    This sort of stuff has been expected from Jones since last year after the Pizzagate Scandal and Chobani Lawsuits threaten to expose him for being deranged.

    Here are updates.

    Former staffers at controversial conspiracy theory website InfoWars claim founder Alex Jones laughed as they endured frequent racist harassment and once groped a female employee, according to a new report.

    Rob Jacobson, who is Jewish, and Ashley Beckford, who is black, both filed complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission earlier this month outlining the abuse they allegedly suffered working under Jones and other colleagues, documents published by the Daily Mail reveals.

    Beckford, a production assistant and presenter, said she lasted less than a year at the website, during which time Jones allegedly groped her butt while saying, “Who wouldn’t want a black wife?”

    He also wandered around shirtless while “leering” at female employees and guests, she claims.

    One colleague called her a “c-on,” another kept referring to black people as “colored” on air — despite Beckford’s objections — while a third flaunted a pair of swastika-covered sneakers he received from a fan, she claims.

    She also says she was pressured to engage with Hillary Clinton supporters on camera — who subjected her to “racial slurs” and called her an “Uncle Tom.”

    Beckford says she was ultimately fired after demanding the same pay as her white, male colleagues.

    Meanwhile, Jacobson, a video editor, claims he was mocked for being Jewish and that Jones also nicknamed him “Beefcake” — a reference, he says, to gay porn.

    “My employer used racial slurs against me, calling me ‘The Resident Jew,’ ‘The Jewish Individual,’ and ‘Yacobson.’ My workplace was a syndicated radio show, so these slurs were made publicly, on air,” he writes in his complaint.

    “My employer also inserted my face onto the photo of a Hasidic Jewish man and circulated that picture around the office.”

    When KKK leader David Duke came on InfoWars as a guest, Jones introduced Jacobson as his “Jewish employee” while Duke called him “the Jewish individual” — a nickname other colleagues adopted, he says.

    Jacobson believes he was fired as an act of retaliation for complaining to HR.

    Jones denied most of the allegations to the Daily Mail as “completely, totally false” — but acknowledged that Duke called Jacobson a “Jewish individual.”

    Jones and Harassment Scandals were expected ever since Jones said he may have done stuff to 150 women to be a man. If Jones was telling the truth that meant that he has more victims than Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, and all other celebrities that's been named in the me too scandal.

    But in an Alex Jones Scandal infowars will cover up this harassment scandal with some other scandal they created.

    Damn here we go again I expect this supposed birther conspiracy to come into play again and even longer than when Obama was president. Apparently the birther conspiracy that "Alex Jones is Bill Hicks" has been around longer since 2006 in this article and resurfaced again when Alex Jones came up with the "Performance artist" card last year.

    Update Alex Jones is named in a lawsuit but this time Pepe the frog's owners suing Jones. Damn right when the Harassment scandals were going to be discussed here this happens.

    Matt Furie says his "peaceful frog-dude" was co-opted in a poster featuring Pepe alongside InfoWars founder Alex Jones, President Donald Trump, Milo Yiannopoulos and others.

    The legal campaign to take Pepe the Frog back from the alt-right is now in California federal court as artist Matt Furie has filed a copyright lawsuit against InfoWars.

    Furie says he created Pepe as a "peaceful frog-dude" at the beginning of the century with the catchphrase "Feels good man." His anthropomorphic creation then became a meme on the internet, and was tweeted by Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Buzzfeed, among others.

    "But beginning in 2015, various fringe groups connected with the alt-right attempted to co-opt Pepe by mixing images of Pepe with images of hate, including white supremacist language and symbols, Nazi symbols, and other offensive imagery," states the complaint lodged in court Monday. "Furie has worked hard to counteract that negative image of Pepe, including collaborating with the Anti-Defamation League on the #SavePepe campaign to restore Pepe as a character representing peace, togetherness, and fun."

    The lawsuit pinpoints one poster in particular as a source of copyright infringement. The poster features Pepe alongside InfoWars founder Alex Jones, President Donald Trump, Milo Yiannopoulos, Ann Coulter, Matt Drudge, Roger Stone and others with the text "MAGA," short for Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again."

    Furie, represented by attorney Rebecca Girolamo at Wilmer Cutler, says he didn't authorize such use of Pepe. He alleges the poster is being sold by InfoWars in its online store.

    Infowars, Alex Jones sued again, this time after falsely identifying man as Parkland shooter

    On one day, Marcel Fontaine was “just a guy in his 20s from Massachusetts minding his own business,” said his attorney, Bill Ogden.

    On the next, he was wrongly labeled as the mass shooter who killed 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14.

    Somehow Fontaine’s picture wound up in an article on the conspiracy theory website Infowars.com, headlined “Reported Florida Shooter Dressed as a Communist, Supported ISIS.” The article featured photos from the Instagram account of the actual alleged shooter, Nikolas Cruz. Then came a random photo of Fontaine. He was holding up a fist and wearing a red shirt parodying communist and Marxist leaders.

    “Shooter is a commie,” was the caption below Fontaine’s photo.

    Now, Fontaine is suing Infowars and its owner, Alex Jones, for defamation, claiming Infowars’ reckless decision to connect him to the shooting using his photo has “irreparably tainted” Fontaine’s image and led to harassment, even after the photo was removed.

    Update Alex Jones is sued for the Sandy Hook rants

    On multiple occasions, Jones has claimed that the Sandy Hook attack did not actually happen, calling the massacre – which claimed the lives of 20 first-graders and six teachers – a "giant hoax" and insisting that it was staged by professional actors. A representative for InfoWars, Jones' media company, did not immediately reply to a request for comment.



