Alex Jones Professional Career
He began his career in Austin working on a live call-in public access TV show before transitioning to radio in 1996, hosting “The Final Edition” on KJFK. While running for Congress, Ron Paul was a frequent guest on his show. In 1999, he tied with Shannon Burke for the title of “Best Austin Talk Show Host” as voted on by Austin Chronicle readers. Later that year, he was fired from KJFK for refusing to broaden his topics and making it difficult for the station to sell advertisements. Jones then began broadcasting his show from his home via the internet.
Jones ran for State Representative in Texas House District 48 as a Republican in 2000. He claimed he was running to “be a watchdog from the inside,” but he dropped out after a few weeks. Jones’ radio show was syndicated on approximately 100 stations in 2001.
Jones began to spread a conspiracy theory after the 9/11 attacks, claiming that the Bush administration was behind the attack and that it was an inside job. Several stations then dropped him as the face of the 9/11 “truther” movement. The Genesis Communications Network syndicates “The Alex Jones Show” to over 100 AM and FM stations across the United States. In 2010, it had approximately 2 million weekly listeners.
Alex produced his first documentary film, “America: Destroyed by Design,” in 1998 and has since released approximately 20 additional documentaries. He has also published two books, “9-11: Descent Into Tyranny” in 2002 and “The Answer to 1984 Is 1776” in 2008. Jones is the publisher and director of the InfoWars website, which receives approximately 10 million visitors per month. The website has been labelled as fake news and has been accused of spreading harmful conspiracy theories. The site reportedly generated more than $20 million in revenue per year at its peak.
According to the German magazine Der Spiegel, two-thirds of Jones’ income comes from sales of his own products, which are marketed through the InfoWars website and advertising spots on his show. Supplements, toothpaste, bulletproof vests, and other items are among them. In a 2017 episode of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver stated that Jones spends nearly a quarter of his on-air time promoting products sold on his website, many of which purport to be solutions to medical and economic problems attributed to the conspiracy theories he promotes on his show.
His antics continued during the COVID-19 pandemic, and he was issued a cease and desist order by the Attorney General of New York on March 12, 2020, after claiming without evidence that the products he sold were an effective COVID-19 treatment. In April 2020, the FDA intervened, and Jones was warned that the government could seize and fine him if he continued to sell the products.
