    YouTube, Apple and Facebook remove content from InfoWars and Alex Jones

    Jones has been predicting this long enough...

    YouTube, Facebook and Apple have taken steps to remove content associated with InfoWars and its founder Alex Jones.

    Each social media platform said Monday that it had removed content from Jones or InfoWars because it had violated their policies. The companies' moves shut down key distribution channels that had given the controversial media figure easy access to millions of internet users.

    The most dramatic action came last, from YouTube, which is owned by Google (GOOGL). It removed many top channels associated with InfoWars, including The Alex Jones Channel, which had 2.4 million subscribers and videos that were viewed over 1.5 billion times.

    I suspect it's more of an equivalent of turning off a teenagers radio; it's not the obnoxious music, it's the fact that its so loud that nobody else in the house can hear anything else.

    This is the guy who said Sandy Hook was fake.

    If people want to tune into this garbage, let him host it on his own website and pay for the bandwidth.

    These companies may be trying to get ahead of the Mueller investigation, which seems likely to issue an indictment of Roger Stone, and which may allege infowars as one of the media outlets (wittingly or unwittingly) used by the conspiracy.

    Infowars Reporter Gets Slammed After Claiming Facebook Isn't Privately Owned

    Dear Libtards who think Facebook is a privately owned business,

    There's a thing called fact-checking.

    Facebook is a public business that's publicly traded.

    Using that argument to justify banning Alex Jones doesn't work

    Twitter hasn't banned them yet and they are facing a shitstorm because of it.
