THE TRUTH VS. ALEX JONES (HBO) – World Premiere – Documentary Spotlight

Filmed over four years with unprecedented courtroom access, the story of how families whose children were murdered in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting took on conspiracy giant Alex Jones in two historic courtroom trials, attempting to hold Jones and InfoWars accountable for the lies they began spreading just hours after the tragedy. Bringing Jones to trial involved years of effort by grieving parents and their legal teams and culminated in two jury trials for damages in Texas and Connecticut. The result was America’s largest award for damages in a defamation case, with nearly $1.5 billion awarded by juries in the two states to the families, just as Jones declared bankruptcy.
