  • I don't understand how anyone could think this is a morally good thing? You're encouraging impulse buys. That's exploitative, but also bad from a capitalist perspective. Capitalism is supposed to give everyone the best product for them, at the best quality for their money. This tries to dodge that by hyping and driving up consumers emotions. How many people will buy things like this and regret it afterwards? or buy an inferior product?

  • Good to see Ashley back again on the channel. Talking about the topic of the video; such advertising doesn't justify the quality of a product. I think that Teleshopping is almost similar to gambling (You win if the product works satisfactorily or you lose if that product doesn't work as per expectations)

    • Stupid. They sell legit name brand stuff, and demoed live for you. I've bought Sonos and JBL Pulse 3 speakers, a washable room rug that I washed in the washing machine at least 8 times a year for the last 2 years. Also, they are honest when they say they have limited quantity or sold put because, I've actually missed orders.

    • This very much feels like an ad to attract a younger audiences. You get to see the product! You're helping small, independent gadget makers! It's live, so you can trust it! So I'd say both of our opinions on shopping channels are right, they're only watched/used by older people, and the channels wants to diversify to a younger audience

    • There isn’t a perfect solution - of course - but it has to come from those who watch and listen first. People have to comment on what’s happening and begin a discussion and then show what they value with their time/money. I don’t think that Ashley was going to far or pushing a narrative BUT I think the point was to present info and let people(like us here in these comments) think about what this type of platforming really means for society and the spread of info.

    • @Michael Pruett Who the heck believes anything Jones says? It's obvious to any sane person that he is comical even if he doesn't think so. What I'm against is to demand that Joe or any other popular figure to never invite anyone because they have different way of viewing things. Now I'm not talking about Jones specifically (I think he is way off on many things) but what I fear is, HOW do we set a line on what's ok and not? WHO sets that line? BASED on what? I would rather have a mostly free land of expression than a restrictive one where the restrictions are impossible to set fairly.

    • @Waves- I just re-read that article and I am not sure what point you are trying to make. Do you disagree with Ashely’s points about Jones? Or do you think the article is poorly written? What issues do you have with it? I would say it points our truths about the JRE episode with Jones and also provides broader context about the men with relation to politics/censorship/conspiracies/celebrity- Over all it seems like a straight forward facts based article.
