Glenn Beck Calls Alex Jones a ‘Crazy Person’

On Monday night, Dallas-bred, Austin-based Alex Jones appeared on Piers Morgan’s CNN show, and left as the butt of nearly every joke the next morning. On Tuesday, Glenn Beck took to his own channel to dispute the idea that Jones is the right person to represent the conservative viewpoint on guns:

Piers Morgan is trying to have gun control. He is trying to make everybody who has guns and who believes in the Second Amendment to be a deterrent to an out-of-control government look like a madman. So now he immediately books the madman and makes him look like a conservative. He’s not a conservative.

Both of them are using the First Amendment here as a means to their own end: Jones to push his websites, Beck to push his own, relaunched The Blaze. But we’re all stuck in the crossfire.
