We at the Chronicle try to make this space an Alex Jones -free zone, but report the news we must. Austin's homegrown conspiracy clown, now an international embarrassment, had a bad day in court last week. Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis ruled on Friday that plaintiffs in a defamation lawsuit against Jones, alleging a "campaign of harassment" following the Sandy Hook school shooting, could access the financial records of Jones and Infowars , the unaccountably popular multimedia platform from which he proliferates his nonsense — including the theory that Sandy Hook was a "false flag" hoax designed to gin up support for stricter gun laws. Note that 20 children under the age of 7, along with seven adults and the shooter, died in the massacre. The ruling could give the plaintiffs — relatives of children and adults killed in the massacre and an FBI agent who responded to the shooting — access to the internal communications and marketing strategies at Infowars, a step the plaintiffs' lawyers described as necessary to understand the planning and coordination that went into perpetuating the Sandy Hook conspiracy theory.
Alex Jones - Wikipedia
By Bruce Haring. Internet personality and radio host Alex Jones has to hand over emails and other materials that will shed light on his past claims that the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting was the work of so-called crisis actors. Connecticut State Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis made the ruling as she presides over a defamation case filed by the families of seven of the 26 children and adult staff killed in the shooting. Jones, a huge conspiracy theorist, has claimed that the incident was staged and used role players. Jones has seen his influence wane in the last year, as he has been banned from several social media sites, notably Twitter, and has had his PayPal account and other services stripped.

Andrew Neil calls Alex Jones an idiot in Sunday Politics clash
The BBC's Sunday Politics show is generally a rather sedate affair, heavy on serious interviews and light on controversy. But viewers were treated to a highly charged confrontation between host Andrew Neil and US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, which saw the latter labelled the worst person to be interviewed on the show and an idiot. The shock jock had been invited on the show alongside journalist David Aaronovitch to discuss the secretive Bilderberg conference, which has been taking place near Watford over the past week.
Subscriber Account active since. Mark D. It was nearly three years ago that I brought lawsuits against Alex Jones on behalf of Sandy Hook families who were targeted by his malicious false broadcasts and campaign of personal harassment. A year later, I sat across the table from Jones during a deposition where he tried to tell me, under oath, that some form of "psychosis" was responsible for his actions. But back in , those lawsuits, and Jones' increasingly erratic behavior in their wake, set in motion a series of events which led most social media platforms to ban his accounts.
