“Infowars” host Alex Jones arrives at the Travis County Courthouse in Austin, Texas. Jones filed a motion Friday, July 20, 2018, to dismiss a defamation lawsuit filed by families of some of the 26 people killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

Apple has wiped iTunes and its podcasting app virtually clean of content by Alex Jones, in one of the most aggressive moves by streaming services and technology companies against the conspiracy theorist and owner of the right-wing media platform Infowars.
As of Sunday, just one program provided by Infowars remained, RealNews with David Knight. But the decision to completely pull other shows, including “The Alex Jones Show” and “War Room,” represents a more severe response than those taken by other companies in recent days limiting Jones’s reach. Last week Spotify removed several episodes of “The Alex Jones Show,” following similar moves by YouTube and Facebook the week before.
