If Alex Jones screams on Google+, will anyone hear him?
If Alex Jones is screaming on Google+, will anyone hear him?
Major distribution and markting platforms such as Apple, Facebook, Google’s YouTube, LinkedIn and Spotify this week removed content and pages by Jones, long known for claiming that the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre was staged and more recently for accusing Robert Mueller of pedophilia. They cited violations of their terms of service.
He remains active on Twitter, however, because that platform says it hasn’t detected a violation of its terms. And he has remained busy on other channels as well. His message might not capture the same audience as it did on YouTube and Facebook, but he retains avenues to generate revenue from the tech platforms, ones that that aren’t necessarily as visible to the public eye.
