The Wall Street Journal had previously claimed that Alex Jones was encouraging violence prior to the storming of the US Capitol on Jan. 6. They have now rescinded that claim.

The WSJ recently published the retraction in this article, where they talk about the circumstances surrounding the ensuing riot and storming of the Capitol grounds, which left five people dead.

Jones was actually seen on video that day doing the exact opposite, shouting on his megaphone and telling people to move around the Capitol and to leave police alone, warning them not to "make that the story", according to the Epoch Times.

Alex Jones is the firebrand founder of the Info Wars website (plus the corresponding podcast), and has been around since 1999, never far from some sort of controversy.

Jones has been banned from YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter  and other popular social media sites.

Jones and his followers still allege the removals were as prejudicial and unfair as was the recent WSJ article.
