Alex Jones has had some of his podcasts removed from Spotify, some of his videos removed from Youtube, and hit with suspensions from Youtube and Facebook.

While it would be tempting to take this as a sign that these media outlets are taking a stance against fake news and conspiritard bullshit, I think the more likely explanation is that Youtube and Spotify and Facebook are just doing some ass-covering so that they don't get named as co-defendants next time Alex Jones gets sued.  Doing the bare minimum to say "look, we are taking action!" without hurting their bottom line and losing the dollars they get from providing conspiritard content to conspiritard audiences.
