LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


by Micah J. Fleck

Alex Jones has admitted that he pushed a conspiracy theory, and is apologizing for it. Just another day in opposite land.

According to The Hill:

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Friday apologized to the owner of a Washington pizzeria that became the subject of a conspiracy theory about human trafficking last year.

Pizza shop Comet Ping Pong was thrust into the spotlight last year after a gunman allegedly fired a shot inside the restaurant. The suspect said he was investigating the unsubstantiated conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton and her campaign chairman, John Podesta, were operating a child sex trafficking ring out of the restaurant.

The theory, which became known as Pizzagate, had circulated among far-right conspiracy theory websites and social media accounts.

“In our commentary about what had become known as Pizzagate, I made comments about Mr. Alefantis that in hindsight I regret, and for which I apologize to him,” Jones, who runs Infowars, said in a video. James Alefantis is the owner of Comet Ping Pong.

Jones said his website relied on reporters who are no longer employed by Infowars and that video reports about Pizzagate were removed from the website. He also invited Alefantis onto the show to discuss the incident.

Wow.

    I honestly thought pizzagate was for the code word “Pizza” in the conspiracy. Is he even really sorry for the whole conspiracy. It sounds like he is more sorry for someone else and their business being affected by his tall stories.
