Alex Jones' Apology for #PizzaGate Comments

#1
Alex Jones did not admit or say the #PizzaGate scandal was false or untrue.

In a carefully worded legal statement he apologized for "making comments that were based on insufficient evidence".

Anyone who thinks there are no burning embers under the #PizzaGate smoke has not actually looked at the evidence.

Thanks to dedicated citizen journalists doing the job controlled Corporate Media won't do, The Truth will come out eventually .

Oh gee.... he didn't say it was false or untrue..... he just spews it out with no evidence!! Is this some kind of a joke?

This is the kind of crap that is/ becoming normalized behavior. Trump does it with aplomb. All you do is spew whatever innuendo suits you into the air
which has the effect of people either flat out believing and others scrambling around trying to make sense or find proof.

Wrong. He did not say there was no evidence. Get your facts straight.

Read the statement yourself:

https://www.infowars.com/a-note-to-...ding-audiences-concerning-pizzagate-coverage/

Last fall before the Presidential election, a large number of media outlets began reporting on allegations arising from emails released by Wikileaks that appeared to come from John Podesta, who served Presidents Clinton and Obama and was the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Dozens of those stories and articles raised or discussed theories that some of Podesta’s emails contained code words for human trafficking and/or pedophilia. Stories also included allegations connecting members of the Democratic Party with a number of restaurants involved with a child sex ring. These stories were cited and discussed in social media and went viral on the Internet.

One of the persons mentioned in many of the stories in the media was a Washington, D.C. restaurant owner named James Alefantis, and his pizza restaurant Comet Ping Pong. It is fair to say that Mr. Alefantis is a prominent individual who has been mentioned as a power player in Washington. Mr. Alefantis and his restaurant were mentioned in many stories published by a lot of different outlets. Mr. Alefantis was quoted in many subsequent stories, and he denied any involvement in such child sex rings. These denials were reported in national media and many other media outlets and news websites.


The volume of stories was substantial, generated national headlines and came to be known across the country as “Pizzagate.” We at Infowars became a part of that discussion. We broadcast commentary about the allegations and the theory that the emails contained code words. We raised questions about information in Mr. Podesta’s emails and the Comet Ping Pong restaurant. We believed at that time that further investigation was necessary. In December 2016 we disassociated ourselves from the “Pizzagate” claims and theories, a position we reiterated last month after being contacted by Mr. Alefantis.

In late February 2017, we received a letter from Mr. Alefantis asking that we retract certain statements that he says were made in seven of our broadcasts between the last week of November and the first week of December 2016. We have attempted, through our lawyers, to contact Mr. Alefantis to discuss with him what sort of statement he would like to see made.

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. We were participating in a discussion that was being written about by scores of media outlets, in one of the most hotly contested and disputed political environments our country has ever seen. We relied on third party accounts of alleged activities and conduct at the restaurant. We also relied on accounts of reporters who are no longer with us. This was an ever-evolving story, which had a huge amount of commentary about it across many media outlets.

As I have said before, what became a heightened focus on Mr. Alefantis and Comet Ping Pong by many media outlets was not appropriate. 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.

I want our viewers and listeners to know that we regret any negative impact our commentaries may have had on Mr. Alefantis, Comet Ping Pong, or its employees. 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.

Here’s what we have done to clarify to the public. Months ago we took down the majority of broadcasts/videos including ones that only mentioned Pizzagate. This happened months before we were even contacted by Mr. Alefantis. Mr. Alefantis objected to portions of seven particular radio broadcasts. We have taken down those seven broadcasts and we have attempted to take down any broadcasts that mentioned Mr. Alefantis or Comet Ping Pong. We have attempted to do so not just on our website but also social media sites such as our YouTube channel. If Mr. Alefantis has other objections, we invite him to let us know. Two reporters who used to be associated with us are no longer with us. In a recent broadcast, I invited Mr. Alefantis on our program to state what he wanted to, and I again do so here. He has given interviews to many media outlets, and he is welcome to come on our show.

In issuing this statement, we are not admitting that Mr. Alefantis, or his restaurant, have any legal claim. We do not believe they do. But we are issuing this statement because we think it is the right thing to do. It will be no surprise to you that we will fight for children across America. But the Pizzagate narrative, as least as concerning Mr. Alefantis and Comet Ping Pong, we have subsequently determined was based upon what we now believe was an incorrect narrative. Despite the fact that we were far from the genesis of this story, it is never easy to admit when your commentaries are based on inaccurate information, but we feel like we owe it to you the listeners, viewers and supporters to make that statement, and give an apology to you and to Mr. Alefantis, when we do.

We encourage you to hold us accountable. We improve when you do.

Sounds definitive to me ... or gutless ... or feckless ... or .. all of the former. Jones is a joke looking for a punchline, and banking a large purse in the meantime. An entertainer who should put up, or shut up. Like most bullies, at the first sign of a counter claim he goes all weak at the knees. Guess that bank balance has to be looked after first. Love the way he seeks to blame his ex-reporters for the, errr, false narrative.

Should have blamed the satanic elite.

Oh for gods sake... 'a large number of media outlets'.....'Dozens of those stories and articles raised or discussed theories'

Yeah.... because 'they're' the one's doing it!!

It's like when Cheney quoted the NYT article saying Iraq is doing this and that.... it's because he got his surrogate, judit miller, to write that so he could
bloody quote it on the sunday news shows as 'fact'. Like Trump..."Doh... I heard things over the internets"

WTF, are we in the twilight zone or something??


Wrong. He did not say there was no evidence. Get your facts straight.
Lol... Wow. You listen to this joke and you talk of facts?

Is sounds to me like Jones was in danger of being sued.

I'm old enough to remember when questioning the Official 9/11 Narrative would win you an instant ass-whipping from most every redneck in Texas.

Alex Jones' tireless efforts to get at the truth and his bravery for suffering the ridicule and ignorant hate of people like you changed that for the better. His showmanship, dedication to exposing corruption, and business success all helped reduce "conservative" support for the insane Imperial wars.

You should thank him for that.

I'm not, but I can tune into ABCNNBCBSFox and watch the Twilight Zone of wild speculation, lies, and insane war propaganda anytime I want to see it.
Wow. What makes you think not wanting to listen to a nutter like Jones automatically means I think the MSM is any more truthful, lol. Enough said.



You should thank him for that.
Is that you Mr Jones?? Lol

Well, by your words you stand condemned. The "ignorant hate" is rather thick on the ground.

Believing Alex Jones is a sane, rational martyr of truth and justice, undermines every other point you're trying to make. Anyone capable of listening to him without their personal political filter can see him for what he really is.

I learned that Ad Hominem was Not An Argument when I was 11 years old.
I never said it was a proper argument, and I have agreed with some of your other posts; but, rightly or wrongly, it's hard for people to get past being told they should thank the Alex Jones' of the world.

Honestly, I believe he's playing a character, one that believes every conspiracy under the sun, for the benefit of his audience to derive a false sense of superiority, believing they are the ones with their eyes open. He shouts and screams his vitriol at the perceived sheep's lies and injustices, pounds his fist in defiance, and so his audience believes he is their champion, a brave man, unafraid of saying what they're thinking; their beacon of truth in a world of deception. It's madness.

But if not, if this is who he actually is, then the man's ignorance is matched only by his volume. I have no use for him either way.
