Alex Jones, after being kicked off Youtube, has found a new home: Banned.video. And the view-counter over there seems very suspicious: it shows each video having thousands of views. And each time I refresh a video, no matter which one it is, it jumps by a few - way more than when you refresh a video on Youtube. (Here and here are two videos I found suspicious.)
Furthermore, after Infowars got kicked off YouTube, they tried using other sites such as Briteon and Bitchute, which both show their views at most in the low hundreds (barring the one or two videos linked to by the Drudge Report, which could send the video's views into the millions.) Also, considering where talking about Infowars, there's no reason to assume they wouldn't make things up to appear more popular than they are.
However, it is possible that my suspicions may be unfounded, as it does match the amount of views they used to get on YouTube when their official channel was up, or perhaps it's merely a result of their embedded videos on their site autoplaying (Infowars.com has a very high Alexa and Similarweb rating, so their site seems to be quite popular).
So, my question is, is Banned.video's view-counter accurate? Are Alex and Infowars back to getting thousands of views? (And, it's not, how are they inflating the numbers?)
