Earlier today, we reported that Apple had pulled conservative commentator Alex Jones’ podcast from their iTunes Store.
Now web site The Verge is reporting that YouTube has now officially deleted the commentator’s channel, claiming that it had “Violated YouTube’s Community Guidelines”.
In a statement, YouTube said Jones had violated its terms of service and community guidelines, which said:
Jones had violated its terms of service and community guidelines. “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.”
Jones told The Washington Post that the termination of his accounts across multiple platforms today was “a counter-strike against the global awakening.” “You’re on the wrong side of history mainstream media,” he said. “You sold the country out, and now you’re going to pay for it.”
