I haven’t paid Russell Brand much attention since his brief Hollywood stint. Turns out that he’s discovered he could make lots of money on the far right conspiracy crowd. This is an interesting video from Media Matters’ Abbie Richards, detailing the grift economy network. Brand almost certainly doesn’t believe any of the claims he makes, but he’s making a lot more money from the Alex Jones crowd than he did as a self-help guru type. In other words: follow the money.
