    "I'm Alex Jones and I realize I could be held liable for the events that happened at this particular pizza shop due to spreading false information and want to attempt to cover my ass and wanted to apologize for it, disingenuously of course."

    That and the fact he is now part of Donald Trumps White House's credentialed media outlets.

    he's either in charge of propaganda, or based on his credentials, he's in charge of making sandwiches

    of course he used all white bread

    My mistake, he was just credentialed as a correspondent.

    Can we just admit that InfoWars and Breitbart being credentialed as any news organization that is held to some sort of journalistic integrity is insane?

    I think you should have to do at least some straight journalism to be considered for credentialing. The fact that both of those orgs are basically 100% op-ed should keep basically anyone from taking them seriously.

    The fact that Alex Jones has peddled conspiracy theories that have been picked up and defended by posters here speaks to the man's influence.

    sometimes it's fun to believe conspiracies. They add more depth and another dimension to reality. Many are much more interesting than reality.

    For people who don't drink or take drugs they are a nice little escape.
