Big Tech is now an extension of the corporate-controlled press.
Both institutions are working in tandem to help the Democrat Party.
And YouTube censored a video to save one sinking Democrat
California Governor Gavin Newsom is in a world of hurt.
Polls show that the recall effort against him is a toss-up.
And if Newsom is recalled, the frontrunner to replace him is Republican talk show host and political commentator Larry Elder.
Democrats cannot risk the California Governorship falling into the hands of a stalwart conservative, so they’re pulling out all the stops to boost Newsom.
The Los Angeles Times has written close to a dozen hit pieces on Elder inside of a month, and other publications are doing the same.
But now Big Tech is getting in on the act by censoring YouTube videos critical of Newsom.
“Oscar-winning filmmaker Errol Webber released a takedown of California Governor Gavin Newsom. YouTube predictably responded by covering it in warnings. Webber, who ran for congress in California last year, released a scorching video called, ‘100 Reasons To Recall Gavin Newsom,’ a nonstop takedown of chaos in California amid the governorship of Newsom. The video’s description explained: ‘The California Recall Gubernatorial Election is upon us, and Gavin Newsom is freaking out. Here are 100 Reasons to Recall Gavin Newsom.’” Before accessing the video, however, users must click through two separate warning labels that indicate the video ‘may be inappropriate’ and ‘has been identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.’”
This is one of the dirty games YouTube plays to stop the dissemination of counter-narrative political videos.
Conservatives constantly discover that their videos have arbitrarily been put into “private mode,” which means people can no longer search for the video or view it.
Slapping censorship labels on the Newsom is one way to deter people from watching it.
Content restrictions also mean that advertising revenue on the video could be limited, if any exists at all.
Webber said of the censorship:
“YouTube has been cracking down on my video, 100 Reasons to Recall Gavin Newsom. They’re doing everything they can to stop people from being able to watch it.”
YouTube responded to the criticism, but gave a mealy-mouthed answer as to why the video was censored.
A spokesman for the company said:
“Sometimes videos that do not violate our Community Guidelines may not be appropriate for everyone on YouTube. Our policies apply equally to everyone and in this case, we age-restricted the video in accordance with our violent or graphic content policies.”
But this is nonsense.
Corporate press images of the carnage unfolding in Afghanistan are allowed on the platform without any sensitive material warning labels to ward off viewers.
