Embattled conspiracy theorist Alex Jones says there is a sinister cabal behind the current PR nightmare at FOX News.
On his radio show, he listed the usual lists of suspects.
“A lot of people have a vested interest in seeing FOX News goes down, the CIA, Black Lives Matter, the Black Panthers and the shape-shifting reptilian aliens,” said Jones on his radio show “InfoWars.” “The aliens are embedded in all aspects of the media. They can look like anyone.”
However, Jones isn’t the only person who sees a conspiracy behind FOX News’ woes. The network is still dealing with the fallout of last year’s sex scandal which cost former CEO Roger Ailes his job. Network poster boy Bill O’Reilly was recently fired for multiple incidents of sexual harassment and several black employees have filed a class action racial discrimination lawsuit.
But in an appearance on “Hannity,” former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said there was a “war on FOX News.”
