Youtube wants to act like a publisher and wants to keep the protection of a platform. Youtube can either declare its a Publisher and be able to regulate content but also be liable for that content. Or they can declare themselves a platform allow for freedom of speech and have protection from liability; not both.

Here is a real criticism of Trump. His election was won on the internet through a grassroots campaign, that is why we are seeing a massive crack down. He has done very little to protect the very means that got in power.

The Hill, Center: "That ad presents unfounded accusations that former Vice President Joe Biden offered military aid to Ukraine in exchange for the firing of a prosecutor that was investigating a company tied to his son Hunter." I guess I didn't see Biden literally say that was the case, then. I guess I'm just crazy.

For some reason YouTube believes I need to see more Bloomberg ads because I swear at least one out of every 5 ads I get on YouTube is telling me how Bloomberg worked his way up from the middle class and is going to beat Trump.

it's a private company, they can do as they please. if you hate it, then you'll support categorizing internet as a utility. then these sites will be regulated. but til then, this is completely legal and checks out A-OK.

And who is surprised by this? Pro-Censorship left leaning organizations censoring right-wing (and left-wing) opposition. There is a reason why freedom of speech is part of the FIRST amendment.

they were probably not approved for copywrite infringement of music, or for spelling and using grammar like a Chick-fil-A cow

If the ads can be proven to violate policy, they shouldn’t be running. Trump’s campaign frequently includes blatant lies and conspiracy theories in their ads, and those should be taken down.
