Alex JonesFrom my June 30, 2012 article, Live Free or Die Radio with Lee Rogers is the most dangerous talk show in the alternative media, I pointed out that Alex Thomas of the Intel Hub was scheduled to be a guest on Lee Rogers’ show, only for him to cancel at the last minute.

I speculated that he likely cancelled due to finding out that Rogers was a strong critic of Alex Jones, and that going on the show would risk putting himself on Jones’ blacklist.

On the July 13, 2012 episode of Live Free or Die Radio, Lee Rogers revealed (at 1:56:45) that his subsequent attempts to even elicit a response from Alex Thomas had failed, and I am now 100% confident that my guess was correct, that he cancelled due to fearing Alex Jones’ blacklist.

Whether those who avoid his blacklist because they fear losing listeners, readers, contacts and money, their primary reasons are best known to those individuals themselves.

When I was co-hosting Right to Redress with Steve Allen and Jason Erb on Restore the Republic Radio in 2009, several of us wanted to start a show called Alex Jones Revisited, in response to questions we and others had about Alex Jones based on his own call for his listeners to research for themselves about the claims he makes.

In response, and without any notification to me, owner of Restore the Republic, Gary Franchi, held a conference call and acted like a spoiled baby and informed the owner of the network that despite Restore the Republic Radio having no official connection with Restore the Republic, he planned on cutting all ties and said we had to choose a different name for the network if we went through with our plan for the new show. To the credit of the network’s owner, and as an example for all network owners, he didn’t back down.

It’s revealing that on the May 31, 2012 episode of Live Free or Die Radio, Lee Rogers mentioned that he  had raised questions several years ago about Alex Jones to Gary Franchi, only to notice that a few months later, Franchi was a guest on Jones’ program.

Apparently Franchi didn’t have the same concerns, but his behaviour which I had personally witnessed, showed me that not only did he lack discernment, but that it wasn’t really all about the truth and saving the country like he and so many other so-called patriots claim to be in the movement for.

For the benefit of everyone, I am reposting the description that appeared on the Daily Paul on April 29, 2009, to determine for yourself if the show warranted Franchi’s actions.

Are you tired of Alex Jones and this giver of no hope attitude?

Do you believe much of the information he reports on he is wrong or misinformed about?

Do you want actual solutions of what we can do as average american citizens to these problems he claims we face?

We are introducing Alex Jones Revisited a new radio show that will bring fact NOT fiction back to reality as well as provide real solutions of what you can do to take action and protect yourself.

We will fact check the reports from Alex Jones and give you the truth on what he is wrong about and also what he is right about!

Mike Chambers LiveAfter nearly four years on the Oracle Broadcasting Network, Mike Chambers Live is indefinitely on hiatus since June 20, 2012.

Rob Chowdah of the Rob and Freeland Show gave his take on Mike’s decision on the July 2 episode of his show (starting at 8:40).

As Rob mentioned, Mike had a challenging timeslot, in doing four hours of radio a day, head-to-head with Alex Jones. I once did two hours of radio, from 8 to 10 AM Eastern, for the first half of 2009, on Right to Redress with Steve Allen and Jason Erb, and that became enough of a grind as a part-time, unpaid venture.

All the best to Mike and his family, and I hope to hear him back on the radio again soon.

On June 4, I had the opportunity to call into Mike’s show about the infiltration of Ron Paul’s campaign.
