"Big" technological companies are stifling speech on THEIR platforms which THEY have the RIGHT to do. However, coordiniated attacks on any specific entity should be investigated by the Department of Justice. Alex Jones has nearly gone over the deep end of hyprcrisy as indicated by his continuing rant on this topic during his Aug 17th, 2018 show. Mr. Jones is clearly doing more damage to his reputation than anyone else over this issue. Alex states in one sentence that he isn't calling for action by the US Congress over this issue and acknowledges the rights of private companies, and then rants for 30 minutes over the failure of the US Congress to intervence ("sucking their thumbs"). Wow! Money does INDEED breed hypocrisy. Let me be clear. The Department of Justice should clearly be investigating any Chinese connection to these large companies on the Spynet and their rackeetering practices. A US Congress "sucking its thumbs" is at least harmless.

 

I'll explain Mr. Jones' problem. When the Spynet was initially being commercialized (WWW), he jumped on the bandwagon early and made a fortune on the work of OTHER companies. He wasn't alone. Now, Mr. Jones finds himself saddled with obligations (payroll) and an attack on his former funding mechanism. Like other people, Mr. Jones erred greatly in placing the majority of his eggs in one basket. His basket is shrinking due to his miscalculations and he is now squealing like a stuffed pig. Alex, for someone who pretends to be so far-sighted, you sure blew it. I could see this restriction of the Spynet coming since its inception which is why I slowly weaned myself from it years ago. Find other funding mechanisms such as digital shortwave radio (DRM) which can reach a lot of people with little expense. Admit it. You've blown it and are now saddled with obligations and struggling to pay for those obligations.
