Fake news at it again

Their motivation is to get rid of every independent creator. Dying industry colluding to stay relevant. Wonder what stance YouTube takes on this.

Once again, everyone they don’t like or is a competition, is an agent of radicalization.

First it was Alex Jones - and now they are explicitly going after Philip, Joe Rogan, Dave Rubin etc ...

    Absolutely disgusting that our tech companies, who I used to respect, are so spineless and repeatedly fall for the pressure of a few activists and journalists to censor user produced content, despite the obvious free speech and free expression consequences.

    Tech should be defending free speech - even shitty free speech that I personally find distasteful or disgusting - they should not be the arbitrator of what is acceptable or not. That’s a scary road.

      Do you expect engineers to have any backbone or morals when most of them are just chasing TC to bring it back home? Free speech is a western concept that people no longer die for.

      The issue is more about SJW culture in most tech cos. They are starting To see themselves as activists

      They have always been activists. It’s not an issue of engineers; most engineers have been silenced into submission by these activists constantly narrowing the overton window

      That’s a distinction without a difference. The goal is very clearly to stifle ideas that have become politically unpopular IMO.

      They’re coordinating.

      This is all a coordinated effort between “activists,” “journalists” and “allies” in high positions at tech companies.

      God I hope the whole machinery gets exposed soon, they’ve spent years chipping away at the pillars of our civilization.

    If an ISIS beheading video was taken off YouTube would you be mad? If not please stop bringing up "free speech" when talking about companies. This is what the free market is for. If YouTube decides it doesn't want any videos of gingers or dogs or something else random so be it. Anyone in the first world can start their own service no one is entitled to a potential audience of billions that a company has built up over a decade. Free speech also doesn't mean you get to be free of criticism. People have died and mass shootings have occurred because of basement dwellers glued to their internet tube becoming radicalized.

      I support BLM. Will that radicalize your stupid ass?

      Don’t forget that The Young Turks (promoted by YouTube) quietly issued copyright strikes against a guy who made reaction videos to their content about cops where he basically agreed with all of their points after the guy killed and crippled a bunch of cops.

      And btw, I believe they shouldn’t be banned for that because they don’t have any responsibility for what their fans do. That’s called a consistent standard.

      An ISIS beheading video at least can fall under a consistent standard of removing graphic violence. We are talking about political videos that espouse a view people on the left don’t like and/or blaming creators of those videos (which do not call for violence) for the actions of people who watched their videos.

      @Msft we need to speak out against your black nationalism. YouTube and the tech companies don’t like when we do that.

    If tech is going to pick and choose what to censor they need to lose their Safe Haven exemption under the communications decency act. They are becoming publishers now, they have chosen this road and deserve to bear that burden.

      It really is hard to quantify the legal exposure, probably in the 10s or 100s of billions.

      Yeah that’s what I meant. I don’t want more regulation - maybe there is a publisher vs platform debate.

      Well they’re currently regulated as platforms not editorialize publications. So if they want to keep up the shenanigans they need to own the liability that goes along with it

      Thankfully, if there's one thing everyone can agree on it's that they're not regulated enough...

      Problem is F5 Networks, people don’t agree on what that regulation should be, a large portion of the left wants that regulation to involve the government telling the platforms what is and isn’t allowed.

      Then the answer is simple, none of these things are platforms they’re just editorialized publications. Let them selves censor and sue them aggressively whenever necessary. Problem solved

    Twitter and FB are killing serious journalism. Those two companies are social cancer.
