    Although I have seen most of seasons 1 and 2 and found them to be both excellent and objective, season 3 I have seen an episode that disturbingly appears to turn into a "hit piece" against David Icke at the end and in which Jesse Ventura behaves in an juvenile and unprofessional manner. The episode is fine until the last 10 minutes where we see Jesse Ventura speak to Alex Jones and then "interview" David Icke about the reptillian conspiracy theory. Alex Jones and David Icke are two of the most prominent conspiracy researchers in the world and both of them have claimed that what they said during the filming of the show has been edited to be taken completely out of context and censor some of what was said. I just finished watching the episode and the part where Alex Jones is speaking does look very badly edited and at times it does not look like the movement of his mouth matches the words that he is saying. Jesse Ventura appeared to be very disrespectful and at one point acted like a juvenile kid near the end of the interview saying to the effect that he's glad pro wrestling (during his earlier career) prepared him to go into the ring with David Icke and then laughing like a schoolboy who had just made an immature tease at someone. I'm sorry Jesse Ventura, but that is not the way to conduct a professional, objective interview. David Icke is one of the most intelligent speakers I have seen speak and his books are excellent (I personally own one of his DVDs and one of his books and they are very high quality). I'm not saying you have to agree with David Icke's reptillian theory but if you were unable to have an intelligent conversation with him then it is your fault not his. At one point David Icke told you the answer for the question you asked was answered in detail in his latest 700 page book and you responded you did not have time to read a 700 page book. You also met with him an hour before one of the rare occasions when he was doing a 9 hour presentation on the same subject and he invited you to come watch and you said you didn't have time to spend 9 hours to get your question answered. What kind of lame excuse for a researcher are you if you can't spend 9 hours to listen to a presentation or to read a 700 page book on what you are researching at the time? Seriously, attempting to undermine one of the two most popular conspiracy researchers without even taking the time to learn anything about him (ie: watch his lecture, read one of his books) and then conducting the interview as a hit piece does not belong on a show dedicated to objective investigations on conspiracies. The manner in which you (or possibly your editors or producers) took everything Alex Jones said out of context and censored half of what David Icke said and also the way you acted in some of the David Icke interview footage makes you look like and idiot and I've lost a lot of respect for you as a result.
