Sorry, Scott. Alex Jones is not outside the mainstream for a huge amount of gun owners. Go take a small sniff around the stories dominating conservative media and you'll see tons of Alex Jones-types talking about how Sandy Hook was a govt job or the death of a gun enthusiast in Georgia was a government hit. The Natl Review might not like his style, but that is a significant part of their base.
You're wrong. Jones is a 9/11 truther. That is almost exclusively left-wing territory. He also has done kissy-face interviews with Alan Grayson and Cindy Sheehan, amongst other lefties. Jones is simply all over the map and – more than anything else – just likes the sound of his voice.
I check out a lot of conservative media , and none of them have been pulling this conspiracy crapola with Sandy Hook.
Robet Costa nailed it. CNN's attempts to link the NRA and other gun-rights groups to that crackpot Alex Jones is thoroughly dishonest and shameful.
So pick out the poorest thinker? My choice: Washington Post guy.
