Youtube needs to explain just what community standards were violated and when. Failure to do that just exposes them further as the bigots we already know they are. This is entirely about censorship and it is going to get much worse before it gets better. But it is consistent with their pro-China. The CCP actually raided Epoch Times offices and destroyed equipment and other property. Now Google is dutifully lending a hand in Beijing’s drive to stifle dissent and criticism.
YouTube has stopped The Epoch Times from earning money off its videos. Just the News reported the media company was stripped of its ability to monetize video content just days ago. “YouTube demonetized The Epoch Times and related accounts last week,” Stephen Gregory, publisher of The Epoch Times told Just the News in an email. “This is the latest example of big tech suppression of free speech, a step on the road to communist-style censorship.” A YouTube spokesperson confirmed The Epoch Times and affiliated channels had been demonetized and the publication had been suspended from the YouTube Partner Program. “All channels on YouTube need to comply with our Community Guidelines, and in order to monetize, channels must comply with the YouTube Partner Program policies, which include our Advertiser-Friendly Guidelines,” the spokesperson said. “Channels that repeatedly violate these policies are suspended from our partner program.”YouTube Blocks Epoch Times From Making Money Off Video Content | Newsmax.com
