As of Monday, only one InfoWars podcast, named "RealNews with David Knight", remained on iTunes.

Infowars' apps are still available for download in Apple's App Store. It's worth noting that YouTube removed the videos days earlier for posting "violent or graphic content" that violated its policies.

Facebook stressed that it was the violent language used by Jones, rather than his conspiracy theories, that prompted the move.

Among the conspiracy theories Jones, 44, has peddled are charges that the United States government was behind numerous terrorist attacks, including the September 11 strikes on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The shooting left 26 children and adults dead at a CT elementary school. Jones has counter-sued, demanding in turn that they pay his court costs. "InfoWars commentator Paul Joseph Watson has another 1.3 million YouTube subscribers, while other InfoWars accounts have a combined 423,000 subscribers".

Welcome to Alex Jones' bad, horrible, no good, chemtrail-filled day. Jones and his associated accounts aren't now in violation of Twitter's rules, Twitter said in a statement to USA TODAY. Now, YouTube has followed suit in dramatic fashion by permanently banning both the Alex Jones and InfoWars channels from existence.

Alex Jones is a controversial radio and podcast host based in Austin, Texas. They are The Alex Jones Channel Page, The Alex Jones Page, the Infowars Nightly News Page and the Infowars Page. There are plenty of conservative & liberal podcasts that don't harass the parents of children killed at Sandy Hook or Las Vegas shooting victims. While Jones said he now believes the shooting was not a hoax, he said his earlier claims were protected under US free speech laws. He has sought to have the lawsuit dismissed. He also defended Trump's repeated attack on journalists as "the enemy of the people".

However, the Infowars Documentaries channel Mr. Jones touted as a replacement is still published on YouTube.

Spotify removed some episodes of Jones's shows last week.

In a statement posted online Monday, Facebook said it had removed four of Alex Jones' video pages "for violating our hate speech and bullying policies".

"We take reports of hate content seriously and review any podcast episode or song that is flagged by our community", a company spokesperson said. The decision to completely pull the other shows, including "The Alex Jones Show" and "War Room", represents a broader effort than those made by other companies in recent days to stop disseminating material associated with Jones, whom the Southern Poverty Law Center calls "the most prolific conspiracy theorist in contemporary America".

Alex Jones can keep tweeting, for now.

"If you come out before the midterms and make the censorship the big issue of them trying to steal the election".
