That was at the exact same time Twitter announced it was banning Alex Jones:
Today, we permanently suspended @realalexjones and @infowars from Twitter and Periscope. We took this action based on new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ past violations. https://t.co/gckzUAV8GL

Was CNN able to do an entire article and upload to their site in less than a minute?
However, CNN wasn’t the only outlet to run the story almost immediately.

Twitter has banned Alex Jones for violating its abusive behavior policy. The network was the last holdout after other tech platforms blocked him. https://t.co/O2mJvoe9qz

No Conservative outlets, including Fox and The Wallstreet Journal, were notified early by Twitter.
This calls leftist medias role in the banning into further question. Alex Jones confronted not only CNN’s Jack Dorsey but also CNN’s Oliver Darcy and that led to his banning.
