It’s been a wild week for InfoWars’s DC bureau chief Jerome Corsi. On Tuesday, Corsi, a proponent of the QAnon and Obama birther conspiracies, was riding high after being printed in USA Today, the country’s highest-circulating paper. Today, he was kicked off YouTube for life.
Terminations usually require three “strikes,” each strike removing features from a channel and putting it in worse standing until they resolve several months later, assuming no further strikes are given.

We’ve reached out to YouTube for information on what the final straw was.
