James Patrick Anthony "Jimmy" Dore (born 1965) is an American comedian, political commentator and conspiracy theorist.[1] He is the eponymous host of The Jimmy Dore Show and co-host of Aggressive Progressives (with Steve Oh) on The Young Turks network. As of August 8, 2017, his YouTube channel for The Jimmy Dore Show has over 254,000 subscribers and over 88 million pageviews.[2] He also has over 98,000 followers on Twitter.[3]

General madness[edit]

Dore has entertained, supported or enabled many bullshit claims. This has resulted in Dore losing a portion of his audience, who feel he has stepped over the line in some cases.[4][5] Highlights include:

  • He has also promoted fake stories relating to Hillary Clinton such as that Google manipulated search results to favor her,[6][7] and he wrongly speculated that she has Parkinson's disease.[8][9][10][note 1] He also presented unsubstantiated rumours as if they were factual, including that Clinton started the birther movement in 2008,[11][12][13] and that she wanted to murder Julian Assange with a drone (yes, Dore really believed this).[14][15]
  • He has described Snopes as "completely worthless" and "Democratic propaganda."[16]
  • He seemed to feel "investigative journalist" James O'Keefe's CNN undercover videos help prove that the mainstream media has gone dangerously overboard in its zeal to undermine Trump.[17][18][19]
  • A December 2014 video on Dore's YouTube channel showed that he does not agree with the current scientific consensus on genetically modified food, because of course. Mark Thompson, who was the voice actor for Dore's video, stated that Monsanto has been "genetically modifying Americans for over a century."[20] Earlier, in November 2013, Dore supported the pseudoscientific claim that GMOs cause cancer.[21] Later the same month, Dore acknowledged that studies do not support the claim that GMOs cause cancer, but said that he still hates them.[22]

Other controversies[edit]

  • In July 2016, at the Republican National Convention, Dore was filmed spitting his drink in the face of Alex Jones after Jones crashed The Young Turks' live convention coverage.[23][note 2]
  • After it became clear that Bernie Sanders would not be the Democratic nominee, Dore remained staunchly anti-Clinton and strongly advocated against voting for her in the presidential election.[24][25][26] He even released a video where he asserted that a Donald Trump presidency would be better for progressives than a Clinton presidency.[note 3][27] Ben MankiewiczWikipedia's W.svg of The Young Turks was strongly critical of Dore's position in a heated on-air exchange.[28] Sam SederWikipedia's W.svg was also critical of the flawed reasoning behind Dore's position.[29]
  • Dore believes that the Clinton campaign invented the Trump/Russia story to cover their failures.[30] He has described the idea that Trump colluded with Russia as "propaganda".[31]
  • While the police in the United States are certainly not above criticism, Dore has made generalisations about police officers that are hyperbolic and inflammatory. He has said that all cops are criminals,[32] people who become cops never do it for the right reasons,[33] and that heads of police unions are worse than any ISIS terrorist.[34] Along with these generalisations, Dore's views on the police are occasionally conspiratorial. In November 2014, Dore endorsed the conspiracy theory that police in Ferguson, in a false flag operation, deliberately started fires in order to blame the crowd.[35]

Conspiracy theories[edit]

As a guest on a YouTube show called Conspiracy Queries in November 2014, Dore said that "conspiracy theorist" is "such an empty, meaningless term."[36] Dore uses all the tactics of the average, run-of-the-mill conspiracy theorist, such as saying that you should not believe anyone from the government,[37] you should "stop listening to the assholes on mainstream news media",[38][39][40] and he has information that you won't hear on "mainstream news."[40] Dore believes the debunked[41] claim that "the term conspiracy theorist was invented by the CIA after the JFK assassination."[42][43]


Why would you need to shame people who question the government's view of what happened on 9/11? So that's what makes me suspect. They call them truthers. They name them so you can dismiss them. As soon as you ask a question about 9/11 they go "oh, you're a truther."
Alex Jones Jimmy Dore[44]

In a January 2013 video, Dore revealed that he believes 9/11 conspiracy theories:

I believe in conspiracies. So, Gulf of TonkinWikipedia's W.svg, am I a conspiracy theorist if I think that the government used that as a false flag operation to get us into Vietnam, or is that a fact? Building 7Wikipedia's W.svg. Now who you gonna believe? The government that lied us into a war or your lying eyes? Building 7 was demolished by somebody. It didn't fall down because of a fire. But if I say that, that makes me a "conspiracy theorist." I think the term conspiracy theorist has an undue amount of negativity attached to it.[1]

In May 2013, as a guest on Ari Shaffir'sWikipedia's W.svg podcast Skeptic Tank, he doubled down and elaborated on his views about 9/11 and Building 7:

I think that when Building 7 went down, somebody was directly involved in that.

