Sadly, 99.9% of the people who still follow Alex Jones or still believe anything he says, is "new to the whole conspiracy scene".
Alex Jones, over the years, has proven himself to be a liar, a sensationalist, a drug addict, and a psychotic douche bag. It's too bad you haven't
done any research to find that to be true.
You think this is the first time he used a "government insider" headline to get your attention for his "show"? Back in 2004, he had another
"government insider" on his show claiming Bush ordered 9/11....
Did anything come of that? Nope.... No proof, no evidence, just another "government insider" saying what you want to hear.
You know, for someone who is so anti-government or anti-establishment and literally says the government is killing everyone, he sure does put a lot
of trust in what "government insiders" tell him.
One of Alex Jones' tactics is to use what is called the "argument from authority":
Argument from authority (also known as appeal to authority) is a fallacy of defective induction, where it is argued that a statement is correct
because the statement is made by a person or source that is commonly regarded as authoritative.
The most general structure of this argument is:
Source A says that p is true.
Source A is authoritative.
Therefore, p is true.
...it is stupidity at its finest.
