Alex Jones claimed that Donald Trump hurt him by boasting about and supporting the COVID vaccines.
The 1/6 Committee has subpoenaed two of Trump's allies in Roger Stone and Alex Jones, who have both bragged about coordinating with Trump on the coup.
A judge ruled that Alex Jones is liable for damages after he spread conspiracies about the Sandy Hook shooting being a hoax.
Infowars host Alex Jones, who often promoted conspiracy theories about the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting, was found liable for damages, according to just-released court documents. Jones had falsely claimed that the shooting, which claimed the lives of 28 people, most of them children, was a “giant hoax.”
Joe Rogan happily tells his viewers that he is not a Republican or a Democrat. His favored candidate during the run-up to the 2020 election was Bernie Sanders.
At the same time, the popular host has platformed many alt-right figures. This includes multiple appearances from Alex Jones. And this week, Rogan defended both Jones and Tucker Carlson.
Alex Jones may have been largely deplatformed at this point, but that hasn’t stopped him from continuing to make wild claims. He recently told listeners that he was in regular contract with the White House in the run-up to the 1/6 insurrection.
Most political administrations would have considered Alex Jones to be a joke. The Trump administration, though, desperately need the votes of his supporters. So they played ball.
Trump made a memorable appearance on Jones’ show InfoWars back in December of 2015. At the time, the former president was seeking the Republican nomination. And in one sense, the two men legitimized one another.
It has only taken a few months for Republicans to try and gaslight Americans about the January 6th insurrection. Last week, congressmen like Paul Gosar and Andrew Clyde painted the rioters as patriots.
The United States is finally starting to beat back the COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly 60% of Americans have received at least one vaccination shot and businesses across the country are starting to reopen.
In the way of that success is anti-vaxxers and the right-wing media members that urge them one. Tucker Carlson has certainly done his part to make his viewers falsely question the safety of vaccines.
When news broke that Matt Gaetz was being investigated for sex trafficking, the Florida lawmaker went on the attack. That night, he appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show to give his side of the story.
Donald Trump has been beneficial to Alex Jones’ career. Not only did the former president provide Jones with countless story ideas, he even appeared on InfoWars when he was seeking the Republican nomination.
Facebook banned several high profile alt right supporters of Trump from Facebook and Instagram for hate speech violations.
The website Vimeo has pulled content from Infowars and its founder Alex Jones from its site for violating the platform’s video content standards. A spokesperson for the video hosting service told Business Insider on Sunday that the Infowars videos “violated our Terms of Service prohibitions on discriminatory and hateful content.” Vimeo is a video-sharing website in which users can upload, share and view videos.
Conspiracy theories have always existed, but in recent years they have been getting more numerous and more troublesome. There is a new tendency of conspiracy theorists to target regular people as well as public figures such as politicians and celebrities. This can raise havoc in these people’s lives, so they are fighting back by filing lawsuits. If they can prove actual damages they have suffered there is a good chance this new class of plaintiffs will win these suits, which may change the national dialogue for the better.
This is the kind of unhinged and crackpot rhetoric that is common on Info Wars, but it has no place in American government.
The NBC station that serves the town where the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre took place will not be airing Megyn Kelly's interview with Sandy Hook conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Sunday.
Trump worshiper Alex Jones made his feelings about Schiff more than plain when he accused Schiff of "sucking globalist d---"
The German magazine noted for its investigative journalism outed "America's biggest conspiracy theorist" and "epitome of fake news" Alex Jones as Trump's propagandist, warning of the dangers of his treatment of Trump as some kind of "Hitler-like Führer".
So far at CPAC we have seen nonstop attacks on "globalists" and "globalism" - and this from a president who makes money from all over the globe. On the whole, this makes as much sense as liberals being cast as the elites when it's Trump who uses a golden toilet as his throne.
Alex Jones claims he and Trump are both reading from the 'sheet music of reality.' Early indications are the mainstream media seems to agree
