Info-Spats: Conspiracy Theorists Are Sick of Alex Jones

Info-Spats: Conspiracy Theorists Are Sick of Alex Jones


Hath Frankenstein’s monster begun killing its creator?

Alex Jones, the boisterous voice of a cult of conspiracy that questions, quite literally, everything from the legitimacy of terrorist attacks to the use of artificial sweeteners like aspartame, might have started getting just a tad too paranoid for the community that he’s had such a huge part in building.

Whether he’s ranting incoherently about gun control on Piers Morgan or arguing that the bombing at the Boston Marathon was a government orchestrated “false flag” attack complete with actors, more and more conspiracy theorists are doing their best to distance themselves from Jones.


The latest, and one of the most public, efforts to push back against Jones’ particular brand of government distrust comes from Films for Action, a popular hub for the promotion of alternative, independent films and media.

After being questioned numerous times at their failure to include any Infowars or Prison Planet documentaries, Films for Action took the opportunity to release a statement about why their decision to steer away from Alex Jones was a conscious decision from the get-go.

Here’s a sizeable chunk from their lengthy statement:

Unfortunately, we feel it would be irresponsible to promote Alex Jones, his websites, or any of his films. His films were always overly sensational and hyperbolic, but over the years the assertions he makes in his films and on his radio show have gotten increasingly outlandish and unsubstantiated. There are nuggets of truth and important perspectives hidden in the films, but they are buried under so many wild claims, tabloid style rhetoric, fear-mongering, and misleading conclusions that sifting the valid points from the misinformation would take more time than most folks have the patience for. See thisthisthis,this, and this, for a handful of examples.

Most skeptical people will have written off his ideas (and anything associated with it, including, likely, this site) long before the film finishes.

We believe the goal of the alternative media is to eventually become the mainstream media – a media for and by the people, rather than a media for and by corporate interests. The alternative media that we imagine is one that has the potential to be welcomed into the homes of virtually everyone. We want to demonstrate the best of what the alternative media is and could be.

This means presenting information in a credible fashion, and not promoting misinformation or misleading meta-narratives about our world. It means following diligently the ethical principles and standards of the best journalists.

Infowars appeals to a certain niche conspiracy audience, but beyond this niche, it is not of much use for reaching people ‘beyond the choir’ – in fact the presentation and substance of Infowars is quite alienating and off-putting to most people. Right now on Infowars minded sites and Facebook pages, they are focusing their attention on occult messages being placed in the movies The Dark Knight Rises and The Hunger Games that allude to the latest two gun massacres being pre-planned events staged by the New World Order. Stuff like this has become conspiracy porn for a growing audience, which we find quite troubling, as focusing on these types of dead ends keep people distracted from doing anything that could effectively end the systems of power these websites claim to decry.

We must regretfully conclude that Alex Jones does more harm to the movement than good.

That last line seems to pretty well sum up a growing opinion for conspiracy theorists, an opinion that when it comes to spreading the “truth” – their truth, however suppressed, uncomfortable, or bizarre that “truth” may be, Alex Jones is no longer the right man for the job.

So what do you think? Has the godfather of the “Truther Movement” gotten just a little too big for his tin-foil britches? Or is Films for Action just another government disinformation agent?

Alex Jones has become synonymous with “insane, paranoia-spouting retard” in many circles, and with good reason. He’s excessively paranoid, thinks yelling down opposition makes him right, and is so obnoxious that he does more harm than good to his own work.

i think you are all fraud. here is why (i.e. you censor the truth):

The first time I ever heard of Alex Jones was with his work on Bohemian Grove and some of his stuff seemed legit but his whole wrantings about how the global elite are all Satansits is a little of there.

I think that, in a way, Jones is following the same path as Richard Hoagland & Linda Moulton Howe: after initially making important contributions, their later endeavors are only adding more useless noise to the alt-news blogosphere.

Perhaps it is the fate of all who choose to linger too long in this maddening realm. So in a way they are now cautionary tales to all of us.

