Faking it? InfoWars' Alex Jones says he had a "form of psychosis" when spreading Sandy Hook conspiracies

Mod: Maybe pro-Trump fake news guru Alex Jones had a mental bone spur? Whatever the cause of his hideous idiocy, I hope the Sandy Hook parents take him for all he's got.

InfoWars' Alex Jones says he had a "form of psychosis" when spreading Sandy Hook conspiracies (CBS News link): InfoWars host Alex Jones, who is being sued by several parents of Sandy Hook victims, said in a deposition released Friday that he now believes the massacre was not a hoax. In the deposition posted on YouTube, Jones said he believes 26 people were killed in the 2012 shooting, but that "a form of psychosis" made him believe it was staged.


Jones is facing several lawsuits following he repeatedly claimed massacre in Newtown, Connecticut  — which left 20 children and six adults dead — was a hoax and the victims involved were lying. For years, he has suggested the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary was staged with paid "actors." He has also claimed the children who died never actually existed.

Mark Bankston represents Sandy Hook parent Scarlett Lewis, whose son Jesse Lewis died at Sandy Hook and is seeking damages for false accusations and targeted harassment. According to his law firm's website, "The complaint charges that the defendants took part in an ongoing campaign to mock Ms. Lewis and other parents of children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting, claiming the shooting was a 'false flag' conspiracy hoax and accusing them of a sinister conspiracy to lie about the circumstances of the tragedy."

During the three-hour deposition, Jones refused to apologize and attempted to minimize the damage he caused in perpetuating Sandy Hook conspiracies. He blamed his "psychosis" brought on by the stressful nature of his job, but he did not say he had been formerly diagnosed with the disorder.

"And I, myself, have almost had like a form of psychosis back in the past where I basically thought everything was staged, even though I'm now learning a lot of times things aren't staged," Jones said. "So I think as a pundit, someone giving an opinion, that, you know, my opinions have been wrong, but they were never wrong consciously to hurt people."

Jones also blamed the media for his actions and said that questioning public events is an "essential part of the First Amendment in America.

"Well, I'm just saying that the trauma of the media and the corporations lying so much, then everything begins -- you don't trust anything anymore, kind of like a child whose parents lie to them over and over again, well, pretty soon they don't know what reality is," he said. Jones told Bankson that he would no longer lie about Sandy Hook in the future, and that he would not share conspiracy theories without confirming them.

However, during an InfoWars broadcast Monday, Jones argued that Jeremy Richman, a Sandy Hook father who died by apparent suicide and had been a plaintiff in a defamation suit against Jones, had potentially been murdered to further build a case against Jones.

  4. I sometimes wonder if these clown shows practice in front of mirror with their (djt) hero pictures decorating that room? Worst yet imagine them doing this including (djt) practicing their bombastic hate filled speeches in the nude? Yep nothing worse than a want-ta-be trying to out do the reflection in the mirrors? Thus we have the room of whores?

  13. Listen to this podcast from This American Life, "Beware the Jabberwock". It's about Alex Jones' harassment of Sandy Hook dad, Lenny Posner. They also talk to Alex Jones' high school classmates and teacher. Beat up a classmate, fractured his skull, wreaked havoc in the school. Wow, very revealing! Please listen and share, this man is a monster and has been his whole life!

  14. Drive it home. If tRump was innocent, the Mueller report would have been released. That is the only talking point that needs to be said. If tRump is innocent there is no excuse for hiding the report from members of Congress that are allowed to access classified materials. End of story.

  17. Hell just froze over.. Super MAGA aquaintance will never vote for Trump again or Republican. When your child goes to Special Olympics.. and they were going to pull the rug out from under them.. Yesterday, in Trump budget proposal.. and Today Trump is trying to sound like he is going to fund Special Olympics all by himself.. never done before..and DeVos is backtracking quicker than my beagle.. I guess that this was the thing that finally lifted the shades from their eyes.. I doubt if my acquaintance will become a Democrat.. they have gotten all the judges they want.. I guess that bridge has been crossed ..they are staying home if someone does not challenge Trump from the right..

    1. Why should the tax payers have to subsidize Special Olympics with $18 million? They should get jobs and pay for it themselves.

      We have more important things to spend public money on, like paying big private corporate farms not to grow certain crops, maintaining a huge military presence in the Middle East so private corporations can safely transport oil, giving developers tax breaks so they risk less of their own money on private projects, subsidizing domestic fracking so private companies can extract more oil from public lands, and giving the 1% gigantic tax breaks to alleviate the burdens they face when paying for their eighth or ninth home, fourth yacht, third ranch, and second Gulfstream.

  18. Why should the tax payers of the USA have to subsidize the stupid actions of ignorant RNC,GOP and the republican party They are a bunch of crooks anyway! I suggest once a crooked republican has been voted out of office they should LOSE ALL retirement perks and NO retirement salaries either! They have stolen enough all ready.

    1. Hit him where it hurts...in the wallet. Now he is facing financial ruin, he is making excuses for his fake stories that hurt so many families where children and teachers were murdered. He is sick, but not in the way it should excuse what he said and spread to the very stupid who believe him. He's a filthy liar and deserves to be ruined.
