Spotify Purges Alex Jones Podcasts For 'Violating Hate Content Policy'

Spotify Purges Alex Jones Podcasts For 'Violating Hate Content Policy'”

Nevertheless, The Alex Jones Show still appears on Spotify with more than one year's worth of episodes still available for streaming.

Jones also faces multiple defamation lawsuits. This came after YouTube removed four videos from Jones' channel, saying they violated the company's hate-speech and child-endangerment policies.

"Sandy Hook is a synthetic, completely fake, with actors, in my view, manufactured", he said in a January 2015 broadcast.

The parents of six-year-old Noah Pozner, who was killed in the Sandy Hook massacre, say Jones' followers have tormented them with death threats, forcing them to move seven times.

The Pozner-De La Rosa family's lawyers in their lawsuit against Jones recounted their history with the Infowars host in court filings.

Massachussetts man Marcel Fontaine has also filed a $US1 million ($1.3 million) suit claiming Jones caused him "enormous injury and continuing personal harassment" by using a photo of him to falsely identify him as a suspect of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Jones' attorney argues that his client's past comments are protected by free speech and the suits should be dismissed, reports CBS News' Tony Dokoupil.

In written arguments, Jones's lawyers argue he was acting as a journalist in the tradition of famed Watergate journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein in questioning the official narrative of the CT shooting.

A gunman killed 20 young children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012, in an attack that ranks among the five deadliest mass shootings by a single gunman in US history. It ranks among the five deadliest mass shootings by a single gunman in US history.

YouTube took down four videos from the Infowars channel last week, for violating its rules on graphic content and hate speech. He has also promoted a theory that the 9/11 attacks on NY and Washington were staged by the government.

The parents contend that Jones had made them part of the Sandy Hook conspiracy in what is one of two defamation lawsuits that the Infowars host is trying to throw out this week. He is also facing civil action in CT in lawsuits by additional Sandy Hook parents.
