Re: Glenn Beck vs Alex Jones: Madman Street Fight
Glenn Beck had made like $75 million dollars off the backs of his audience by being a common street hustler. I believe the guy to be a total phony that has created an entire marketing brand for himself that has made him filthy rich. I don't know what the guy believes in, nor would it surprise me if it was nothing.
He strikes me as the type of guy that would have been a vast left winger if there was more money in that. But he saw the opportunity in striking up fear as soon as Obama was first elected in 2008, so became the "common man on the street" (as he likes to call himself), just keeping that watchful eye on Obama and scaring the shit out of his elderly audience all while writing about 3 books a year, which that same audience eagerly gobbled up.
I don't know how wealthy or not Alex Jones is, but I suspect his is an act as well, and he too knows his audience.
