Apple says it is monitoring Infowars app for content violations

Gab is a free speech friendly social media platform

Free Speech Social Media Platform Gab Surges After Big Tech Infowars Purge Gab 8 Aug 2018

Jones' show InfoWars is known for posting conspiracy theories.

Following the purge of Infowars by big tech companies earlier this week, the Infowars app has been trending: now, it's ranked No. 3 in the "News" category of Apple's App Store, behind Twitter and News Break and ahead of apps for news organizations including CNN, Fox News, the New York Times, and BuzzFeed. "And we'll continue to promote a healthy conversational environment by ensuring tweets aren't artificially amplified". Seeing as the company has been so vocal lately about trying to curb "troll-like behaviors" and working to "reduce people's ability to detract from healthy public conversation", it seems like they'd be on board with banning someone who has built his career on harassing the parents of murdered children as well as teenage school shooting victims, who uses his platform to spread risky and hateful misinformation. "We'll enforce if he does".

Facebook, YouTube, Apple, and Spotify all banned the page, channel, and podcasts of the host's InfoWars platform from their services earlier this week, citing Jones for "hate speech".

Jones is now facing a raft of defamation lawsuits, including multiple suits from the families of Sandy Hook victims. Several of the children's families - who have been harassed and threatened by people who believe the conspiracy theory - have filed lawsuits against Jones.

Jones has responded to the ban by calling it "21st-century warfare", and an attack on his right to free speech. When asked about this questionable decision, Facebook's News Feed director John Hegeman stated, "I guess just for being false that doesn't violate the community standards".

Under mounting public pressure, Facebook has now changed its mind.

The videos reportedly included one that centred on Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, who Jones likened to members of the Nazi Party.

Scholes said the club has undoubtedly brought in talented managers, but they still lack the edge when it matters the most. Leicester City has registered just a single victory in previous 8 visits to Old Trafford.

Finally, online digital platforms are taking the threat from Alex Jones seriously - and it's about time.

Many conservatives raised eyebrows at the rapid succession of the bans, speculating they were part of a coordinated campaign. This followed news that the company had shared the data of 87 million users with political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica.
