Fact check unreliable.

Claim that credible information never comes from this source is spurious and actually provably false.

...you quoted wiki, a website who is not even a reliable source of information according to themselves. Name one major news outlet than has not been forced to print numerous retractions.

Any person / website that promotes one conspiracy theory as factual lacks credibility.

It's one thing to have an opinion [ I think this school shooting was staged ] and another to pass opinion off as fact [ This school shooting was staged ] for the sake of profiting from merchandise sales [ Infowars t-shirts, etc ] to a gullible public.

Think of it as a PSA to not waste one's fucking precious time, like I already am now.

p.s. to the psa

I also want to point out that Alex Jones is a controversial person with followers who feel the need to defend him. His page is under great scrutiny. It was most likely filled with false information edited in by himself or his followers, which was then removed. Their IP adresses were likely banned, while the page was definitely locked. See the "padlock" icon in the upper righthand area of the page. Only volunteers and employees with permission to edit the page are allowed to, whereas much of Wikipedia is open to public editing.

Fact: persons opinions and websites and their articles by various sources are not the same. With each one the article quality produced varies greatly.

Liberal and conservative conspiracy are rife in the news. They are buried in every paper. They earn a lot of ridicule from the left and right audiences they serve.

With the obvious, as with Sandy Hook, you will not find anyone building a gospel from opinion.

I found it to be forgivable paranoia, as was the reaction to the fraudulent Trump call report, which conspiracy is now strongly disavowed by WaPo.

If you arenít getting paid to be an online shill, why put yourself through it? You only insult the intelligence of your peers by over-worrying.

Defend the reported facts, not the commentary. I have never needed to  defend extremist commentary, only the onerous facts presented on news articles, left and right.

Donít throw the baby out with the bath-water.

Fallible opinion happens everywhere. Opinion and fact are two different things. If you cannot distinguish, you cannot fact-check.

If you can only say Amen at Brain Stelterís of CNNís nonsense rantings, you cannot imagine what Iím talking about. Heís as unimportant as Tucker or AJ and this reality galls him unceasingly.

And when JB says credible source he is referring to anything that supports the left and authoritarianism... Any source that disagrees with him is, of course, false and not credible. Amazing to see someone use wikipedia to claim other sources are biased. Truth and facts are relative to the day and everyone's "feelings" . Situational ethics is more powerful because you can flip flop your morals like segregationist Biden has done for 48 years. Thank you president Biden for opening the gates to drug and sex trafficking cartels. One facility is at 729 % capacity with children back in cages and room for only one shower a week. Thanks Biden, but I will not help you brag about stimulus checks while a crisis is at the border created by democrats, as usual...

^ Is referring to the current situation of children crossing the border into the U.S. without being accompanied by parents, guardians, or any adults -and- the Biden administration's efforts to house them and actually reunite them with their families.
