Aug 5 (Reuters) - U.S. conspiracy theorist Alex Jones must pay the parents of a 6-year-old boy killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre $45.2 million in punitive damages - on top of $4.1 million in compensatory damages already awarded - for falsely claiming the shooting was a hoax, a Texas jury decided on Friday.
He will be in bankruptcy court on monday, reopen infowars once the dust settles, and back to making the big bucks in no time.
They should have just ignored him, in making him out to be the boogeyman, they made him way more powerful.
Good, should have been more TBH. Alex Jones is the most mainstream of mainstream right wing political pundits out there, he made over $800,000 a day during CPAC and was instrumental in getting Trump elected in the first place, and he also helped orchestrate the deadly January 6th radical right terrorist attack on our nation’s capital.
The January 6th committee is now going to subpoena Alex Jones text messages after his legal team accidentally leaked him to the Sandy Hook victims’ lawyers. You love to fuckin see it!
This will forever remain one of the finest moments in the history of televised Court cases:
