Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones Apologizes
For Promoting 'Pizzagate'
March 26, 2017
Longtime conspiracy theorist and propagator Alex Jones has apologized
to the Washington, D.C. pizzeria Comet Ping Pong and its owner
James Alefantis for his show's role in promoting the false "pizzagate"
conspiracy theory involving a child sex-abuse ring.
Jones, the host of the radio and web show bearing his name and the
owner of the website Infowars, said from a prepared statement that to his knowledge, "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."http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/03/26/521545788/conspiracy-theorist-alex-jones-apologizes-for-promoting-pizzagate
