You must have already heard that Alex Jones has been banished from the the whole raft of platforms, including Facebook, YouTube and Apple. It’s all over the Internet. But did you hear this news?

I wouldn’t say “left-leaning Latin American news network”, I would say “truth-leaning Latin American news network”, but that’s the other story.
So, now we have “hate-speech nut job” in the same basket with the regular alter-news network? What is the common denominator? Both have a story that diverse from the terrible official narrative. Which means, censorship has become the last resort of the crumbling corporative media AND controlled social platforms. Big time:

Unfortunately, ‘Kafkaesque’ character of this act — punishing without any explanation why — can be repeated at Steemit despite the decentralized nature of the platform.

Steemit is not enough.
