YouTube Demonetizes TheFatRat

In response to a complaint from a user about her YouTube videos not being “advertiser friendly,” the Google-owned tech giant revealed that it will now demonetize content based on comments that it deems “inappropriate.”

“Hi there–for reference, over the past few days, we’ve taken a number of actions to better protect the YouTube community from content that endangers minor,” YouTube said on Twitter. “With regard to the actions that we’ve taken, even if your video is suitable for advertisers, inappropriate comments could result in your video receiving limited or no ads (yellow icon). Let us know if you have any questions.”

Obviously, what any of the hundreds of millions of YouTube users might say in a comment on a video is out of the control of the person who created the video. YouTube, which is known for its censorship of anyone politically right of Stalin, is setting another dangerous precedent.

“Great so a lynch mob can target certain channels they disagree with. No issues there! </sarcasm>” one Twitter user said in response.

Some users appear poised to simply disable comments on their videos to avoid running the risk of being demonetized.

“So I guess YouTube creators should just turn off comments since they can’t control what others say in them?” said another Twitter user.

Turning off comments presents another problem for creators. Part of YouTube’s algorithm analyzes and prioritizes videos that attract interactions, like comments and “likes.” Disabling comments could significantly hamper the reach of YouTube creators.

Tech censorship continues to take its toll.

Facebook Directly Censoring Tucker Carlson in Advance of November Election

They fear Tucker Carlson.

Published

Facebook is censoring Tucker Carlson just weeks away from the November 3rd presidential election, hoping to silence America’s most popular political news figure.

Tucker Carlson hosts the most popular cable television show in American history on Fox News, and he’s one of the only journalists(although he eschews the term) that Americans who distrust oligarch-controlled corporate media rely on for information.

Facebook notified Tucker’s page on the social media giant that his posts would have “reduced distribution” for what they’re falsely claiming is “repeated sharing of fake news.”

Facebook has previously censored an interview Tucker conducted with a Chinese dissident who claims that coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory by Chinese government researchers.

Tucker is the most prominent political figure to criticize the alliance of big business with the establishment Democrat Party, most notably the tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Facebook has now taken a page out of the Chinese or Soviet political playbook in censoring its own critics.

Left-wing whiners have been furiously clamoring for Facebook to censor more conservative and right-wing figures, pointing to the pitiful engagement that liberal pundits and politicians receive on the platform in comparison to figures like Tucker, Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump, and Mark Levin.
