A VICTORY FOR FACTS AND DECORUM

InfoWars and Alex Jones have been permanently banned from Twitter for repeatedly violating their abusive behavior policy.

Good job Twitter.  

There will be those who will decry this as a blocking free speech.   It is not, in our view.  Free speech does not remove you from responsibility for your speech, and it in no way stops Mr. Jones from expressing his views.  Twitter has a right and a responsibility to ensure that they are not used as a tool to spread misinformation and hate filled rhetoric from all sides of the spectrum.

No one is saying he can't speak, just that he can't use their megaphone.

BRAVO!!

We can add Apple to the list of companies that don't want Alex Jones using their platform to spread his conspiracy nonsense.

Again BRAVO!!
