Roger Stone admits to spreading lies on InfoWars, agrees to apologize publicly – MarketWatch

As questions swirl about his credibility, former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone settled a defamation suit seeking $100 million in damages on Monday for publishing false and misleading statements on InfoWars.com, a far-right website known for promoting conspiracy theories.

The agreement requires Stone to run ads in national newspapers, including The Wall Street Journal, apologizing for making defamatory statements about a Chinese businessman who is a vocal critic of Beijing. It also requires Stone to publish a retraction of the false statements on social media. Doing so exempts him from paying any of the damages.

Unrelated to the Russia probe, the settlement is the latest indication that Stone’s use of various media platforms to spread unfounded claims isn’t without consequences. Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office is investigating Stone’s role in orchestrating stories about key events being examined in the Russia probe, the Journal has reported.

  1. This is what unknown and trump really want. Slavery, where employees and workers have no rights. They are just chattel-cattle. Just like blacks in the south, indentured whites in colonial America, and the millions of genocides and enslaved native Americans that were massacred and had their land stolen. Thousands protest in the now fascist country of Hungary

    Workers and their allies engage in big protests in Hungary against Orban-backed “slavery law” that would let companies pressure employees to work 400 hours of overtime per year & employers wouldn’t have to pay that overtime for 3 years.

    This is what Trump, Abe, La Pen, Bolnasaro of Brazil and their ilk really want
