Alex Jones’s Attorneys Argue That No Reasonable Person Would Believe What He Says


In April, the ever-ascending media empire that is Alex Jones’s Infowars was served with its most serious threat. Several lawsuits—including one by the parents of a child killed during the Sandy Hook school massacre in Connecticut, and one by a man inaccurately identified by Infowars as the suspect in the Parkland shooting earlier this year—were filed in Travis County, each alleging defamation by Jones and his company. The possibility that this could derail Jones’s enterprise was real: defamation cases against media companies are hard for plaintiffs to win, but Infowars is no ordinary media company, and the charges reflected practices far outside of traditional journalism…

Now, he’s once more facing a legal challenge—and his attorneys are once more tasked with arguing that Jones doesn’t really mean what he says on his broadcasts, while also doing their best to maintain his credibility….

This is a questionable legal strategy, it seems to me.   He’s being shepherded into censorship.   No one has time to listen to everything he says, but if he has broadcast actual fake news (as opposed to political opinions I happen to disagree with) I haven’t heard it and I doubt very much that he’s being hired to do it, unlike most of the MSM.   And his extensively documented exposure of official lies like 9/11, the OKC bombing and the ongoing electronic rigging of US elections makes him a hero in my book.   Search this site if you doubt the factual basis of the last sentence.   You could start here, for instance:

Of course the alternative strategy would be to attempt to convince multiple courts of the wholesale deception going on, which would be very difficult given the wealth and power of those who profit from it.

  1. Very good background piece from the Texas Monthly. Here is a useful viewpoint from a man whose own career was upended by legitimate inquiries into the Sandy Hook affair, James Tracy

    His concern is also the attacks on 1st Amendment free speech and the dangerous precedent a court verdict could present. Tracy is not as generous to Alex Jones as Richard is, especially regarding the formulation of the defense strategy, but presents some detail suggesting Zionist influence in the proceedings, including a look at the relationship between Leonard Pozner and Richard Gutjahr.

    Just more grist for the mill, it never ends
