Some plaintiffs hugged in the courtroom after the verdict was read. Jones wasn't there, but live video from the court played on a split screen on his Infowars show.

"Hey, folks, don't go buying big homes," he said.

The trial featured tearful testimony from parents and siblings of the victims, who told about how they were threatened and harassed for years by people who believed the lies told on Jones' show.

  1. Indication of how important the judicial system is becoming. Militarizing the judiciary to destroy individuals and companies is a dangerous president. Lawyers will especially become more wealthy and powerful. Makes the elite more powerful, those universities which pour out lawyers, the lawyers and the politicians who make the laws and not producing guidelines. Then if it appears democrats will produce more judges who will use the judiciary this way the judiciary becomes even more politicized.

    1. @Jeremy Raymond no it won’t. We will have to wait and see though. I don’t care for the guy he is ignorant, but he can say whatever he wants.

    1. @Jermany 84 no, I’m just not a fool like you. Go obediently agree with corporate media owned by billionaires and pretend to be informed.

  2. The people commenting about no free speech have no clue how u.s. law works smh. You know you had to take American Gov. to graduate high school, right?

  3. that’s ridiculous. Alex Jones doesn’t have that kind of money and he will never be able to pay it. what will this accomplish? nothing.

  4. Who was fined or punished when the 2008 financial crisis began with cheap credit and lax lending standards that fueled a housing bubble. When the bubble burst, the banks were left holding trillions of dollars of worthless investments in subprime mortgages. The Great Recession that followed cost many their jobs, their savings, and their homes?
