Ah come on Alex. You should be a wiz at making up stuff out of the blue. Why steal?


InfoWars re-published over 1,000 RT articles within the past three years without the Kremlin-backed outlet’s permission. InfoWars’ plagiarism is evidenced by data from Buzzsumo, a social tracking website that monitors content as it is shared online. Although InfoWars included credits in the articles’ bylines, a representative from RT told Buzzfeed that they did not receive permission to perpetuate such content.

I mean come on. I'm pretty sure he came up with the gay frogs story all by himself right? He went on that anti-gay tirade against representative Peter Schiff right? That was interesting. That got attention. He also always seems to have interesting guests on to fill up his time.... like the guy who broke the news on the child slave colony on Mars which NASA had to come out and deny. He didn't have to lower his standards by stealing now did he?? He always has enough to keep his show afloat, right?

Russia Today is, as many of you know, funded by the Russian Government. Of course RT isn't the only media outlet InfoWars has been ripping articles off. There's a list of others:

This exposes InfoWars to legal action, but it’s not the only outlet that may go after the company. BuzzFeed also found InfoWars contributors allegedly plagiarizing stories from CNN, Sputnik, Breitbart, CNS News, the Blaze, CBC, BBC, Vice, The Guardian, the Washington Post, the New York Times, the New York Post, the Los Angeles Times, BuzzFeed, and others. If InfoWars lacked permission, it may find itself mired in an enormous number of legal proceedings and facing potentially millions of dollars in costs.

I'm usure if RT will take any sort of action. A large chunk of their audience shares the same demographic as those of InfoWars. Still, I'd be majorily annoyed if all my hard work on propaganda ended up being stolen. Not cool Jones not cool.

IW reposts articles from every kind of source. Just like the MSM, except for they keep everything within a specific tunnelvision. One of two sets of tunnelvision which when people color outside of those lines it tends to cause partisans hair to light on fire.

And just because [insert any kind of source here] backs a source doesn't inherently mean that the end result is incorrect.

Although when it comes US Foreign Policy in particular pretty much anything and everything spewed by the US Federal Government, the Republican Party, the Pentagon, the Democrat Party, and their MSM cronies, its usually a pile of steaming turkey dung.

Then there's tons of other types of stories that the .gov, the partisan hacks and the MSM stooges tend not to cover to not rouse rabble, that RT gladly covers. Just like IW.

So I guess that proves AJ is a Russian spy, or something, then??

Good old trustworthy Alex jones, he who knows all and is certainly not certifiable in any way.
I've been known to watch him on occasion, but my honest feeling is that if he wasnt such a money-hungry lunatic
He may actually have something to say. But I'll never know because his lunacy has pushed me away.

Who can forget the Millenium and Alex is doing his show saying Russia had attacked the USA along with other craziness.
I used to enjoy him for entertainment but once people started acting like everything he or his
puppet Joseph Paul Watson said was true I started to worry.
Joe Biggs or whatever he's called is another, saying women shouldn't be in the military and Jones agreeing, most women in the military would rip Jones apart.


Also it's hilarious how he goes on about MAINSTREAM MEDIA and that's essentially his sources.

First of all lets just realize this is something BuzzFeed "found", and we all know how thorough and ground breaking their research is... I rarely every visit the InfoWars website but from what I've seen I'd say this is just InfoWars doing what it always does, using snippets from other articles to prove a point. Most news outlets reference other articles from other outlets, although I'd say InfoWars probably copies a lot more of the original text than most other outlets, but again I cannot really remember because I rarely visit the site. However even if they do copy a questionable amount of the original content why has it not been an issue until now when InfoWars has been at it over a decade, what has caused all these companies to get together now and decide they want to take a hard hit at InfoWars with their combined power? Typical underhanded tactics by fools who think such tactics will work...

Talk about FAKE NEWS, Alex Jones takes the first prize



posted on Nov, 24 2017 @ 09:23 PM

This story is no surprise coming from the folks who have a big axe to grind against Alex Jones, because he speaks out against people who are the true dirt bags of society, like Hillary Clinton, and Ex president'e Obama, and others who take the big prizes in corruption and general dirt baggary. The main stream fake spin news hates Alex Jones because of these things, and it is no surprise their hypocritical rebukes of Alex Jones doing something they have all done for years, (minus the true stories regarding corrupt liberals and their enablers)..

So this entire hit piece is another nothing burger.


I have never seen Alex Jones support any of the filth we have in society today unlike those who "lost" the last election, and for that, he is definitely the good guy. Think of him as a Captain America. HA HA

there are alot more then 1000 RT articles "plagiarized" or reposted here on ats, threads made out of them, same thing isnt it?


alex wont be sued for any of it, they would have to in court prove that they made some effort to demand alex remove their content, which he would, so they havnt, so they have no legal ground to stand on.

im sure they wouldn't bother trying to censor their content from alex for a few reasons, if they disagree with alex's spin trying to censor their content from him would give him more legitimacy and attention, he would tell the world he was being censored.

and if they agree with his spin then he is just another outlet to peddle their content. either way no reason to demand he remove it.

That 60 minutes episode showed how Jones crew preps.

A twenty-something guy literally scans other internet sites and prints out their stories for AJ to talk about. It is a crazy stupid show.

I'm sure CNN has him beat on all those same fronts, including high dollar green screens and other junk fakery to support their main stream status quo rogue CIA/NSA public opinion programs.
