“I tend to believe that children probably did die there,” said Infowars’ Alex Jones to NBC’s Megyn Kelly in an an interview aired on Sunday Night.
“But then you look at all the evidence on the other side, I can see how other people believe nobody died there,” added Jones. “Some of it looks like it’s real.”
Sunday Night ran a 2014 clip of Jones describing the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass murder as “fake.” Kelly quoted additional comments from Jones regarding the attack, in which the Infowars frontman described the massacre as a “total hoax.”
Jones claimed that the “mainstream media” has taken him out of context: “I do think there’s some cover-up and [mainstream media] manipulation.”
