Sandy Hook Trial Ends in Bad News for Alex Jones

Alex Jone has made himself quite the career out of a need to say wild and sometimes jarring things on the air.

The InfoWars host rose to prominence after a genuinely skilled bit of investigative reporting in which he actually infiltrated Bohemian Grove – a secret “boy’s club” for world leaders whose meetings include some strange, occult-ish ceremonies. 

But, since then, Jones has ventured off into some strange territory, and has made several claims that were downright offensive to public sensibilities.  One such claim even prompted a lawsuit against Jones from parents of children slain during the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting after the host suggested that the event may not have been what it seemed.

Now, after a lengthy litigation, Jones’ wallet is about to get a whole lot lighter.

ALEX JONES, THE CONSPIRACY THEORIST WHO HOSTS THE RIGHT-WING COMMENTARY WEBSITE INFOWARS, WAS FOUND LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE IN TWO LAWSUITS FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY HIS CLAIMS SURROUNDING THE 2012 SANDY HOOK SCHOOL MASS SHOOTING, ACCORDING TO COURT DOCUMENTS RELEASED THURSDAY.

JUDGE MAYA GUERRA GAMBLE ISSUED DEFAULT JUDGMENTS ON MONDAY AGAINST JONES AND HIS OUTLET FOR NOT COMPLYING WITH COURT ORDERS TO PROVIDE INFORMATION FOR THE LAWSUITS BROUGHT AGAINST HIM BY THE PARENTS OF TWO CHILDREN KILLED IN THE SHOOTING.

The rulings, which were first reported by the Huffington Post, effectively mean that Jones lost the cases by default. A jury will convene to ascertain how much he will owe the plaintiffs, the report said.

There seems to be some confusion about the financial standing of Jones’ InfoWars network, with the host seemingly pleading with his audience to keep them afloat at times, and in other moments declaring that they were nigh unstoppable.
