Alex Jones Must Pay Sandy Hook Families $965M in Second Defamation Trial

Alex Jones was ordered to pay $965 million to families of victims of the Sandy Hook massacre by a Connecticut jury on Wednesday — in the second defamation ruling against the conspiracy theorist for his claims that the 2012 mass shooting was a hoax. The far-right Infowars host has repeatedly claimed the shooting was a media fabrication, denying that gunman Adam Lanza slaughtered 26 people at the elementary school and then himself on Dec. 14, 2012.

Alex Jones is an idiot. But the idea that his words caused so much pain to the tune of nearly $1B to these people is ludicrous.
