Infowars host pays price for Sandy Hook lies

Conspiracy theorist and human-body-in-search-of-a-soul Alex Jones is learning, at long last, there’s a price for lying. There’s a price for being a monster, for leveraging the pain of others to make a buck peddling deceit.

A Texas jury on Friday ordered the host of the notoriously noxious Infowars website to pay $45.2 million in punitive damages to the parents of a child killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. That’s on top of more than $4 million in compensatory damages ordered by the same jury Thursday.
