Is Alex Jones still on the air? The grim return of Alex Jones

American far-right and alt-right radio show host Alexander Emerick Jones was born on February 11, 1974, and is well-known for his conspiracy theories.

From Austin, Texas, he is the host of The Alex Jones Show, which is syndicated and streamed online by the Genesis Communications Network to listeners nationwide.

Conspiracy theories and false news are promoted on Jones’s websites, InfoWars, NewsWars, and PrisonPlanet.

Furthermore, President Trump has promoted a number of repeatedly disproven conspiracy theories advanced by Jones, including claims about President Barack Obama’s birthplace and allegations that millions of illegal immigrants voted in the 2016 presidential election.