So a person willing to start a war on a lie wouldn't also be willing to let three thousand people get killed to start that war? That doesn't make any sense. He's gonna start a war that kills-- how many American soldiers have been killed? Four or five thousand, right? But they wouldn't let four or five thousand be killed in America? So that logic doesn't make sense. All I know is that Building 7 did not come down because a plane hit another building next to it.

They have videotape of police and the firemen saying "get back, this building's gonna go." The guy who owned that building, they interviewed him. He tells the story of "we made the decision to pull it, to pull the building." He says "pull it" which means we're gonna implode it. That's another term for implode.[45]

He refused to back down on Twitter:

fishandpeas: @jimmy_dore I'm a great fan, but the evidence for building 7 controlled explosion is as scientifically compelling as global warming denial
Dore: @fishandpeas glad you like my comedy, you shouldn't be so trusting of war criminals.
fishandpeas: @jimmy_dore Me and Noam.
Dore: @fishandpeas p.s. global warming analogy needs work.[46]
Sorenzo4: @dpakman @Jimmy_Dore The explaination[sic] of Building 7 fall is very plausible. I think people who believe otherwise just WANT to believe that.
Dore: @Sorenzo4 who are you going to believe, the government or your lying eyes? #bridgeForSale #UShouldJumpOnIT
Sorenzo4: @jimmy_dore I don't see why they'd fake a building collapse after just taking out two skyscrapers. I'm not defending Cheney. HE'd do it.
Dore: @Sorenzo4 I would be more skeptical than u r being.
Sorenzo4: @jimmy_dore I'm perfectly sceptical of the government. Maybe YOU need to be more sceptical?
Dore: @Sorenzo4 I'm not sure we are using that word the same, assume gov is lying and work back from there.[47]

Dore made similar comments about 9/11 in 2014:

They say "you don't believe in a God?" and I say "I don't know what is out there. I know what isn't out there. I know there isn't an invisible man in the sky, like the Bible tells us, who gives a shit about my penis." I know that isn't happening. You know what I mean? It's like the same thing with when they talk about 9/11. I'll get in trouble here, but people say, "you think that George Bush blew up the towers?" and I go "I don't know what happened. I know what didn't happen. What didn't happen is what the government said happened." That did not happen the way they said.[48]
What’s funny to me is how people discredit the 9/11 people who don’t buy the government’s story. I don’t think anybody buys the government’s story, right? Do we? The stuff that we know about George Bush and Dick Cheney is way worse than what the 9/11 truthers are saying in the first place. So why would that be crazy? We know they started a war illegally, we know they ordered war crimes to cover it up, and now the torture report comes out and says there’s[sic] way more brutal than we ever knew. So the stuff that we know about them is worse than if they would have allowed 9/11 to happen in the first place.[49]


See the main article on this topic: Syria

Dore has entertained numerous conspiracies relating to the Syrian Civil War.[note 4] According to Dore:

Everything you're being told about Syria is a lie. Everything. Fucking everything. The White Helmets are fucking liars. It's all a lie.[50]

Since he does not trust the mainstream media, Dore uses numerous unreliable sources of information about Syria. For example, he described RT contributor[51][52][53] and conspiracy theorist[54][note 5] Eva Bartlett as an "independent Canadian journalist"[37][55] even though she openly says she is biased in favor of the Syrian regime.[53] Dore says Bartlett is a "real journalist" who is "willing to tell the truth" and is "reporting facts" about Syria.[55][37][56] He has interviewed Bartlett on The Jimmy Dore Show.[56]

Bartlett's conspiratorial claims about Syria include that footage from the White HelmetsWikipedia's W.svg (the search and rescue group that she considers to be undercover terrorists[57][58][note 6]) contains children who have been recycled in different reports,[59] and that the media manufactured a story about a hospital being bombed that she claims never happened.[60] She also claims that the "corporate media",[61] United Nations,[62] and human rights groups such as Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and Médecins Sans FrontièresWikipedia's W.svg[63][64][65][66][37] are all conveniently lying about what is happening in Syria. Bartlett's claims have been widely discredited and debunked.[53][67][68][69][70][71][72][73][74][75][76][77]

