FRONTLINE: How the Candidate Echoed the Conspiracy Theorist on the Campaign Trail
quote:

... A new FRONTLINE documentary traces how the alliance between Jones and Trump, facilitated by Stone, would help to bring conspiracy theorist thought into the political mainstream — ushering in the current era, in which misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic has spread like the virus itself.

That documentary, United States of Conspiracy, includes a striking sequence that illustrates how Trump adopted Jones’ claims — voicing them publicly in a way that shocked even InfoWars staffers as he ran for the highest office in the land.

“I mean, sometimes it was, like, verbatim — like, really Trump, really? You’re taking his word for it?” former InfoWars staffer Rob Jacobson says.

Embedded at the top of this story, the sequence juxtaposes clips of Jones sharing false and conspiratorial claims about then-President Barack Obama, Senator Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton with Trump making strikingly similar claims at rallies and in interviews.

The presidential candidate’s echoing of Jones on the campaign trail was a significant development in the mainstreaming of conspiracy theorist thought. And it stunned author Jon Ronson, a renowned expert on extremism who has been following Jones for 20 years.

“The big shock was Alex having the ear of a president-to-be,” Ronson says in the excerpt. “Of all the people I’ve interviewed over 35 years, I can think of a lot of people I would rather have the presidency than Alex Jones. It’s a bit of a shame that one of the most spiraling people I’ve ever met is the one who is influencing Trump.”

Alex Jones
quote:

Alexander Emric (or Emerick) Jones (born February 11, 1974)[1][2] is an American far-right[10] radio show host and conspiracy theorist.[18] New York magazine has described Jones as "America's leading conspiracy theorist",[19] and the Southern Poverty Law Center describes him as "the most prolific conspiracy theorist in contemporary America".[20] He hosts The Alex Jones Show from Austin, Texas, which the Genesis Communications Network syndicates[21] across the United States and online.[22] Jones' website, InfoWars, is derived from conspiracy theories and fake news,[23][24][25] as are his other websites NewsWars and PrisonPlanet.

Jones promoted conspiracy theories about the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting.[26] He has also accused the US government[27] of planning the Oklahoma City bombing,[28] the September 11 attacks,[29] and falsifying details regarding the 1969 Moon landing.[30] He has claimed that several governments and big businesses have colluded to create a "New World Order" through "manufactured economic crises, sophisticated surveillance tech and—above all—inside-job terror attacks that fuel exploitable hysteria".[31]

Mainstream sources have described Jones as a conservative,[32] far-right,[33][34] alt-right,[35] and a conspiracy theorist.[36][37][38][39] Jones has described himself as a paleoconservative[40] and a libertarian.[41] The latter claim is disputed by libertarians.[42][43]

alex jones is still around? He admitted he was psychotic. Maybe that was just to get out of a Sandy Hook lawsuit: "Yeah, I'm a f*cking lunatic!"Wink   ;) So what's the excuse for his audience?

This lying has been going on for more than five years.

How come neither the Democrats nor the news media have been making a picnic of it?

How does Trump do that, and why has he been getting away with it for all these years?

Does anyone yet know how Alex Jones was able to get away with this for so long?

And why he was permitted to continue even when he was before a court saying he suffered from a psychosis which denied him the ability to tell right from wrong, fact from fiction.

I gave up on parody of RW nuts... you just can't differentiate satire from their unreal reality. Liberty Food Buckets have gotta contain some bags of meth, given alex's behavior.

Five years of Trump.

Along with all too many of the posts here, including the voluminous c&p's.

Add to that a poster here found it necessary to dig up that five-year-old site.

Why?

Judging from many of the comments here I suspect our TV news broadcasts are more reliable than yours.

Before the 2016 election all I knew about him was he was a big deal in real estate and played a role in a TV program I could never bring myself to watch.

Did hope his business background and friendship with Putin might bring about a change in attitude.

Wasn't long before I gave up any hope of that.

Then we had his love affair with Kim Jong-un. That didn't last long, did it.
