Despite Jones’ claim that the reason for the apology is because “we think it is the right thing to do,” it may have more to do with the perceived threat of legal action from Alefantis, who wrote to Jones in February asking for several retractions. The Washington Post‘s Paul Farhi explains:
“Under Texas law, the Austin-based Jones had to retract or apologize for the stories by Friday — one full month after receiving Alefantis’s letter — to avoid exposing InfoWars to punitive damages in a libel suit.”
It’s rare for Jones to make a public apology. The Infowars website has a correction section. There are only two entries, of which the Comet apology is one.
REALLY A Jones? Really?

Brock is still alive, but… Hmm:
Media Matters founder David Brock has suffered a heart attack but is expected to make a “swift recovery,” a senior aide said Wednesday.
“David Brock suffered a heart attack while working in the Washington DC office early Tuesday,” Bradley Beychok, Brock’s chief of staff, said in a statement.
“He was quickly transported to a local hospital, received prompt medical treatment, and we are looking forward to a swift recovery.”
“We thank everyone for their well wishes, and especially want to thank the wonderful doctors and staff who treated David. We kindly ask for privacy as he recovers,” the statement added.
Brock, 54, a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign, founded the nonprofit liberal media watchdog publication Media Matters for America in 2004.
