The Alex Jones Trial Is About So Much More Than Sandy Hook

As much fun as it’s been to watch ultra-conservative Infowars repeatedly fall on his face during his defamation trial, the implications of his and his lawyers’ spectacular failure are so much greater than that cathartic joy. Evidence uncovered as part of the defamation lawsuit is now reportedly being sought by law enforcement—including the January 6 committee—and could be the means of proving another link between former President Donald Trump and the organized insurrectionists who attacked the capitol in 2021.

For the past 10 years, Jones has emotionally tortured the parents of the murdered Sandy Hook children by spreading the false conspiracy theory on his Infowars YouTube channel that the 2012 elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, was a hoax. Jones’s fans and followers subsequently stalked, harassed, and threatened the Sandy Hook parents, a uniquely cruel hobby that Jones seemingly encouraged by continuing to promote the lie.
