School massacre denied: conspiracy theorist Alex Jones admits error

Alex Jones makes good money spreading conspiracy theories, including that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting was staged. For years, the families of the victims suffered from Jones' supporters. In court, he now admits a change of heart.

US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has come under pressure at a trial in Texas over his lies about the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre. "It's one hundred percent real," Jones said Wednesday (local time) of the bloodbath, as video footage from the Austin courtroom showed. Jones has previously claimed that actors staged the killing spree. He described this in court as "irresponsible".

A 20-year-old shot dead 20 school children and six teachers in Newtown, Connecticut, in December 2012. Parents of a six-year-old victim had sued the right-wing radio host over his claims. You had previously described the impact of the 48-year-old's claims.

They are demanding $150 million in compensation from Jones and his companies, which include the online platform Infowars. The conspiracy theorist's attorney argued the plaintiffs had failed to prove his client's words actually caused harm. Jones has repeatedly spread various conspiracy theories in the past and claimed, for example, that the US government was involved in the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York.

In 2017, a Jones supporter was jailed for making death threats to the father of a child killed in the Sandy Hook massacre.
