Three unanswered questions about threats and hoaxes on Facebook

Another day, another high-profile outrage spreading virally on Facebook. This time around it’s our frequent subject here Alex Jones, of Infowars, who yesterday went on a rant in which he tiptoed very close to the line of calling for violence against special counsel Robert Mueller. Charlie Warzel has the details in BuzzFeed:

On his Monday afternoon show, Jones issued a prolonged rant against special counsel Robert Mueller, accusing him of raping children and overseeing their rape, and then pantomiming shooting the former FBI director. The show was streamed live on Jones’ personal, verified Facebook page, which has nearly 1.7 million likes.