    "Our clients have been tormented for five years by Mr. Jones' ghoulish accusations that they are actors who faked their children's deaths as part of a fraud on the American people," Mark Bankston, an attorney for the plaintiffs, told The Hollywood Reporter. "Enough is enough."

    Both lawsuits focus on statements that Jones made relatively recently, including a 2017 segment on his radio show entitled "Sandy Hook Vampires Exposed." The New York Times reports that the lawsuits allege, "[Jones'] statements were a continuation and elaboration of a years-long campaign to falsely attack the honesty of the Sandy Hook parents, casting them as participants in a ghastly conspiracy and cover-up."

    After being sued, Alex Jones suddenly believes Sandy Hook actually happened


    In a YouTube video, Jones said he now believes the shooting really happened, and that the families are being used by the Democratic Party and the news media. Jones invited the parents onto his program for a discussion about guns.

    In the past, Jones has repeatedly claimed the shooting was staged and that parents of children who died in the shooting are actors.

    Same with Donald Trump's cabinet you can say the exact same stuff. But its insane that Alex Jones has more scandals than even Fox News, people on the me too list, Sinclair.

    This is an opinion piece by one of the father's of a Sandy Hook victim. He's explaining why he feels he has to sue Alex Jones. Alex Jones should be lucky I was not this kid's parent. Suing would be the least of his worries. Alex Jones is such a piece of shit!

    Neil Heslin Alex Jones has profited off the lies he told about me. He needs to face the consequences.
    I believe the InfoWars founder's business model is to make false statements about other people's tragedies.

    An update on Jones


    Losing a child in a horrific event like the December 2012 Sandy Hook School shooting causes unimaginable grief and suffering. Add to that pain the incessant rantings of conspiracy theorists, who claim the entire scenario was staged to promote a gun-control agenda, and the incident becomes farcical, surreal, unbearable.

    Three Sandy Hook parents — Neil Hesslin, Leonard Pozner, and Veronique De La Rosa — said enough is enough and sued talk-show host Alex Jones last week for defamation, alleging he called them “crisis actors” and incited “death threats” against them.

    Hesslin filed one lawsuit, while Pozner and De La Rosa filed another. The suits, each seeking $1 million, were filed in Texas because Infowars, Jones’ infamous media company, is located there.

    In July, Alex Jones appeared with Megan Kelly on national TV in an NBC interview defending the variety of conspiracy theories he espouses, including Sandy Hook. Local NBC affiliate WVIT decided not to air the interview “because the wounds caused by the Sandy Hook tragedy are ‘understandably still so raw’.”

    Pozner, in a Hartford Courant op-ed days before the interview, condemned NBC for the publicity it afforded Jones: “The narrative alleges that the 26 victims and their parents, the police and first responders, and the majority of the town were actually crisis actors on the government’s payroll. This, despite the widespread availability of legitimate information to the contrary. Jones and his fellow ‘hoaxers’ have up until now spread this thoroughly debunked theory in the darkest corners of the media, shamelessly exploiting a tragedy to make a quick buck. Now, to the dismay of rational society, Jones landed the mainstream media interview of a lifetime.”

    And hence, the lawsuit nine months later. As Ponzer noted, “tens of thousands are flocking to charismatic con men like Jones, with cultish reverence and conviction. With the aid of media platforms such as alternative talk radio, YouTube, Google, Facebook, and Twitter, scores more are being reached and indoctrinated into the cult of delusional lunacy every day.”

    Indeed, it’s a self-perpetuating system.

    University of North Carolina professor Zeynep Tujekci explained that “algorithms push YouTube viewers toward ever-more-intense content. If you keep clicking on videos about running, you’ll eventually get ultramarathons. Similarly, if you like Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton videos, algorithms will push you toward more extreme content on the right and left.”

    This environment has enabled extremists like Alex Jones to flourish. At that same time, it’s an environment that finds the traditional news media floundering.

    According to a Monmouth University poll released earlier this month, “Large majorities of the American public believe that traditional media outlets engage in reporting fake news and that outside sources are actively trying to plant fake stories in the mainstream media.”

    Specifically, “More than three in four Americans believe that traditional major TV and newspaper media outlets report ‘fake news’.” For 65% of Americans, “fake news” is not limited to “false or counterfeit” material “reported in a newspaper or news periodical or on a newscast” — the standard dictionary definition. For them, “fake news” also means “how news outlets make editorial decisions about what they choose to report.”

    Said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University poll: “These findings are troubling, no matter how you define ‘fake news.’ Confidence in an independent fourth estate is a cornerstone of a healthy democracy. Ours appears to be headed for the intensive care unit.”

    The situation is of particular concern with national news. Fortunately, Connecticut is still served capably by “legacy media” outlets at the state and local level, most notably daily newspapers. The state has 10 daily newspapers with circulations of at least 15,000 within a total of 15 dailies overall. Not bad for a state of 3.5 million people.

    In addition, Connecticut boasts at least seven news websites registered with LION (Local Independent Online News Publishers) — including CT News Junkie — that provide original reporting. Other regions of the country should be so lucky. The midsection of the country has been hit particularly hard by dying newspapers, resulting in “news deserts,” as a quick look at this map reveals.

    So while news events in Connecticut are covered thoroughly by Connecticut news outlets, when those events become national news — like Sandy Hook — the coverage outside of the state is uneven, opening the door for media hucksters like Alex Jones.

    The lawsuits filed by Hesslin, Pozner, and De La Rosa against Infowars, therefore, is long overdue. Here’s hoping the Sandy Hook parents win, putting a major dent in the bogus and reckless efforts of charlatans like Alex Jones.
