Guys I am a little perplexed by everyone responses and indignation.
Don't get me wrong, I think it sucks that youtube sensors it's own site but so do most on the internet, including infowars. You can't find cows on skateboards there you know.
Since when did youtube become a public service outlet?
It is a private company controlling it's content that's all. ATS does the same for its own reasons.
Sure it's very convenient, but we are not entitled to anything we want, and it isn't internet censorship. Internet censorship would be if the Alex Jones sites were taken down, all this does is decentralize information not withdraw it, and all it means is one has to use a search engine to find information instead of simply going to youtube.
Why do you think Anonymous isn't going after this? Because there is a difference between a private company managing its product and a third party being able to control its product like scientology did.
In any case as indignant you may be, please don't also be surprised.

I agree they should not ban AJ, no one should be silenced. I also believe him to be part of project Mocking Bird. His goal is to create FEAR. Watch this video of an interview he did with Peter Joseph creater of ZEITGEIST. This will change most peoples mind on what AJ is realy about. If he did not serve a purpose for the government he would not be on national radio. He would not get major corporate advertisers like he does. His goal is to help create hate and fear in my opinion.

I think it's really important that conspiracy theorists find an alternative source that hasn't been bought out.

I don't see it as YouTUBE eliminating free speech, I see it as YouTUBE getting rid of videos that are nothing more than unpaid commercials and/or product promotions.
I mean, why would anyone want to pay for advertising on YouTUBE when everyone else is posting videos promoting their products for free?
If someone were using my website to hawk their goods, I'd probably do the same thing.
