InfoWars ( is a highly influential and popular American conspiracy media platform.

Launched by Alex Jones in 1999, the extreme right site receives more than 10 million visits per month (SimilarWeb data) and generates approximately several tens of millions of dollars of income per year. 

Sometimes described as a kind of TV shopping show specialized in conspiracy theories, InfoWars is devoted to spreading multiple false narratives including: the 9/11 terror attacks; the Sandy Hook school shooting; Freemasonry; vaccines; fluoride in water, mind control; Zionism, secret societies chemtrails;  the Illuminati; intelligence services; Pizzagate; the “New World Order”; the Democrats; Barack Obama (accused of lying about his true identity); Michelle Obama (accused of being a man); George Soros; terrorism; the existence of bases on the planet Mars hosting child sex slaves; Bill Gates; the United Nations, accused of seeking to reduce the world population by 80%. The diverse set of conspiracy theories are spread without any factual basis or by producing reliable sources and evidence.

InfoWars also has a flourishing online store where you can buy toothpaste that is supposed to “kill” the Covid-19 virus.

In addition to its founder and main host Alex Jones, the site's contributors include Paul Joseph Watson, Jerome Corsi, Owen Shroyer, David Knight and Rob Dew.

The site is often derivative and has reproduced content from several media outlets such as The New York Times, Breitbart, BBC, CNN and BuzzFeed without any prior authorization. Over three years for example, InfoWars copied more than a thousand articles from the Russian media RT.

In August 2018, as part of the lawsuit filed against Alex Jones by families of Sandy Hook massacre victims, InfoWars was banned from Apple, Spotify, Facebook, YouTube and Pinterest platforms, followed by Twitter a month later.

On Monday, December 11, 2023, InfoWars was reinstated on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