It happens so subtly too that you don’t even realize it’s happening. I’ve been at the dinner table with my family and have been talking about things in the news or what-have-you and I would say something about an issue or a story that sounds more conspiratorial than I gave the comment initial credence for. The effect…blank stares. Then I REALLY listen to what I just said and thought, “Damn, I sound like Alex Jones!” Not a good comparison to have when you have a self-realization moment. Almost makes you feel violated.

The people who don’t listen to his show seem to know everything he says? Alex Jones is the enemy so its him against the world. His rants are things that he can prove or has proof of (no ghosts or ufos with et driving). Alex is a very dangerous man who don’t have a leash. He built it all himself so he is the boss. You have to look at where the info is coming from that says he’s a bad man.A lot of powerful people don’t like what he says. You have to remember how disinformation is used and… Read more »
Of course he says to look it up yourself. That’s how he garner’s loyalty by telling people to use their own brains. The problem is that hardly anybody ever really does look it up for themselves and if they do look it up they are already fans of his and only look at supporting sites and references. He knows this and capitalizes on it. Rarely do I imagine any real fan of Jones to look at his trite skeptically and responsibly. He and they (his fans) would all just rather sit and listen to him pontificate louder than his opponents… Read more »

Has anyone ever actually tried to look it up???? What you find won’t resemble what Alex Jones said it is. Nor have the connections he claims. I have friends who base Alex’ credibility on that very phrase “don’t take my word look it up yourself” but are too lazy to do it! And Alex knows that. So he can use that phrase for credibility and get away with it. Its as much bull as the rest of what he says.

I liked what he was doing early on and thought he really focused attention on some screwy things going on out there. But as time has passed, he seems like he’s getting louder and crazier with nothing to back it up. That CNN interview with Morgan was embarrassing and grating and didn’t do folks who like to look beyond the “official explanation” of things one bit of good.

I’ve never been a fan to be honest although I adore Max Keiser even during things like that show he did on Greek TV where he became so turbo rabid at times I literally hid behind the furniture. Maybe what Alex needs is a countbalancing force somewhat akin to Stacy Herbert but in his defence it must be a bit like working in a plutonium power plant where you’re being exposed to all these toxic materials on a daily basis but because everybody seems only vaguely interested you constantly have to keep working yourself into a frenzy just to stop… Read more »

Jones represents a side of all of us that we rarely turn to the mirror to see… even those of us who are politically devoted, hold quiet suspicions of those whom we serve.

He’s good, for now. Let him rant on. Right or wrongs, he’s good for all of us.

The problem is that people don’t recognize actual insanity when they see it these days. And that’s because they’ve been primed with so many conspiracy theories, they’re started to think that the guy ranting might know secrets they don’t. Fortunately for me, I HAVE seem actual insanity. Here are the hallmarks to look for. Inconsistency. Incoherence. Theories that have no basis in fact, that are then used as “facts” in new theories. Ignorance of Science, and an insistence on revisionist History to support their theories. Rage when anyone questions their research. Paranoia. Add any three of these together, and you’ve… Read more »
Yeah, Alex must be making a fortune by giving away all of his content for free. Great business model if you’re just concerned with getting rich.And, for the record Alex has been: Consistent-just one example, he’s been telling you all about govt spying through corporations for years. Prism/Echelon/Carnivore/TIA anyone? Incoherent-sure, he gets a little loud but actually, if you bother to listen, his arguments are extremely eloquent, erudite and very well considered. Oh, and backed up with evidence as well Theories that have no basis in fact-this shows you’ve never actually listened to what he has to say Ignorance of… Read more »

Yes. And Jones needs to learn when to shut up when he is interviewing people.

Never liked him much myself. Not everything is a conspiracy. Plus he’s a member of the “If I yell loudly enough people will believe me” club. It is possible to make a point without acting like a fool. Evidently no one has pointed that out to him.

