YouTube apologizes for top trending conspiracy video that claimed Parkland survivor is an actor
Fox News.com ^ | 2/21/2018 | Chris Ciaccia

After appearing as the No. 1 trending video for hours, YouTube finally removed a video that suggested one of the high school students who survived the Parkland, Fl. shooting last week was an actor.

In a statement to Fox News, a YouTube spokesperson said: "This video should never have appeared in Trending. Because the video contained footage from an authoritative news source, our system misclassified it. As soon as we became aware of the video, we removed it from Trending and from YouTube for violating our policies. We are working to improve our systems moving forward.”

The title of the now-deleted video was "DAVID HOGG THE ACTOR..." The clip appears to show footage where Hogg was interviewed about a video he recorded in Redondo Beach, Calif.

In actuality, the video resurfaces content from summer 2017 when Hogg was interviewed about how a friend of his got into an argument with a lifeguard.

The video was uploaded by a user named Mike M. and was viewed more than 216,000 times prior to its removal.

YouTube responds:

SEIG HEIL! SEIG HEIL! SEIG HEIL! SEIG HEIL!

Fox News says pay no attention to the Nazi propagandists, including us.

SEIG HEIL! SEIG HEIL!

Since FReepers caught the Charlottesville crisis actors within hours, all situations need to be assessed and the personalities vetted.

Reminds me of how every several months for 8 years Big Media would proclaim that some outrageous (but not TOO high) percentage of Americans “erroneously” believed their god the Fraud was a muslim.

And then half a dozen or so here would respond, “Obama isn’t a muslim, he only worships himself”.

The person that wrote this article is being silly. YouTube is not journalism, its a public commons for discussion. People need to accept that some YouTube videos will have bogus info in them. Over time a viewer can learn what channels one can trust. Trying to be the arbiter of truth for everything discussed is a fool's errand and will lead to pissing off many of your users when you get it wrong.

So, YouTube is ‘fact checking’ the videos it hosts?

QUESTION:

WHY IS YOUTUBE PULLING ANY AND EVERY VIDEO OF DAVID HOGG DESCRIBING THE SHOOTING TO THE REPORTER WHO IS COACHING HIM?

WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY?

I know why.. The Deep State controls YouTube and they are trying to BURY THE TRUTH.

Have you been following this story? This David Hogg kid, went to parkland and is a survivor from the mass shooting last week. He is with the theatre department. He went on CNN and and spoke. Turns out his father is a anti-Trump former FBI agent. Then it turns out CNN had him rehearse his interview. Here is the outtakes. He’s another one of the left’s bad actors. https://twitter.com/DCCogan/status/966188501883551744

Was he a survivor of that ordeal or is he making it up. Was this person an actual Parkland student or not?

There is another video of him interviewing classmates WHILE IN THE CLOSET with them, asking their views on gun control. This kid’s dad is an FBI agent, and his mom is an ex CNN reporter. There are several crisis actors popping up in this event, not just Hogg.

Watch this video. His whole interview with CNN was rehearsed. He kept forgetting his lines. This video was removed from YouTube, but found this one on Twitter. https://twitter.com/DCCogan/status/966188501883551744

My changes show what an astute and sensible comment yours is!

The problem we face is that our enemies on the Left don't see it that way at all.

They want to be the arbiters of truth on the Internet, the same way they did it in the traditional media, which has become a laughing stock for any thinking person who can see right through it.

But like liberals going from a blue state to a red state, or locusts going from one crop to the next, they are bent on consuming the Internet for their own statist uses.
