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

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.
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.
