Chobani asked Alex Jones to retract a statement he made about the Chobani company supporting migrant rapists. He said no so they took him to court.
Jones changed his mind and settled the case.
It hasn’t been a great year for Jones. A lot of his website ads were targeted and pulled from his website. He’s turned to conspiracists Paul Joseph Watson and Mike Cernovich using their twitter followings to boost his audience as a type of cartel. He lost custody of his children recently through a public court case. He had to apologize, scrub and retract statements about the Pizzagate conspiracy. And now he’s retracting this statement.

The far-right conspiracy theorist agreed Wednesday to settle a defamation lawsuit filed against him by Greek yogurt manufacturer Chobani. The key component of the settlement agreement required him to retract inflammatory comments about refugees and the company he made on his Infowars broadcast last month.
“During the week of April 10, 2017, certain statements were made on the Infowars, Twitter feed and YouTube channel regarding Chobani LLC that I now understand to be wrong. The tweets and video have now been retracted, and will not be re-posted,” Jones said. “On behalf of Infowars, I regret that we mischaracterized Chobani, its employees and the people of Twin Falls, Idaho, the way we did.”
It marks the latest blow to Jones, who in March apologized and issued a retraction to a Washington, D.C.-based pizzeria for his broadcast’s role in pushing a false story about a child sex ring that involved Hillary Clinton.
Either way, Jones has built up an audience of like-minded individuals that need to believe in conspiracies to get through the day. Something has to be wrong and someone has to have leaked is the audience he plays to on a regular basis. They find a togetherness in his dramatic attempts to push the envelope on truth.
Oh, his audience is vast. He’s worked on it for years. They won’t be going anywhere, anytime soon. Do you think this type of reporting is healthy? Do you believe Jones might want to take some time off to gather himself? Share your opinions, concerns below in the comment section.
