Facebook removes 4 pages from InfoWars and Alex Jones

Only one programme provided by InfoWars, "RealNews with David Knight" remained on Apple's platforms at the time of publication.

Last week, Facebook removed four of Jones' videos from the platform for offensive content, and suspended InfoWars founder Jones from the social media site for 30 days for violating Facebook's policies against bullying and hate speech.

Facebook says the decision came after it received complaints related to Infowars posts - and its decision was based on the use of "dehumanizing language" to "describe people who are transgender, Muslims, and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies".

Embattled conspiracy theory broadcaster Alex Jones was banned by YouTube on Monday.

Reports suggest it has made over $430 million in revenue since its release. In three weeks, the Denzel Washington-led sequel has earned $79 million.

While the ban cuts off a popular way to watch Infowars' videos and a revenue stream, Jones' outlet makes most of its money by selling nutritional supplements on its own website, where viewers can also find other versions of the channel's videos.

It also said they represent various views if "people are respectful to those with differing opinions".

Apple has removed the listings of five podcasts operated by Alex Jones, including all episodes of the Infowars podcast, BuzzFeed reported.

The company said Monday that more content from the pages had since been reported, and it had made a decision to remove them for "repeated violations of community standards and accumulating too many strikes". These pages were the Alex Jones Channel Page, the Alex Jones Page, the InfoWars Page and the Infowars Nightly News Page.

A representative for Apple could not be reached for further comment, but Infowars-branded podcasts like The Alex Jones Show and War Room are now inaccessible via iTunes. Among the theories he has promoted is that the 9/11 attacks on NY and Washington were staged by the government.

Apple's move comes on the heels of actions taken by other sites to rein in Jones.

Currently, Jones faces several lawsuits for his assertion that the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting, which left 20 children and six adults dead, was a hoax. "When users violate these policies repeatedly, like our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms prohibiting circumvention of our enforcement measures, we terminate their accounts".

"We take reports of hate content seriously and review any podcast episode or song that is flagged by our community", a representative said Monday.

There is a very big card coming up in NY with numerous top guys from my division on it and I would like to join them. Also, Dillashaw said he would welcome a challenge from Cejudo, so the superfight is a possibility as well.

"The establishment is making its move against free speech here in America", said Jones afterwards.
