Social Media Censorship

The suspension of Jones and Infowars from various prominent social media platforms is what many people consider to be a hot-button issue. Many conservatives maintain that banning Jones from the aforementioned platforms sets a dangerous precedent. On Thursday, the Infowars host took to Twitter to speak out; he stated that the suspensions pertained to “favored” ideas and speech versus their “opposed” counterparts.

The collective banning of Jones is not the first time that conservatives have expressed concerns regarding social media censorship. In May, Donald Trump Jr. stated that Instagram purposefully promoted negative hashtags associated with his name. Trump Jr. furthermore noted drastic declines in his Instagram analytics. Not too long afterward, President Donald Trump criticized Twitter for allegedly censoring prominent Republican leaders.
