In Alex Jones' Sandy Hook deposition, a persona undone

Mark Bankston (Juanita Jean's son) had fun in this depo https://www.statesman.com/news/20191214/in-alex-jonesrsquo-sandy-hook-deposition-persona-undone?fbclid=IwAR0tHC9LXbZP1XjRvdVwAFIAUygH7zfDlOI-I8eZ25o2M5zXV7up2TSExXk

As Houston attorney Mark Bankston, representing Sandy Hook parents in four suits in Austin against Jones and his InfoWars operation, on Nov. 26 methodically asked Jones to explain how he came to report that tragedy as a hoax supposedly orchestrated as a pretext to crack down on gun rights, a subdued Jones seemed mostly befuddled.

Forty-four times he answered, “I don’t remember;” 51 times, “I don’t know.”
Pulling back the curtain on Jones’ news operation, it appeared there was no there there, just a slipshod hodgepodge of rumor, malign supposition, twisted words and recycled misinformation from notably unreliable sources, all hyped by Jones into the truth they don’t want you to know.

Absent his gravelly and ferocious on-air growls, the various “anomalies” that Jones said made him suspicious of events at Sandy Hook, as recounted one by one by Bankston in the quietude of the deposition room, sounded ridiculous.
Jones’ deposition, and those of three InfoWars associates, became public Thursday when they were filed in a Travis County court by

Bankston in the case of Neil Heslin, the father of slain 6-year-old Jesse Lewis.
Bankston also filed a 49-page motion asking state District Judge Scott Jenkins, who is presiding over four Sandy Hook suits, to order a default judgment holding Jones and InfoWars liable without even requiring a jury trial, except to determine the size of the damages, as a consequence of what he contends is their flagrant refusal or inability to seriously answer questions.
