On Friday, Alex Jones of InfoWars.com issued a wide-ranging and meandering apology to James Alefantis and Comet Ping Pong for the stories he ran regarding James Alefantis’ and Comet Ping Pizza’s connection to Pizzagate and the John Podesta emails.
To my knowledge today, neither Mr. Alefantis, nor his restaurant Comet Ping Pong, were involved in any human trafficking, as was part of the theories about Pizzagate that were being written about in many media outlets and which we commented upon. We apologize to the extent our commentaries could be construed as negative statements about Mr. Alefantis or Comet Ping Pong, and we hope that anyone else involved in commenting on Pizzagate will do the same thing.
Mr. Jones even invited Mr. Alefantis on the show.
This is a far cry from the weeping Alex Jones who decried pedophilia and sex slavery and squarely implicated John Podesta and Alefantis in those activities. Moreover, Alex Jones’ many law enforcement informants often “substantiated” his reports and investigation.
What a disappointment Alex Jones has become.
Question: Was the story/information about Podesta and Alefantis true or not?
If not, why wasn’t this information better vetted before weeping on the air and whipping his viewers into a frenzy? If true, then why retract it? If you’ve received evidence that has cleared them, then why not share it with your viewers?
Mr. Jones you’ve become part of the fake news that you rail against. You have no excuse to engage in bad reporting. If your information isn’t credible–don’t put it our there or label it as unsubstantiated. Americans don’t need new sources that can’t be trusted or who spin an agenda.
You, Mr. Jones, owe your viewers an apology far greater than the one you gave to Alefantis.
