IS ALEX JONES FOR REAL?

By Mike Adams Natural News August 22, 2011 One of the most common question I’m asked these days is also one of the easiest to answer: Is Alex Jones for real? In a word, yes. But there’s more to it than that, of course. The whole story doesn’t become fully apparent until you’re hanging around Alex Jones in person, at his studios in Austin, and talking with the entire crew of mission-driven people who produce the InfoWars / PrisonPlanet material that has grown into a global media giant (and a force of truth to be reckoned with). As someone who is a regular in-studio guest on the Alex Jones Show — and an occasional fill-in host on the few days when Alex isn’t hosting the show himself — I’ve had the opportunity to spend some time with Alex Jones behind the scenes. Off the air. And that’s where this story begins to get even more interesting. Because Alex Jones is the same authentic person off-air as he is on-air. Alex isn’t an act, in other words. He’s the real deal, and the authenticity of who he is and what he believes comes through 100 percent whether he’s speaking to an audience of millions or just chatting with you in the hallway. Perhaps that’s why we get along so well. I have zero tolerance for B.S. in the people I choose to support or spend time with, and spending time around Alex makes it apparent that he feels exactly the same way. That’s probably why so many of our heroes are the same people — people who aren’t afraid to tell the truth and don’t pull any punches: Gov. Jesse Ventura, Rep. Ron Paul, Paul Craig Roberts, Gerald Celente and so on. It’s also probably why neither one of us wears makeup on camera, and we don’t dress up with a special on-camera wardrobe (I usually show up at his studio with my blue jean ranch shirt). Alex doesn’t wear a bunch of bling, and he doesn’t drive some fancy car to try to impress people on the road. He’s here to share his analysis on what’s really happening with the world, and he doesn’t try to sugar coat it or spice up the ratings by hiring some supermodel to mindlessly read a teleprompter (CNN, anyone?).
