Kevin BarrettI recently came across this interview of Nolan Higdon of Project Censored on his critique of Alex Jones on the Kevin Barrett Show on October 28, 2013.

It is ironic that Barrett rushes to Alex Jones’ defense so much, given that a strong inference can be drawn that Jones was the reason for Barrett and Jim Fetzer getting the boot from GCN after Fetzer started talking about no planes hitting the WTC buildings on 9/11, and Barrett having previously blasted Jones in his article, Is Alex Jones a Complete Idiot? on March 11, 2013.

It is also ironic that the show page for the interview has the trailer for the 9/11 thriller Operation Terror, about the underreported events of 9/11, which was blocked by one or more individuals within Alex Jones’ operation, with them not even accepting advertising money.

Here is my summary of the interview:

4m – Barrett said if you add all things up about Alex Jones, it looks mostly good
6m – Higdon doesn’t say 9/11 was an inside job
8m – Barrett takes him to task for finding it odd that Jones is getting onto big shows like Hannity, etc., saying why not
9m – Jones’ bogus predictions that poison the well
10m – Barrett says almost all his reporting on 9/11 has been good
11m – Barrett brings up Michael Ruppert allegedly making more incorrect predictions
12m – Barrett saying Jones is doing a lot of good by waking up people
18m – Barrett taking exception with claim that Alex Jones is turning a lot of people off, saying we should see numbers
20m – Barrett justifying Jones’ repeated false flag predictions, saying it could’ve prevented some, and it’s drawing people’s attention to the tactic
23m – Higdon rightly asks, why doesn’t Jones do something about things — besides bull horning
25m – Higdon says people tend to ignore things because of sensationalist statements by Jones
30m – Barrett says Jonathan Kay is either a Mossad agent or a sayanim (unpaid agent)
36m – Barrett referred to “idiots who bash Alex Jones” for not reporting on the accurate things he says
37m – Barrett kicked off 911blogger for one interview with someone who questioned the Moon landings
41m – Barrett said we can be fairly sure Chavez was taken out with a cancer weapon
42m – Barrett said it’s legitimate that Alex Jones is afraid to criticize the Israeli influence in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
– Higdon said he didn’t have a strong opinion of any of Jones’ bias, saying it goes both ways with people having strong criticisms of him on that issue
44m – Barrett said he doesn’t think project censored is brave enough to cover James Petras on the Israeli-Palestinian issue
46m – Higdon said James Tracy ignored most of his sources
49m – Barrett said it was shocking that the article would only focus on negative aspect of Jones when the mainstream media was covering up so many important stories
52m – Barrett said for most of the past 12 years, the top stories on Project Censored aren’t the ones he would’ve chosen
54m – Barrett asked what if someone wrote an negative article about Project Censored
55m – Barrett said he thinks Alex Jones does a good job at what he does, and says he shares some concerns about what he does. Said if Jones wasn’t there, no one else would be reaching a mass audience.
