InfoWars founder and host Alex Jones, recently was interviewed by two local news outlets, about the lawsuits being brought against him by parents of the children who died in the Sandy Hook massacre.
According to Jones, much of what he has said about Sandy Hook was taken out of context as he was simply reporting what the feeling of the internet was at the time – some internet users had found it convenient that a school shooting would happen right around the time former President Barack Obama was pushing gun control.
Alex Jones has been correct many times on his reporting, he may have had Sandy Hook wrong, but was there any malicious intent behind it?
During the interview, Jones stated that this was a free speech issue and that people have spent so much time demonizing him about past comments made about Sandy Hook, that people have forgotten the person who actually carried out the crime – Adam Lanza.
Lanza shot and killed 26 people at the Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14 2012. Of the victims, 20 children, between the ages of 6 and 7 were killed by Lanza. It devastated the local area and shocked people across the country and the world.
Jones is currently in Connecticut for questioning and stated that this is a “war against the 1st Amendment.”
