Google bans two websites from its ad platform over protest articles

Google has banned two sites from its advertising platform after reports emerged suggesting it was profiting from articles pushing unverified claims about the BLM protests. The two sites include ZeroHedge and The Federalist. Following the action, the sites will not be able to generate revenue from any adverts served by Google Ads. A spokesperson said the policies violated pertained to race.

Keep on pushing lefties... The more you take off the mask and reveal how much you despise free speech and demand totalitarian control of expression in public forums the faster ‘normal people’ will wake up to the need to divest from big-tech.

Yeah, that's not cool. Very Authoritarian of Google, deciding what information is acceptable for the public.

Well every left wing site in existence benefits from false claims on blm already, and I’m willing to bet these two sites actually said something true.

Google's a company, it can do what it wants. "But it's huge, monopolistic and almost inescapable!" Well, thanks for making the case for strict antitrust laws for me.

People keep missing the point here. Google isn't just censoring content on their platforms. They are using demonetization threats to extort OTHER platforms into censorship as well. Note that both incidents involved the comments section of those sites. Not the actual content or articles! In other words. If you don't censor your users, Google will take away your ad revenue!
