[Better late than never] YouTube finally notices Infowars is peddling
dangerous conspiracies


        Earlier this week, YouTube took down a video from one of
        Infowars' channels. It was one of many videos out there
        claiming that students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School
        are not in fact students and school shooting survivors, but
        are instead paid "crisis actors." The video, which was titled
        "David Hogg Can't Remember His lines In TV Interview," was
        removed by YouTube from the Alex Jones Channel on Wednesday
        and the platform said it violated its policies against
        harassment. CNN now reports that this qualifies as one strike
        against the Infowars channel and if it gets two more within a
        three-month period, the channel will be terminated.
