I actually experienced this personally."[2] The Washingon Post reported in April 2017 that Jones had been diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder.[3]

Enemy Images

Alex Jones makes copious use of both exaggeration and enemy images, including in titles of his video output, such as "Bilderberg 2015: The True Monsters Revealed".[7] Jones website claims that "Every new terrorist attack is part of an elite conspiracy" and that "The liberal Eastern Establishment is behind every conspiracy since the birth of Adam and Eve".[2] The political activist and Holocaust skeptic Ryan Dawson has captured Alex Jones contradictions and the interchangeability of his statements with a video-cut of Jones own broadcasts from 2010 and 2015. [8]

The BBC reports that Jones once heckled a Bilderberg meeting through a megaphone: "We know you are ruthless. We know you are evil. We respect your dark power."[9]
