Alex Jones says Sandy Hook was real on day two of testimony

During controversial cross-examination, Infowars moderator Alex Jones’ claim that he was caught up in a lie about the Sandy Hook shooting was refuted, and he conceded that the massacre was “100% real.”

Jones, who has repeatedly implied the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax, said Wednesday that he was “baited” several times into speaking out about the incident and tried to correct himself and apologize to the victims, but his words were twisted by what he called “corporate media.” He said he now believes the attack happened.

“Especially since I met the parents,” he said on Wednesday. “It’s 100% real.”

The conspiracy theorist, whose trial is taking place in Austin, where his media company is based, said he “got into this situation where I was basically typecast as somebody running around talking about Sandy Hook making money off Sandy Hook who became obsessed with Sandy Hook when it was less than 1/10 percent of what we covered for those six years.”

“It was frustrating at the time,” Jones said of the years following the Sandy Hook shooting. “It’s infinite now.”

Jones is being sued by Scarlett Lewis and Neil Heslin, whose son Jesse was among the 20 children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012. Lewis and Heslin, both of whom testified Tuesday, have ordered Jones to pay $150 million for defamation and willful infliction of emotional distress. They are among several Sandy Hook families that have filed lawsuits against Jones, arguing that his claims that the attack was a hoax led to years of abuse from his supporters.

Jones has portrayed the lawsuit as an attack on his First Amendment rights.

During Wednesday’s cross-examination, an attorney for Heslin and Lewis quickly tried to establish a pattern, with Jones calling other mass shootings “false flags,” including at a high school in Parkland, Fla., in 2018 and a concert in Las Vegas in before.

The attorney, Mark Bankston, also drilled holes into previous testimonies from Jones about a number of things, including Jones’ claims that he complied with the discovery that he had no text messages about Sandy Hook on his phone, that he did not mention it has been on the show for more than a year since July 2015, that he doesn’t use email and that his media company is struggling financially.

“Do you know what perjury is?” Bankston asked during an interview.

Jones is his defense team’s only witness. Closing arguments in the case are expected on Wednesday afternoon.
