'Poetic justice': Coates reacts to Alex Jones courtroom bombshell ctm magazine

CNN’s Laura Coate reacts to a moment in a Texas court where a lawyer for a pair of Sandy Hook parents cross-examined the Infowars founder and fact-checked his answers in real-time.
The jury hearing the case will determine how much Jones will have to pay the parents, Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, who won a default judgement against him earlier this year. An attorney representing Heslin and Lewis has asked the jury to award $150 million in damages.
Jones, who was the sole witness for the defense during the trial, did not fare well Wednesday as he was cross-examined by the plaintiffs’ attorney, Mark Bankston.
In a remarkable moment, Bankston disclosed to Jones and the court that he had recently acquired evidence proving Jones had lied when he claimed during the discovery process that he had never texted about the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting.#alexjones #cnn #cnntonight

    You'll notice they didn't show anything that proves Alex lied… all they show is the lawyer accusing him. Let's see the emails !! 🌜🤯🌛

    CNN chopped off the clip before he explained the MSM causes people to be in a bubble.

  • Barry Lucas on August 4, 2022

    Do you suppose there is enough money to cover the settlement the jury will hand down or will they just have to make up a new number? Like alexillion.

    Infowars is the most blue collar, wait they don’t have collars. In fact, they don’t even wear shirts.

    Insensitive words Hurts so much

  • Zebulon on August 4, 2022

    It´s not just the conspiracy content in Jones´s speaches which is disturbing but also the way he says it. His rants, his threats, his theatrical outbursts of anger. But obviously that is what appeals to his audience, disregarding the damage this does. I would recommend to Americans to reconsider their concept of free speech and the 1st amendment.

    Alex Jones reminds me of a snake oil salesman when it comes to information. Journalism must always be held to account for the evidence and facts and perhaps its responsibility to its profession is to go after the language and accreditation of false actors. When pictures, video , law enforcement agencies' reports, witness testimony, funerals, parents' grief are called a hoax by a narcissist screaming into a microphone … Critical thinking at an all time low. My Dad a blue collar worker born in the 1930s , left school at 15 to work and he would never be swindled by Alex Jones. Of course he lived The Great Depression, he lived the WWII, he witnessed the Holocaust through stories of coworkers and neighbors. Education may be the answer and also getting professional standards as journalists enshrined in a constitution like Doctors, like Nurses, like Teachers is desperately needed at all levels of government and society. There must be a way beyond civil court we can hold pseudo journalists accountable. No grieving parent should have to sue to stop malicious lies. There are media platforms that need to be held account too. Its a big problem and it is threatening our democracies. All the above is my opinion and musings on this vital sociological question: What is truth? How do we recognize it? What is falsehood? How do we recognize it?

  • Bert on August 4, 2022

    What was jones his texts with Trump?????

  • Roy on August 4, 2022

    Unfortunately, the prosection's cross-examining is very poor. You can see he has disdain towards Alex, and it gets the better of him at times. This is a defamation suit, therefore he needs to keep focused on the task at hand, and prove without question and doubt, that Alex Jones inflicted hurt, pain, and suffering, which made their lives a living hell.

  • Adam Cole on August 4, 2022

    What’s the difference between info wars and CNN. What is the difference between Nicolas Sandman and Sandy Hook parents. What is the difference between Alex Jones and Wold Blitzer? Perspective?

  • Vincent Salamatino on August 4, 2022

    Lol the real poetic justice is how Alex Jones turned out to be the one telling the truth all along and CNN is the conspiracy.

  • Adam Cole on August 4, 2022

    CNN nor Info Wars is news. It’s all entertainment.

  • Chris on August 4, 2022

    He will always play himself as a victim.It's his "default" position in life.

    Martha Stewart got 2 years for perjury, not insider trading

  • The Packers Smacker on August 4, 2022

    I loved that "Yes, Mr Jones…" with a sinister laugh 😂

  • Nights Timo on August 4, 2022

    When is CNN going to face the court for spreading treasonous lies about Russian collusion, or calling every person nazi or racist?

  • Funny Man on August 4, 2022

    Hate to tell you Jones, you are the "Sandy Hook Man" and now you were caught committing perjury at your trial and getting caught having done it. Pay back seems to be awaiting you and it is richly deserved.

  • Gnirol Namlerf on August 4, 2022

    Take it back? He had a decade to "take it back," and only now, that he's in scalding water financially, does he decide he has suddenly discovered the truth about the deaths of two dozen people, most of them precious little innocent kids. I wish I could puke on him. But better than that, would indeed be a settlement that truly leaves him in the poorhouse.

  • James O Hara on August 4, 2022

    How long until he goes after the Uvalde victims and their Parents.

  • Sayyed Samedow on August 4, 2022

    CNN is a broken record on repeat. I suggest you do less cocaine

  • Random Dude on August 4, 2022

    Lol it’s not poetic justice. He made a bad call and is living with the consequences. If he had liberal views you’d sweep this under the rug. Stop pretending this is anything other than spite.

  • Charles Brewer on August 4, 2022

    I suspect it may be Alex Jones who is about to find out which planet he is on.
    The sooner and the more painful for him, the better!

  • Rose on August 4, 2022

    I hope Alex Jones is the first of many to get what they deserve. There are many more people who have shows online just like Alex Jones Show sharing the same kind of information and harmful effects that have come out of it.

  • M m on August 4, 2022

    Jones lawyer: I’m tired of having a bar card. What can I do to help the parents while simultaneously sending my client to prison and ensuring unemployment and maybe disbarment for myself?

  • Gerald Thomas on August 4, 2022

    Innocent children are dead in a mass shooting, and Alex Jones is alive and makes money out of this tragedy, says it all about America

  • MrJth937 on August 4, 2022

    I hope that the J6 committee get all the texts from his phone 😲☺️🙈🙉🙊

  • Colbysden. on August 4, 2022

    Alex. Your attorney purposely f—— you

  • Kat Zolita Mason on August 4, 2022

    His lawyers shouldn’t have ‘messed up’ like that- He shouldn’t pay them for this.

  • X Marks on August 4, 2022

    “Sandy Hook Man” to “ Payup Crook Man.”

  • Lyon Smith on August 4, 2022

    Jones should have gotten a competent lawyer. Lol

  • Denise Wilson on August 4, 2022

    Oops, either the Attorney wants a miss trial or he just wants his fee’s and doesn’t like his client.

  • Max K on August 4, 2022

    Just like DJT,laying is in their DNA. We all heard that before. Shame on you AJ

  • Kingofspades1203 on August 4, 2022

    Yawn, how is this even fucking news. No one cares that he said something he felt was true and was wrong about it or isn’t for all we know.

  • Kay Richards on August 4, 2022


  • jeffrey downs on August 4, 2022

    I want to know what his end game was, What could he possibly get out of it.
