Liberal media strategy: find wackos and give them airtime. Call them legit and let them rant.... Profit.

Alex Jones took down the infamous "fire alarm" video where he absolutely freaked out because there was a fire alarm at his hotel.

It was amazing.

Alex Jones does not speak for any gun owner I know. He's a freak.

Cybernetic: Apos: cman: Alex Jones threads are my fav. It is the only time where partisanship can be transcended with many o' us agreeing that he is a moran

When Glen Beck lambasts you, you know you belong in a padded room.

That's what irritates me about the whole Piers Morgan/Alex Jones thing. Alex Jones is a nut and a kook, and I can only think of a few reasons for Piers Morgan to give him airtime, none of which reflect well on Morgan:

1) Morgan believes that Jones is representative of the political right, in which case Morgan is an ignorant fool.
2) Morgan wants to falsely portray Jones as representative of the political right, in which case Morgan is a disingenuous partisan hack.
3) This was a ratings stunt, in which case Morgan is sleazeball who will put anything on the air if it grabs a few extra eyeballs.


Yes, because Jones is all by himself in that nut and kook category.

All you have to do is read the comments from this Politico article.  He is by no means alone.

You do realize that Morgan was fired from his previous job for making up news stories and had to testify in British court on hacking celebrities phones in England, right? Morgan should be a key grip, or best boy on a set right now, not the host of his own prime time show.

Tinfoil hat, or not, Jones said the truth last night, and he was right to be a little flustered.

While those in the news proclaim a non bias and that they don't want to take all of the guns away, just "assault weapons," Diane Feinstein already introduced a bill last week that practically takes away everyone's guns if it passes. The news attempts to create this idea that we all need to just sit down and think these things out, all the while the wheels are already in motion to not just limit certain firearms, but ban them.

If Morgan debates a gun owner who is well-spoken, he gets his ass handed to him (as when he tried to spar with Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America). By picking a fringe character like Alex Jones, he can portray all gun owners as kooks.

hubiestubert: That is really the sad thing. This ISN'T a good con. This isn't even a decent con. It's just spouting crazy, and hoping that a few rubes will bite, and playing the numbers that there's a sucker born every minute


But that's the thing... pretending to be batshiat crazy is a good con when your costs of delivery are low enough. If you want to con people one at a time, in person, you have to spend time to carefully choose a gullible rube. You don't want to waste your time with someone who catches on halfway through, and you avoid having people catch on by hiding your true intentions.

But when you con people on TV, the Radio, or Spam emails, you want the gullible rubes to choose you. You avoid having people catch on by being so blatantly obvious in your con that only the stupidest, most gullible people will even start to listen, and everyone else in the whole world ignores them.

It's the same reason that Nigerian spammers go out of their way to make it obvious that they're sending you a scam email. The only people who bother to reply are so far beyond stupid that the spammers can sell them anything.
 
2013-01-09 12:00:38 AM  
I just watched the Alex Jones & Pierce Morgan interview about 10 minutes ago. What is sad is that the Jones guy is pretty much like every NRA member I have ever spoken to and not that far right of most of most republicans. Its a very thin line between republican and full on crazy like this guy.

No, it's just an obvious con. Don't get me wrong, I can respect being at least up front about it, but I prefer to see folks at least show some modicum of art to it. There are standards...

The guy is a hoot. If you can dig up an old shortwave radio he can be found a numerous spots on the dial. I heard him a few nights ago spouting off about being targeted. When I first found him I though my audio or radio was farked. If there ever was the perfect smoker's voice that man has it.
In my local area he comes in strong on 4840khz.

Shortwave radio, the only place crazier than the internet. Radio preachers are also a hoot. found one the other day talking about reaching the "sacrificial quota" IE the number of babies that need to be killed/aborted for Jesus to show up. He said we are nearly there, but needed to crank it up to get there faster. It's odd hearing an anti-abortion nutter hoping for more abortions so that Jesus gets here faster and stop the whole mess.
/right now I am listening to alex trying to sing Metallica. outside of a street side hobo or crack head you don't see this stuff too often.

Because a man has passion over his rights. Because he yells his beliefs in the face of what he see's as opposition and oppression to his and his fellow mans freedoms, many of you jest that he is crazy.

And each of you, who call this man crazy, could not muster any courage of conviction that did not have state control or authoritarian rhetoric laced in its main stream media message.

You know, that exploitative fear of the death on CNN of those killed in your backyard, yet the silence of your concerns over the thousands of women, children AND men killed abroad as their agony and screams are silenced through war propaganda you brush off as meaningless or justified by the authorities that be.

You call yourselves liberals, democrats, republicans or just a concerned person.
You do not care, you're a statist authoritarian who has no soul or spirit of your own nor do you recognize the life around you.

You're just a clone, a carbon copy of all the sad people who think they are above it all.
You hide behind your humor, your smug online sense of omnipresence, behind your pointless drugs, your medication, your fears.

And what do you do to EMPOWER people, you don't know. Nothing, nothing of value.

You'd defend mob rule, than respect your fellow human beings rights to liberty and freedom.
You call yourselves enlightened, informed, you are not, you are only tools and entertainment pieces of your masters.

You empower no one.

Witness your own hypocrisy, your own dark humor and your own blindness in action.

No, let them go.  Let's see how Jones is just some lone kook and not representative of a great deal of those on the right in this country.  We've already got a few of his followers in this thread.  I would wager we will see a few more before it's dead.

Jones is just a foot soldier for the New World Order. His job is to make gun owners seem paranoid and delusional so fewer people will care when they take away their guns.

The thing that most drives me crazy about this whole debate is, ironically, the lack of discussion of mental health care. While idiots continue to say "If we arm people in schools they'll think twice!", they'll probably be right, they WILL think twice. Then they'll either plan and plot more carefully how to do it or they'll go to someplace that's not a school. Say, a movie theater.

If these guys get the health care they desperately need, they're less likely to kill...you know...ANYbody...

I think Piers is a f*cking idiot and a truly scummy human being. However, anyone who watched that "interview" who comes out on the side of Alex Jones should be f*cking committed.

That's coming from a gun owner.

Piers can say whatever he wants even if I disagree with him. Alex? He's a danger to himself and others and should be committed.

THIS.

First thing I thought when I heard about the Pier-Morgan/Alex Jones circle-jerk is that CNN has hit rock-bottom. Second thing I thought was that Jones probably has more fans than Piers, which supports the assertion that CNN has hit rock-bottom.

It makes me sad that such a show could even exist in today's society.

Yes lets have a civil and rational discussion on gun control.
But who can we get to advocate for gun owners?
I know just the guy!
