Alex Jones, a prominent figure in right-wing conspiracy theories, has taken a significant step by initiating the liquidation of his personal assets. This decision comes in response to demands from the families of Sandy Hook victims, to whom Jones owes more than $1.5 billion in damages for his false claims regarding the 2012 school massacre.


  • Jones’ move signals a potential shift in the ownership structure of Infowars, the influential conspiracy media outlet he established in the late 1990s.
  • Throughout its existence, Infowars has been a platform for disseminating harmful falsehoods and conspiracy theories while also generating substantial profits for Jones.
  • Despite prior resistance, Jones has yielded to mounting legal pressure and agreed to convert his personal bankruptcy into a Chapter 7 liquidation.
  • This decision follows jury verdicts in Connecticut and Texas, where Jones was found liable for defamation and emotional distress in 2022. 
  • The liquidation process is expected to involve the sale of Jones’ ownership in Free Speech Systems, the parent company of Infowars. While Infowars’ future remains uncertain, the liquidation of Jones’ assets does not necessarily mean its demise. 


Despite these developments, Jones’ representatives have not yet provided a comment on the matter, leaving unanswered questions regarding the future of Infowars and Jones’ involvement in it.
