Jones began his career in the 1990s running a live public-access cable television program, later switching to radio. He has been at the center of many controversies: he promoted conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting.[14] In other conspiracy theories, Jones has accused the US government of planning the Oklahoma City bombing,[15] the September 11 attacks,[16] and falsifying details regarding the 1969 Moon landing.[17] He has claimed that several governments and big businesses have colluded to create a “New World Order” through “manufactured economic crises, sophisticated surveillance tech and—above all—inside-job terror attacks that fuel exploitable hysteria”.[18] He aggressively opposed gun control in a debate with Piers Morgan.[19][16]

Jones has described himself as a conservativepaleoconservative and libertarian, terms he uses interchangeably.[20][21] Others describe him as conservative, right-wingalt-right,[22] and far-right.[23][24] New York magazine has described Jones as “America’s leading conspiracy theorist”,[25] and the Southern Poverty Law Center describes him as “the most prolific conspiracy theorist in contemporary America”.[26] Asked about such labels, Jones said he is “proud to be listed as a thought criminal against Big Brother“.[25]
