And then proves it.
Alex Jones of Infowars is being sued by several parents of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre for spreading conspiracy theories claiming that the massacre was staged using actors. He also claimed that the children who died “never existed”.
In a deposition posted to YouTube, Jones defends himself by claiming that “a form of psychosis” brought on by the stressful nature of his job caused him to spread lies and unsubstantiated conspiracy theories. Jones promised that he would no longer spread conspiracy theories without confirming them.
However, in his broadcast on Monday, he spread another unconfirmed conspiracy theory about Sandy Hook. Jones argued that a Sandy Hook father who died from an apparent suicide was actually murdered in order to build the legal case against himself.
