YouTube suspends One America News for a week over Covid-19 misinformation

YouTube has suspended right-leaning news outlet One America News for a week for posting videos containing what they have called ’misinformation related to the coronavirus’. YouTube has also blocked OAN’s earnings from its videos, although OAN can reapply for the YouTube program that allows it to monetize content.

Youtube suspends all truth and promotes propaganda. They are doing exactly what the Nazis did.

While they're at it Vox and Buzzfeed should be thrown out as well.

"[Youtube] said it has manually reviewed and removed 200,000 videos related to dangerous or misleading Covid-19 information since February 2020, including for example a widely condemned viral video published by rightwing media outlet Breitbart featuring dubious claims from people identifying themselves as doctors, telling people not to wear masks." ~Guardian They identified as doctors because they WERE doctors and at the time a consensus had not yet been reached on masks yet Youtube took it upon themselves to assume WHO got it right when WHO initially told us it didn't spread between humans while it was spreading between humans per all the contact tracing data we have.

Question is who decides that certain information is misinformation, whereas other information is considered information. YouTube is, unfortunately, a joke in that regard. Just as Twitter and Facebook. "We don't like this!" "Remove it!!" The easy thing is to leave info up and let people think for themselves, but nooo..we can't have that. Stüpid.

OAN can say nonsense. That is their right. YouTube is a private company (part of Google) and they don't have to publish it. That is their right.

Polling suggests Biden only won certain swing states because of the MSM’s suppression of stories on Bidens corruption, now they remove one of the few obscure sources that actual covered it as soon as they start raking in the views. It’s obvious what this is. Anyone cheering this on can’t complain about “fascism”

Any media that censors opinion or claims of others is restricting freedom of others. They should therefore be boycotted. That is the only power the people have yet rarely exercise it!

Look it's trumps own news Network of course it's all going to be lies. Pretty much everything trump says is a lie and basically anyone associated with him SHOULD NOT BE TRUSTED and for good reason.

Not with the far right propaganda at all. But... This is dangerous.... Big tech needs to be broken up now! No one should have a monopoly on information and truth.

Thanks YouTube for not allowing hucksters to use your platform to kill people for profit. I’m sure this will infuriate the gullible people that prefer nonsense to fact based news but who cares They can go to plenty of other sources that take their cues from Vlad Putin and the wing nut right.

Big shock there. The "news" channel Trump watches second most to Fox just got kicked off YouTube for lying. Do Trump supporters believe they really were lying, probably not and they will probably make up another conspiracy theory about it tomorrow. It must get hard trying too remember every fake story and who is behind them all.

Even the news voice characterisation is misleading. OAN is a lot of things, but it is not "far right". Give me a break. Do words not have meaning anymore?

Suspend for a week? How about purge it from the servers forever?! It’s straight propaganda. Goebbels would be proud.

If that's the case then trump should be arrested for lying about the virus to millions of Americans. He is responsible for thousands of lives.

My Alert said “far-right news network”, but that’s not the title of the post or article. Why that label? Shouldn’t that be used for the extremes?
