    Alex Jones, a prominent conspiracy theorist and the host of a popular right-wing radio show, has apologized for helping to spread and promote the hoax known as Pizzagate.

    The admission on Friday by Mr. Jones, the host of “The Alex Jones Show” and the operator of the website Infowars, was striking. In addition to promoting the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, he has contended that the Sept. 11 attacks were inside jobs carried out by the United States government and that the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., was a hoax concocted by those hostile to the Second Amendment.

    The Pizzagate theory, which posited with no evidence that top Democratic officials were involved with a satanic child pornography ring centered around Comet Ping Pong, a pizza restaurant in Washington, D.C., grew in online forums before making its way to more visible venues, including Mr. Jones’s show. And its prominence after the election drew attention to the proliferation of false and misleading news, much of it politically charged, that circulated on platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

    Mr. Jones made the apology to the owner of Comet Ping Pong, James Alefantis, on video, reading from a carefully worded statement that emphasized how widely the theory had spread before he weighed in on it. He said that Infowars had “disassociated” itself from the story in December and had taken down the majority of broadcasts and videos that mentioned it. Mr. Jones also said that two reporters the show had worked with “are no longer with us,” although he did not identify them or discuss the exact nature of their work with Infowars.

    “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,” Mr. Jones said. “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.”

    There was 'evidence' for the pizzagate it was simply so scant and so flimsy that I don't know how anyone could have given it credence. I suspect they did because they wanted it to be true. As for September the 11th there is much in the official narrative that simply is not very convincing.

    For someone who, (and I quote directly other than the deliberate forgetful capitalisation) "will not spare a thought for Alex Jones." sounds like he's actually occupying your thoughts somewhat.

    If I didn't know any better, I would venture a guess that Mr.Jones is very afraid.

    There is no way you read Podesta's emails and/or view the sickening posts on Alefantis' social media, to conclude the evidence is flimsy.

    Actually I did. You yourself produced them. I am sorry but the evidence proffered was the flimsiest of any so called conspiracy theory that I have ever read.

    The Russians must have been behind it. 😵

    See that, we all believe in conspiracies and from here on out, always will.

    That's because you are forced to pick sides now in Washington DC, the most corrupt political system in the world where nothing is ever proved, and no one is ever held accountable. Only conjecture and poo slinging will do. 😵

    Sure: it's perfectly normal behavior for people to be obsessed with pizza, pasta, cheese, walnut sauce, to speak of the same with such bizarre phrasing, and all of their oddities just happen to be the codes used in the pedophile underworld.
    Same for the owner of Comet Pizza: perfectly normal to show children in bondage-themed poses, verbiage which not only echoes the email vernacular, but graphically depicts Satanic sexual rituals.

    Nothing to see here.

    Think on this.
    Jones--- who's group does little to no investigation, but rather regurgitates a spun retelling of what's he's been fed--- insisted that with Pizzagate, there was something there, based on what he had seen.

    Those who read, hear, or see MSM and believe it no matter what their common sense is screaming at them all decried Jones as someone who simply cannot be trusted.
    Same people now: see? Even Jones is backing off this one!

    Interesting how you claim to know so much about codes used in the paedophile underworld.

    they are not making jokes. they are mocking you.

    a joke is really meant to entertain, to be shared among those those that hear it.

    what they are doing is showing you how little they think of you and the persona you created here.
