Following the horrific December 2012 school shooting of young children and adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., talk radio host Alex Jones initially theorized that, based on some evidence he unearthed, the incident may have been staged.
During a broadcast almost two years later, Jones said, “We’ve clearly got people where it’s actors playing different parts of different people. I’ve looked at it and undoubtedly there’s a cover-up, there’s actors, they’re manipulating, they’ve been caught lying and they were pre-planning before it and rolled out with it.”
In response, the mainstream media (MSM) jumped on Jones as a blatant conspiracy theorist, criticized him for making his claims, and demonized him in every imaginable way, simply because he questioned the official narrative based on some of his findings. After all, it isn’t as if the government isn’t capable of doing horrible things in order to advance, say, a gun control agenda like the Obama administration tried with its Mexican gun-running operation “Fast and Furious.”
Nevertheless, Jones pushed back against the media smears. “This is all out of context. … And it’s not even what I said or my intent,” he noted after nearly a half-dozen parents of children killed at the school filed a lawsuit.

Fast forward to this week.
The very same MSM that savaged Jones and smeared his name and reputation so badly has now misreported — intentionally? — the incident last weekend involving a ‘confrontation’ between a teen Catholic boy in a MAGA hat and a Native American activist named Nathan Phillips.
The lies told by the media were so egregious that the school — Covington Catholic High — actually had to close its doors for a day out of fear that its students would be attacked, even shot and killed, by a riled-up lunatic, according to threats cited by law enforcement.
When Jones questioned the official version of events at Sandy Hook, he was pilloried by the very same press that could have actually caused another school shooting thanks to its fake news reporting.
A dangerous irony.
