The Internet’s Truth vs. Fake News Showdown
Posted on 10th August, by in News. Comments Off
Facebook earlier this week pulled the plug on the official page for Alex Jones, host of Infowars and noted conspiracy theorist. YouTube quickly followed, removing Infowars and Jones' videos. Facebook's move followed Apple's decision to pull five of Infowars' six podcasts -- including the "Alex Jones Show" and "War Room" -- from the iTunes and Podcasts apps. Facebook removed four pages related to Jones and Infowars for "repeated violations" and for "glorifying violence," as well as for using "dehumanizing language."
