English: Alex Jones outside Bilderberg meeting...Alex Jones, who has been used to getting what he wants when it comes to the GCN network, has lost his lock on the GCN time slots while his show airs, with the Common Sense Club now taking up the third of four GCN channels during the three hours that his show runs, according to the latest schedule as of August 3, 2012.

This is significant in that some big name fellow GCN hosts who ran afoul of Alex Jones paid the price in terms of losing their show (Jeff Rense and Michael Rivero) and that any change to his former GCN hegemony is noteworthy.

While other hosts have to pay in the neighbourhood of $2000 or more a month for one hour a day, five days a week of airtime, Jones once revealed that Ted Anderson was sending him a cheque for around the same amount, each month.

While I know of two hosts who eventually didn’t have to pay anything to stay on the air, Jones is the exception, in actually being paid money. George Whitehurst-Berry’s show reached up to the second-highest position among online listeners of all shows on the network, getting up to at least 90% of Alex Jones’ live online GCN listenership at one point, in the hour before Jones’ show, only to be suspiciously cancelled in April 2012 after four and a half years.

This latest development lends more confirmation to my contention that the cancellation of George Whitehurst-Berry’s show was not primarily a business decision, if at all, since the previously unassailable precious three hours of time is more valuable than the hour before them in which Berry’s show ran.
