It took didn’t take long for the corporate media gossip machine to crank out hit pieces aimed at Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag Pratt after they appeared on the Alex Jones Show.
|Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag Pratt are not strangers to the gossip media.|
“In a Monday appearance on Alex Jones’ radio show, Infowars, the couple revealed they feel 9/11 was an ‘inside job,’ say the idea that global warming exists is ‘mind boggling’ and lament the ‘end of humanity,’” writes the website for Us Magazine , the celebrity gossip weekly founded by The New York Times Company.
The Pratts told Jones — who is known for his conspiracy theories of a “New World Order” (or, as he feels, code for “totalitarian world government”) — they found out about him after a music producer gave them a copy of Jones’ movie, The Obama Deception.
“I really do feel like we took the blue pill or whatever from The Matrix,” Spencer says.
The website includes a link to an Infowars podcast of the broadcast.
Us Magazine picked up the story from Jezebel , an appropriately named blog covering “celebrity, sex, fashion for women.”
Sadie, writing for the lurid website, characterized Alex Jones as a “paleo-wingnut.” According to Ms. Sadie, “Alex Jones is a Texas-based nut-job with a penchant for conspiracy theories, references to ‘Big Brother’ and, obviously, a history of appearances in the worst Richard Linklater movies. In 2007 he made a film called Loose Change dealing with “the New World Order,” aka ‘totalitarian world government.’ (The New World Order seems to involve Obama deception, the suppression of American sovereignty and a lot of conspiracies.)”
“Spiedi” and her husband, according to Jezebel, are “Obama-big deep thinkers” who are “prepared to address the secret population decline.” In fact, as Alex has repeatedly pointed out on his show and in his documentaries, engineered “population decline,” more accurately defined as eugenics, is anything but a secret.
“Jones says he plans to have the couple back on his show in the coming days, presumably to continue their education,” the Jezebel scribe sarcastically continues. “We hope so, because if this is part of Spencer’s plan for world domination, it’s seriously mysterious.”
The imaginatively titled website The Hollywood Gossip  also picked up the story. “The plastic pair hit up a conservative radio show, hosted by Alex Jones, to speak about their ‘awakening’ towards something called ‘the New World Order,’” writes Free Britney (another imaginative name). “Are these two possibly for real, or is this just another attempt by The Hills’ gruesome twosome to generate more media attention in any way possible?”
As the interview revealed, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag Pratt are for real and determined to use their celebrity to send the message far and wide. Us Magazine, Jezebel, and The Hollywood Gossip may think they are merely engaging in routine trashing of the “plastic pair,” but they are helping get the message out, too.
