It's shame there aren't many debtors prisons left in the world, Jones wold be such a fine "upstanding" candidate for a place in one.

For those not in the know, the "residents" of a debtors prison were held there until they'd cleared their debts, but additionally they had to pay all the costs of their "lodgings". They were "encouraged" to do good works, to the benefit of the community, and the money this earned would be used to reduce their debt. Needless to such works were at the more unpleasant end of the spectrum.

I wonder how much that cost Rupert.

News Corp parent company settles decades-old phone-hacking claims.

News Corp's British newspaper group on Tuesday settled a series of claims of phone-hacking brought by celebrities and other individuals, including a "Spice Girl" and a former minister who said he was targeted because he was a political opponent....
Probably not enough so keep on suing him and his fake far right news empire until it's all gone. ;-)

Far right fake news pusher, Alexander, loses to the truth once again.

Appeals court rules against Alex Jones, upholding $75K fine after missed deposition.

If you want to push far right conspiracy theories and fake B.S. then you must be prepared to pay the price for doing so.

Juries are sending a clear message to right-wing conspiracy peddlers: Pay up.

Fake B.S spreader (and another of Donny's crooked mob) scruffy Stephen could be in more trouble as more info surfaces.

Feds Say Bannon-Tied Groups Part of ‘Criminal Organization’.

A superseding indictment against Steve Bannon’s embattled sugar daddy alleges that multiple outfits the duo co-founded—as well as ill-starred social media app Gettr—were part of a criminal consortium that bilked Chinese dissidents living abroad.

The new details come out of an updated criminal complaint against Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, who caught charges last year for allegedly defrauding his followers with a bogus crypto scheme and using their money to buy a mansion, a yacht, multiple foreign-built luxury vehicles, ornamental rugs, and even a “$53,000 fireplace log cradle holder.”

The new document, filed on Wednesday, for the first time lists dozens of entities that the Department of Justice alleges formed part of the “Kwok Enterprise,” named for one of Guo’s alter egos, Ho Wan “Miles” Kwok.

This list features several investment vehicles and various arms of the sprawling multilingual media operation Guo and Bannon used to depict themselves and their allies as messianic crusaders against the Chinese Communist Party—as well as companies connected to the “farm” network that The Daily Beast reported in 2021 amassed money from supporters for dubious investments. But perhaps the most notable name of all those is Gettr—the “free speech” social media platform formerly helmed by Trump advisor Jason Miller and which The Daily Beast revealed shortly after its launch was funded by Guo, and the twin nonprofits the Rule of Law Foundation and Rule of Law Society......

Mikey, if you don't pay up you don't get the service that you didn't pay for (especially if you're a buddy of crooked Donny) and Rupert has always known when to cut his losses.

Lindell Says Fox News Has Dropped MyPillow.

It'll be a tossup between Mikey and Rudolf to who winds up broke first I reckon, but many other supporters of the "Great Lie" will soon follow suit.

The creator of fake news gets engaged again for the umpteenth time.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch, 92, engaged again, this time to Elena Zhukova.

Maybe he thinks that having his own molecular biologist may make him last longer.

Sprung!

Lawyer linked to 'parasitic' AI content network identified.

The ABC asked an Australian lawyer, employed by a large media organisation, if he was behind a 'parasitic' content farm.

Hours later it was all taken down – though this lawyer said he was not actually operating the websites.

The ABC's investigation started when Patrick Woods, a sports journalist at the Townsville Bulletin, noticed that strange versions of his stories were showing up on a site called League Initiative.....
But was he employed by them or was he the actual owner? Time well tell I guess.

For that young fake B.S. spreading moron Alexander the time is up.

Jones ordered to liquidate assets to help pay debt over false Sandy Hook shooting claims.

A US judge has ordered conspiracy theorist Alex Jones's personal assets be liquidated in order to pay $US1.5 billion ($2.2 billion) to the families of victims from the Sandy Hook shooting, which he falsely claimed was a hoax.

The Infowars creator's separate company bankruptcy case was dismissed on Friday, local time, but the future of the media platform remains uncertain.

Judge Christopher Lopez approved converting Jones's proposed personal bankruptcy reorganisation to a liquidation, but threw out the attempted reorganisation of his company, Austin, Texas-based Free Speech Systems.

Many of the Sandy Hook families had asked that the company also be liquidated.

If Free Speech Systems' bankruptcy reorganisation had been converted to a liquidation, Jones could have lost ownership of the company, its social media accounts, the Infowars studio in Austin and all copyrights as the company's possessions were sold........