I’m increasingly of the opinion that Alex Jones is a “false flag” himself. That whilst he may have started off with a true intent to scratch away at some of the nuggets of truth, and indeed done something to uncover them, those very same corporate interests, finding themselves under increasing threat of discovery, have simply bought him off, paying him to become a ranting bucket of such outlandish and unsubstatiated claims that whatever truths have been revealed are simply dismissed with all the other tinfoil-hat ranting. The ultimate example of hiding in plain sight.


wow talk about paranoid and insanity most of the comments I have read in this article are full of it and biased you are defeating your purpose in starting an alternate news.there is much truth in what alex jones has to say but yes his delivery does make people shy away from what he says.all news is controlled and there seams to be a truth censorship controlled by this now and this has been proven that alone should tell you something how much more are we not being told.i hope you do not catch this professional skeptics syndrome or the… Read more »
There’s nothing wrong with having a filter on what you believe in or who you listen to. Alex Jones has gone far, far around the bend, jumping at shadows and calling conspiracy at everything he sees. Boston wasn’t a false flag, it was a tragedy. Oklahoma wasn’t a sign of HAARP going nuts, it was a sign that nature can be – and has been – remarkably unpredictable as of late. And Alex Jones isn’t some kind of government agent sent to discredit the fringe, he’s just a man who’s disappeared so far down his personal rabbit hole that he’s… Read more »

A thousand amens! If we could react to the unpredictability of the world we might learn something useful. If we place our blame of such events in the wrong place conspiratorially then we won’t learn anything about our world or how to adapt to its changes.

i see you have not learned to think outside the box and open your eye to what is truly happening in the world.there is a highly regarded news agency with over fifteen writers it is (veteranstoday) they have many articles on the boston bombing in which they have proof that it was indeed a false flag incident and if you read more of there articles they do indeed have proof of many atrocities and conspiracies.many peoples belief system includes rose colored glasses and some are highly religious and many are scared to death to think openly or outside the box… Read more »

Moderation my good man. Those who constantly “think outside the box” are usually the ones confined IN that box.

Grow up, bud.

This article brought to you courtesy of the Disinformation Campaign of Amerika….

has everyone forgotten that alex jones said the bp oil spill wasnt real. or casually walked into one of the most secured areas on planet earth, and not one gaurd noticed him, if he was legit, he would have had a jack boot on his neck, and a muzzle in his mouth

seems to me this attack on jones coming from the MSM has its point.

certainly if he were not being effective there would be no attack.

so now you “look” at jones in a different way because the “thought” has been presented to you.

intelligent people take the truth were it is found.

Don’t forget: the company who put out this statement about Alex is most definitely not mainstream. In fact, they only focus on “alternative” media. More and more, it seems like people are starting to distance themselves from Alex Jones. I don’t doubt that his causes were, at least at one time, noble. Maybe he actually believes they still are.. but he’s kind of just devolved into a guy who screams for a living and insists the government is behind every single problem in the world. Sure, he gets one right now and then, but when you throw so many things… Read more »
akex jones may have been legit when he started- meaning he may have had good intentions- but he’s clearly sold out long ago. his ego is way out of control which mneans that despite his powerful 3rd eye- ajna chakra- and ability to see into and beyond and through false things, official govt liars, malefic corporate schemes, intl war profiteering/mongering, elitist satanism, etc. his overblown ego and mental/psychological imbalance (imbalance in eastern philosophical terms/kabbalistic balance-physical, emotional, mental, spiritual balance) skews proper (balanced) perception. <-that, if he's still sincere- which i doubt. the nail in the coffin for alex jones was… Read more »

Interestingly, one must wonder about psyops when Alex Jones comes up. He has brought some good information to the front, however his lack of solutions actually creates the agitation needed to keep people in a suggestible hypnotic state. Disinfo works by providing mostly truth with small nuggets of the big lie scattered about. Without knowing enough about the real truth it becomes hard to spot the lie particles.

Boston had false flag written all over it. Last night, Rense had a guest with tons more evidence. And, AJ did not say HAARP did oklahoma, you are buying into the propaganda. I heard him live, he said basically “I dont know if HAARP was in involved in Oklahoma, but I do know they manipulate the weather” Too many people twist his words, I know because I listen to him in the background while doing chores. They twist his words, put it on a website and everyone automatically believes it. Most websites that put down AJ are the same ones… Read more »

You just paraphrased Alex Jones while complaining that people paraphrase Alex Jones incorrectly.

John Dockum

Is my picture working now?

Jones is on point about false flags and clues regarding them spiked in contemporary films and his overall persona has been crafted to deeply polarize the people getting the info. If you were new to the game and just getting the info that the same woman has shown up in Colorado, Sandy Hook and Boston, you’d be a little shocked to say the least and here comes Jones, panting, sweating, shouting, deriding, etc. and you’re supposed to take all this in while William Jennings Bryan on acid is telling you you’re a fool for not believing it. This is a… Read more »

He steers away from the Jesuit discussion as well. I’ve heard a caller call in about it and he quickly overrode the guy from talking like he usually does and told him to send to his email and his writers will look into it.

There’s no such thing as bad publicity. You folks are pikers at trashing Jones with both of your paid bloggers posting under different names. this kind of things only sends the honestly curious to investigate for themselves, with the majority of them becoming fans. He welcomes your blather. The fact is, his popularity is soaring exponentially world-wide, driving the news cycle and redefining the American outlook. Your project mockingbird, ham-handed efforts to take him down a notch are analogous to a fart in a tornado on several different levels. One would think You’d have learned a lesson for the lame… Read more »
It’s about time someone from the alt media pointed out what a lot of us have known for quite some time. Alex Jone$ is part of the controlled opposition. His primary concerns are making $$ first, fear-mongering second. His wife is Jewish, which is fine, but why hide the fact? Even if you are a whistle-blower and get invited on his $how, he are NOT allowed to mention anything to do with the Jesuits, at all, period. Sorry Alex Jone$, while you did help “wake up” a lot of people, we are now soooo awake that we now know you… Read more »
Yes, there is much to be said about the Jesuits. Dr Midas Riff is quite right in this area. Alex Jones wants you to get really agitated about the NWO(correct), The Bildebergers(correct), Corruption in Washington D.C.(correct), The Georgia Guide Stones(correct), HAARP(correct) and on and on. What he does is, he stops in the middle of the race and then claims victory accompanied by a smattering of “I told you so”. Instead of continuing the pursuit of information, he stops. He will not say a word about Jesuits and their constant involvement, corruption and their sabotage of this world. This is… Read more »
If you’re not mentioning the jews, you’re just whistling Dixie. This guy is straight up dis-info right outta israhell. PERIOD! There is no need to go into an overly worded synopsis. Being overly nice or verbose about the guy does damage as well. IF YOU ARE NOT MENTIONING THE JEWS AND THERE STRANGLE HOLD OVER LITERALLY EVERY FUCKIN ASPECT OF OUR LIVES, THEN YOU ARE FULL OF SHIT AND ARE A COWARD. INTERNATIONAL JEWRY IS THE ENEMY OF ALL GOYIM (NON JEWS) IN THE WORLD. IF YOU RUN FROM THIS COMMENT, YOU ARE PART OF THE JEWISH CONTROL GRID AND… Read more »

He is either ignorant of real WWII era history, or purposely lies about it.

I love Alex Jones.I evennamed my beautiful canary after him.You ought to hear that canary sing!

Alex is the son of a wealthy family. Alex makes points about, Governments, banks, corporation. But when it comes to the personage the controls these entities he points at royals, elected leaders, Catholic Church, Satin worship etc. But ignores the Zionist agenda completely. The beast Alex is exposing has multiple heads and is not harmonious at the top. If it were harmonious we all would have been enslaved years and years ago. These powerful groups are fighting each other for power and control within their circle. Alex by ignoring some of the parts of the whole is in essence supplying… Read more »
P.S. Something you all need to know NOW. It is something you know in the back of your mind. It is something the elites know and is driving their agendas against the clock. They have been telling us this in vocabulary. “level playing field” “limited resource” “sustainability” are a few of these key terms that not only the elites need to understand. YOU DO! Put yourself at the top of the pyramid and look at the issues presented to you. My question to you is. Who are ya going to kill? Who presents the greatest threat? How do you propose… Read more »

moderator- is the acknowledgement the above perspective forbidden ? or are you yourself still thinking on it? Please post it. People need to start looking at the big picture as the elites always have.

NoNameWorker: I have to disagree and agree with you. You are right he doesn’t mention the zionists threat, but neither does he mention the Vatican or the Catholic church either. The zionists are just a front for Rome and the Catholic Church. The pope owns most of the land in Israel and the King of Jersualam is King Juan Carlos of Spain. But don’t take my word..Do your own research.

This is the direction people people need to pursue.

Like most people, Alex probably noticed some event that caught his attention because it just didn’t feel right and or sound right. In his process of trying to find out why this particular event didn’t seem right he had to dig deeper into the cause(s) behind the event and this exposed him to more and more information about the drivers behind events. Since most people live their lives in abysmal ignorance of the actual causes of world events, this expansion of awareness can initially lead them to go into various reactive mental states, from adamant denial, to cognitive dissonance, to… Read more »

I don’t see any valid points here. You’re writing for a spoof site and don’t appear to have the capacity to offer analysis.

When the mainstream wants us to look bad all they have to do is play a soundbite from any of his shows. He’s king though in many chat rooms and forums – a person can be flamed for days if they even suggest that one of his farts might smell bad.

His constant insane rage prevents me from showing his stuff to most people – 2-3 minutes of his spitting anger and people become afraid for me, “You watch this chit?” *LOL*

The only thing wrong with Alex Jones’ message is his personal delivery STYLE. He is right about over 90 percent of what he says. Of course with his blown up popularity, he is being scrutinized! But, many times, we need to listen to what people are saying, not how they are saying it. He is obviously upset by the state of the world. He is OUTRAGED. If more people were outraged by the inequalities, injustices, murders, and lies permeating the global infrastructure, maybe something would change. The problem is: there are so many tentacles reaching everywhere, no one knows where… Read more »

Alex Jones is a true American populist voice. He has done a much as anyone in recent history to ensure the age old human struggle for justice and liberty is not lost. Attempts to dismiss him as sensational are absurd and smack of petty self promotion.
The evils we face are much greater than even his hard hitting style can communicate.

If Jones is a true American populist voice, we are in serious trouble. He possesses no substance whatsoever, consisting only of outlandish hyperbole, screaming and mockery. His delivery is not far removed from that of an insecure school-yard bully; it is not something to laud as the epitome of American political discourse.

Alex Jones also has talked about israel many times, he just doesnt focus is on it 24/7 like others do. Not only that, but the zionists, and israel were birthed by the Rothchilds and he talks about them alot. And, it was just awhile back that he gave David Icke almost the entire show, and David talked nothing but about zionists. Talking about zionists all day like some websites do, would have his audience about 1000 people. He worked hard, got popular, and when someone gets popular the cockroaches all come out of the woodwork..I think truth should come out,… Read more »
Most opposed to Alex, haven’t listened to him more than a few times. If you listen, you know he backs things up with detail and documentation. Yet, he can’t be right 100 percent of the time. No one can. I find the links in the article that supposedly show his disinformation connection are just not proof at all. I think he is providing a great service and he is the one who opened my eyes to the reality of the world and how it operates. My criticism of him would be that he carries the ranting and raving way too… Read more »
alex jones is bad. bad man. ya know what? who cares. i listen to his radio show for the info that is presented. he has better guests than ANY news program out there. yes, i have to put up with his rants. so what, i also have to put up with tons of advertising. it all gets filtered. i want news. alex jones presesnts it. no he’s not the most talented film maker, but at least he presents information that doesn’t have anything to do with bigfoot or aliens. he also doesn’t spend much time bashing others in the media… Read more »

It’s not only that….if at all!

It’s Jones’ jew wife, who is bound hand and foot, to Israel. The objection NOT because of the religion, because she’s a jew, but because of the horrible crimes Israel is committing, has committed AGAINST the Palestinians, and Israel’s attacks on its neighbors ever since its monstrous fetal status and illegitimate birth.

