The real point they miss out is that Jack is crazy.
That's not a euphemism. Any man who makes serious references to "cranial menus" and honestly believes that Doug Lowenstein is worse than Saddam and Bill Gates is partially responsible for the Malvo killings is just insane.
Sure, he can have a phone conversation without going off the deep end. That's doesn't make him a legitimate voice in this debate. I used to work at a crisis center and can tell you that sometimes it takes schizophrenics a few hours before they start mentioning the angels in their radio.
Jack's words speak for himself. He is a total nutjob that the media trots out to make total nutjob statements because they're entertaining and good for ratings. That's pretty much the sum of his value to society.
