Fallout from a lawsuit, Jones's lawyers suggest he's a performance artist, and playing a character.
This is not really a surprise. But, unfortunately, this is the man that our President has publically lauded for his journalism, and "important work" and whose conspiracy laden scripts get turned into defense of questionable policy positions.
So, he's playing a character. Now, instead of the president loving the reporting of a genuine crackpot, the president is just taking cues from a guy who isn't a crackpot, but plays one on TV.
I'm not sure that's better.
Thoughts on the ramifications? if any? Have I missed something that makes this not even more disturbing than when we could assume he was genuine?
