Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis attacked YouTube and its parent company Google on Monday, accusing the tech giant of censorship for its decision last week to remove from its platform video of a coronavirus discussion he organized where his panel criticized lockdowns and some mask wearing as ineffective.
DeSantis said YouTube’s contention that video of the March 18 panel violates its ban on the posting of disinformation is an attempt to stifle dissent against the federal government’s pandemic response. That discussion included Dr. Scott Atlas, a radiologist who was a coronavirus adviser to former President Donald Trump, and other physicians who support DeSantis’ decision to open Florida’s economy with few restrictions.
CBS News’ “60 Minutes” acknowledged criticism on Sunday for last week’s widely condemned segment about Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, but it didn’t apologize or retract the report and chose only to read a few negative letters.
“This is something that shouldn’t surprise anyone anymore. So many institutions in the media, including ’60 Minutes,’ sadly, have now adopted an approach that essentially amounts to Democratic propaganda,” The Federalist publisher Ben Domenech said Monday on “Fox & Friends.”
