(Editor’s note: there are a few things about Alex Jones that some think doesn’t meet the straight-face test. For example, his website actually joined forces with the Establishment a few years ago, opposing Joe Miller’s efforts against Murkowski in 2010. This led some to believe that he is simply another Deep State agent, sowing discord and disinformation as the oligarchs demand. Some even point to early pictures of Jones, claiming they are similar to an image of a CIA agent from several decades ago. And a few question why Jones would continue to be monetized by Google when sites like Restoring Liberty have already been banned. With that in mind, how do you make sense of the following? Is it all a bluff?).
InfoWars is reportedly one step closer to being banned from YouTube after posting a video promoting a conspiracy theory about the Florida high school shooting.
The channel, run by famed conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, received one strike from YouTube for posting that video, CNN reported Friday.
If a channel receives three strikes from YouTube within three months, it gets banned from YouTube.
“Last summer we updated the application of our harassment policy to include hoax videos that target the victims of these tragedies,” a YouTube spokesperson told CNN. “Any video flagged to us that violates this policy is reviewed and then removed.”
The video in question claimed that survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting in Parkland, Fla., were actors. It singled out student David Hogg, who has spoken out publicly after the shooting. (Read more from “Infowars One Step Closer to Youtube Ban After Florida Conspiracy Theory Video” HERE)
