Alan MacLeod of Mintpress News joined Scott to talk about how he and several other prominent critics of Israel’s war in Gaza had their X accounts banned last week without notice. The accounts have since been restored, with Elon Musk promising to investigate, but Scott and MacLeod point out that the suppression of voices critical of Washington’s preferred geopolitical narrative is nothing new.
