    As if his trouble in court and on social media was not enough, Jones was forced to pay $15,000 to settle a copyright infringement lawsuitinvolving a cartoon frog named Pepe. The payment, agreed to on Monday, settled a complaint that Jones sold a poster of President Donald Trump and the frog without the permission of the frog’s creator.

    I... .... well... yeah, no. I'm done, thanks.

    Alex Jones is a crisis actor in his own trial.

    From the article :

    The Texas cases made headlines in March when Jones was interviewed under oath by the parents’ lawyers and said his conspiracy extremism was “like a form of psychosis.”

    From the embedded link in the above quote :

    Jones blamed his mental state on “the trauma of the media and the corporations lying so much, then everything begins — you don’t trust anything anymore, kind of like a child whose parents lie to them over and over again, well, pretty soon they don’t know what reality is.”

    And then... :

    “I still think that there was a man in the woods in camo ... and just a lot of experts I’ve talked to, including retired FBI agents and other people and people high up in the Central Intelligence Agency, have told me that there is a cover-up in Sandy Hook,” Jones said.

    So just to be clear - Jones says the saturation of fake news causes a psychosis-like state in him, which in turn causes him to develop these fake conspiracy theories, which he then doubles down on as real, even though he acknowledges that they are the result of a psychosis-like state of mind.

    And the president listens to this man.

    I am fucking done.

    Not particularly surprising, honestly.

    “Simply put, there is no evidence to support the claim that the Jones defendants knowingly market falsehoods for financial gain.”

    If this is the best his lawyers can do, he is so fucked it isn't even funny.

    Wait, he withheld important facts and information to push a narrative? I'm shocked. Shocked I tell you. That almost never happens these days. /s

    It's pretty bad when your best defense is to claim that you're suffering psychosis.

    It's pretty fucked up that a guy who 99.9% of people pass off a nutjob can do so much damage to peoples lives.

    Work in law here. Withholding discovery is a huge no no.

    The harassment and grief the Sandy Hook families have endured because of Alex Jones and his disgusting followers is unfathomable.

    Some of the parents have committed suicide. Some of the parents cannot visit their children's graves. Most of them have had to move.

    I hope they take Alex Jones for every fucking penny he's worth.

    Edit:

    Let's not forget that Alex Jones is also a traitor parroting Russian propaganda at every turn.

    He is a ruthless charlatan who makes the world a worse place. Sound familiar?

    Swimming in the conspiracy Waters in the 2000s after 9/11 and during the Iraq Wars has made me immune to conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones. I use to watch his show. I took everything he said with a grain of salt but I found it interesting. Always thought he was full of shit though. Watching him flip during the Obama election was very interesting. He went from, 9/11 was an inside job and the Neo cons were demonizing Muslims to justify war in the Middle East too, Islam is a death cult and wants to kill all infidels and Obama secretly is a Muslim. In the 2000s all police were thugs itching to shoot someone or crack their head open. After Obama all police were innocent and black lives matter was a terrorist group trying to demonize our police force. He's not crazy. He's a scumbag that goes where the money is. He realized there was a lot more money to be made convincing people to fear the new scary black president that might be a secret Muslim.

    Jones was my first introduction to fake news as a young adult who was relatively sheltered. I thought his site was completely legitimate, as I assumed all news sites were. I seriously entertained the idea that the victims and their parents were actors because of the shit Jones helped peddle.

    I’m pretty damned happy to see him smacked around by social media and courts now and I’m incredibly thankful I didn’t fall for his bullshit for long. Nobody should be getting their news/world views from outlandish conspiracy pushing frauds like him.

    I'm happy I live in a world where I can chose to ignore Alex Jones. But the fact that he profits off the misery of these families puts him at a new level of scumbaggery

    In another life this guy would be a fantastic voice actor.
