Alex Jones' Infowars targeted by Apple, Spotify, Facebook and YouTube In a seemingly coordinated manner, multiple platforms have removed content from Alex Jones' Infowars outlet, citing violations of terms of service.
Podcasts and channels from the Infowars outlet disappeared from services run by Apple and Spotify, whilst Alex Jones' personal YouTube account was closed down for "violating community guidelines". Jones' personal Facebook page was also taken down.

According to Facebook, the page was removed for, "glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies."

Spotify explained the removal of podcasts from the Infowars outlet as punishment for, "repeated violations of Spotify's prohibited content policies."

Responding to the coordinated removal of Jones' and Infowars' content, Paul Joseph Watson claimed that the timing of the removal was intended to affect the upcoming midterm elections in the United States.



Watson is the editor-at-large at Infowars.

Jesus Christ this guy is on court record saying he spews conspiracy theories (like school shootings are fake) to get viewers. This website has gone so down hill.
