Journalist Tim Pool claimed a video he produced about alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella was blocked by YouTube.
Pool posted a screenshot of the notification YouTube gave him revealing that his video titled Democrats formalize impeachment, but whistleblower identity exposes this as a political hit job was forced to remain listed as private, meaning no users can access the video.
The video, which was posted on Oct. 31, gathered 281,779 views before being blocked by the platform. YouTube, whose parent company is Google, confirmed the decision to block the video with a manual review that confirmed the algorithm's decision.
Pool claimed YouTube was following Facebooks lead and censoring posts with Ciaramellas name, tweeting, "Welcome to the dystopian nightmare, where big tech is colluding to censor newsworthy and public information."

Ciaramella was first named in a report from RealClearInvestigations. The 33-year-old career CIA analyst worked under the Obama and Trump administrations. Under President Barack Obama, he was the Ukraine director on the National Security Council.
He was briefly acting senior director for European and Russian affairs before moving to his current position as a deputy national intelligence officer for Russia and Eurasia on the National Intelligence Council under President Trumps director of national intelligence, as the Washington Examiner previously reported.
Ciaramella has a close relationship with several members of the Obama administration, including ties to Joe Biden.

The real problem is the lack of Conservative platforms.
YouTube is a private company, they can do whatever they want! /sarcasm

Funny though, Ma Bell (a private company) never ‘blocked’ any numbers I ever wanted to call ... /truth

It is time for Trump and the Republicans to make this a major issue. Trump should look at what executive or legal action could be taken. The Senate should hold immediate hearing and drag these big tech CEO’s in front of them. The Republicans should also force the Democrats to condemn this and support immediate legislation to address, or force them to open support censorship. The election is only a year from now and we cannot allow this issue to go unaddressed.
Where’s OANN, The Blaze, Newsmax, etc. Investigating Mr. Ciaramella? I know the MSM’s won’t, but we don’t have to rely on them anymore.
So are they a platform or a publisher?
Can’t have it both ways, Google/Youtube.
“The Republicans should also force the Democrats...”
Who are we to question the Algorithm? The Algorithm loves us and provides for us. We are all kept safe and comfy under the protective wing of the Mighty Algorithm!
By the time this is all over the MSM will try to convince us that he never existed!
“To determine the true rulers of any society, all you must do is ask yourself this question: Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize?”
Executive order repealing CDA § 230:
No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.
Not good enough. They need to be treated as utilities and common carries. No censorship of legal postings.
Which ones, tho? Facebook, Google, Twitter.. Okay. Now what about Twitch? Snap? Tumbler? Or any of the others that will show up afterwards.
The CDA was put together by the Clintons to protect their cronies. Begin dismantling it by making Facebook, Google, and everyone else what they are: publishers. The way those corps are acting, this is the most logical step. And to do that, the CDA needs to lose the safe harbor.
Those which gain a large enough of a market share that they could be classified as being a natural monopoly.
There will always be the threat of the “Next Big Thing” and we’ll just end up dealing with monopolies over and over and over. Rescind 230. Force them all to be publishers or platforms. Then let the chips fall where they may.
