Alex Jones' 'Infowars' Account Banned From Youtube

Alex Jones' 'Infowars' Account Banned From Youtube

Like Facebook, Apple said it had chose to remove Jones' podcasts because the content violated its hate speech guidelines, BuzzFeed reported.

Spotify, the streaming music online service, had already removed a number of Jones' podcasts last week, accusing them of breaking its own hate-speech rules. The social network, however, eventually removed the videos from the Alex Jones Channel Page, the Alex Jones Page, the InfoWars Page, and the Infowars Nightly News Page.

Spotify also told the BBC that it had removed The Alex Jones Show from its podcast listings on Monday. "The approach that we've taken to false news is not to say, you can't say something wrong on the internet", Zuckerberg said. Facebook previously erased four videos hosted by these pages, but the company said users continued to report offensive content published by them.

Among his claims is that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting, which left 20 children and six adults dead, was a hoax.

The move by Facebook is the latest crackdown on Jones, who has recently had content removed from other platforms.

Facebook explained the reason it removed Jones' content in a blog post, the specific reasons for the take downs included: glorifying violence, and dehumanising language to attack minorities.

Jones was not available to respond to news agency requests for comment on Monday.

Several families affected by the shooting, and an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who responded to the attack, have sued Jones for defamation.

Ousmane Dembele spotted with Gunners squad
Arsenal have been linked with the France global in recent weeks and Gunners fans are thrilled at the prospect of having him. "Dembele is an Arsenal player and there's nothing you can do about it", one enthusiastic gunner confidently tweeted.

"We believe in representing a wide range of views, so long as people are respectful to those with differing opinions", an Apple spokesperson said.

Facebook acknowledged that Jones has violated their policies time and time again and that this has been an ongoing problem with Infowars.

A strong stand by Apple, to take down five InfoWars podcasts available on iTunes. Alex Jones's Page was also suspended for 30 days for posting the vitriolic content.

Paul Joseph Watson, an editor-at-large for Infowars, said on Twitter that Facebook's move was "political censorship" and "a culture war".

Jones says his "InfoWars" shows, which are broadcast on radio, YouTube and other platforms, reach at least 70 million people a week.

Spotify removed hundreds of episodes of "the Alex Jones Show", citing its policies on hate speech.

Facebook said the removal of Jones' pages were not due to fake news but were in violation of their bullying and hate speech policies.

"I'd be curious to see if companies become braver and braver in the next few weeks and just start removing more podcasts and more shows because they're jumping in on this together", Dockray said.
