Stephen Colbert's Alex Jones Parody Has Fallen on Hard Times

InfoWars Appears To Have Been Kicked Off Pinterest Which It Was On Apparently

It was a thinly veiled dig at Facebook and YouTube, which took action against Jones on Monday only after Apple chose to scrub his podcasts from iTunes on the grounds that they included hate speech.

Alex Jones from Infowars.com speaks during a rally in support of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump near the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, U.S. July 18, 2016.

Colbert was referring to the news that tech companies and social media sites have chose to either ban or pull content from Infowars and Jones from their sites.

In a similar move, Spotify also removed all the episodes of Jones' The Alex Jones Show after removing selected episodes last week.

As of early Monday, just one of the six Infowars programs once listed by Apple remained, RealNews with David Knight.




Despite being banned by some tech companies and having his podcasts removed, the Infowars iPhone app became the fourth most popular news app in the App Store on Tuesday, according to screen grabs shared online.

In a series of tweets, Dorsey wrote that Jones would be removed from Twitter if he violates the platform's rules.

We didn't suspend Alex Jones or Infowars yesterday. Facebook, YouTube, and Spotify all pulled content the next day.

"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", YouTube said in a statement to media. The social media giant found four videos on Jones' account which, it maintains, warranted an enforced, involuntary break from Facebook.

Dorsey further explained/admitted that Twitter has "been awful at explaining our decisions in the past", but the platform refuses to "succumb and simply react to outside pressure" by banning Jones like most other digital platforms. Previously, Jones has claimed the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax set up by anti-gun activists, causing some of his disciples to threaten and harass victims' parents. In a defamation suit filed in Connecticut Superior Court in late May, the families said Jones promotes conspiracies to drive traffic to his website and subsequently sell products to his followers.
