  • VIDEO: Should YouTube Set Up a Legacy Media Filter?

    VIDEO Of all the things that YouTube does that irritates YouTubers the most, one of the worst is the way they shove Legacy Media channels down our throats. It's like they are flooding the zone of the search results on anything that is in the news with Legacy Media at the expense of YouTubers. Sort of like using Legacy Media as a cloaking device to shield YouTubers from each other. The solution to this is to set up a Legacy Media filter in their search function. That way, people who really do want to see Legacy Media coverage can...

    Midland Texas Officer Zack Owens was shot multiple times in the hand and arm when he fought off the mass-shooting by now deceased suspect, Seth Ator, shot dead by responding officers. Flying glass shards also entered the eye of Officer Owens, an injury soon requiring ophtalmic surgery. Officer Owens is a huge fan of the popular YouTube channels of Dr. Matt Carriker, a Texas video creator and veterinarian for VetRanch and OffTheRanch, channels with over 10 million video followers. Learning that the injured officer is a dedicated follower, Dr. Carriker drove 10 hours through the night to pay a surprise...

    Google's video site YouTube has been fined $170 million to settle allegations it collected children's personal data without their parents' consent. The Federal Trade Commission fined Google $136 million and the company will pay an additional $34 million to New York state to resolve similar allegations. The fine is the largest the agency has yet leveled against Google, although it is tiny compared to the $5 billion fine the FTC imposed against Facebook this year for privacy violations. The FTC has been investigating YouTube for the way it handles the data of kids under the age of 13. Young children...

    YouTube has just banned a 14-year-old girl for a video in which she spoke truth and reason about the LGBT agenda and its activists. The video was swiftly removed and her channel banned under the guise of “hate speech violations.” NewsBusters reports: "Soph, known on Twitter as @sewernugget, has been penalized by YouTube previously with suspension for 'dangerous' humor and poking fun at leftist orthodoxy. With approximately 1 million subscribers before she was shut down, she rose to fame for poking fun at topics such as radical Islam, climate change, and pedophilia among Hollywood elites." How can YouTube justify shutting...

    A paralegal at the New Jersey U.S. Attorney’s Office used government computers to identify people who were possibly helping authorities and posted a video on YouTube of her gang member son’s co-defendant talking to investigators, according to court filings. Tawanna Hilliard pleaded not guilty at her arraignment Tuesday in Brooklyn federal court to an indictment charging her with offenses, including witness tampering, obstruction of justice and obtaining information from a government computer, according to officials. Hilliard’s son, Tyquan, a member of the 5-9 Brims set of the Bloods street gang serving a 10 year prison term for robbery in New...

    Search for “climate change” on YouTube and before long you’ll likely find a video that denies it exists. In fact, when it comes to shaping the online conversation around climate change, a new study suggests that deniers and conspiracy theorists might hold an edge over those believing in science. Researchers found evidence that most YouTube videos relating to climate change oppose the scientific consensus that it’s primarily caused by human activities. The study highlights the key role of social media use in the spread of scientific misinformation. And it suggests scientists and those who support them need to be more...

    August 7, 2019 (NewsBusters) — The left has no problem with hiding behind activist teenagers, but will scapegoat a right-wing one if she criticizes them. YouTube, Google's sister company, deplatformed a 14-year-old conservative girl after she made a video criticizing Pride Month. Her channel has been completely banned from YouTube. Soph, known on Twitter as @sewernugget, has been penalized by YouTube previously with suspension for "dangerous" humor and poking fun at leftist orthodoxy. With approximately 1 million subscribers before she was shut down, she rose to fame for poking fun at topics such as radical Islam, climate change, and pedophilia...

    As we have been saying for years now, Big Tech’s brazen anti-Christian and anti-Conservative thought policing must stop. Earlier this week, YouTube rightfully came under fire when the proprietors of a faith-based ministry for military veterans were barred from running an ad for their foundation because it contained just one unacceptable keyword: “Christian.” According to Chad Robichaux, a U.S. Marine veteran and founder of the Mighty Oaks Foundation, his marketing team recently attempted to run the ad for his “Mighty Oaks Show,” which features interviews with vets and Christian content geared toward their unique strengths and struggles after service. But,...

    any expressions of Christian belief have been censored by YouTube, which is owned by Google. But on Tuesday, even the word “Christian” ran afoul of the social-media giant. Chad Robichaux reported an ad for his ministry to veterans was rejected for including the word “Christian.” Robichaux was instructed to “please remove the unacceptable content to continue.” We ran a @YouTube ad for our veterans ministry outreach for those in need & it was denied for the word “Christian”. Insane! #Censorship should terrify every American; conservative or liberal, Christian or Muslim. This bias is a dangerous course for America. @MightyOaksFDN

    A year after quitting his job reviewing some of the most gruesome content the internet has to offer, Lester prays every week that the images he saw can be erased from his mind. First as a contractor for YouTube and then for Twitter, he worked on a high-up floor of a mall in this traffic-clogged Asian capital, where he spent up to nine hours each day weighing questions about the details in those images. He made decisions about whether a child's genitals were being touched accidentally or on purpose, or whether a knife slashing someone's neck depicted a real-life killing...

    Before the Senate on Tuesday, Dennis Prager, the founder of the conservative behemoth PragerU and its affiliated YouTube Channels, railed against the video-sharing service for restricting access to roughly one-fifth of his video content for being “mature contents” considered inappropriate for younger audiences. Prager testified that YouTube routinely suppresses conservative perspectives such as his on its website and bars “restricted mode” users from viewing roughly twenty percent of the 320 videos uploaded by his channel. Censored content includes videos on the Ten Commandments and the history of Israel, according to Prager. “We have repeatedly asked Google why our videos are...

"Officers and London Ambulance Service attended. A woman in her 30s had suffered serious injuries and was sadly pronounced dead at the scene," the statement continued. Authorities added that "at this early stage, there have been no arrests." While Hartridge was not identified by police due to the wishes of the victim's family, The Guardian reportedly identified the woman as Hartridge. The publication...
