Alex Jones Learns The Cost Of His Lies

by News Update

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones must pay $4.1 million to parents of a Sandy Hook school massacre victim in defamation case, the jury rules. Scarlett Lewis and Neil Heslin, whose son Jesse was killed in the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting, had sought $150 million for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The Infowars host repeatedly called the massacre a hoax.

If you don't like it then don't listen. America is dead.

i-mm-o res August 5, 2022 - 3:36 PM

Alex Jones has a deep voice and a shallow brain.

Sherlock Basel August 5, 2022 - 3:46 PM

You're finished matey boy.

Aaron Grandison August 5, 2022 - 3:53 PM

Will the attorney for the Family be representing the black.woman and her mother that Trumd said had altered the Georgia coter count?

kozmiczian August 5, 2022 - 3:54 PM

Jones looks sick . . . won't live long.

Au3r777 August 5, 2022 - 3:57 PM

But pushing WMD that were actually lies was fine? lol so much for land of "the free speech" when you can't voice your opinion. Persecuting people for voicing an opinion since you can indirectly harm someone, now opens the door to any speech can be classed that way. And the tool of every despotic regime. Yet US is the only nation (barring ukr) that votes against Anti Nazi resolution in the name of that precious 1A. What a farce

Commodore RuhRoh Raggy August 5, 2022 - 4:05 PM

Soo…

If Alex Jones makes $800,000 a day…

That $4 Mil is a drop in the bucket I guess 🤷🏻‍♂️

Chiefqueef August 5, 2022 - 4:08 PM

They’re are abunch of pot belly goblins running around with green skin I’ve seen them!

K U August 5, 2022 - 4:09 PM

If lying is against the law, all Major Media corporations, Big Government and Pharma need to be sent to Federal Prison for years of misguided information; to include the Covid-Scam

D'shawn Cherry August 5, 2022 - 4:13 PM

They should have given them their full request. But I'm glad they got something.

llortaton August 5, 2022 - 4:14 PM

The plaintiff attorney is all smiles in the press release but in the court was practically in tears raging shortly after the verdict. His payday has not come yet, and it never will. I love to watch a lawyer work for peanuts. They have been milking this sandy hook thing for nearly 10 years with no end in sight. What a humiliating "victory". 🤣😂

Alex Jones will survive unscathed as always.

James Smith August 5, 2022 - 4:16 PM

Fake court

Scott Clayton August 5, 2022 - 4:20 PM

If our government wasn't so corrupt with the Clintons and bush's. I would be more upset with Alex than I am. Questions of false flag events are should be asked.

Ryan’s Ark August 5, 2022 - 4:20 PM

While I don’t agree with what he said, this country is in a major freedom of speech crisis, reguarless of what he said , he aloud to say it or was until now

Mr. Relámpago Negro August 5, 2022 - 4:20 PM

Jone's attorney offered a total of $8.00 to the victims' families. There is no cesspool putrid enough in which to keep these folks floating. I hope this settlement is just the beginning of the economic end of AJ. This has nothing to do with free speech. This is pure hate and I cannot imagine what these parents felt losing their little ones and then having this human POS trounce on the victims' graves.

panthergod August 5, 2022 - 4:24 PM

Alex Jones has FAR more credibility than the proven Nazis at NBC…

RedJupiter223 August 5, 2022 - 4:25 PM

What’s the cost of your lies NBC?

Twiggy Phat August 5, 2022 - 4:28 PM

Lol chump change

Jan Heinbokel August 5, 2022 - 4:30 PM

Finally

Hank Skorpio August 5, 2022 - 4:35 PM

4 million….. thats pathetic

WhiteNorth August 5, 2022 - 4:35 PM

This is exactly why I don’t trust main stream media. “Just yesterday he did an about face” “he perpetuated these lies for years”

Here’s a link, copy paste it. It’s a clip of Alex Jones on The Joe Rogan Experience. First 3 minutes, in his own words he says what came to pass and says he believes Parkland happened, he says he believes Sandy Hook happened and was real.

This isn’t a sudden turn of events, he’s printed retracting, he broadcast retraction. He has been on other places giving retractions. Yet you say to the public that he only just did it yesterday. A gross misrepresentation of facts.

It's about time Alex Jones was made accountable

Hillbilly beer dranker August 5, 2022 - 4:46 PM

So this means I can sue those peeple who claim the election was not rigged?

