Founder of Infowar’s Alex Jones lost a grueling 10 day trial for custody of his kids according to a Buzzfeed report:
After a grueling 10-day trial, a jury has ruled in favor of Infowars founder and CEO Alex Jones’ ex-wife, Kelly, in the custody of their three children.
The jury, which deliberated for roughly nine and a half hours, ruled Thursday night to give Kelly Jones joint custody with the ability to dictate the residence of the children. Previously she had joint custody with limited, supervised visitation rights with residence dictated by Alex Jones.
It was a defeat for Alex Jones, who watched the verdict with a stoic expression and left promptly after the verdict without talking to reporters. Upon hearing the verdict, Kelly Jones dabbed her eyes with a tissue and hugged her lawyer, Robert Hoffman.
Now, this is true Alex Jones did lose the custody battle but they failed to mention the role they played in it and how they slanted narrative
I’d like to point out how the media played a role in him losing this trial. When Alex Jone’s lawyer used the term he is “acting” as Jone’s defense the media ran with it as if it meant Alex Jones doesn’t believe in what he says. This led to countless members of the media coming out and attacking Jones about this. Jone’s was forced to answer these media members and posted a video explaining everything on his website. This video was used in court against Jones.
Now if Jones truly didn’t believe in what he said then this would be a huge story. Jone’s explanation made complete sense. He used the example of when he played the Joker on air during a broadcast. He doesn’t think he is the joker, he played it to prove a point and for entertainment. Even his ex-wife Kelly Jones admitted he actually believes what he says.
A report from mystatesman.com:
“He’s not a stable person,” she said of the man with whom her 14-year-old son and 9- and 12-year-old daughters have lived since her 2015 divorce. “He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J-Lo to get raped.
“I’m concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress,” she said, referring to his recent comments about California Democrat Adam Schiff. “He broadcasts from home. The children are there,”
This is just another example of how the media bullies people who disagree with them. They left out facts and slanted narrative to hurt Jones. This not only cost him part of his self-image but complete custody of his kids as well.
