    Sadly, it doesn’t surprise me. This is what the Left do, especially now they are losing.

    They have been plotting and planning this for years. Both the Drudge Report and InfoWars has been warning everyone who cares to listen that the swamp is determined to shutdown all websites that don’t spout their propaganda, masquerading as news, or show endless mind-numbing videos of kittens and similar pap.

    The question is will President Trump do anything to reverse the banning actions of Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and the rest, or will he allow it to proceed to its logical conclusion?

    These companies need to be broken up into smaller entities, with rules about free speech attached to their right to exist as companies. The same goes for the TV/ Entertainment megacompanies, such as the infamous CNN, and the Newspapers such as the Washington Post.

    And when he’s finished with these evil people in the USA, I’d like him to spend some time here in the UK to identify a team of patriots and advise them how they do the same to our swamp dwellers.

    I rarely watch Infowars as too wordy – I prefer brief summary and then maybe hunt for more detail.

    Next News Network is good for this.

    However, the co-ordinated banning by all is disgusting and Evil. Even one platform banning IW is wrong.

    Is PJW’s stand-alone channel still up? Yes

    Solution – don’t know. Maybe all News carriers must obey First Amendment.

    Every single morning, without fail, BBC R4 churns out 3 headlines – regardless of what’s actually happening, everything is twisted to breaking point just to ram home three things:

    1. We hate brexit.
    2. We have Trump
    3. We hate the Conservatives.

    At any cost whatsoever, everything is spun to force that message on to the airwaves. It’s putrid, there is never analysis, never a dissenting voice, it is constantly a relentless assault on common sense and is utterly, completely biased.

    The Left, hilariously, think the BBC is right wing. The very concept shows how utterly insane they are.

    As for the alt right, well, the Left create enemies to justify themselves. The Left are the Nazis. The Nazis were Lefties. They don’t like being reminded that, throughout history, Left wingers have been the thugs, the vicious, nasty, fascist scum – and they always will be.

      I gave up R4 Today in ~2015. Being angry at their bias, lies and spin is not a good way to start one’s day.

        I listen to it as it makes me angry enough to get out of bed and washed and dressed. Elsewise I’d probably just lay about all day!

          Ah, that rings a bell – I too used be angered out of bed & hit Off button.

          Now I choose between bed & breakfast
