Alex Jones defamation case reaching bizarre conclusion

Washington Correspondent

In his prime, Alex Jones was the most listened to far-right conspiracy theorist in the USA.

His pro-gun, anti-liberal rantings on his Info Wars platform won him an audience of millions and and a huge income to match.

But after spending years claiming that the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax and that the 20 six and seven-year-old victims were child actors, their parents decided to retaliate.

And they did it in the courts – suing him for defamation and asking for one hundred and fifty million dollars in damages.
