YouTube three strikes rule

A channel that receives three strikes from YouTube within three months is banned from the platform.

Conspiracy theory outlet Infowars is one strike away from being banned from YouTube.

The channel said it received an alert from YouTube on Tuesday morning, saying Infowars received a second strike on a video about the Parkland, Fla., high school shooting and will temporarily be unable to upload new content.

“This is the second strike applied to your account within three months. As a result, you’re unable to post new content to YouTube for two weeks,” the alert said. “If there are no further issues, the ability to upload will be automatically restored after this two week period.”

Infowars’s second strike comes as social media giants like YouTube and Twitter grapple with how to handle extremist or conspiracy theory content.

A channel that receives three strikes from YouTube within three months is banned from the platform. While Infowars has several other ways to promote its videos – including an online radio show, its own website, Twitter and Facebook – a ban would cut Infowars off from its YouTube subscribers, which number more than 2 million.

CNN reported last week that the channel, which is run by host and owner Alex Jones, had received its first strike for promoting a conspiracy theory about the Parkland shooting.

Infowars has referred to the strikes from YouTube as a “CNN lobbying campaign.”

The first strike was related to a video targeting Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, titled “David Hogg Can’t Remember His Lines In TV Interview,” and suggested Hogg and others were paid “crisis actors” instead of actual students who survived the shooting.

World Cup 2018: Lionel Messi hits hat-trick as Argentina hammer Haiti before heading to Russia | The Independent

Argentina showed once again how reliant they are on Lionel Messi as the Barcelona forward scored a hat-trick in their 4-0 World Cup warm-up win over Haiti on Tuesday. With Javier Mascherano making his 143rd appearance to put him one ahead of Javier Zanetti as Argentina’s most capped player, Messi got the opener from the penalty spot after 17 minutes.

FIFA 2018 Top 3 Players

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN

  1. NEYMAR
    The most expensive player in the world, Neymar recently headed for Paris in a move that shocked the football world. While still slightly below Messi and Ronaldo, Neymar is in the upper echelons of the talent-packed history of Brazilian football. His 92 Pace makes him one of the fastest players out there, and his 94 Dribbling is reminiscent of Ronaldinho at his peak.

FC BARCELONA

  1. LIONEL MESSI
    In a constant battle for best in the world (and of all-time), it’s hard to say anything about Messi without stretching into hyperbole. His 95 Dribbling is the highest, and very few defenders are able to even come close to stopping him when he’s playing his best. Combined with 89 Pace and 90 Shooting, Messi may usually start on the wing but he always finds a way to get in front of goal—where he rarely misses.

REAL MADRID

  1. CRISTIANO RONALDO
    There are few things that Ronaldo cannot do on a pitch, and few attacking positions in which he won’t excel. His 93 Shooting is evidenced by the unreal number of goals he’s scored in the past few seasons, and Ronaldo’s 90 Pace and 90 Dribbling make him virtually untouchable when in top form. Sometimes deployed as a forward, Ronaldo can dance into the box and dispatch the ball into the net without skipping a beat. He is probably at his best on the left wing, where he can create chances for teammates, or as he does more often, cut inside and lash the ball past a helpless goalkeeper.

Cristiano Ronaldo World Cup 2018 hat-trick goal: Portugal star makes history with stunning free kick against Spain | The Independent

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a late free-kick to complete a remarkable hat-trick in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Spain on Friday night. The Real Madrid man had scored twice in the first-half of the Group B match, but the reigning European champions looked to be headed to a gruelling defeat thanks to Nacho’s wonder-strike midway through the second-half. However with time running out, Spain conceded a free-kick in a dangerous position when Gerard Pique fouled Ronaldo twenty-five yards out from goal.
