The Wall Street Journal and the Hill published fake news about Roger Stone in an effort to portray Infowars as a fake news website.
Stone settled a defamation lawsuit on Monday by agreeing to post a retraction of false statements made about Chinese businessman Guo Wengui. Stone obtained the information from former Trump aide Sam Nunberg, which turned out to be inaccurate.
The WSJ and the Hill stories suggest that Stone’s conduct in posting information to Infowars was “irresponsible,” when in fact Stone was talking about him believing Sam Nunberg to be irresponsible.
This is a crucial difference because the smear campaign is being used to further entrench the lie that Infowars is a “fake news” website.

Stone’s full statement appears below;
As I indicated in my settlement agreement I made the terrible mistake of relying on the representations of Sam Nunberg in my reporting on Mr.Kwok. It’s almost as irresponsible as relying on the representations of Randy Credico . I am solely responsible for fulfilling the terms of the settlement
I have retracted one story out of the hundreds I have reported in the two years I have worked as a correspondent at InfoWars .
To be clear the WSJ and the AP misreported my statement. I never said my reporting for InfoWars was “irresponsible”.
