The Wall Street Journal: Facebook hits conspiracy theorist Alex Jones with 30-day ban

Facebook Inc. said it banned controversial radio host Alex Jones for 30 days for repeatedly posting content that violated the social network’s community guidelines, and has removed four videos posted to pages maintained by him and the InfoWars site he operates.

The ban doesn’t apply to InfoWars itself. Jones, known for propagating conspiracy theories, won’t be able to publish content under his personal profile or to any pages in which he is an administrator, the company said Friday. He also won’t be able to message, comment or post anywhere else on the social-media site.
