Journalist and content creator Alex Jones has been dragged through the mud in recent years for discussing subject matter that the Establishment detests. After being sued over comments made about the Sandy Hook shooting, Jones decided to fire back at some of his detractors, including Congressional hopeful Brianna Wu.
According to Infowars.com, Jones is suing Mother Jones editor Andrew Kimmel, Revolution 60 creator and #Gamergate loudmouth Brianna Wu, and The Young Turks for libeling him over the past summer.
Robert Barnes, Jones’ attorney, summed up the suit by explaining…
“For too long, the media feels it can tell any lie or libel about Alex Jones that it wants. Jones, as a strong advocate of both free press and free speech, resisted calls for suing those who continued to lie and libel him. But enough is enough. It is time to fight back. It is time for the truth to come out. Jones only sued those who refused requests for retractions and corrections,”
“Other defendants who similarly fail to retract or correct can look forward to future lawsuits. The media may think it’s Goliath, but it’s time it met David on the battlefield.”
The lawsuit was obviously discussed on Alex jones’ Infowars program, which you can check out below.
The tweet in question from Wu was posted on June 17th, 2019, where Jones was accused of sending child porn to the families of Sandy Hook.
The tweet is still live as of the writing of this article.
This is shocking, even by Alex Jones standards. He didn’t just send child porn to the #SandyHook families, he threatened to murder them on the air.

After Jones was unable to get the involved parties to issue retractions, he decided to do the next best thing possible… sue.
Wu is no stranger to controversy, though, and utilized social media to drum up Patreon support with wild allegations about #GamerGate, most of which bore out to contain no substantiation in truth.
I’m curious how Jones and his lawyer will deal with some of the wild allegations that Wu is known for making, and more importantly the insane Twitter brigades that oftentimes run to the aid of these social media-bound hellions.
