‘Do you pay in tinfoil?’ Alex Jones posts InfoWars job listing — and gets hilariously trolled
InfoWars, the website run by notorious conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, put out a notice this week that it’s looking for help — and it got instantly trolled by the internet.
The Huffington Post notes that, in its job posting, InfoWars states that it is looking for “talented and committed colleagues to join our elite team of journalists, video editors, radio producers and reporters.”
In the past, Jones and InfoWars have peddled numerous conspiracy theories, including that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were an “inside job” by the United States government, that former President Barack Obama was not an American citizen, that the Sandy Hook massacre was a “false flag” created by the government as a pretext to seize guns, that the Air Force is creating tornadoes in the Midwest, and that Michelle Obama is really a man who kidnapped her two children to hide her true identity.
Given this history, users on Twitter were quick to respond to the job posting with abject mockery — check out some of the top responses below.

Now, when you say committed…

Good plan. Hiring people who have already been committed will save a lot of time.

My current cover letter is a dick pic next to a nuclear weapon (my package is bigger). I’m afraid if this is too crass.
