Infowars YouTube Channel Gets Strike for School-Shooting Conspiracy Video

· The Alex Jones channel on Youtube received a strike from the company after violating the website's terms of service
· The violation was related to a video called "David Hogg Can't Remember His Lines in TV Interview" which accused activist & school shooting survivor David Hogg of being a "crisis actor" hired by ??? the government ??? (I think) to encourage anti-gun sentiment. The video was removed but not before it reached #1 on the trending page
· Channels that get 3 strikes in 3 months are shut down by Youtube
· Last year Youtube said it had updated its algorithm to prioritize news from trusted sources. They plan to increase their safety & moderation team to 10k by the end of this year
