Alex Jones & YouTube

As you are aware, I think Alex Jones is a clickbait chasing problem, prepared to promote whatever bizarre idea will get him his tiny paranoid audience.  But when I saw this about how YouTube is sanctioning him, all I could think was, "What about the Holocaust denier videos?"  My wife spends a lot of time watching documentaries about the Holocaust, and inevitably some of the suggestions YouTube makes are Holocaust denier videos.  These are promoting a grossly false "history" for what are clearly hateful reasons.  Yet YouTube isn't doing anything about those.
