In my 2 years of listening to Alex...all i ever heard from him is very scary stuff. This clown actually scares little kids and they try to prove FEMA camps. (he's only 30% correct)

I dunno. Why do males over the age of 15 watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic?

As long as there is a niche for the material Alex Jones talks about, there will always be followers.

Even if Alex Jones is only 30% correct, that's still 29% more correct than the MSM.

Why does anyone watch, listen, or read CNN, Fox, MSNBC, BCC, Glen Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Anderson Cooper, so on and so forth?

Jone's earned my repsect for his special on the Bohemian Grove.

Society is addicted to tabloid media and the single biggest motivator of mankind is fear. Put the two together and you have a sure 'winner'.

The world is a very scary place? lol... Well look alex isn't there to talk about all the good things that happen in the world, he's there to highlight the bad! He's there to alert people to possible dangers etc. He has some great guests on and give some great info across... We can't just bury our head in the sand and pretend that nothing is going on.

Do I believe everything he says? No. Do I think he can exaggerate sometimes? Yes. But he still gets out very valid information. It's like anything else, you have to use your own discernment. He does also tell people to check the info out for themselves.

He hides a lot of information that would otherwise be useful but I think people watch him because they feel like they're being tuned to the world's problems when it's only drawing their attention away from them.

I remember years ago Alex yelling about flouride and BPA in plastics and how bad it is...

Then last year I remember states clearing flouride out of their water supplies, then I just heard BPA was being removed from plastics.

Was he fear mongering, or was he right lol.

When you find a "perfect" human being who reads news reports, do let us all know.

Alex's documentaries, like Endgame, have changed people's lives for the better. I and many others came into life changing information because of the efforts of Alex Jones.

Like many of us Alex Jones just wants to uncover the truth.And like many of us, he sometimes gets overly excited when he uncovers what might be the smoking gun.But Alex Jones is waking many people up and making them aware of whats really going on.

He has my respect...he has a brain the size of the world!

I often wonder the same thing. There was a time when his documentaries atleast were decent, but now he's just gone into full on egomaniac mode. Every other sentence is about he has been right about everything, or he is the biggest name in media, or that he and the infowarriors have stopped false flags. He has been saying for a while that he doesnt think it will be long before we are in the camps, and every time he gives a time frame and it passes he acts like nothing happens. Its like Mark Dice said in his video response to AJ, everything with him is "swat teams killing your family, death everywhere, and maggots crawling all over your body". Jones is a fear monger plain and simple. But he has fans because he is a lot like the Joker in the Dark Knight. He finds schizophrenics and really weak minded individuals (there are plenty of intelligent people who listen to him for like a month and catch on to his game) and then tells "its been admitted" or "I have the documents" and explains that all people who disagree with him are cointelpro. He uses his strong personality to sort of brainwash these people. Thats all I can figure because lord knows AJ has only been right on very general things.

Here's my theory. Or maybe this:-



Anyone who considers themselves a Capitalist advocate should never criticise Alex. He's meeting a need, and believe me, the market is rewarding him for it. His fellow schizophrenics greatly appreciate his efforts. Hell, occasionally I'll even tune in to watch him howl at the moon. It's great fun.

AJ on Coast to Coast is tame compared to his radio show.....if he was just a guest on shows I dont think people would hate him. On his show every few minutes he tells you how you are being injected with cancer, the TSA will be at your house soon to put you in camps, and the UN will soon have control of the US and when they do they will rape little kids. I have to imagine that would scare any children that listen.

I've only been listen to Jones for about a year, Japan earthquake. He can be such a drama queen and that gets on my nerves and down goes the volume. Jones has the guests that no one else does. I'll continue to listen but when he throws his fits, down goes the volume! One of my favorite guests is Lindsey Williams ... talk about telling it!

Exactly, and how about the recent "pink slime" removal? Hes been talking about that stuff for YEARS.

Whats happened is basically mainstream media has found that they cant beat him, so they will start producing like stories without picking anything too controversial, and will ride the outer fringes of what his and other alt media shows are doing (in full force). Why? People caught on.

Its good because no matter what medium (MSM/ALTM) is used, it all points towards the truth.

Glenn Beck started stealing AJs ideas, his show BOOMED when he started doing it. It was around the time you saw all those "WATCH GLENN BECK" bumperstickers started showing up everywhere. The thing was infowars had been doing it for years, all these Beck watchers with sudden motivation to put all this stuff up (bumperstickers, ads, etc) were just working off of a regurgitated idea, set to a new whiter-yuppy like audience that were getting involved for the first time.

It sells because of the ideas, they would make their way one way or another even if it wasnt news radio that was the medium. But having said all that AJ was the original (in the new sense, Limbaugh in the old). Hes always had the unpopular stuff. Hes fought the hardest fight and is reaping its benefits. He should be credited with the new movement. Kind of like Guns and Roses, they didnt invent rock and roll, but they made a big blip on the radar of history and influenced culture and other popular bands, and should be recognized for it. There are new bands constantly coming out and such, and the cycle continues, but again they (he) deserve their (his) recognition.

I see this argument from some people. I do see him touting his success. But you know what? Its not in a way thats pride filled. He just states the numbers, has the guests, and the rest does itself. After he makes a statement about his success, he follows it up with thanking the audience for it, thanking God for it, and tries to tell others how to do it and that hes not special. So yes he does do it, but almost in a way it has to be said. Plus critics keep him in line I guess and keep him from getting too big a head.

Not to mention the fact that hes not telling BS when he says it. Hes got the numbers and success to prove the statements he makes lol.

He hasnt even seen the peak of it yet. Watch the next year, hes going to be busy as anything. Im excited about all the new guests he has been getting too. I saw Billy Corrigan asked to do an interview out of the blue last week, and he had been a listener for years. Im looking forward to Rosanne Barr coming back and doing another one.

EDIT: I guess Rosanne Barr, Immortal Technique, Ed Asner, Billy Corrigan, Dave Mustane, Prodigy, Lenny Dykstra, Krs One, Brad Meltzer, and all the other celebs are just schizophrenic or weak minded because they still listen LOL. Thats not even getting into the doctors, scientists, and engineers, just the TV celebs. Your argument sucks lol and it seems like you are butthurt by his success.
