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.

Save conservative media!

Biden Looks Straight Into Camera, Says America Is ‘Morally Deprived’ — Watch

Proud American, right here.

He’s right. For once, Joe Biden is right. America is “morally deprived,” he just didn’t mention the people responsible for the decline. Because of far-left policies, this great nation allows women to get away with murder; allows lawbreakers and criminals to become citizens; and hands out “free” money to those unwilling to work. The only problem with Biden’s sentence is that he didn’t use the words “Democrats are” before “morally derived.” Biden blabbered, “I believe we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. And the simple truth is our soul be troubled as long as systemic racism is allowed to persist. We can’t eliminate ‘zimply’ overnight. We can’t ‘eliminateverthing.’ But it’s corrosive, it’s destructive and it’s costly. It costs every American. Not just who felt the sting of racial injustice. We’re not just less of a – We’re not just a nation of morally deprived because of systemic racism. We’re also less prosperous. We’re less successful. We’re less secure.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=33&v=OM6qa7WgFoU&feature=emb_title From Fox News: Biden revealed the federal government will purchase an additional 100 million doses of vaccine each from Pfizer and Moderna as part of its effort to ramp up the unprecedented vaccination drive. Even with the acquisition of more vaccine supplies, Biden warned that distribution will take time and other precautions, such as wearing masks, should remain a priority for Americans. “The brutal truth is, it’s going to take months before we can the majority of Americans vaccinated – months,” Biden said. “In the next few months, masks, not vaccines, are the best defense against COVID-19. Experts say that wearing masks from now just until April would save 50,000 lives that otherwise would pass away if we don’t wear these masks.” Sound off on Joe in the comments section…

Biden: America ‘Has Never Fully Lived Up to the Founding Principles of This Nation’

He just loves America so much.

President Goofy said some pretty silly things about America and the Trump Administration on Tuesday afternoon. Better get used to hearing that. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not – or whether the country can hang on long enough – we’re stuck with Joe and Kamala. These people and their supporters loathe America. It couldn’t be clearer. WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354147571552440320 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354149480367595521 Reaction from Right Scoop: Americans have not bought into a zero sum game and that’s not how America operates. But this is the bizarrely skewed version of America that Democrats want Americans to believe is happening. Which is why they always drag out this tired and very dishonest propaganda. One of the things that makes America great is that everyone in this country has the opportunity to succeed as long as government stays out of the way. It doesn’t matter if someone grows up in poverty or with a silver spoon in their mouth. Just look at Ben Carson as a great example! Joe is attempting to make it clear that he will be the most “progressive” president this country has ever seen. Not good. Not good at all.
