Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller tries to embarrass Alex Jones, but only embarrass themselves

A ridiculous ambush attempt on Alex Jones by reporters working for Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller at the site of the Bilderberg protest spectacularly backfired as the crowd and the Daily Caller’s own readers lambasted the website’s attempt to characterize the Bilderberg Group as insignificant.
While recording his live radio show, Jones was accosted by Daily Caller reporter Jamie Weinstein, who tried to insinuate that Jones had traveled over a thousand miles with his crew at great expense, with streaming and equipment costs running into the tens of thousands, to try and make money out of “stirring up people’s emotions”.
Asked how much money he had made, Jones adeptly responded, “Well not as much as the bomb makers and globalists in here, the trillions they’ve stolen in taxpayer money.”
Weinstein then began to imply that the Bilderberg Group had no power because Americans were still allowed to exercise their First Amendment rights and protest against it, before being drowned out by the crowd.
Weinstein’s attempt to confront Jones not only ended up looking like a pathetic failure on camera, the Daily Caller’s own readers responded to the clip by savaging Weinstein.
“I just left this site, i thought DC was different,” wrote one.
“You have failed miserably and that’s why the void you left is being filled with people of ethical quality who want the truth such as Alex Jones,” wrote another.
“Sad reporting from the daily caller. Your no different than the mainstream media to me now.” added another.
“I didn’t see him dancing around questions (the suggestion seems to mean he has something to hide) I saw a douche bag reporter trying to make Alex Jones look dumb with his manipulative questions. Be a real journalist and ask real questions. Only a fool calls someone else a fool without looking into the merits of what they are saying,” responded another.
“J-School drop out, Jamie Weinstein, encounters independent journalism for the first time and doesn’t understand it; so he acts like his usual obnoxious self instead,” added another respondent.

In fact the vast majority of respondents on the Daily Caller website savage Weinstein for his “awful” journalism and praise Jones for his work.
Presumably, even though Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson lives in Washington DC, he didn’t have the balls to get in Jones’ face personally and left the job to a couple of his ill-informed minions.
Carlson likes to attack Jones as a “parasite” and hurl vulgar insults in the direction of the radio host, but always from a safe distance of at least 1500 miles.
Carlson has proven himself to be astronomically ignorant of who actually attends Bilderberg meetings. A You Tube clip from 2008 shows the former CNN host blathering on about Bilderberg being comprised of “retired State Department officials,” while dismissing its influence.
One look at the attendee list for this year’s conference paints a very different picture. Heads of the World Bank, Royal Dutch Shell, Google, Microsoft, the NSA, the Washington Post, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, Barclays, Airbus, BP, the White House’s National Security Advisor, Governors, and Senators are all at Bilderberg.
Hardly a bunch of “retired State Department officials,” as Carlson ludicrously claims.
Meanwhile, over on the phony establishment left, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell betrayed a similar combination of supreme sneering arrogance and basic stupidity when he told Luke Rudkowski he was “too lazy” to research Bilderberg and that it didn’t represent a collection of the most influential people on the planet simply because he had never heard of it.
With media talking heads like Carlson and O’Donnell, is it any wonder that the mainstream is losing all credibility while the alternative press is surging in popularity?
