Jones was born in 1974 in Dallas, Texas, and grew up in the Dallas
suburb of Rockwall and the city of Austin, Texas. His father is a
dentist and his mother a homemaker. In his video podcasts, he
reports he is of Irish, German, Welsh, mostly English, and
partially Native American descent. He was a lineman on his high
school's football team and graduated from Anderson High School in
Austin in 1993. As a teenager, he read conservative journalist
Gary Allen's None Dare Call It Conspiracy, which had a profound
influence on him and which he calls "the easiest-to-read primer on The
New World Order". After high school, Jones briefly attended Austin
Community College but dropped out.
Jones began his career in Austin with a live, call-in format
public-access cable television program. In 1996, Jones switched
format to radio, hosting a show named The Final Edition on KJFK (98.9
Ron Paul was running for Congress and was a guest on his show
several times. In his early shows, Jones frequently talked about
his belief that the United States government was behind the 1995
Oklahoma City bombing, using the incident to put down a growing
"states' rights movement". In 1998, he released his first film,
America Destroyed By Design.
In 1998, Jones organized a successful effort to build a new Branch
Davidian church, as a memorial to those who died during the 1993 fire
that ended the government's siege of the original Branch Davidian
complex near Waco, Texas. He often featured the project on his
public-access television program and claimed that
David Koresh and his
followers were peaceful people who were murdered by Attorney General
Janet Reno and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms during the
siege. In the same year, he was removed from a George W. Bush
rally at Bayport Industrial District, Texas. Jones interrupted
governor Bush's speech, demanding that the
Federal Reserve and Council
on Foreign Relations be abolished.
Journalist David Weigel, reporting
on the incident, said Jones "seemed to launch into public events as if
flung from another universe."
In 1999, Jones tied with Shannon Burke for that year's "Best Austin
Talk Radio Host" poll, as voted by
The Austin Chronicle
The Austin Chronicle readers.
Later that year, he was fired from KJFK-FM for refusing to broaden his
topics. His views were making the show hard to sell to advertisers,
according to the station's operations manager. Jones stated:
It was purely political, and it came down from on high ... I was
told 11 weeks ago to lay off [Bill] Clinton, to lay off all these
politicians, to not talk about rebuilding the church, to stop bashing
the Marines, A to Z.
He began broadcasting his show by Internet connection from his
In early 2000, Jones was one of seven Republican candidates for state
representative in Texas House District 48, an open swing district
based in Austin, Texas. Jones stated that he was running "to be a
watchdog on the inside" but withdrew from the race after a couple
of weeks. In July, a group of Austin Community Access Center (ACAC)
programmers claimed that Jones used legal proceedings and ACAC policy
to intimidate them or get their shows thrown off the air.
In 2001, his show was syndicated on approximately 100 stations.
9/11 attack, Jones began to speak of a conspiracy by the
Bush administration as being behind the attack, which caused a
number of the stations that had previously carried him to drop his
program, according to Will Bunch.
Jones at a protest in Dallas in 2014
On June 8, 2006, while on his way to cover a meeting of the Bilderberg
Group in Ottawa, Jones was stopped and detained at the
by Canadian authorities who confiscated his passport, camera
equipment, and most of his belongings. He was later allowed to enter
Canada lawfully. Jones said about the reason for his immigration hold,
"I want to say, on the record, it takes two to tango. I could have
handled it better."
On September 8, 2007, he was arrested while protesting at 6th Avenue
and 48th Street in New York City. He was charged with operating a
megaphone without a permit. Two others were also cited for disorderly
conduct when his group crashed a live television show featuring
Geraldo Rivera. In an article, one of Jones' fellow protesters said,
"It was ... guerrilla information warfare."
On June 6, 2013, Jones addressed international media for the annual
Bilderberg conference in Watford, England. He gave an
hour-long speech to around 2,000 protesters in the grounds of The
Grove hotel, where he was "rapturously welcomed", "surrounded by
cameras and peppered with questions".
On July 21, 2016, following the 2016 Republican National Convention,
Roger Stone began plotting the removal of
Ted Cruz from his
Senate seat after he failed to endorse
Donald Trump as the Republican
presidential candidate, with potential challengers Katrina
Pierson and Dan Patrick mooted as replacements in the upcoming Texas
election for Senate in 2018.
On July 6, 2017, alongside Paul Joseph Watson, Jones began hosting a
contest to create the best "
CNN Meme", in which the winner would
receive $20,000. The contest was created in response to
an article regarding a controversial Reddit user that had created a

