Apple Podcasts, one of the largest and most popular podcast directory service on the planet, has de-listed four out of five of Alex Jones’s Infowars shows — not just specific episodes but the entire shows — for violating the terms of service against hate speech.

Why did Apple — and fast followers Google, Facebook, and Spotify — hit the delete key? Does it have anything to do with content policies, freedom of speech, censorship, companies vs. governments, or are these companies so big and powerful they're indistinguishable from governments?
