Alex Jones claims Brian Stelter, Lester Holt, and other high-profile media figures will have advance knowledge of "staged terror attacks" carried out against media companies
ALEX JONES (HOST): And ladies and gentlemen, this is about taking down America and [President Donald] Trump and the recovery and the entire free press. So I’m telling you, like night follows day, the staged terror attacks are coming on big tech, government buildings, mainstream media. All the stars will be gone that day. All the [Brian] Stelters will be gone that day, all the Lester Holts will be gone. And they are going to drive a truck bomb or something into a daycare at CNN or ABC or...

In 2012, conservative radio host Mark Levin challenged the sitting president to a debate, but you probably don’t remember hearing about it.
"I will give $50,000 to Obama's Super PAC if he will debate me for one hour,” Levin said. “Now he’s flying all over the country in exchange for meals and handshakes and photos. People are giving a lot less than that. Just one hour, a debate. It doesn’t even have to be televised. In fact, we’ll do it right here on this program....

It’s been almost a year since off-brand James Bond supervillain Sebastian Gorka was fired or resigned (definitely fired) from his ill-defined job in Donald Trump’s White House, and Gorka is still finding ways to monetize his seven months of public pseudo service. He’s followed some well-worn D.C. insider tracks by signing on as a Fox News contributor and guest lecturer at the Heritage Foundation, but he’s also running a side hustle squeezing speaking fees and the...
GOP candidate paid to use Roger Stone's email list -- and then Stone praised that candidate on Facebook
Roger Stone endorsed New York Republican congressional candidate Dan DeBono on Facebook shortly after his campaign paid to send a sponsored message to the dirty trickster's email list. It’s at least the second time that Stone has supported a Republican candidate after receiving sponsorship money.
Stone is a longtime adviser to President Donald Trump and currently works as a host for conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ Infowars network. Stone is also a vicious racist, misogynist, liar, and conspiracy...
NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch: “The Me Too movement thing was an attempt to hijack real trauma … and use it as a vehicle for political purpose”
DANA LOESCH (HOST): We brought you the story the other day about the explosive allegations against DNC Vice Chairman Keith Ellison in which his former girlfriend accuses him of being a controlling, abusive maniac who emotionally destroyed her. And she now claims that she has the texts and the videos to back it up. But despite that, the DNC has barely said a word. Their "believe all women" mantra suddenly seems incapable of making a dent in that silence. And in fact Ellison still seems to be on...

Fox & Friends applauds Trump's revocation of former CIA Dir. Brennan's security clearance: "Oh, it's payback"
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): It was back in the summer of 2016, that guy right there, who, at the time was the CIA director, went to Harry Reid (D-NV) who was the top senator on the Democratic side with the dossier. And then he showed him the dossier. Harry Reid then wrote a letter to [former FBI Director] James Comey saying, hey, the FBI's got to investigate this, and then the FBI did. So, in other words, it started with Brennan, then Harry Reid, and then James Comey, and that's how we got to where...
Tucker Carlson and guest claim Christine Hallquist won gubernatorial primary because of "transgender privilege"
ROBIN BIRO: I don't want to besmirch her free right to speech.
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): OK. But hold on --
BIRO: As a transgender woman, she's come under a lot of criticism.
CARLSON: Oh well I don't know if she has or not. I think she's celebrated for it, let's stop pretending, of course she is celebrated for it.
CHADWICK MOORE: You're absolutely right to acknowledge Hallquist's transgender privilege. She can get away with many, many things by being transgender, who knows if that's even how...
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Let me ask you real quick? Why does nobody-- I totally get that and I actually hate litter which is one of the reasons I'm so against illegal immigration. It produces a huge amount of litter. Huge amount of litter. And I mean that with total sincerity.
Tucker Carlson says Starbucks' anti-bias training is a racist attack on white people
Tucker Carlson: Mexico and its “offspring of conquistadors” is “far more racist” than the US
Tucker Carlson compares...
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): It's not clear why any of these men still have legal access to classified material. The fact that they retained that power after leaving government for the private sector and punditry is bizarre and it remained largely unknown to the public until a month ago until when we broke that story on this show.

In drawing equivalencies between white supremacists and antifa, media outlets obscure ideologies -- and impacts
Melissa Joskow/Media Matters
Last weekend marked the sequel to 2017’s violent right-wing rally in Charlottesville, VA, that left one counterprotester dead and many injured. Unite the Right 2, as the anniversary event was dubbed, was poorly attended by a small coterie of white supremacists. The media focused a significant amount of their coverage of the event on a sensationalized version of the threat posed by the loose, decentralized group of anti-fascist activists collectively known as...
Twitter’s half measures against Alex Jones don’t make much sense unless he’s getting special treatment
Sarah Wasko / Media Matters
Hours after being banned from tweeting for a week, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was conducting a live broadcast from an alternate Twitter account where he doubled down on a previous claim that special counsel Robert Mueller oversees people raping children.
During the evening of August 14, Twitter took action against Jones’ primary account, @RealAlexJones, after the account sent a tweet that linked to a video on Periscope in which Jones called on his supporters to...