Bartlett is not the only unreliable source Dore has cited. He has used fellow conspiracy theorist SyrianGirlPartisan as a source.[78] He has cited the conspiratorial, Russian propaganda outlet RT[79][80] (and has defended them as a reliable source[81]). He repeated the conspiracy theory that the war is actually about a pipeline.[82][83][84][37] His source for this claim was the conspiracy-pseudoscience website Ecowatch.[85][86]

Dore believes that there have been multiple false flag attacks during the Syrian Civil War, including the Khan Shaykhun chemical attackWikipedia's W.svg in April 2017.[40][87]

There was also gas attacks. So there was two big gas attacks. The first one Barack Obama threatened to bomb Syria. Remember, they stopped because there was an agreement between Russia, Syria and the United States to get rid of all of Assad’s chemical weapons. That was their agreement. John Kerry kind of got hoodwinked into that agreement. So they did that. They got rid of all his chemical weapons, even though it was a false flag. The second one, they did another false flag where they said "oh, it was Assad gassing his own people" which he wasn’t because he was winning the war. ISIS was just hanging on barely and their only hope was to draw the United States into the Syrian conflict so they did another false flag gas attack.[88]

He believes the attacks have been proven to be false flags:

Dore: By the way, the Syrian war is complete bullshit. Those gas attacks now have been completely debunked. I didn't believe them the first time.
Joe Rogan: So what happened during those gas attacks?
Dore: So, that's called a false flag. So what happens is they wanted the United States to come in on their side to bomb Assad, to overthrow him. And so what they would do is they would do a gas attack on their own people and then blame it on Assad and then...
Rogan: This has been proven?
Dore: Yes.
Rogan: That they did it?
Dore: Yes.[89]

Unsurprisingly, Dore has been proven wrong. In October 2017, investigations from the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria found that Syrian government forces were responsible for the April 2017 chemical attack.[90][91] After the UN's investigation, Dore admitted he was wrong doubled down, blaming the CIA for "false flag attacks" in Syria:

So you don't think that the CIA is still doing this exact same stuff today? You don't think that's what they're doing in Syria? Remember when they did those false flags in Syria? The chemical attacks, those were false flag attacks. Assad did not do those attacks.[92]

In February 2018, Dore alleged that U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim MattisWikipedia's W.svg admitted there was no evidence Assad used poison gas on his people, citing an article from Newsweek.[93][94] However, Mattis was not claiming there was no evidence that Assad was responsible for the Khan Shaykhun attack. Mattis was actually referring to recent allegations of Sarin use after the Khan Shaykhun attack.[95][96][97][98] Mattis' actual view about the Khan Shaykhun attack is that "there is no doubt the Syrian regime is responsible for the decision to attack and for the attack itself."[99]

Despite Dore's strong opinions on Syria, in reality he is incredibly ignorant about the country. For example, in one video he admitted to not knowing if Bashar al-Assad was the President or King of Syria.[100] Additionally, in a video intended to mock Gary Johnson's ignorance about Syria, Dore incorrectly described Aleppo as "Syria's capitol" in the description of the video.[101]

Murder of Seth Rich[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Murder of Seth Rich

Dore was sympathetic to theories that Seth Rich's murder was connected to the Democratic National Committee leaks.[102] His first video about Rich was originally titled "DNC Staffer Seth Rich’s Murder Tied To WikiLeaks", but a question mark was later added.[103] He made the following comments during the video:

To me, this is red flaggy all over the place.[104]
A spokesman for Rich's family on Tuesday said Wheeler was not authorized to speak for the family and called assertions Seth Rich sent emails to WikiLeaks unsubstantiated. And he said even if purported emails were to surface, it would not necessarily mean Rich had helped [WikiLeaks]. Remember all that? You remember the guy who said that? His name is Bauman and we found out who he is. He's a regular Democratic PR spokesperson. Isn't that weird that they would have a PR guy from the Democrats [...] working for that family and he's the one saying-- Remember that? That's crazy. That is crazy that he's saying that. Remember he went on to say "even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of..." He's already discounting evidence they haven't found yet. "Even if we find evidence, it doesn't mean anything." That's a Democratic PR guy saying that. Why would they have a Democratic PR guy saying that if this investigation, if it really wasn't, if this guy really wasn't connected to the freaking WikiLeaks? Why would he be discounting information that hasn't even shown up yet? How can you discredit evidence that you haven't gathered yet? That's what he's doing and that guy's a Democratic PR spokesperson. This is frickin' fishy as all get out, baby. There is more to come on this, pal. There is way more to come on this.[105]

The next day, he made another video about Seth Rich:

There's a lot of weird questions about this. Is there something more to this? It certainly seems like there's something more to this.[106]

After one of the sources for the story was exposed as a fraud, Dore refused to back down, claiming that it didn't prove the story wrong.

