Censorship on the web – Is Alex Jones the beginning?
Today both Google and its subsidiary company YouTube has banned the Alex Jones websites and channels in an attempt to quiet the libertarian.
But is Alex Jones really a libertarian who can be silenced? Google, YouTube and the government would like that. Claims by Alex Jones, backed by research by him and his team, have revealed how his websites and networks are being targeted for the very nature of his uncensored content.
According to YouTube’s support team, his channel was flagged by users because of a video on the channel that contained controversial video of the Apache helicopter “collateral murder” in Iraq in 2007 that was released by Wikileaks and later released by TheAlexJonesChannel as well as news conglomerates like CNN and ABC. YouTube notified Alex Jones of the removal of this video.
TheAlexJonesChannel attempted to challenge the removal of this video via YouTube’s counter-notification form, and was subsequently told that the account would be disabled and new content blocked, as his channel is offensive and otherwise goes against their community guidelines.
Is censorship really happening in front of our eyes online? With the speed of the internet, can the government really silence the truth? Here’s Alex Jones’ retort.
