September 3, 2010: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – September 3, 2010

There seems to be a bit of a buzz around the internet concerning Alex Jones’ recent interview on ABC’s Nightline. Specifically, asking Jones why he allowed them to do an expected hit piece potraying the Truth Movement as “Paranoia Porn”?

The allegations are clearly pointing towards Jones purposely doing just that. But are they true?

Kenny’s Sideshow had this to say:

“It’s said that there’s no bad publicity and that may be true for AJ and his followers but for those others trying to sanely educate their friends and neighbors to the ‘conspiracies’ of the world that are destroying us, being portrayed as whacked out nuts doesn’t help.

“I doubt that Nightline would do a show with someone calm and collected such as Dr. David Ray Griffin on the subject of 9/11. That might give credibility to the movement and the media doesn’t want that. Jones knew that inviting the MSM to do a nationally televised feature on him would result in a hit piece. Why did he go ahead and do it?”

Although I agree with the statement, the deeper implication appears to be that Jones purposely and with malice allowed the MSM to create an opportunity to somehow discredit and ridicule the growing Truth Movement.

After watching the Nightline piece, I don’t see it that way. I thought that for the most part Jones’ ideas and information were presented in a favorable light. It was the bumbling interviewer and the cheap tabloid method used in their attempt to characterize the Truth Movement as “paranoia porn” that was obvious and transparent to anyone with discernment watching their feeble tactics…

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: In fact, this did far more damage to the credibility of ABC, Nightline, and the MSM than it did to the Truth Movement… – SJH