I'm not discounting that Seth Rich doesn't have something to do with the DNC-WikiLeaks, 'cause there's a lot of red flags. There are a lot of questions around this story right now. [...] There is something to this story though. I don't want to discount it like "oh, you're crazy if you think there's something more to this story." There probably is something more to this story.[107]

Dore later suggested that right-wingers were "actually onto something" when they covered the Seth Rich story:

How about all those people who gave a shit just for covering an actual news story, the Seth Rich story, all those people who gave a shit like we're some kind of conspiracy theorist. And what has MSNBC been doing? Pushing a fucking conspiracy non-stop for over a year. Where's the Washington Post article about that? Oh, they only write articles about right-wingers who are actually onto something.[108]

JFK assassination[edit]

See the main article on this topic: John F. Kennedy assassination conspiracy theory

Dore does not believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone:

Dore: Do you believe in the single bullet theory? Which is--
Cara Santa Maria: Oh, God.
Dore: So if you believe that Oswald acted alone then you believe the government line but if you question that, you're a "conspiracy theorist". And that's the problem. They throw "conspiracy theorist" which are legitimate conspiracy theories with crazy ones like "oh, so you're a birther". No, I'm not a birther. That's crazy, but I do not believe the government line of the single bullet theory.[109]
Dore: I think it's horrible when people would point a finger at you and say "what are you, a conspiracy nut?" because you think something's fishy.
Ari Shaffir: It has those connotations.
Dore: Yes.
Shaffir: When you question it you're a conspiracy nut.
Dore: Yes. It's OK to question. I don't think Oswald acted alone. I don't think Building 7 fell-- Does that make me crazy? Am I a mental case?[110]
Dore: Remember what John F. Kennedy said. John F. Kennedy said he wanted to smash the CIA into a thousand pieces. Now he's dead. "Oh my God, that's a conspiracy." Do you see the conspiracies these motherfuckers cook up every day? That's what they do. They do terror on their own country. They lie to our own country. That's what the CIA does. Anybody, anything?
Ron Placone: I've never heard anybody in my life that buys the official JFK story. Like even someone like the most reserved people I know that really don't think outside the box much, even they're like "oh yeah, JFK, of course we don't know what really went down there."
Dore: Right.
Placone: Of course we don't know the truth there.
Dore: Come on.
Placone: Like, nobody buys--
Dore: You don't think it was like Bill Hicks said. It was that one guy and he was hanging out at the book depository by his toes.
Placone: Yeah, yeah. Well birds helped him. They flew him over, and then he...
Dore: And there was the one bullet. Why does anybody believe the government? Why does anybody believe the government about anything?[111]

2017 Las Vegas shooting[edit]

See the main article on this topic: 2017 Las Vegas shooting

In October 2017, Dore was a speaker at the "Tin Foil Hat Comedy Night".[112] Dore and Brendon WalshWikipedia's W.svg discussed conspiracy theories relating to the 2017 Las Vegas shooting:

Dore: I saw one picture of his room, I didn't see any shell casings. There should be a fucking pile of shell casings about four feet high. He shot sixty bullets a second for fucking ten minutes, are you kidding me?[113]
Walsh: There's a cab driver in the Mandalay Bay turnaround and you hear gunfire far away then you hear it right near the nightclub. And it's like that sounds like two different places.

Dore: Two totally different guns! Two totally different placements! I've heard that.

Walsh: But you're fucking psycho if—

Dore: If you say that you're mental. See, here's what's happening lately. You can have an open murder investigation, which is what this is, and you ask questions about it, you're immediately shouted down. That's not supposed to happen during an investigation. They haven't even concluded what the fucking real investigation was supposed to say. So that's suspicious, exactly what you say, super suspicious. Why are they taking down YouTube videos that question the official narrative? If those YouTube videos are wrong, who gives a fuck?[114]


In a comedy sketch with alt-right character "Saint Himmler", Dore said he doesn't believe in Pizzagate.[115] Despite that Dore does not believe Pizzagate is real, he has enabled the views of Pizzagaters. At the Tin Foil Hat Comedy Night, after Eddie BravoWikipedia's W.svg brought up Pizzagate and suggested that everyone at the top is fucking babies, Dore replied "there's something to what he's saying" and "you're not far off":

