San Francisco: Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that the decision to remove the “Infowars” podcasts by US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from App Store was not part of a coordinated attempt by multiple Silicon Valley companies to de-platform Jones and deny him a voice, the media reported. “I’ve never even had a conversation about Alex Jones with any other tech companies,” The Verge quoted Cook as saying in an interview with Vice News Tonight on Tuesday. Several tech giants including Google-owned YouTube, Apple, Facebook, Spotify and Twitter have either removed or restricted Jones’ activities on their platforms for promoting hate speech. “We make our decisions independently and I think that’s important. Honestly. I’ve had no conversation. And to my knowledge, no one at Apple has,” Cook added. (IANS)
