Bundy Tells Alex Jones NY Times Took Him Out of Context, Calls for Retraction

Cliven Bundy was on Alex Jones‘ radio show defending himself today, and told Jones that The New York Times took his remarks wondering if black people were better off under slavery out of context.

Jones asked if the quotes are accurate. Bundy said, “No, that’s not exactly what I’m saying.” He told Jones in passing that he never talked about “picking cotton,” and when Jones picked up on that, Bundy confirmed he did not once say anything about picking cotton, like the Times reported.

Jones asked Bundy if he wants a retraction from the Times then. Bundy replied, “I would appreciate that, I think they should do that. They’re basically making me a racist type, but I’m not racist.”
