  7. Chris Hedges is always sane and focused, but Alex Jones is a histrionic spokesperson for the paranoia industry. Not exactly an impartial critic, regrettably, his cynical tabloid hyperbole generates doubt rather than elevate truth and persuade the unconvinced of the urgent need for radical reform. It is high time to abandon such American revivalist tactics, and move beyond the tub-thumping bible tent mentality that feeds the crowd hysteric pyrotechnics the emotive election circus thrives upon. Hopefully Jones will actually read the book or at least look at the pictures! The intellectually vacuous media resounds with meaningless cosmetic pronouncements and vulgarity. The fault lies with the academic community whose deafening silence is a scandalous disgrace, and demonstrates how effectively corporate endowment and tenure can procure feeble complicity in massive abundance. We need a thousand Chris Hedges robustly presenting individual critical perspectives. The USA is deaf and blind to its own iniquity.
