CNN is trying to have Alex Jones banned from both Facebook and YouTube, I guess thinking that's the best way for Democrats to take back the White House without doing anything at all for black people. They almost managed as much in 2016, but they didn't do a good enough job of censoring people, and thus the Russians were able to rig the election for Trump. There's an investigation underway, but alas, it might not ensnare anyone other than Don Jr.
Alex Jones received some sort of fake warning from YouTube back during the whole Parkland, FL brouhaha—easily my least favorite news cycle of the year so far—but apparently now he's received a real warning, one that involves, among other things, him not being able to livestream for 90 days. The ability to livestream is key, because you can use it to say and do all kinds of things you wouldn't be able to get away with it in a prerecorded video.
I know Alex Jones used to livestream on the reg, because I would get an alert on my phone every time he went live. I didn't sign up for these alerts. Google just sent them to me anyway, because they monitor my activity.
Facebook is under a lot of pressure for allowing Russia to rig the election. The other day, it was announced that Facebook stock dropped by over 20% in a single day. Yikes! Mark Zuckerberg himself lost $17 billion. Fortunately, he's pretty far along the autism spectrum, or else he would have gone upside someone's head. He might consider dropping some of his Facebook stock and copping Amazon—if that's allowed.
In order to try to get some of that $17 billion back, it was announced the other day that Alex Jones has been banned from Facebook for 30 days. I doubt he actually updated his own Facebook anyway (never go on Facebook, if you don't have to), but I guess Infowars won't be able to post links to its articles. But don't sites have to pay for Facebook to distribute their articles to more than a small handful of people? This might cost them more than it costs him.
