Daily Bread for 8.9.22: The Alex Jones Verdict

Good morning.

Tuesday in Whitewater will be mostly sunny with a high of 77. Sunrise is 5:55 AM and sunset 8:04 PM for 14h 08m 55s of daytime.  The moon is a waxing gibbous with 90.4% of its visible disk illuminated. 

 Whitewater’s Public Works Committee meets at 6 PM

 On this day in 1974, as a direct result of the Watergate scandal, Richard Nixon becomes the first President of the United States to resign from office. Vice President Gerald Ford becomes president.

Alex Jones falsely stated that the parents of deceased children from the Sandy Hook school shooting were mere ‘crisis actors’ (as Jones contended no one died in the shooting), those statements caused the parents demonstrable injury, and he communicated these false statements to third parties. Therein lies the cause of action against Jones, resulting in compensatory and punitive damages against him.  

That civil case against Jones is the subject of the podcast embedded below. 

No society will be free of a few like Jones. A healthy society, however, teaches principles of reason so thoroughly that men of Jones’s ilk have few listeners. 

America is not so healthy as she should — and can — be.
