Since founding InfoWars in 1999, Mr. Jones has drawn a vast audience with bizarre theories, including that American terrorist attacks and mass shootings are “inside jobs,” and that the government lines juice boxes with hormones that make children gay.
“Alex Jones has built an opportunistic empire on the backs of families trying to pick up the pieces from shattering loss,” Joshua Koskoff, a partner at Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder of Bridgeport, Conn., the firm representing Sandy Hook families in the Connecticut lawsuits, said in a statement.
Mr. Jones did not respond to requests for comment.
Last week a District Court judge in Travis County, Tex., set Aug. 1 as a hearing date for the first of the Texas lawsuits. That one was filed in April by the parents of Noah Pozner, who was 6 when he was killed at Sandy Hook.
[Editor’s note: But, as we have explained again and again, Noah Pozner cannot have been killed at Sandy Hook because “Noah Pozner” was a fiction made up out of photographs of Michael Vabner when he was a child, as Kelley Watt was the first to surmise. Consider:
The first obligation of the prosecution in this case, it would appear, is to prove that anyone died at Sandy Hook. We have a prima facie proof that the children were fabricated out of photos of older kids when they were younger, which means that Alex Jones was right to imply that Sandy Hook was “a hoax” and that the parents are themselves guilty of fraud.]
Mark Bankston of Farrar & Ball, the Houston-based firm representing the Sandy Hook parents in the Texas lawsuits, said in an email that the firm was eager to “finally hold Mr. Jones accountable for his malicious lies,” adding, “There are no more excuses for Mr. Jones to hide behind. Now he must answer to the law.”
[Editor’s note: Absolutely, someone ought to answer to the law. The New York Times has been publishing nonsense about Sandy Hook since 15 December 2012, when it has to know better. The fake parents have split between $27-130,000,000 in donations from sympathetic but gullible Americans. That’s more than $1,000,000 per family for faking the loss of a child. And they are perpetrating frauds upon the Court by pretending to be “Sandy Hook survivors”.]
