This is the bit that Alex Jones just demolished.
On Wednesday Jones claimed in an online video that Infowars had been offered press credentials by the new administration.
"Here's the deal, I know I get White House credentials, we've already been offered them, we're going to get them, but I've just got to spend the money to send somebody there," Jones said. "I want to make sure it's even worth it."
Hope Hicks, the White House's director of strategic communications, denied the claim on Thursday. "This is not true," she told CNN's Jake Tapper.
The White House Correspondents' Association referred requests for comment to the White House.
Although there is nothing stopping an outlet like Infowars from getting credentialed, and obscure and fringe outlets have received White House credentials in the past, it still would have been a sign of Jones' growing relevance.