In his marriage with a loyal Israeli, unfortunately, Jones, is also affiliated with Israel, as well being loyal to that country.

Bill Cooper warned us about Alex Jones *years* ago. ‘Nuff said.

Cooper saw right through him…….long before he was elevated as the spokesman for all conspiracy theorists. The act of labeling people as conspiracy nuts that see through the official media lies is another conspiracy.

Alex Jones is the turd in the punchbowl……..

Jones is a slick salesman and a showman. Don’t take my word for it, go to Austin and listen to people that have known him for years. He has wanted to be in Hollywood since he was a child and has tried and succeeded to some extent of surrounding himself with Hollywood types. He is nothing like the persona he presents. Off air he is foul mouth drinks,and according to some who have left his abode snorts coke. You know he supports smoking weed? But probably the biggest conspiracy around Jones comes from people in Austin and Dallas who claim… Read more »

I am sick of the documented garbage that the nose bleed elite are doing, not of Alex Jones who blows the whistle on them with proof. Your criticism is unsubstantiated and a hit piece of disgusting impetus.

Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Not only is he oversensational. He’s controlled opposition. His father in law is Edward Lowe Nichols who was in high positions in government during the late 70’s and was also ambasador to Rome. You can type his name in a search engine and one of first things to come up should be the baylor university facility page.

I decided to take you up on your challenge. I was not disappointed.

This explains much if even half of it is true.

I used search words ” Edward Lowe Nichols Alex Jones”

Good call!

All you need to see and know.

Alex is the most loved red-neck truth monger around the globe… the numbers speak for themselves. NOBODY is doing as much for freedom and liberty as this man !!!

Analyze what he says – NOT how he says it!

As long as I’ve tuned into Alex I’ve never heard him tell people to not file income taxes or try to get all their withholdings back. Smart move on his part – because if you start a fight with them – you’ll find out you’re all alone.

Germanic death cults, folks! You can’t make this stuff up, it’s Illuminati Nazi Bavarian takeover, total domination, folks! And I’m sick of it!! Nazis are coming, folks!… And now word from our Jewish sponsors. …Alex Jonestein is a true Paytriot… Stratfor employee of the year awarded since 1997.

I think his his message is clear, if you investigate things you will become like him… don’t investigate, stay inside the box, it is safer!

Some of what he says is clearly true but most of it lacks complete honesty.
Never goes into the power of the Zionists and their obvious connections to today’s events.
But actually despite that I have enjoyed a number of his videos!

Alex Jones has been accused of attacking others on radio and recently in the truth community–like Jeff Rense and Michael Collins Piper–for a while. You forget stuff like that when the information seems so important, but he has revealed what he really is–he tries to push out other who rell truth and make everything go through him and the Alex Jones machine. People need to think about what Jones DOESN’T blame or what he DOESN”T talk about. Many people associated with him are suspect too, in my opinion, so even more questioning is justified; I look cynically at his guests… Read more »
This article is misdirection. Maybe this entire site is controlled opposition. Attacking Alex Jones with such a broad brush is very suspicious. What have you done to change the political landscape and challenge the criminal cabal that has co-opted the US government? AJ does it every day – 24 hours a day. Many of the most vehement but honest skeptics DO check out what Jones says and they become transformed in their world views regarding government, politics and world enents. And why such a crude, vulgar and immature name for this website. It demonstrates a level of arrested and misguided… Read more »

Which part of West Virginia are you all from?

Alex Jones is such an obvious tool of the establishment I’d say his closest counterpart would be Matt Drudge. If they were really alternative in their views, they would never be on main stream outlets such as BBC, CNN, MSNBC etc…Also how they came out of no where and become “established” as a go to source and have no funding problems is a little hint.

Seriously, guys? You’re doing the “Jews are evil” thing? What, is this 1950? At least choose the reptoids next time, they’re generally more fun and better for polite conversation.

Ctuton is a tool for AJ !!!
