Due to the multiple lawsuits that Alex Jones is facing, Reuters reports that Infowars filed for voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Sunday in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas. 

Chapter 11 bankruptcy processes hold all civil litigation issues and let companies organize turnaround strategies while staying functional. A court recently found Jones liable for damages in a trio of suits last year following his false claims that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax.

Furthermore, the Sandy Hook families declined Jones’s offer to settle their defamation suit and reopened the case in late March. The radio host had proposed to pay $120,000 to each of the 13 plaintiffs to settle the case. 

“The so-called offer is a transparent and desperate attempt by Alex Jones to escape a public reckoning under oath with his deceitful, profit-driven campaign against the plaintiffs and the memory of their loved ones lost at Sandy Hook,” the plaintiffs stated in court documents. 

Jones argued the shooting, in which 20 children and six school employees died in the shooting at the school in Newtown, Connecticut, was manufactured by gun-control supporters and mainstream media, leading to lawsuits from the families.

According to court filings by the company on Sunday, InfoWars detailed its estimated assets in the range of $0-$50,000 and estimated liabilities in the field of $1 million to $10 million.

Unlike so many pundits who have expressed outrage that Twitter’s Elon Musk has reinstated former President Donald Trump’s account, Clay Travis and Buck Sexton said Monday they’re excited about the prospect of Trump tweeting again. 

Musk reactivated Trump’s account over the weekend after more than 15 million users polled voted for his reinstatement. Trump’s account was banned following the Jan 6th riots. 

“There are huge implications to this (reinstatement) and a lot of variables at play,” Sexton said. “The one thing is that we know that Trump has TRUTH social. The problem is there’s going to end up being one dominant platform and then some other platforms that are more niche.” 

Despite the reinstatement, Trump has not confirmed whether he will return to Twitter. 

“What Elon Musk is doing right now, is showing true bravery,” said Travis. “First of all, he put up a poll to allow people to vote on whether Trump should be allowed back on the platform. I’m not sure if Trump being back on Twitter if he decides to reclaim his account is going to be beneficial to him at all. In fact, I think it may benefit Democrats.”

More than two years after the New York Post broke the Hunter Biden laptop story, CBS News said they have confirmed the authenticity of the story. 

News Talk 105.9 WMAL host Vince Coglianese said Monday that CBS News appears to be “melting down.” Coglianese said several media outlets knew within days that the Hunter Biden laptop story was significant, especially as his father was running to become the President of the United States. 

“Organizations like the Daily Caller and the New York Post had authenticated it immediately,” said Coglianese. “The media has come along begrudgingly over the last couple of years and said it could be kind of real I guess.” 

Two years ago, former President Donald Trump told CBS’ Lesley Stahl on “60 Minutes” the Hunter Biden laptop was real and should be covered by the media. 

According to the New York Post, on Monday CBS News correspondent Catherine Herridge reported that she received a copy of Hunter Biden’s hard drive from former Delaware computer repairman John Paul Mac Isaac. She also said she spoke to a scientist who said the hard drive appeared to be real. 

“CBS News finally signed off on the ability for Catherine Herridge to say this stuff in public,” stated Coglianese. “It’s hard to believe that it’s because of Herridge kind of doggedly staying after this and her saying we have to get a report out that they finally aired this.”

As a result, the news division has been a punching bag over the last few days and SiriusXM host Megyn Kelly is one of many piling on CBS News as she ridiculed the decision.

“Is this a joke? CBS News – former home to Mike Wallace and Ed Bradley – is afraid of … Twitter?” Kelly tweeted on Sunday.

On Friday, the news network announced that they were suspending activity, but then on Sunday, a decision was made to reverse course and remain active on Twitter.

“After pausing for much of the weekend to assess the security concerns, CBS News and Stations is resuming its activity on Twitter as we continue to monitor the situation,” the statement said.
