Conspiracy Theorists Possibly To Receive Press Credentials... (trump file day 8)

Rational Nation USA Purveyor of Truth


Whoopee! Alex Jones and InfoWars to possibly get press credentials from the trump House in DC. Alternative facts and conspiracy journalism to gain prominence in the era of trump.

There’s too much crazy shit happening to keep track of it all. But let’s take a moment to reflect on the fact that Alex Jones, the nation’s leading conspiracy theorist and an ally of the president, appears to be on the verge of getting White House briefing room access for his conspiracy website

“I know I can get White House credentials, we've already been offered them, we're going to get them, but I've just got to spend the money to send somebody there,” Jones said in a video posted to his YouTube account last week. “Might be good to put a few reporters there, it's just all a money issue.”


After we reported Jones’ comments, a White House press aide issued a non-denial denial, telling BuzzFeed News that Jones himself “is not credentialed” and that the “White House press office has not offered him credentials.” Jones then claimed he had been taken out of context and was just considering applying for credentials.

But on Tuesday, Jerome Corsi -- Infowars’ newly-minted Washington, D.C., bureau chief and the author of the birther tome Where’s The Birth Certificate? -- announced that he had submitted the pertinent information to the White House to receive credentials. According to Corsi, the “White House press office today didn’t think there would be any problem in Infowars and Alex Jones and me getting press credentials.”

Here’s a brief list of Jones’ panoply of horribles:

  1. This is too horrible to be true. I can't stand to read his bibliography. I don't have the fortitude left to take in this much.

    1. Yeah, I know what you mean Flying Junior. It keeps getting crazier with each passing day. Or so it seems.

      I'm thinking of buying an Audio Technica turntable, picking up some new vinyls, a little MJ, and getting lost in the music.

      This trump administration sh*t is just too bizarre.

  2. A LOT of people believe this stuff. Jones is nothing new, as you know. We've had loonies like him in positions of power before, and it never ended well (though, usually it's just from incompetence and not catastrophe). I don't understand why smarter people can't get closer to Trump and get him more stable and sane. I'd long suspected the GOP was loaded with incompetents, but this is the final proof. They are allowing insanity at this point.

  3. I don't understand why smarter people can't get closer to Trump and get him more stable and sane.

    Perhaps it is because he only allows those as crazy as himself to get close to him and advise him. He's such a GD narcissist that what he wants and needs is people who will reaffirm ius idiocy.

    There are smart folks in the GOP, but, until such time as they see trump as a net negative relative to their own political well being tey will stick with and support his lunacy.
