InfoWars’ Alex Jones, who has spread the conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax and that the grieving parents are crisis actors, had a deposition in early March with one of the lawyers of a parent suing him.
It did not go well.
According to a HuffPost report, he admitted that he didn’t prepare for the briefing and didn’t know answers to basic questions. He also contradicted himself and refused to fully apologize for the grief he’s caused.
In particular, he would not acknowledge that he caused the parents of the slain children pain with his actions.
“It’s painful that we have to question big public events. I think that’s an essential part of the First Amendment in America,” he said. “And I do not take responsibility for the entire train of things that lawyers and the media have said I’ve done. So I do not take the responsibility. I do not take your indictment or your presumed conviction of me as the villain or the star of Homeland because that’s not who I am. And so I reject it.”
