done more to expose the corruption and anti-constitutional machinations of our government than any other single person alive today.

I don't like the things he says; they are frightening. But they are not nearly as frightening as the documents and papers which he is basing his scary reportage upon.

People say he mongers fear. They should be scared. The documents he reports on are horrifying and disturbing, even moreso than Jones could ever hope to be.

If its all so bad why did he bring kids into the world. Oh yep i forgot working for the government he is protected, so he will not be harmed.

In the real world if you do stuff the government does not like, they will go after you big time, and they have so much tech today, if he was really against them, he would not be able to speak out as he would be a vegtable. The government are that bad.

But of course jones doing what the government wants, is just sucking all you people in, and you people buy it all up.
