ROGER STONE (INFOWARS): 2016 was the first year in which the mainstream monopoly lost their stranglehold on American political discourse. It's only through a robust and vibrant alternative media developed on the internet that Trump was able to win. Now they want to put the toothpaste back in the tube. It's particularly important to me because in all honesty, I need the format -- the forum of Infowars, of Fox, and other places to conduct my defense in the fact that Robert Mueller has got a target on my back, and despite the fact that he can find no Russian collusion, no Wikileaks collaboration, no nonsense with John Podesta -- I am under the gun in a full force federal investigation poking into my personal finances, my personal life, my business life, my political life. I need a forum to defend myself, that's one of the main reasons why I think Infowars is being banned. And this ban will go further, if it is Alex Jones today, Laura, it will be you and Sean Hannity --
LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): On no, I agree.
STONE: -- and Tucker Carlson, and all these other patriots that I admire next.
INGRAHAM: I did my whole Angle on this last night. This is not about one person, this is about freedom and our ability to access information from the people, sources, sites that we trust. Other people might not trust them or like them, but we do.
STONE: No, you're exactly right. So I am convinced that Alex Jones who is, let's face it, very controversial and very colorful, is a test case. And if they are successful in strangling his First Amendment rights, is Rush Limbaugh next, or Mike Savage, or any of the other patriots that I admire?
