ITunes ditches podcasts from controversial InfoWars creator Alex Jones

ITunes ditches podcasts from controversial InfoWars creator Alex Jones

Facebook has also suspended Mr Jones' personal account for 30 days after he posted content that the firm said was against its "community standards", although his public page continues to post updates.

Facebook emphasized that it hasn't technically removed the pages but simply unpublished them, which leaves the door open for an appeal by Jones.

The Infowars podcasts removed from iTunes include The Alex Jones Show, War Room, and Infowars Freedom Nuggets.

BuzzFeed News reported Sunday that Apple has removed five of Infowars' six podcast from its iTunes and Podcast apps for violating hate speech guidelines.

It has a dual rear camera of 13-megapixel sensors which are coupled with f/2.0 aperture, dual tone LED flash and RGB+Mono mode. Moreover, it also supports wireless charging only and a wireless charger will be provided separately for it.


It also said they represent various views if "people are respectful to those with differing opinions". Only one InfoWars podcast, Real News With David Knight, is still available on Apple.

Publishing platforms have faced strong pressure to take action against Jones and Infowars over the past few months, but Apple is the first major company to sanction the broadcaster in its entirety: other platforms, including Facebook, YouTube and Spotify, have taken down specific pieces of content produced by Jones or Infowars that breached terms of service, but have allowed the publisher to stay active on their sites. Last week, Facebook removed four videos on four of Jones' pages for violating its hate speech and bullying policies, according to a statement put out by the media platform.

The removal of Jones' podcast from those platforms comes after Spotify deleted some episodes of the Alex Jones Show last week. It has suggested that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax, and that the September 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job orchestrated by the U.S. government.

The shooting left 26 children and adults dead at a CT elementary school.

Neither Jones nor a representative for InfoWars were available early on Monday for comment.

He is being sued in Texas by two Sandy Hook parents, seeking at least $1 million, claiming that they have been the subject of harassment driven by his programs.

Founded in 1999 and often described as "actually only a tiny bit worse than Fox News", InfoWars has over the years gained a large following among far right conservatives.

Jones is facing defamation lawsuits from the families of Sandy Hook victims after his claims that the school shooting was a hoax. "We take reports of hate content seriously and review any podcast episode or song that is flagged by our community", the company said in a statement to The Post.
