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.

Exactly! I'm glad someone is paying attention.

How are they wanting to act like publishers?

Trumps campaign has a history of using unlicensed music, I wouldn't be surprised if these were copyright claims.

Especially, considering they are more aligned with Cronyism, than the free enterprise system. These guys have had government backing since day one.

We need to bring back Rooseveltian (Teddy) era liberal Republicanism. Bust the trusts!

I would say the bigger issue, with the big social media companies atleast, is that the government is failing to enforce the legislation surrounding their designation as a 'platform'. Though the monopoly issue is definitely something that needs to be addressed across multiple industries at this point.

Did you tell your colleague that the right won 2016 despite the left rigging the game?

Still my favorite image is the Hillary supporter with the sign saying 'it's not rigged, you're just losing." I really want to know her opinion now.

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.

As an avid Trump supporter I can totally agree with you on that.

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.

They are technically correct. Biden actually threatened to withhold aid that had already been offered if they didn't fire the prosecutor. He wasn't bribing them, you see. He was extorting them.

however that was the position of the us, eu and imf. Biden was just the messenger.

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.

I get religious ads myself, pragerU, bible apps, homeopathic medicine sometimes. Probably because I watch atheist content, don't know why the google algorithms decide I need god.

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.

Google's transparency it's to both not show what exactly was banned, not say what specifically it did to get banned. Clear as frosted glass, it seems to me.

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.
