Who the Hell is Alex Jones? Am I Missing Something Here?

I’ve heard of the guy. But, I have no idea why he’s popular or why his ass got banned from social media. Someone explain it to me while I get drunk here on the beach and discuss the issue of free speech.

The live feed got cut off abruptly so I didn’t get to end the broadcast in a formal manner. Not sure if YouTube shut me down for talking about old Alex or if it was because I got an incoming call.
