Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones: My audience is ‘the teeth’ of Trump’s ‘information warfare’ campaign

Published

on

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones — who believes that both the 9/11 terror attack and the massacre at Sandy Hook were “false flag” operations carried out by the United States government — is again openly boasting about his influence on President Donald Trump.

In an interview with the New York Times, Jones said that the audience who listens to him is “the teeth” in the president’s “information warfare” campaign that’s aimed at publicizing the kinds of “alternative facts” infamously pushed by Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway.

However, this isn’t just empty boasting on Jones’s part.

Trump has regularly embraced a wide range of conspiracy theories — including the belief that vaccines are linked to autism and that President Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery — that were spread by Jones’s Infowars website.

“Two weeks ago, Mr. Trump’s quickly debunked allegation that the news media covered up terrorism by Islamic extremists echoed reports on Infowars, including one headline that blared: ‘Scandal: Mass Media Covers Up Terrorism to Protect Islam,'” the Times notes. “Before that, there was Mr. Trump’s false claim that millions of unauthorized immigrants voted illegally for Hillary Clinton, which Infowars had asserted in November.”

Published

President Donald Trump's bizarre infatuation with Kim Jong-un has reached new heights, as sources tell BuzzFeed News that the president has repeatedly regaled world leaders with the same story about his relationship with the North Korean leader.

Essentially, Trump has repeatedly told leaders about meeting Kim in Singapore in 2018 and explaining to him the origins of "Little Rocket Man," the nickname that the president swiped from the classic Elton John song and then repeatedly used to taunt North Korea's government over its missile tests.

James Murdoch thinks his father and Fox News are destroying America: report

Published

on

In an interview with Jane Meyer published in the New Yorker, James Murdoch, Rupert Murdoch's son, suggested that his father's media empire has destroyed America.

“The connective tissue of our society is being manipulated to make us fight with each other, making us the worst versions of ourselves,” James said. “There are views I really disagree with on Fox,” he added. Plus, he admitted that he goes periods of time when he doesn't speak to his father.

The headline, "No, James Murdoch Doesn't Watch Succession," playfully alludes to the TV show about a right-wing network and the intrigues of the wealthy family behind that media empire.
