Earlier this week Alex Jones’ Infowars, the popular libertarian alternative news outlet, posted a story on Amazon.com’s censorship of the Jim Fetzer-Mike Palecek-edited volume Nobody Died at Sandy Hook, which was pulled by the behemoth online retailer as well as its subsidiary and the book’s publisher Create Space just a few weeks following the October 22, 2015 publication. Infowars staff publicized their article by “Tweeting” it out under the hashtag #StopAmazonCensorship.
Shortly thereafter, however, Infowars abruptly pulled the article without explanation to its readership.
What’s going on here? After all, Alex Jones runs a company called “Free Speech Systems.” He reaches several million listeners weekly with an ostensible message of “defeating the New World Order.” The “globalist NWO” must first eviscerate the Second Amendment to enact its agenda, and Nobody Died at Sandy Hook provides solid and conclusive evidence that the entire event “wasn’t a school massacre. It was a FEMA drill.”
We must point out that Infowars approached the Sandy Hook massacre with no small degree of trepidation. Much like its treatment of the phony Boston Marathon bombing just a few months thereafter, the multi-million dollar news outlet could have sent a pack of reporters to further investigate the still-extremely controversial event. It never did. It still hasn’t. As far as investigative journalism for an alt-news outlet goes this is low-lying fruit, fish in a barrel, etc.
Jones is a talented radio personality, and Infowars frequently produces very worthwhile content, yet on key events like Sandy Hook, indisputably within the terrain of its police state/gun control/false flag “news pegs,” the outlet is uncomfortably quiescent. Why? Maybe it’s because Jones still sees himself as a juncture to the mainstream vis-a-vis Glenn Beck’s dunderhead audience. Could be a result of Jones’ longtime aversion to co-editor Jim Fetzer. Perhaps Infowars recognizes that it’s no longer a scoop, having already been covered extensively by Rense and Natural News. Maybe it’s something more.
