    I don't see Alex Jones name posted on your page for today's show. Is your cable TV network so paranoid of what the man and his network has to say about current events that even the posting of his name is taboo? I need to give people a heads up, the man the CNN network has black listed is only being invited on the CNN network in person, so that the network will have a chance to do a character assassination of the man and his media network. That is there plan, so if you are aware of the intent before hand you can watch them in the act and ask yourself why CNN is doing that, who does CNN work for and what is the end game. Go to infowars dot com and then go to the free you tube channel to educate yourself of the current events you were never told about on CNN.

    Alex Jones was detained by TSA and discriminated against.

    Alex Jones cannot be displayed on some web forums because of propaganda and censorship.

    Your reserve during this 1-7 show is, to say the least, admirable.

    If you read 'true' news, it won't be read here. In Middle Eastern news.. they will tell you.. that Syrians WANT Assad.
    They also believe that the opposition is not Syrians at all.. they are bought and paid for by those who still want a NWO.
    Of course the media here won't tell you that. They still believe you are sheep and will believe that Assad is the worst man on the planet. I agree with you Steelrules. Now about bringing up the real criminals like Bush and Obama and Cheney for 'their war crimes' on Americans AND the Middle East.

    You can have whatever opinion of Alex Jones you want but you can't accuse him of dishonesty. Which makes him a member of a very small group. Can't think of anyone in Washington DC that meets that standard.
