Alex Post Facto

“Jurors ordered conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Wednesday to pay nearly $1 billion to Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims’ relatives and an FBI agent, who said he turned their loss and trauma into years of torment by promoting the lie that the rampage was a hoax.” Let’s hope this really happens and Jones and other creeps like him end up penniless and platformless.

+ Jones is the most terrible perpetrator of lies in an era of liars, and yet, unsurprisingly, he has plenty of fans in high places. WaPo: How the right built up Alex Jones — even long after his Sandy Hook comments.

+ A thread worth your time: “My name is Erica, I am the daughter of Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung, the principal of sandy hook school — and as I was testifying about the rape threats that were sent to me because of Alex Jones’ lies, he was on the steps of the courthouse holding a press conference spreading his hate and further pushing his dangerous agenda.” (A billion is an undercharge.)
