And predictably, it's dismissed by infowhores as a hit piece and ridiculed throughout. Which is what they do to anything that isn't the the 100% pure evidence-free propaganda served up daily on the radio and the dozens of AJ-controlled websites that all post the same crap. Even if Nightline did let Alex spout his garbage unchecked, they'd still call it a hit piece if they didn't let him hawk DVDs, premium site access, gold, water filters and Ron Paul.
I LOL'd, Alex Jones is so over the top that he simply cannot be parodied. The reporter did a great job with the CNN example, Jones does shit like that ALL THE TIME; literally taking from some mundane source a joke, or an obvious exaggeration, or even a clumsy sentence from its context and turns it into "I'VE FOUND THE ILLUMINATI'S SECRET PLANS FOR WATER POISONING...ON THE CNN EDITORIAL PAGE!"

Off topic but here is the latest jem from the Onion about a Truther Memorial:http://www.theonion.com/articles/construction-complete-on-911-truther-memorial,18034/
A moment of honesty for Jones: "Everybody has an agenda. Including myself."His agenda is snake oil sales, and judging from his viewer numbers, he's doing a reasonably good job.
Nightline is to be commended for giving a good view into what the 9-11 conspiracy loons are really like. I loved them nailing Jones with the totally out of context sentence attributed to CNN, which was a great example of how he will take any snippet of even a spoof and feed it to Kool Aide drinking followers as proof.And in the case of 911, this is exactly what guys like Jones and Dylan Avery have done. They take any shred of anything that supports their conspiracy theories, while at the same time dismissing mountains of hard evidence that completely refutes it. It's like Johnny Cochran turning OJ's murder trial away from OJ's Bruno Magli footprints in blood at the crime scene and making it about a cop using the N word. And the results are equally repugnant.
