Internationally recognized veteran broadcaster, documentary filmmaker, and investigative journalist Alex Jones has been featured as a prominent figure of the 9/11 Truth Movement in such publications as The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone Magazine and Popular Mechanics. He has appeared on Good Morning America, The View, 20/20 Downtown, 60 Minutes, The Discovery Channel, The History Channel, Fox News, CNN, TalkSport (UK), Russia Today, Channel 4 (UK), A&E, America’s most widely listened to late night radio show, Coast to Coast AM, C-Span, and many other venues. Patrick Beech of the Austin-American Statesman has described Jones as “an absolutely riveting television presence.”
A 2011 Rolling Stone article described Jones as “a giant in America’s conspiracy subculture,” with a subsequent in-depth profile adding that he made Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, “sound like tea-sipping NPR hosts on Zoloft.”
Many have attributed Jones’ success to him being at the innovative forefront of viral media, a process that began right at the start of his documentary film career with Jones encouraging viewers to make copies of his work to increase distribution and get the word out.
“Alex Jones is a model for people to create their own media,” Michael Harrison, editor of the industry trade magazine Talkers, told Rolling Stone writer Alexander Zaitchik. “When the history is written of talk broadcasting’s transition from the corporate model of the 20th century to the digital, independent model of the 21st century, he will be considered an early trailblazer.”
As a dedicated and aggressive Constutionalist, Jones consistently defends the Bill of Rights, property rights, and our nation’s borders. In the spirit of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, Jones passionately argues against foreign entanglements and wars for the sake of corporate and banking interests. Jones avoids the bogus political labels of “left and right” and instead focuses on what really matters — what’s right and wrong. As a tenacious journalist, Jones has broken hundreds of national stories over the span of his career, a feat that led to Matt Drudge giving Infowars.com a much coveted spot on the permanent links section of his hugely influential and highly trafficked website, DrudgeReport.com.
Jones’ mission is to re-ignite the spirit of 1776 and stand as an example of the fact that one man can build a vocal media platform without the aid of big corporate news networks that only serve to compromise and dilute the core message of freedom and liberty.
Jones began his career in Austin, Texas, with a live, call-in format cable access television program. In 1996, he hosted a show dubbed The Final Edition on KJFK, and the following year he debuted his first documentary, America Destroyed By Design. In 1999, he tied with Shannon Burke of KJFK 98.9FM for that year’s “Best Austin Talk Radio Host” poll as voted by The Austin Chronicle readers.
Alex’s mainstay is his nationally syndicated news-talk show from his studio in Austin and broadcast on the Genesis Communication Network, based in Minnesota. The Alex Jones Show airs on over 60 AM, FM, and shortwave stations across the United States Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m.—2:00 p.m. Central Standard Time. As well, Alex’s show is the largest draw for the talk genre on Shoutcast and the Internet. Alex does a syndicated and nationally broadcast Sunday show on Emmis Communications’ KLBJ 590 AM in Austin, Texas.
Jones is recognized for his incisive and hard-hitting interviews with a wide range of guests. Prominent guests include Willie Nelson, Charlie Sheen, Chuck Norris, Jesse Ventura, Ted Nugent, Lou Dobbs, Tommy Chong, Christine Ebersole, Ed Asner, and others. Regular guests include Aimee Allen, William Rodriguez, professor Steven E. Jones, the late Aaron Russo, David Ray Griffin, Jeff Rense, David Icke, Jim Marrs, Mike Rivero, Webster Tarpley, Paul Craig Roberts, and Bob Chapman. Alex has interviewed hundreds of politicians, government officials, researchers, political activists, authors, economists, political analysts, scientists, and entertainers, including Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Ralph Nader, Chuck Baldwin, George Galloway, Gore Vidal, Greg Palast, David Lynch, Joseph Stiglitz, Andreas von Bülow, Noam Chomsky, Pat Buchanan, Eva Orner, and even David Mayer de Rothschild, to name but a few.
Alex’s interview with actor Charlie Sheen, who disputed the official explanation of the attacks of September 11, 2001, received mainstream notice on CNN Showbiz Tonight, Fox News’ Hannity & Colmes, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Willie Nelson’s questioning of 9/11 on Alex’s radio show resulted in Fox News‘ Bill O’Reilly featuring the iconic musician and political activist on the “Pinheads & Patriots” segment of his O’Reilly Factor television show. Nelson also called for the impeachment of Bush on Alex’s show. As well, former Minnesota governor and actor Jess Ventura received criticism across the range of the corporate media for his questioning the collapse of the WTC buildings, making the comparison with that of a controlled demolition, an area Ventura is knowledgeable in as a former Navy SEAL with demolition experience.
“If you’ve never heard of Alex Jones, then you’ve been missing out on some of the most dynamic, hard-hitting radio on the planet,” explains ZDNet. “This guy is a national treasure, a light breaking through the electronic Berlin Wall of the US media establishment,” adds BBC investigative journalist Greg Palast.
