After watching through the entire thing, I am disappointed with the way he handled it. It looked they purposely set it up that way
Alex Jones is an idiot, but he is even more of an idiot if he thinks he can get what he wants with that pathetic petition regarding Piers.
I have no doubt that Piers saw that, and used it in his favor. He just defused the whole issue by showing Alex Jones true colors, and people might
like him - to this day, I can't see why -, but nobody was pressing a gun to his head and forcing him to say those things, he did it on his own.
Piers acting perfectly calm and composed, and Alex going off like a firecracker.
Well, that's because of two facts;
1- Piers Morgan is a professional journalists that has his own show on CNN;
2- Alex Jones is Alex Jones.
What he should have done is talked like he did for the first minute. Cite the statistics, explain them, let Piers make his comment & then
rebuttal it. Not yell the entire bit.
Something very off about this...
What statistics? Piers was actually making good questions, and if the examples provided - like the gun-homicide rate in the UK - were bad, then Alex
Jones has the task of answering and refuting those.
AJ was only able to keep calm for a couple of minutes, before going off like a maniac, making his stupid rants that have no information attached. I
actually find it ironic how so many people are saying this was staged, but then fail to see the tools that AJ uses to get influence and popularity.
The guy has a script in his head, and a bunch of emotional-argument stones in his pockets. He throws them around and waits for a response.
He got owned because Piers didn't lowered his interview standards despite the yelling, and mockery and complete lack of respect
It's a complete shock to me, how people find it acceptable that a guy who is invited to join his voice in a debate stage as important as CNN, and
makes a joke out of him, people who share his - basic - opinion or quite simply, endorse him.
The cherry on top for me was the final, constant, mentioning of his website, which I will refrain from saying because I want my fingers clean.
