How dare Alex Jones preach capitalism than practice that theory himself
Where is his money supposed to come from, if he doesn't earn it? He's not asking for donations, he's selling a product.
Alex Jones gets his money from the same people who pay Rense. They could not afford their lifestyle on what meager money they get from advertising or
donations. Disinformation sites are more common than information sites. Because controlled opposition is intended to lead you from the truth.
Sometimes pointing out a real conspiracy is the hook that grabs you. Then they publish a bunch of garbage to muddy the waters, which covers up the
real conspiracies. People should not blindly follow elected politicians, but the same applies to people who claim to be exposing conspiracies. If a
website is too slick and well funded, that is the first clue something is wrong. People like Jones and Rense are not able to hold a real job in the
world. These un-employables are paid very well for what they are doing.
Look at the print Weekly Standard. No one subscribes to it and pays for it. It is a propaganda rag 100% funded by the owners. Its sole purpose appears
to be so Neocon Supreme Bill Kristol can go on Sunday morning talk shows and present himself as the editor of the Weekly Standard.
The web has been infiltrated too, not just the print media.
... how much money do you think Alex Jones makes? It's not like his costs are all that great, he runs a basic studio with an online radio broadcast.
He makes maybe $40,000 (maybe), and his wife probably works for a living as well. His parents might even help him out, for all we know.
He isn't making that much money. And he has a job, he works and runs his business, and makes a profit. There's nothing wrong with that. Not all of his
information is the greatest, but we call that a "slow news day".
The URL is like $10 a year
You can use Zazzle.com and build just about anything you want, buy in bulk or sell from the site for free.
The radio equipment is maybe $10,000 at most.
He had to do a giant fundraiser to get the TV show going.
Alex Jones makes legit money off legit advertising, and selling products and memberships. I think he's close to breaking even.
Arguing that he makes money, therefor he's lying and a thief, is just a bad argument to discredit him. He preaches how much he loves freedom of speech
and free markets, and he fully participates in the free market. He doesn't sell drugs, he doesn't advertise for major corporations and he goes on air
every day. He works 7 days a week.