Jon Teateo August 5, 2022 - 5:09 PM

He was right the government killed there kids for gun control

Jon Teateo August 5, 2022 - 5:10 PM

Take the 8 dollars it’s all he has. Now you get nothing!!!!

I Own Me - You Own You August 5, 2022 - 5:11 PM

The news media would be bankrupt if we could sue them for all of their lies. As scary as it is, Alex Jones is more truthful than the news media, which is why he has an audience.

MrSirius369 August 5, 2022 - 5:13 PM

Hey!? Like Cnn who have to pay in court for there’s lies… yeah shure.

animeXcaso August 5, 2022 - 5:19 PM

Not enough

Adjunct Prof Colleen B Kelly - Retired August 5, 2022 - 5:33 PM

"Intimate" messages with Roger Stone. Ahhhhhh hilarious.

Angel Lomeli August 5, 2022 - 5:37 PM

I wanna see all the mainstream media pay fines for the lines as well!!!!!!!!!!!!

A son called Joshua August 5, 2022 - 5:37 PM

The establishment HATES Alex with a sinister hatred that is on another level.
He exposed bohemian Grove for what it is.
He exposed the Bildaberg Conference for what it is…

That's what this is all about.

If you think for 1 second that a court in Texas cares about the children of sandy hook, you are extremely naive and need a bubble to live in to protect you from reality.
Is the famous words of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas…
This is just a high tech lynching for being disobedient

Nothing Less & Nothing More.

The greatest Man in history, had no servants, and yet they called Him Master. He had no degree, and yet they called Him Teacher. He had no medicine, and yet He was called the Healer. He had no armies, and yet kings feared him. He won no military battles, and yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, and yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a grave, and He is alive today. And His name is Jesus Christ in Greek, and in Hebrew Messiah Masía (Messiah)

SAY THE MIRACLE Repentance PRAYER daily and it will change your life! Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you now and humbly ask for your forgiveness. LORD, I confess that I'm a sinner and I've broken your Holy Law. I realize that the penalty for sin is death. I believe that JESUS CHRIST suffered and died on the Cross to take the punishment for ALL of my sins. I believe JESUS rose from the dead and I accept Him as my personal Savior. From this moment forward I give you my heart and trust you to be the LORD of my life. Please forgive ALL of my sins and send your Spirit to help me do your will. I Love You, Lord Jesus. I Praise You, Jesus. I Thank You, Jesus. I shall follow you every day of my life.

I thank you for your great love and accept your gift of eternal life, and I pray these things in JESUS name, Amen . Say this prayer faithfully, no matter what you feel, when you come to the point where you sincerely mean each word, with all your heart, something good spiritually will happen to you. You will experience Jesus, and HE will change your whole life in a very special way. You will see. A single saint fights back, and a thousand demons cry in agony. And you are that saint.

Jesus Will Never Leave Nor Forsake You

''Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass.” Ps 37:3-5

Jesus Christ came into this world to reach those who feel that nobody cares. The Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in Him. The Lord Jesus Christ does care and He is reaching the lonely and the desperate, the confused and the hurt, the depressed and the disillusioned. Jesus Christ is reaching out to you.

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Rom 5:8

As we turn away from our sin and turn to Christ we find forgiveness and freedom.

Jesus Christ is a Friend to the friendless.

He is a Helper to the helpless.

He gives freedom to the addicts.

He loves the unloved.

He accepts the outcasts.

He changes the unchangeable.

He forgives the unforgivable.

He accomplishes the impossible.

He saves sinners.

He seeks the lost.

He gives direction to the aimless.

He gives hope to the disillusioned.

He gives Truth to the confused.

He gives joy to the depressed.

He gives purpose to the purposeless.

He gives hope to the hopeless.

He redeems and He renews.

He touches and transforms.

He answers prayer.

He works miracles before our eyes.

Sandy Hook was a psyops anyone with a brain knows that

D Roman August 5, 2022 - 6:50 PM

Bwahaha ! This trial and ridiculous verdict will backfire badly on the left. The first amendment is under assault. Just think if every National news outlet had to pay $ millions for inaccurate reporting, there would be no media left. Alex Jones did not invent the Sandy Hook conspiracy theory. Jones was targeted because of the success of his Infowars broadcast.
