Alex Jones statement:
After one strike was removed earlier in the week, YouTube hit the Alex Jones Channel with a third strike for a video that had already been appealed and restored.UPDATE 2:
In the video, Jones clearly explains how the victims of the Parkland shooting were not “crisis actors”.
YouTube’s flagging system is clearly being abused in a flagrant effort to shut down Infowars following a public campaign by CNN.
Americans should be ashamed to behave like Soviet censors. There's no legal or government remedy for a collective failure of character. https://t.co/b0VW0c7RTT— Joel B. Pollak (@joelpollak) March 4, 2018
I reached out to YouTube about this - it’s not true. Been informed there’s no plan to erase the channel tomorrow, as Jones says. https://t.co/VFiAIesB8A— Charlie Warzel (@cwarzel) March 4, 2018
Some more, according to YouTube:— Charlie Warzel (@cwarzel) March 4, 2018
YT DID tell Jones that advertisers reached out and asked to be removed from channel. But YT didnt tell Jones what he claims. Furthermore, YT says this isn’t even how the account termination process happens (getting advance warning)
