    I’m not saying on the final word on this, but the problem with Alex Jones is he takes way too much initiative beyond free speech. He is a huge PR problem for whatever platform he’s on. 

    I love listening to the guy, but I quit for quite a while after I found out that he had a guy on his payroll badgering those Sandy Hook families. Just awful. 

    It’s also a big problem that so many people take him seriously. There is never anything on that show with any redeeming value anymore. He’s simply entertaining because he’s really good at making stuff up.

    Zuckerberg’s ballot harvesting scheme was both illegal and un-American.

    Joel Pollak of Breitbart news has a great book about this topic and the related as well. I’m pretty sure all of the good interviews with him about it are behind paywalls.

    I am a huge fan of everybody mentioned, but Ron Coleman is really interesting. I don’t know a lot about Jon B. Wells but I really like his show on Saturday night.

    Thanks for this, Dave and Jeff.

    I joined Clouthub. Follow me there @creatingyourlife. I’ll be creating new videos in January on Blind Spots, How the Mind Works, how language creates perception, and a ton more stuff. Looking forward to a true civic-minded platform!

    We had Joel on earlier this Fall. He had just released another book. Man’s a writer!

    I’m not going to go to the trouble, but the girl in the red dress meme.

    “Funny you should mention Smokey Robinson”

    Facebook’s tennis racket advertisement algorithm.

    I guess it all boils down to the determination between happenstance, coincidence, and enemy action.

    @michaelpleahy is all over the Zuckerberg ballot harvesting scheme. I’ve heard two interviews on Breitbart SiriusXM.

    It sounds like all of this is going to get massively litigated pretty soon because too much of it was actually illegal. Zuckerberg totally did an end run around election law in way too many areas to get away with it. He overplayed his hand.
