Working with InfoWars
InfoWars was founded in 1999 under Free Speech Systems LLC. The website produces talk shows and other types of content which are filmed in an undisclosed location on the outskirts of Austin, said to be located in an industrial area. The website is widely popular, receiving approximately 10 million in monthly visits, making it a strong competitor against mainstream news websites. The site has been notorious for its publication of fake news, which has led to the harassment of some people made the subject of their stories. They advocated conspiracy theories within the US Government, which include the alleged orchestration of the 9/11 attacks as well as the Sandy Hook shootings.
Due to their controversial content, they have faced retractions as a result of legal challenges, which in turn would lead to the removal of their material. The owner of the website, Alex Jones, has also been accused of sexual harassment in the workplace, and has been suspended or banned from numerous social media websites, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. The website earns revenue from the sale of products pitched during their shows, which often promote products their website sells online.

She is highly interested in astrology and conspiracy theories as evident from her reports.

Jones and McAdoo even went public and denied the allegations, but the pressure was still enough for her to go on hiatus from work. She returned to InfoWars sometime in 2017, but later decided to leave the company.
