Yaron and Amy: “Alex Jones, Arbitrary-info Wars, and ‘Community Standards’,” TODAY at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT)

Facebook and YouTube have banned Alex Jones. Should they have? Is Twitter next? Are social media Rules/Community Standards creating a slippery slope toward a Culture of Censorship? These questions and more are what I plan to discuss with Yaron today. See Program Notes, below for stories, etc., I plan to discuss with Yaron.

The show will be broadcast live via streaming video on Yaron’s YouTube Channel as well as on his show’s Facebook page here.
