Sounds like plausible deniability to me. I wonder how much research he actually does himself.
Oh well, we've been through all this with the Anti_Illuminati stuff - who Alex has pretty much stated he never wants to have on. These days, I just take the good with the bad - but there's definitely some ego involved and an inability to let people speak out clearly on several issues without talking over them ad-nauseum. Jason fares somewhat better at letting callers speak their mind, but even he today skirted around the issue - basically 'damage control'. It sounds like they are scared to say: "OK, I f**ked up" or "I didn't research it properly before" because that will be ammunition that a guy like Chris Matthews or Psychology Today will use to destroy them in the press.
Even then, this strategy is likely to bite them in the ass someday. At least Paul Watson should have the balls to fess up to a mistake - so someone else doesn't have to take a hit for the team.
I tell you one thing - if Alex would take the time to take that slideshow I just posted from the US Air Force - if he showed the audience that, slide for slide, they would get them to wake the hell up - because then they would realize exactly what losing one's privacy entails. They say that images speak a thousand words - they really do.http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=154941.0
At the very least he could include this stuff in his films. AFAIK, he started covering the stuff Anti_Illuminati covers (or only covered in a limited spectrum) up until the release of Endgame - ever since then, it's basically been soft-peddling the basics.
