Infowars files for bankruptcy protection as founder faces Sandy Hook shooting defamation lawsuits

Notorious conspiracy theory website Infowars has filed for bankruptcy protection as its founder Alex Jones faces defamation lawsuits over his claims that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a hoax.

The move – described as “delaying the inevitable” by a lawyer representing families – puts civil litigation on hold while the company reorganises its finances.
