Alex Jones Number #1 'Twitter Trend' After CNN Confrontation

Alex Jones Number #1 'Twitter Trend' After CNN Confrontation

January 8, 2013

Alex Jones is the number 1 Twitter trend in the United States (aside from a paid-for term) following his appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight.

Jones is also currently at number 6 in the worldwide Twitter trends.

Jones’ confrontation with Morgan on gun control during last night’s show has stoked viral global media attention.

Jones did a great job.

I'm proud of you Alex. If Alex hadn't acted the way he did, Morgan would have attempted to lecture, shout down and belittle him. Instead he took the reins of the discussion and said what need to be said.


For everybody that thinks this is funny.. Here is a bit of 'truth' for you. AJ is a laughing stock. Anyone that didn't know who he was, will certainly never listen to him again.

Got that through your dense heads? AJ is a joke. AJ sucks. AJ is hurting himself and our movement.

Worth a read - @PiersMorgan on Alex Jones he "was the best ad for gun control you could wish for." http://politi.co/VIAQ7C via @BrianStelter

I NEVER link to Piers Morgan stuff usually, but this is mental television. Check out Alex Jones on his show. Madness:

Fabian K. ‏@fabianwriteonly
Alex Jones was anything but civil against Piers Morgan. How does it expect ppl to hear his point when all he does is yell personal attacks?

John Billar NoWayNRA ‏@azmoderate
Alex Jones is the best argument for better gun safety regulations keeping weapons away from ppl like him who have a poor grasp on reality

I honestly can't stand @piersmorgan but how he kept control against an idiotic almost psychotic Alex jones is beyond me

The best thing about Alex Jones on Piers Morgan: now the whole world knows what an unhinged, deranged weirdo he is.

Why do we need better education? So people can learn to filter out the crazies, like Alex Jones http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2013/01/rant-from-the-m...

Just watched the Alex Jones interview. What an insane psychopath. His contention is that every person in America should be armed.

Click the trend on his name. He has made an ass out of himself and the liberty movement. He is a laughing stock and deserves every second of it.

Thanks in advance for posting this..

So Much for the Naysayers

..and Alex-Bashers that flooded this site late last night.

More concerned about; "HOW they would LOOK" in light of Alex's argumentative "STYLE"....???

Political CORRECTNESS is a mental disease.

...Everything CHANGED !!

oh no....

Ive been here for a long time. AJ can eat a big bag of D*CKS. He is mentally deranged and came off like a lunatic. EFF HIM.

The jury is in. Care to see the ruling?

CNN has already closed their chat on the topic. While the conversation may carry on at other sites, the site where the "debate" was hosted is "the target audience" so lets see what the people had to say, shall we?
It appears to me that AJ did OK. I thought it was a train wreck, but I don't need awakened or sold on the idea that I have rights. If it worked, it worked.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.


most people that read politico and watch CNN are asleep and have no idea what AJ was talking about. I only hope that AJ's rant got some people to look up those things he brought up and maybe will learn something.

all I saw was a whole lot of "MOLON LABE"

It is a carry over from a "topic"

Some of the comments carry that over, if you read what they say they are not all really "Molon Labe" types. However, there is not a lot of AJ bashing, which is what I (and no doubt CNN) expected.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

it's a CNN blog...I'm sure a few people won't like AJ.

it's still about 75-80% pro guns...no matter what the prestitutes say. Just counting the plus/minus votes under every gun related article on yahoo tells the story.

Good news

Maybe the sheep were ready for Alex? The comment fields in the articles I am finding are running his way.

that we are entering a new age of enlightenment. Maybe the gun issue will be the flame that sets it off.
