As a source for news, how credible is infowars?

If you think it is not credible, can you please provide an example which illustrates it being untrustworthy (i.e. provide a claim made by alex jones and a refutation?)

    In a word, no. Alex Jones is America's leading conspiracy theorist, according to New York Magazine. – Kennah Dec 27 '15 at 1:33

    @SirJective, your comment rather belongs to the question body. Consider editing the question to explain your rationale in more details (except the rude words, of course :). – bytebuster Dec 27 '15 at 12:21

    @SirJective there are already plenty of sites out there for debunking alex jones. Also, anyone that believes alex jones will invariably believe anything attempting to debunk him is also a conspiracy. – user1530 Dec 29 '15 at 4:10

Alex Jones claims Pepsi uses baby fetuses as flavouring.

Interpret that as you like.

    @blip - Coca-Cola uses adult fetuses, as opposed to the baby fetuses that Pepsi uses. – PoloHoleSet Sep 6 '17 at 19:10