In February 2018, Jones was accused by two former employees of
antisemitism, anti-black racism and sexual harassment of males and
females. Jones denied the allegations.

Radio, websites and mail-order business
Alex Jones Show is broadcast nationally by the Genesis
Communications Network to more than 90 AM and FM radio stations in the
United States, including WWCR, a shortwave radio station. The
Sunday show also airs on KLBJ. In 2010, the show attracted around 2
million listeners each week.
According to journalist Will Bunch, a senior fellow at Media Matters
for America, the show has a demographic heavier in younger
viewers than other conservative pundits due to Jones's "highly
conspiratorial tone and Web-oriented approach". Bunch has also stated
that Jones "feed[s] on the deepest paranoia". According to
Alexander Zaitchik of
Rolling Stone magazine, in 2011 he had a larger
on-line audience than
Glenn Beck and
Rush Limbaugh combined.

Jones is the Publisher and Director of the website Infowars.com.
The Infowars website receives approximately 10 million monthly visits,
making it more popular than some mainstream news websites such as The
Economist and Newsweek.
In August 2017, Jones announced the launch of NewsWars.com, a site
Jones said was intended to battle fake news.
Alex Jones also operates PrisonPlanet.com.
A 2017 piece for German magazine Der Spiegel by Veit Medick indicated
that two-thirds of Jones' funds derive from sales of a successful
range of his own products. These products are marketed through the
Infowars website and through advertising spots on Jones' show. They
include dietary supplements, toothpaste, bulletproof vests and "brain
pills" "appealing to those who believes Armageddon is near", according
In August 2017, Californian medical company
Labdoor, Inc reported on
tests applied to six of Jones' dietary supplement products. These
included a product named 'Survival Shield', which was found by Labdoor
to contain only iodine, and a product named 'Oxy-Powder', which
comprised a compound of magnesium oxide and citric acid; common
ingredients in dietary supplements. Labdoor indicated no evidence of
prohibited or harmful substances, but cast doubt on Infowars'
marketing claims for these products, and asserted that the quantity of
the ingredients in certain products would be "too low to be
On a segment of Last Week Tonight, host
John Oliver stated that Jones

economic problems claimed to be caused by the conspiracy theories
described on his show.

Jones is well-known and widely reported in media for both his
opposition to vaccines, and his views on vaccine
controversies. On June 16, 2017, Vox covered his claim that

effectiveness of MMR vaccines.
Mother Jones has claimed that Jones is a believer in weather
weapons, and Salon has covered his claim "that the president has
access to weather weapons capable of not only creating tornadoes but
also moving them around, on demand." His belief in weather
warfare has been widely reported by mainstream media.
He has claimed that
Hurricane Irma may have been geo-engineered.
Jones is a believer in the white genocide conspiracy theory.
Media Matters covered his claim that
NFL players protesting the
national anthem were "kneeling to white genocide" and violence against
whites, which the SPLC featured in their headlines review.
On October 2, 2017, Jones announced that Democrats and communists were
plotting imminent "white genocide" attacks. His reporting and
public views on the topic have received support and coverage from
white nationalist publications and groups, such as
the New Zealand National Front.
Jones has been the center of many controversies, such as the one
surrounding his actions and statements about gun control after the
Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. He has accused the United
States government of being involved in the Oklahoma City bombing
and the September 11 attacks. In 2009, Jones claimed that a
convicted con man's scheme to take over a long-vacant, would-be
for-profit prison in
Hardin, Montana was part of a FEMA plot to detain
U.S. citizens in concentration camps. Jones was in a "media
crossfire" in 2011, which included criticism by Rush Limbaugh, when
the news spread that Jared Lee Loughner, the perpetrator of the 2011
Tucson shooting, had been "a fan" of the
9/11 conspiracy film Loose

