Name a conspiracy theory, any conspiracy theory, and possibilities are that Alex Jones has either created it or helped perpetuate it on the airwaves. The 44-year old right-wing radio host is one of the original 9/11 truthers and a staunch believer of the so-called “deep state."
He is convinced that events such as the Sandy Hook massacre, Oklahoma City bombing, and the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting are false flag operations staged by the American government. Reviled by most in the left and the right, Alex has carved out a niche for himself in appealing to an increasing number of Americans who are distrustful of the government, the mainstream media, academia, and science.
Alex Jones is the owner of InfoWars, one of the oldest and most famous outlets of fake news online, as well as Prisonplanet.com. His daily radio show recorded in Austin, Texas, 'The Alex Jones Show' has a growing audience of millions.
