Remember when Piers Morgan took what ended up to be basically his last stand in America by advocating for gun control in the wake of the-event-that-shall-not-be-named? (That event got my wordpress site canceled!) I recall Piers speaking to Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America. Pratt eats his lunch. (You can see clips of this show here: Shortly thereafter, Morgan had Alex Jones on the show to discuss the same topic…Jones is practically Tom Cruising all over Morgan, drowning the sound facts the Pratt laid out in a sea of “dangerous gun-nut” imagery. Jones tainted Pratt’s message. I would argue that Jones exists just to taint such sound messages, in the vein of “cognitive infiltration” laid out by Obama’s first Information Czar, Cass Sunstein, in this paper on Conspiracy Theories. Whether he meant to be or not, Jones was acting as a Taint Agent.