Bravo: The glue that's holding all the corruption together is all these old motherfuckers at the top are fucking babies. That's what's going on. It's not a joke but that's actually what's going on. The pedogate, the Pizzagate, all that shit, that's why people are being corrupt because they're all in on it. Everyone at the top, they're all fucking babies.
Dore: There's something to what he's saying, because I did a little research and our defence contracting companies will often procure young people, young boys and girls, for sex parties around the world. This is not news, by the way, to the Pentagon or the CIA. They know this. This is how they do business over there. So you're not far off.[116]

See also[edit]

  • Second-option bias – Dore relies heavily on this to make his arguments look sound.
  • Jill Stein - Dore endorsed Stein during her 2016 presidential bid and has used his show to promote her platform.[117][118] He unironically believed that she could have won the 2016 election.[119] Unsurprisingly, she, too, shares the same conspiratorial viewpoints as Dore. They're also both apologists for Fidel Castro.[120][121]
  • Glenn Beck - His Tea Party counterpart. Both have spread anti-Clinton conspiracies and fake news stories during the 2016 election. However unlike Dore, Beck was (at least until inauguration) against a Trump presidency.

    In 2013, Barack Obama wanted to bomb Syria because they said Assad gassed his own people [...] and they were sure of it by the way. Again, and this is the last one too. And then there was another one, that's when Trump bombed Syria. They said there was another gas attack by Assad. Neither of them was by Assad. [...] And so now, this is from February 8th. Newsweek: "Mattis admits there was no evidence Assad used poison gas on his people".

  95. Newsweek Engages in Easily Debunkable Syria Chemical Weapon Trutherism with the Help of Ian Wilkie. Bellingcat. February 9, 2018.
    It’s clear from the full transcript of the press conference that Mattis is referring to allegations of Sarin use since the US attack on Shayrat airbase, which means Wilkie either didn’t read the transcript, read it and misunderstood it, or read it and decided to claim something it didn’t say. More disturbingly still is Newsweek published the article without first doing basic fact checking on the central premise of the article.
  96. Mattis warns Syria not to use chemical weapons again. Politico. February 2, 2018.

    The Syrian regime should think carefully before using chemical weapons again, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis warned Friday, in an apparent reference to last year’s U.S. military strike on a regime airfield in retaliation for a previous chemical attack.
    “You’ve all seen how we reacted to that,” Mattis said, adding that the Syrian regime “would be ill-advised” to launch more chemical attacks, as some recent reports from inside the country suggest.
    Mattis acknowledged those reports and said the Pentagon was looking for evidence to confirm them. “Groups on the ground, NGOs, fighters have said" that the regime has used sarin gas in recent attacks, he said, but “we do not have evidence.”

  97. News Transcript: Media Availability by Secretary Mattis at the Pentagon. February 2, 2018.

    Mattis: We are more -- even more concerned about the possibility of sarin use, the likelihood of sarin use, and we're looking for the evidence. And so that's about all the more I can say about it right now, but we are on the record, and you all have seen how we reacted to that, so they'd be ill-advised to go back to violating the chemical convention.
    Q: Just make sure I heard you correctly, you're saying you think it's likely they have used it and you're looking for the evidence? Is that what you said?
    Mattis: That's -- we think that they did not carry out what they said they would do back when -- in the previous administration, when they were caught using it. Obviously they didn't, 'cause they used it again during our administration.
    And that gives us a lot of reason to suspect them. And now we have other reports from the battlefield from people who claim it's been used.
    We do not have evidence of it. But we're not refuting them; we're looking for evidence of it. Since clearly we are using -- we are dealing with the Assad regime that has used denial and deceit to hide their outlaw actions, okay?

    Saint Himmler: The Democrat party pedophile rings that I and others on the alt-right have helped expose.

    Dore: You mean Pizzagate?

    Saint Himmler: You say that like it's not a real thing.

    Dore: Yeah, it's not a real thing at all. That there's a pizza joint in DC where Hillary Clinton ran a pedophile ring out of? Yeah, it's not a real thing.

    Saint Himmler: Oh, I see. Despite all the evidence to the contrary? Maybe you are also a pedo in addition to a cuck yourself.

    Dore: So because I think Pizzagate is BS I must myself be a pedophile?
