Mainstream Media Gleefully Reports Alex Jones’ “Flagship Radio Station” Is Shut Down. There’s Only One Problem.

Published

Regardless of your opinion of Alex “They’re Turning the Frogs Gay” Jones, if you believe in free speech, you should be concerned about the attacks against him.

Last week, we learned that Apple, Facebook, and Spotify launched what almost seemed to be a coordinated effort to shut down the reach of his website, InfoWars, and his daily radio show.

This was due to incredibly vague and problematic accusations of “hate speech,” a blanket statement the enemies of free speech use to apply to essentially anything that goes against the mainstream narrative.

It is one thing for social media outlets to censor the conspiracy theorist based on their own biased “community standards”, but it is definitely bizarre how quickly the mainstream media, who would no doubt the first to dismiss Jones’ brand of journalism as “fake news”, completely fabricated a story about him this week.

FCC Shuts Down Liberty Radio, Alex Jones’ Pirate Flagship Radio Station” reads the headline on Time.com, which reports the following:

AUSTIN, Texas — The Federal Communications Commission has shut down a pirate radio station that served as the flagship outlet for conservative conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

The Austin American-Statesman reports the FCC also has fined the station’s operators $15,000 — a fine the FCC says in a lawsuit the operators are refusing to pay.

The lawsuit filed in federal court in Austin alleges Liberty Radio operated on a channel without a license since at least 2013. The lawsuit names as defendants Walter Olenick and M. Rae Nadler-Olenick.

Several other outlets reported this story as such.

Notice anything, though?

There isn’t a shred of evidence offered as to how, exactly, this station was affiliated with Alex Jones.

Well, spoiler alert: it isn’t. 

Jones clarified on his website this week that the story is blatantly false.

As a content provider, Alex Jones and Infowars is not affiliated in any official capacity with the radio station recently shut down by the FCC, and it doesn’t appear that any journalists who inaccurately reported this e-mailed us for comment prior to running this false story.

Jones woke up Thursday morning to the “news” that he supposedly owns a “pirate” radio station in Austin, Texas, which is, of course, patently false.

Alex Jones released the following statement:

We do not operate any radio or TV stations anywhere in the country.

Claims that we are running an illegal radio station in Austin, Texas, are a complete and total hoax by mainstream, corporate media to imply to the world that our broadcast is somehow illegal.

We legally and lawfully transmit our broadcast like every other TV and radio show in the world to affiliates that have licenses on cable TV, broadcast TV and AM/FM radio.

They also shared this statement of clarification from the FCC chairman himself:

It is important to make clear that our pirate radio enforcement efforts — including this one — have nothing to do with the content of pirate radio stations air. We act against pirate radio stations because they are violating the law by broadcasting on the FM airwaves without a license.

So where did this idea that the station shut down by the FCC for operating without a license was Jones’ “flagship station?” Why would journalists, who have spent so much time over the last two years trying to convince us of their honor and respectability, fail to do their due diligence and simply ask Jones if he was indeed affiliated with the station?

You may consider Jones’ material to be “fake news”, but you can’t deny that the mainstream media just did exactly what they take for granted that he does each and every day: create blatantly biased propaganda for the sake of sensationalism and pandering to their audience.

Only the amount of influence they have is much, much bigger than Jones…and they try to convince us every day they’re unbiased.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

Published

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
