Let People Hear Jones' Truth

RECEIVED Fri., Aug. 13, 2004

Dear Editor,
   I am responding to an article in your newspaper that portrayed Alex Jones, talk-show host, patriot, in a very negative manner ["Austin@Large," News, Aug. 6]. I am very thankful for the hard work Alex Jones does hourly to inform us on the documents, bills, laws, and proposals he takes his time to inform us on while our government expands its power over us and squelches our God given rights in our great USA.
   I understand that another communication form, access TV, is being removed in Austin, Texas, to make way for a music channel, replacing a valuable information resource for people seeking the truth, as myself. Mr. Jones sought out the original documents that dictated policy on the access station's change in format, and then he was treated in a very noncomplimentary manner by your newspaper when he did so. Since you are a newspaper and you are also charged in your work to have your reporters seek the truth to bring information and educate the public, I am quite surprised you would be encouraging a blackout on airtime for those researching facts and documents informing the public. Alex's dedication to seeking the truth in regard to Waco, homeland security, the PATRIOT Act, and UNESCO rejoined under President George W. Bush that expanded UNESCO policies into our education system and all policies in our government, has only been a helpful resource for us. Alex has provided information enabling the public to be better informed in the decisions they make in regard to their own future.
   Our government leaders not reading bills, including President Bush, when he revealed at an Ohio high school that he did not even read No Child Left Behind legislation before signing it into law, is not a healthy direction for us. Keep Alex and others doing their homework on your access TV station. Let the people hear the truth!
