Alex Jones and info wars. Fact or fiction?

After wandering the net studying news sources for the election I stumbled upon an angry 40 something that speaks a lot of hard words. This thread is going to be about his theories and about our members thoughts about them.

So... Does anybody follow his streaming programs? It's been only a short time that I've been listening.

I admittedly, am a huge Alex Jones fan. *Flame suit on* I will say he was much better a few years ago. He has been on the frontline of exposing The Bilderberg Group and Bohemian Grove since the beginning. If you are a believer in the NWO, then AJ is great. I will say infowars is pretty hated in the MSM (not surprisingly) but if you go back to what he has said for years... much has come true. Take what he says with a grain of salt, he has ADD x1000 and constantly gets off topic.

I've listened to him a few times, what he says is pretty funny. I couldn't imagine someone taking him at face value though, a lot of fringe theories and conjecture. He makes a living making wild accusations and perpetuating whatever the popular conspiracy theories are at the time, whatever keeps his viewers coming back and gets him attention. My impression of him is his show is made to be an entertainment program, and with his theories he just throws stuff at the wall to see what sticks instead of developing coherent and thoughtful ideas.

Would you feel that his theories about Hillary Clinton bear any weight? Specially in regards to her emails and her health?

Yeah I mainly watch him for entertainment, the guy is freaking hilarious. I will say he has a very good understanding of world history with facts and documents to back it up. A good amount of his theories are sub-par and he has a bunch of click-baity headlines. Many times he is spot on though.

I like listening to all the old farts around me at work. It's been kind of surreal that a great deal of talk from these 50-70 year old dinosaurs sound just like Alex Jones.

His nwo talk is hugely entertaining.

Yeah the guy has a pretty epic voice, you gotta admit.

watch 13:45 to the end.

This is basically the last time someone invited him on national television. So petty. Shit has me rolling every time.

I haven't been following his coverage of Clinton's campaign so I can't comment.

I remember that thing with him and Piers Morgan, the shouting match. Good stuff.

He seems like a huge lunatic and troll, and this is coming from somebody who is a right-leaning Independent.

Ah, but when you are young and have been "educated" by liberals, you live in an alternate universe and have been totally deprived of relevant information necessary to round out your education.

AJ is great, youtube some of his "Rant" compilations. I used to think the guy was a complete nutjob honestly, but it's quite amazing how on point he's been over the years. Now, he's obviously been WAAAAY off on other stuff, so of course you have look up other sources regarding some of the things he talks about before you believe them.

Personally, I'd trust AJ now over the vast majority of media in this country who are bought and paid for by the left. I think his heart is in the right place, unlike the MSM.

I just started listening to him, I think his news coverage is pretty good overall but he does do the video cuts that he criticize the old media of doing and he also goes a bit off the deep in trying to sale his snake oil.

He is slowly losing his mind, one dose of super male vitality at a time. It's like a train wreck that you can't stop watching.
