Alex Jones is an interesting character, in that he is loud and can come across as being .. "out there". This can turn alot of people off to him who
otherwise could have benefited from something profound or actually truthful he might have said against what anyone else 'mainstream' might be
preaching. Another problem is that people who might be 'fringe' who listen to him too much might end up learning ( unknown to them ) to act just like
he does, thus making the stereotype of 'alternative points of view' associated with 'fringe/abnormal social behavior'.
That aside, I think it was 2010 or 2011 that there was a gun rights march on every US capitol plus DC. The numbers were huge! I Wish I could
remember the event title or something a person could use to research it, one thing I do remember was it was to be held on the date of the Columbine
shooting ( I think ) and Bill Clinton told the media that they shouldn't air the gun rights march because it would be offensive, or something like
that. Perhaps someone who remembers could come here and illustrate that particular event further.
The result though was ZERO media coverage of a mass event spaning EVERY US capitol plus Washington DC. If you didn't follow gun rights stuff you
never heard of it, simple as that. Isn't that amazing? That event was a testament to how powerful media silence can be and also to me a testament to
the fact that 'marches' will do nothing for the simple fact that all the media has to do is not air or talk about it.
