Alex Jones must pay $4m in damages for Sandy Hook hoax claims - BBC News

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been ordered to pay $4.1m (£3.3m) in damages after falsely claiming the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School school shooting, in which twenty children and six adults were shot dead, was a hoax.

The parents of a victim have sought at least $150m in the Texas defamation trial against the Infowars website founder.

They said they endured harassment and emotional distress because of the right-wing host’s misinformation.