about the 2012
Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting
Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and the 2018
Stoneman Douglas High School shooting
Stoneman Douglas High School shooting being false flag operations
engineered by gun control advocates. In particular, he has stated that
"no one died" in Sandy Hook and that Stoneman Douglas survivor David
Hogg was a crisis actor. Claims made in support of these
theories have been proven false.
In February 2017, the lawyers of James Alefantis, owner of Comet Ping
Pong pizzeria, sent Jones a letter demanding an apology and retraction
for his role in pushing the Pizzagate conspiracy theory. Under Texas
law, Jones was given a month to comply or be subject to a libel
suit. In March 2017,
Alex Jones apologized to Alefantis for
promulgating the conspiracy theory and retracted his allegations.
In April 2017, the
Chobani yogurt company filed a lawsuit against
Jones for his article that claims that the company's factory in Idaho,
which employs refugees, was connected to a 2016 child sexual assault
and a rise in tuberculosis cases. As a result of the lawsuit,
Jones issued an apology and retraction of his allegations in May
Relationship to Donald Trump
In December 2015, Jones initially "formed a bond" with Donald Trump,
after the presidential candidate appeared on The
Alex Jones Show,
claiming that Jones had an "amazing reputation". During the 2016
Hillary Clinton criticized
Donald Trump for his
ties to Alex Jones. Jones said that Trump called him on the
day after the election to thank him for his help in the campaign.
Donald Trump took office, it has been claimed Jones communicates
with the President through aides, something which Chief of Staff John
Kelly had reportedly tried to block. In June 2017,
journalist and commentator
Bill Moyers wrote that Trump and Jones
explicitly "operate as a tag team".
Television shows and interviews
In January 2013, Jones was invited to speak on Piers Morgan's show
after promoting an online petition to deport Morgan because of his
support of gun control laws. The interview turned into "a
one-person shoutfest, as Jones riffed about guns, oppressive
government, the flag, his ancestors' role in Texan independence, and
what flag Morgan would have on his tights if they wrestled." The
event drew widespread coverage, and according to The Huffington
Post, Morgan and others such as
Glenn Beck "agreed that Jones was a
terrible spokesman for gun rights". Jones's appearance on the
show was a top trending Twitter topic the following morning.
On June 9, 2013, Jones appeared as a guest on the BBC's television
show Sunday Politics, during a discussion about conspiracy theories
Bilderberg Group meetings with presenter Andrew Neil
and journalist David Aaronovitch. A critic of such theories,
Aaronovitch implied that, since Jones had not been killed for exposing
conspiracies, they either do not exist or that Jones is a part of them
himself. Jones began shouting and interrupting, and
Andrew Neil ended
the interview, describing Jones as "an idiot" and "the worst
person I've ever interviewed". According to Neil on Twitter,
Jones was still shouting until he knew that he was off-air.
Jones has three children with ex-wife Kelly Jones. The couple divorced
in 2015. In 2017, Kelly sought sole or joint custody of their children
due to Alex's behavior. She claimed "he's not a stable person" and
"I'm concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a
member of Congress" (Adam Schiff). Alex's attorney responded by
claiming that "he's playing a character" and describing him as a
"performance artist". In court, Jones denied playing a
character and he called his show "the most bona fide, hard-core, real
McCoy thing there is, and everybody knows it." The court awarded
Kelly the power to decide where their children live.
His son, Rex Jones, has worked for Infowars, receiving media attention
for a video which was critical of gun control and BuzzFeed News.
Jones has credited Rex for convincing him to support
Donald Trump as a
presidential candidate, in what
New Matilda described as a
"surprisingly touching confession".
