Google targets alternative press, censors PrisonPlanet and InfoWars: Alex Jones
“We noticed two weeks ago—and we’ve done research and confirmed it—that PrisonPlanet.com, that for eight years has been accepted by Google News, has been completely banned,” Jones said. “No headline of PrisonPlanet.Com or InfoWars.com is allowed into Google News.”
Now, Jones continued, YouTube has stated that it has frozen the YouTube account “TheAlexJonesChannel”.
Jones explained that he received notice from YouTube that the channel has been flagged for a “community guidelines violation”.
The content that the TheAlexJonesChannel allegedly uploaded in violation of YouTube’s “Community Guidelines” shows a U.S. Apache helicopter shooting journalists in Iraq.
“Today, we received a notice for the Alex Jones channel”¦that it is going to be shut down for the foreseeable future,” Jones said.
The video, known as “Collateral Murder”, was originally made public by the whistleblowers website Wikileaks in April. Once online, it was immediately duplicated, edited, and rebroadcast by major media outlets around the world.
As Jones has pointed out, portions of the 18-minute-long video appear in video clips uploaded by many other YouTube users who presumably have not received violations notices nor penalties.
The alternative media that is literally challenging and displacing the tired, corporate, globalist media, is under attack," Jones said in the November 19 video. "Google–the parent company of YouTube–has now launched a campaign of censorship against us."
