Published

On Friday, September 8th, the Jefferson Davis Monument in downtown Greensboro, North Carolina, was vandalized.

The monument was spray-painted with graffiti reading “Tear Them Down.” According to the Triad City Beat, Greensboro PD Detective EA Early said that a passerby called-in the graffiti at around 9:30 a.m.

At around 11:00 a.m., Pete D’Abrosca captured a brief Periscope before the graffiti was removed by city employees:

By 1:00 p.m., the graffiti had been cleaned, and the monument was restored to its original form. Kudos to the City of Greensboro for perhaps the speediest work in government history.

YouTube Temporarily SUSPENDS One America News Network’s Channel for Violating “COVID-19 Misinformation” Policy

What a crock.

Published

YouTube has temporarily suspended and demonetized the conservative One America News Network (most often referred to as OAN or OANN) for ostensibly violating their policy against “COVID-19 misinformation.”

Axios first reported the story Tuesday afternoon. YouTube spokeswoman Ivy Choi told the news outlet that OANN “uploaded a video promoting a phony cure for COVID-19.”

The suspension will last one week. In that time OANN cannot upload new videos or livestreams, and neither will they be able to make money from video monetization unless they re-apply and YouTube approves.

According to YouTube this is the OANN channel’s first “strike.” If they receive two more “strikes,” they will permanently ban their channel.

Axios also notes that “YouTube, like other platforms, has grown more willing to take action against conservative-leaning accounts that spread misinformation” and that “it has also been trying to provide greater visibility to legitimate news outlets.” In other words, grown more willing to suppress channels that don’t adhere to The Official Narrative and prop up channels that exuberantly do.

Back in September YouTube also censored Dr. Scott Atlas, a Hoover Institute senior fellow and Trump coronavirus advisor, for spreading “COVID-19 misinformation”:
