    I always thought that it was a big missed opportunity for Hillary not to call Trump out in one of the debates for his willingness to praise Alex Jones. Pointing out that Trump was a fan of the leader of the Sandy Hook truthers would have been a great card to play, particularly with suburban women.

    Ryan Seacrest is denying it too. Can you start a thread on that as well?

    Are you unable to start your own thread? If so, you might want to reach out to MR.

    On a political and conspiracy theory level - I don't think you can group Seacrest and Jones in the same pool. Further, while both seem to have sexual abuse allegations, Jones' allegations are wider in scope as they aren't just sexual in nature.

    Well, I know if you were a fan of word association games, saying 'Alex Jones' was a great way to get someone to say 'frothing'.

    The best part of that, if I hadn't included the link, you'd think it was all true because it's classic Jones. :p

    So Jones is an ass clown, realy I think he fancies himself an entertainer.

    He does have quite a following, and lots of those people vote. Nothing much that can or should be done about it, people can believe anything they want, say, about, anything they want, make money, about, anyway they want.

    I think the anti-semitism might be a bridge too far, considering, I heard his wife was a Jew, but I don't know that for a fact, not that it matters to me anyway.

    I think liberals hate Jones because he rails against the progressive agenda, but I don't think they'll change any votes by these name callng attacks, Jones followers expect the name calling and character assassination. It just adds credibility to Jones and the things he says.

    Really Jones panders to paranoides, he will embrace any conspiracy theory out there, just to get a few more dollars.

    Some of his stuff is really entertaining, if you like doom porn, but his embracement of anything and everything in order to get more hits, views, likes, and subscriptions does the most to hurt his credibility.

    In the end of the day, it's not news, just like cable news isn't news, it's entertainment.

    He’s a reprehensible sorry excuse for a human being who deserves to be hated and slandered by anyone win a modicum of decency.
