CNN has been gunning for Alex Jones.
The left-wing network targeted the controversial pro-Trump radio host under the guise of cracking down on fake news.
And they just won a fight that could lead to tech companies censoring Trump supporters across the Internet.
CNN has been aggressively questioning social media platforms like YouTube and Facebook as to why they allowed Jones to use their sites to distribute his content.
Reporters pointed to allegations Jones claimed the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax to why he should be denied the ability to spread conspiracy theories online.
Following multiple weeks of relentless propaganda, Apple, YouTube, and Facebook announced they were removing videos, podcasts, and pages for Jones’ show InfoWars from their sites.
Apple confirmed on Monday that it had removed five out of six podcasts, which includes Jones’ infamous “The Alex Jones Show” as well as a number of other InfoWars audio streams. The news was originally reported by BuzzFeed News.
Facebook and Google made similar decisions later on Monday. Facebook removed four pages controlled by him, while Google removed the official “Alex Jones Channel” on its platform. The YouTube channel for InfoWars, the media company owned by Alex Jones, still remains live.
Jones, a controversial conspiracy theorist who has claimed that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax, has been hit with other content bans from the likes of Spotify.
What is especially troubling is that none of the tech companies cited misinformation or fake news as to why Jones was deplatformed.
All three companies claimed Jones violated “hate speech” community to standards.
To liberals like the reporters at CNN and who run tech companies, conservative opinion is hate speech.
