Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Spotify, including Stitcher removed all of Alex Jones contents from their respective platforms. Apple confirmed that it had removed 5 out of 6 podcasts reported by BuzzFeed News. Facebook removed four pages managed by Alex Jones. Google’s YouTube removed the official “Alex Jones Channel” which had over 2 million subscribers.
Pinterest removed the official InfoWars board after “multiple people alerted the company to policy violations”. Spotify removed his podcasts claiming that his podcasts are a violation of “hateful content”. Stitcher has strongly claimed that Alex Jones has “harassed or allowed harassment of private individuals and organizations”
None of the companies are however clear on what the specific instance is that led them to terminate his account.
The fact that it is extremely DANGEROUS to see the Social Media Giants colluding to shut down different political viewpoints can’t be ignored.Most suggest that it is because of his views on 2012 Sandy Hook, which Alex Jones has retracted long ago and apologized.
Leftists also claim that Alex Jones’ retraction is unaccepted. However, MSM does that all the time.
On July 26, Forbes published a fake article stating “Jones pushed a child to the ground”. Forbes changed the sentence on their slanderous article after realizing that the person pushing the child wasn’t Alex Jones.
But whether you like Alex Jones or not, the biases and immorally shutting down right-wing opinions by the mainstream left-wing giants controlling 90% of the social media outlets are something to be fearful of.
