On Friday afternoon, Infowars founder and host Alex Jones released the following statement relating to the ongoing news coverage of his child custody hearings:

My statement regarding the media and my ongoing custody trial:

Above all, this is a private matter. This is about my family and only my family. I have endeavored very faithfully for three years to keep this circumstance confidential for the sake of my children to protect their innocence.

I urge the press to be respectful and responsible and to show due deference to the process of the law and respect the boundaries defined for this case so that a fair result can be found.

As there is a gag/protective order on the trial for the safety, welfare, and preservation of our children’s private rights and what is in their best interest, I am holding my responses until the end of trial.

– Alex Jones

Some of the big news this week from the case has included Jones’ lawyer claiming that the conspiracy theorist is a “performance artist”, the revelation that Jones was diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder, and Jones testifying that he couldn’t remember basic facts about his kids after eating a “big bowl of chili.”
