YouTube has announced it will remove videos criticizing Joe Biden’s alleged victory and reporting on election “fraud or errors,” instead promoting the content of corporate media outlets and fact checkers. Per YouTube, its December 9th decision was guided by its “main goal” of “connecting people with authoritative information, while also limiting the reach of misinformation and removing harmful content.”
In reality, however, the platform will likely axe a host of pro-Trump accounts, as it has done before.
Specifically, the platform vowed to crack down on any content that exposes “widespread fraud or errors” incurred during the 2020 election:
“We also disallow content alleging widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of a historical U.S. Presidential election. However in some cases, that has meant allowing controversial views on the outcome or process of counting votes of a current election as election officials have worked to finalize counts.
Yesterday was the safe harbor deadline for the U.S. Presidential election and enough states have certified their election results to determine a President-elect. Given that, we will start removing any piece of content uploaded today (or anytime after) that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, in line with our approach towards historical U.S. Presidential elections. For example, we will remove videos claiming that a Presidential candidate won the election due to widespread software glitches or counting errors. We will begin enforcing this policy today, and will ramp up in the weeks to come.”
Youtube is a collaborator in a coup attempt.
We’re gonna need a bigger helicopter.
Is YT owned by Google now or FacePlant? Doesn’t matter, they’re all the same evil hive mind, but just curious.
How will youtube monitor everything?
Surprised we made it this far...
“Democracy Dies in Darkness”
youtube is owned by google.
Isn’t there an alternative service that’s now growing in response to You Tube’s censorship?
Youtube is pretty much becoming an “entertainment and howto” channel. I can get political videos at a lot of other sites.
Note to self - double monthly contribution to FREE REPUBLIC....
Yep. Bitchute is one. There are others but that is the one I remember off the top of my head.
All COnservative posters can post a link on their videos. If you don’t see me any more go to rumble.com/(user)
It’s time for YouTube to go the way of FOX news.
What would our Founding Fathers have done about a corrupt media and ‘social’ sites?
Here’s a chance for their ancestors to show the world what WE have. A Republic if we can keep it.
