Charlie Kirk: Media Trying to ‘Bankrupt” Alex Jones

On Wednesday’s edition of The Charlie Kirk Show podcast, Kirk sat down with Alex Jones of InfoWars to discuss the loss in his recent defamation lawsuit filed by parents of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre, which Kirk viewed as “unfair” and “blatantly political”.

“Even mainline reporters interview Charlie Manson,” Jones joked. “I’m the worst person in the world, but people should still want to talk to me. The truth is they want to misrepresent what I’ve said and done. That’s why they don’t want me to ever be live on-air”

Kirk then claimed the media is trying to “bankrupt” Jones by not letting him apologize for the things he’s said in the past, before asking Jones to give his side of the story the media isn’t covering.

“This is their new weaponization of the media,” Jones said. (The Sandy Hook massacre) was a small part of what I cover. I question every major event. I questioned Uvalde. I believe children died in Ulvade, but the head of the state police in Texas and the mayor of Uvalde say there’s a cover up and they’ve been lied to.

“They want to punish people who question things. They want to say ‘Oh, he’s not a populist leader. He’s not a popular person. No, he’s the Sandy Hook man. And so they’ve used that like claiming Trump says all Mexicans are criminals. Trump never said all Mexicans are criminals. He said some very good people come across the border, the very bad people we should screen them.

“So just like they tried to make it ‘Trump hates all Hispanics’, same here. It’s fake news. It’s been total misinfo. Even CNN today had to retract and say ‘Ok, Jones’ cellphone wasn’t given to the other lawyers’. All that stuff was made up. And it’s just next level desperate. So now they’ve got the January 6th Committee to demonize Trump supporters and the American people. Now they’re using Sandy Hook to demonize the independent media. Just like I was de-platformed four years ago and was patient zero for that, now I’m patient zero for all of the new censorship that’s taking place.”

Kirk began the show by admitting several people had told him to avoid an interview with the controversial pundit. Jones, who was ordered to pay millions in damages to the families of the Sandy Hook victims, is an often discredited conspiracy theorist.

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.
