    Alex Jones is in a custody fight for his kids. And he claims that he's not nuts or a conspiracy theorist but that it's just all performance art.

    I would guess that most of the extreme talk show hosts are putting on an act since they know it pays good money.

    As you would expect Jones followers are already claiming the allegations of being performance art as fake news.

    It would be more forgivable for him to be a genuine nut bar. But inciting people for entertainment is, in my mind, worse.

    Wow, Newsweek has dropped even lower. Now it's playing the role of a trashy tabloid interested in the marital affairs of another person purely for political purposes.

    For them to sink even lower suggests that they must have put themselves in quite a hole after they had all those ‘Madam President’ editions printed and shipped.

    I watched one InfoWars video awhile ago and recall thinking many of these so-called "journalists" are out to do nothing more than provoke people. Since then, I stick mostly to BBC for news, so I had to Google this guy's name to figure out who he was (or pretends to be).

    What's even worse is when the left wing media knowingly reports fake news and BS narratives like BLM. It's as if they want to start a race war.

    No. And let's start on topic. What do you think of Alex Jones and his persona

    He is a hack but he does have some good content (by other writers) at times, no different than MSNBC, Fox, CNN and CC
