He actually has some hilarious faces.
He's a goober too. I think I said it earlier in this thread, but I think he's going to lose some of the lawsuits and end up bankrupt, but still stay afloat and keep his business.

Also like I said, I like the guy, but he can also be annoying as hell and I can't stand another 4 hours of him. Hopefully him getting his "empire" stripped away and having to rebuild will teach him to be more responsible when he rebuilds, because I agree with the lawyer, Alex Jones was reckless and irresponsible with his "assertions of fact" on his shows (which admittedly I haven't seen but have read some in-context excerpts).

I have no idea what the actual claims are in the lawsuits, but he looks terrible in this deposition.

I've been deposed before - I flipped to the 1 hour mark of the second one to see the end.

"You're the victim in this aren't you Mr. Jones?" <wanking motion>

If I was the firm planning on releasing this to the public to further nail Jones, I would had a different lawyer depose him. Maybe someone who didn't sound like a millenia goober snickering all the time and somone who's more of a joe jamil - monsanto "I'm about to f* you up" type.
According to their website, he’s a real up and comer!

Jones literally claimed that he has a form of psychosis which leads him to believe that everything is staged.

Which... might actually be true?

Coincidentally (or not), This American Life two weeks ago was about a Sandy Hook father, Lenny Ponzer, who was harrassed for years by Jones and his gross followers, and who tried to fight back. And the reporter then interviewed Jones about it. Worth a listen for the podcast-inclined.

I don't see how this deposition is not going to fare well in court for either side.

These video clips really are amateur hour stuff. Was half this deposition just created for youtube?

And the atty looks like he's setting AJ up with the clips when he's coy on the dates and times of edited clips, but then gets all solemn and gives a clear description before playing another clip. Like he expects the edits to get tossed, but wants to get it right on the others so they are admitted.

And AJ playing ignorant and passing the buck on every question is likely not a new tactic and I'd guess he's going to get his ass handed to him in court if he keeps that approach. How reckless and cavalier do you want to look?

It's fun to point and laugh at Alex Jones and I am about the biggest First Amendment fundamentalist around, but I really do hope he gets his ass nailed to the wall. Jones claimed for months that one of the girls killed at Sandy Hook was still alive. Her dad killed himself this week.

This Times article talks about the case, and about Wolfgang Halbig, who is an even bigger POS than Jones:

Mr. Pozner at first tried to engage Mr. Halbig, asking to speak with him in a 2014 email. He received a response, viewed by The Times, from Kelley Watt, one of Mr. Halbig’s fellow hoaxers. “Wolfgang does not wish to speak with you unless you exhume Noah’s body and prove to the world you lost your son.”

Dumb. I watched the deposition, and it was stupid as hell. It got obvious it wasn’t a real deposition before the end of the first video. Pure stunt.

@Duke Silver - it’s pretty obvious why the young lawyer is on the case. NoT a real case. No way they are taking that **** serious.

And I was told in this very thread he wasn’t a train wreck or a bad guy :rolleyes:

It's a curious strategy to say you can't comment on a video of yourself unless you watch the entire four hour broadcast. That ain't gonna fly.

Alex Jones, when turning over material for the trial, apparently included child pornography which was sent to InfoWars email addresses

So now the FBI has to ascertain whether or not he knowingly possessed the images

Alex Jones, the bastion of stability he is, accused Sandy Hook families of framing him and “living off the dead kids of Sandy Hook”

Roger Stone’s a regular on Jones’ show; he should ask Stone to contact Wikileaks to find out how the images were planted & who planted them

I think this is called "crash and burn."

This is obviously BS and doesn't pass the smell test. Does anyone actually believe that he knowingly possessed emails of child porn and sent them to opposing lawyers?

That by-line just shows how little the media thinks of people that read the news.

NYT said the FBI cleared him weeks ago. Lawyer A said it was just a ploy by Lawyer B. Lawyer B said Lawyer A was lazy and should have found it himself. More slapping of each other.

This is just a silly sensationalism bit.
