Is it still too early to call Alex Jones an inflammatory idiot?

Someone defended Mr. Jones by saying he goes into detail and talks about stuff the MSM won't. If this is true, then why do I have the following complaints?
1. Half of the article talks about the DHS. Why is this relevant? It isn't, it is meant to incite anger.
2. Is this a standing order? If not, when was the last order? If all orders are this huge, then it isn't really newsworthy, is it?
3. Is this the first time an order has been made? If so, why not call the article "Why does National Weather Service need armed guards?"
4. I have heard this discussed on the radio on numerous programs.
5. How many agents are in these departments?
6. MSNBC answers the questions raised by infowars, quite simply, and probably only required a phone call.
i. Agents use 590 rounds/year, mostly for training
ii. Hollow points are used in the field because they don't go through walls, thus protecting innocent bystanders.

(I sure seem to have a lot of questions from someone who is thorough...)

So, assuming this is true, the NWS's purchase of 46,000 rounds would go to 77 agents, less than two per state. But the way infowars' artice was written, you'd think we were ready for war with the NWS.

Bad info and bad writing show bad character.

Its NEVER too early to call Alex Jones an inflammatory idiot, just like how its NEVER too early to call everyone who follows infowars a crazy conspiracy theorist
