    YouTube Cuts Off Conservative News Org’s Ad Revenue Without Explanation

    BULENT KILIC/AFP/Getty24 Aug 2018

    YouTube demonetized the account of the conservative news site Western Journal, accusing the account owners of “duplicating content,” although the Google subsidiary declined to specify what material in particular violated the video platform’s terms of service.

    “Youtube demonetized our account and told us the reason was ‘duplication,” said Shaun Hair, executive editor of the Western Journal.

    “We had zero copyright strikes and zero community guideline strikes. Not even a recent warning. Youtube has on three occasions declined to explain or even give a single example of why duplication is other than generic language about copyright rules.”

    The Western Journal has previously exposed big tech’s biases through original reporting. In July, analyses commissioned by the site revealed that GOP representatives had been hit by massive declines in Facebook interactions since the social network’s algorithm changes in January. The Western Journal also found that the algorithm change disproportionately impacted conservative websites.

    YouTube was among the many Silicon Valley companies to censor Alex Jones and InfoWars earlier this month, deleting the radio host’s channel, which had more than 2 million subscribers and many years’ worth of video content.

    The video sharing platform has also censored conservative education project Prager University, putting its informational videos behind “restricted mode” filters, which limit the channel’s visibility to YouTube users. This resulted in PragerU suing the platform.
    Other users affected by YouTube’s censorship and sanctions have included Dave Rubin, Paul Joseph Watson, Sky Williams, Steven Crowder, and Diamond and Silk.

    YouTube has also banned popular anti-SJW commentator Bearing, gun training demonstrations, and criticism of CNN.

    The video sharing platform recently announced it will fund 50 original shows in 2019, which will be released to users who pay a monthly fee for the site’s YouTube Premium service.

    'He's Flat-Out Lying': Founder of Pro-Life Group Blasts Twitter CEO for Banning Organization's Ads

    Sep 01, 2018 // 1:58pm As seen on Tucker Carlson Tonight

    The founder of a pro-life advocacy group called out Twitter's CEO Friday on Tucker Carlson Tonight for censoring her organization on the social media platform.

    Live Action
    founder Lila Rose said that her group has been "totally banned" from advertising on Twitter for the past three years.

    The group's Twitter account has close to 70,000 followers, and its Facebook page has more than 2 million followers.
    At the same time as her group is being shadow-banned, Rose said, pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood are being permitted to advertise on Twitter.

    Shadow banning, or censoring, on social media platforms has recently become a prevalent issue among conservative voices.
    Twitter came under fire after Vice News reported that Republican Party chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and other conservative Republican officials did not appear in the social media giant's auto-populated search results.

    Rose said on Friday that her group is using other social media platforms to advertise.
    "Ultimately, Twitter has sided with the abortion industry. That's what's clear," she said.
    She added that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is "flat-out lying" in his statements saying his platform doesn't discriminate based on viewpoints.

    Dorsey said last month on Fox News Radio’s Benson & Harf that he wants his company to be an environment in which people feel that they can freely express themselves, regardless of political views.
    "He's lying to people, and we are Exhibit A," Rose said.


    A short thread addressing some issues folks are encountering as a result of our conversational health work, specifically the perception of “shadowbanning” based on content or ideology. It suffices to say we have a lot more work to do to earn people’s trust on how we work.

    To be clear, our behavioral ranking doesn’t make judgements based on political views or the substance of tweets. We recently publicly testified to Congress on this topic
