I don't it see it that way at all...

...these "journalists" do indeed alert people to the existence of the powers that be, and give them certain useful information, but they also lead them down endless rabbit holes. Here's my conspiracy theory: many of the alternative media catering to conspiracy theorists is cointelpro designed to confuse people with a barrage of conflicting information, causing them to totally lose their bearings, become dependent on some guru for their world-view, and get distracted from ever actually doing something about the problem. And those who aren't cointelpro are just snake-oil salesmen. Feeding the paranoia becomes an end in itself, and it turns on anyone who tries to do something. Remember how Alex Jones turned on Ron and Rand and accused them of selling out earlier this year, and then the blogosphere and the DP lit up with comments repeating the same memes? They're an unwholesome influence. They offer no solutions and no final answers, all they do is feed an addiction to controversy and mystery - not at all unlike the tabloids.
