Ventura’s Global Warming episode of “Conspiracy Theory” gets immediate recognition on Prison Planet when the 9/11 episode wasn’t mentioned at all
At least not by any Alex Jones-funded Prison Planet writer. It was mentioned 4 days later on the site; a copy-and-paste, matter-of-fact story from another site. Ventura’s global warming episode…..instant mention on Prison Planet by their own writers and showcased for all to see

Seems I’m not the only one who smells something fishy with the fact that Alex Jones’ websites Prison Planet and Infowars have immediately mentioned the global warming episode of Jesse Ventura’s TruTv hit show “Conspiracy Theory” when they took roughly 4 days to mention the 9/11 episode. Even though they did mention the 9/11 episode on December 13 [the show aired Dec 9], it was not a spotlight feature article written by any of the regular Prison Planet writers [Paul and Steve Watson, Kurt Nimmo].
Instead, the story, “Ventura’s ‘Conspiracy Theory’ show probes 9/11 mysteries”, was a copy-and-paste story from the website Raw Story, whose writer, Stephen C. Webster, generically described the episode in matter-of-fact, overview form, rather than in partisan, critique form we usually get from Kurt Nimmo and the Watson brothers at PP.
Why didn’t Prison Planet writers run a story on the 9/11 episode? True, just because Ventura does a show about conspiracy theories, doesn’t necessarily mean that Prison Planet has to do a story on every episode Ventura makes. But, then again, Prison Planet has never failed to deliver a story the very next day of any program or mention of 9/11 by anyone, whether it was supporting the alternate view or a hit piece. But, they failed [or should I say "were instructed not to"] this time. Why?
In my story of Ventura’s 9/11 episode last week, I mentioned the possible reasons why PP may not have ran an article about it:
“Maybe it was because Alex Jones was not mentioned or even interviewed for that episode.
Alex Jones considers himself the father of the 9/11 truth movement and is even friends with Ventura, yet Jones is not in the episode at all. Maybe since Jones was excluded from the episode, he is retaliating by not mentioning the episode on Prison Planet. I have no proof of this, but I do know that whenever 9/11 is mentioned on any TV program, it hits Prison Planet the very next day. Ventura’s hour-long episode exposing the truth of 9/11 is officially the most airtime any prime time show has given the alternate views of 9/11 to date, and Prison Planet ignores this?? That’s hardly a coincidence.
Perhaps another reason why the episode was not mentioned could be that Prison Planet had many criticisms of the show as well. Since Alex Jones and Ventura are chumsy pals, Jones may have issued the decree from on high to the Watson boys [Steve and Paul, the main Prison Planet writers] to not be openly critical of the episode.”
I hardly think it’s a coincidence that for at least the past month or so now, Prison Planet has bombarded their site with stories about climategate and the global warming fraud. Every once in a while a non-global warming story manages to squeeze its way onto Prison Planet and Infowars. Even at the peak of the 9/11 stories, it never got anywhere close to the number of stories PP is running on global warming.
Am I saying that I’m a defender of the global warming fraud? Of course not. I know it’s a big hoax like most people do. Am I saying that Alex Jones should not cover climategate and not treat these stories as important? No. That’s not what I am saying at all. But, should Prison Planet permeate 99% of their site with global warming stories as if it held more importance than if nuclear bombs were detonated in every major city in the United States simultaneously?
I thought I was the only one who felt this way until I read comments under a story Prison Planet posted today titled, “Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura: Global Warming”.
Here are just a few of those comments:

So Alex, you saw fit to put THIS episode of Venturas show on the top front page but you almost completely ignored his 9/11 episode? WTF? You are OBSESSED with climategate and obsessed with siphoning off Beck/Lmbuagh and other MSM hacks audiences. This site is REALLY going downhill. You should be ashamed of yourself AJ, this is really getting pathetic. Though I guess your internet hits have gone through the roof since you starting ignoring 9/11 truth(basically) and the wars(basically) in favor of obsessing over climategate and trying to hijack partisan winger MSM viewers.

I’m not sure my point of view is quite as strong as your’s, but it does seem to be getting a bit redundant. Jesse’s show was good, but the part that irratated me was how he repeatedly said Al Gore was his friend, yet didn’t interview him? Would not this have been the key person to interview? Maurice Strong is important, but the damn sock puppet selling his own book is what the public needs to see answering tought questions.
I was also surprised Ventura believed in “climate change” at the beginning of the show. I guess it just shows that the propaganda is heavy. Hopefully he has changed his mind and will quit refering to Gore as his friend. With friends like that, who needs enemies.

The Ventura 911 Conspiracy Theory show WAS posted on the front page here last week. I know because that was where I was able to watch the program from. Which was rather good btw despite Ventura’s strong promotion of the fellow who alleged the recovery of the black boxes. I think the black boxes are a honey pot trap rather like the missile hit the Pentagon theory because the feds could produce the boxes & videotape at any time if it could be used to bolster their version.

Again, it was posted near the bottom, it was not given the featured story status. That is an important distinction. I agree about the black box thing, it could be very well be a honey pot, but I somehow doubt this is why AJ did not cover it much and gave it such small play.

The 9/11 show was pretty much ignored here, I was suprised about it myself. I tuned in the next day to hear what Alex thought of it and he didn’t even mention it, all climategate/copenhagen stuff.

Thank you. It is suspect to me, almost like hes afraid 9/11 truth will upset his newfound Beck/Limbaugh listening audience. And it would. So maybe hes afraid of losing them? I don’t know but its bullshit either way.
What I find interesting is that the comments left under the story [above] were flooded with negative comments [like the ones posted], but the story Watson wrote today hides the fact that the story is about the Ventura episode by not mentioning his name or that it was even about global warming in the title, “Exclusive: Lead Author Admits Deleting Inconvenient Opinions From IPCC Report” The article has not-a-one negative comment on it and has far fewer comments [as of this writing, 22], then the aforementioned story “Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura: Global Warming” [which, as of this writing, has 104].
Now, I do realize that the latter story was posted six hours before the Watson story, but keep in mind, the Watson story is also showcased as a headline story, whereas the earlier story was inserted into the multimedia section, where fewer people frequent.
What does this all mean really?
That’s the mystery. Who knows why Prison Planet wants to keep Ventura’s 9/11 episode hush-hush, but broadcasts the global warming show from the highest mountains? I’m sticking with the reasons I mentioned above [from my story last week].
I will admit. I thought Ventura’s episode on global warming was much better than the 9/11 episode, but not for the reasons that I believe Jones is being silent about Ventura’s 9/11 episode. I still had issues with Ventura’s global warming episode, like why Ventura still praised Al Gore at the end of the episode when he said, “Al Gore, you’ve been a real inspiration, but a lot of other people who preach the global warming gospel, are not out to save the world. They’re out to run it”, when he had just finished talking to several people who told him that Gore was a huge profiteer from global warming.
Why didn’t Ventura talk to Al Gore on camera since they’re friends??
Why did Ventura talk to Noel Sheppard, a guy who thinks 9/11 truthers [whom Ventura himself is] are nuts? Better question is: why did Sheppard talk to Ventura?
