I know i have to be missing something here.
I answer this very question here-
Generate artificial interest, then collect data- how many support Alex Jones, do people sympathise with him etc?
The government is not interested in Alex Jones.
The government is not interested in ATS.

It's quite obvious that Alex Jones is a charlatan and a businessman. All he cares about is making money. He does this by being a shock jock that stirs the pot, says controversial things, and draws attention to himself by being outrageous (with both actions and words). The crazier he is, the more buzz he generates, which means more traffic and ultimately more money.
I always find it hilarious how hypocritical his supporters are. They constantly criticize the average person for blindly believing the brainwashing that is mainstream news, and yet they turn around and unquestionably accept everything Alex Jones says as gospel!
It's a dog and pony show. He goes into these events knowing full-well that he's going to blow up and purposely lose his cool, because he knows it will make headlines. Any news is good news for those in the entertainment industry; even with bad news or poor reputation, people are going to turn in to hear what crazy thing he says next.

Alex is just passionate about his thoughts and feelings and if he has facts and someone is trying to shut him up, he gets pissy. LOL That's how it seems to me at least. He has opened many eyes to conspiracies, he just gets a little wild at times.
