InfoWars is a fake news and conspiracy theory website, leaning towards the far-right, established in 1999 by Alex Jones. Most of its content and shows are filmed in an undisclosed location near Austin, Texas. Despite it being known as a conspiracy theory website, it still receives over 10 million monthly visits, making it stronger than some mainstream news websites. The website has been notorious for publishing stories that have led to the harassment of many of the people they’ve featured. Its owner has also had a share of controversies, such as spreading conspiracies about the US orchestrating the 9/11 attacks, and the Sandy Hook shootings.
Work with InfoWars
While the company itself has received a lot of negative attention, Lee Ann joined the website due to a shared interest in conspiracies and astrology, and became the interviewer and co-host of a program called “Nightly News”. In 2015, she became involved in a scandal alongside InfoWars owner Jones with information surfacing that Jones wife had already filed for divorce two years prior. It was the same year that Lee Ann was hired and many believed that she is the reason for their split. A lot of critics also put down the website for hiring her, as they believed she was only someone that could add sex appeal to their reports.
Information from the divorce papers stated that Jones had an affair with a female co-worker that everyone in his company knew of. The following year, Jones and Lee Ann came forward denouncing the rumors, stating that they did not have a relationship. Despite that, she still took a break from work to help quell the negative attention she’d received. She returned and worked for another year with the company, but then left to move to Florida to take care of her grandmother. Since then, she has gone back to writing blog posts, and set up her own website once more.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, not much is known in terms of McAdoo’s romantic relationships. Aside from her supposed affair with Alex Jones, she has not shared anything about having a relationship. She loves Chihuahua dogs and has owned at least three during her lifetime. Many of her critics believe that Lee Ann McAdoo is not her real name, as she’s been known to use numerous aliases in the past, apparently to help hide information about herself from the public.
