What’s happening to Ford is fucking awful. He’s a good journalist doing important work.

I don’t understand how @YouTube is still so bad at this. How can they not differentiate between white supremacist content and good faith reporting on white supremacy?

Independent journalists already being hit by #VoxAdpocalypse

**UPDATE #1***

Vox’s Carlos Maza now complaining about the demonitization as countless people turn on him:

#voxadpocalypse YouTube has started going on a massive banning spree/demonitization of independent media channels

YouTubes banning spree went far behound conspiracy and hate speech. They are now going after educational videos, media, commentary channels, comedians and anyone with ideas they don’t agree with.

Part of this is due to a Vox writer who literally had a tweet that says “deplatforming works, and it needs to be used more aggressively” This whole thing was planned as a way to silence people you don’t agree with.


Who needs government censorship when they can get their partner corporations to do it for them!


Jan 2019 – Mar 2019
Total channels removed

As we do this, we’re partnering closely with lawmakers and civil society around the globe to limit the spread of violent extremist content online.

There’s more;

Reducing borderline content and raising up authoritative voices

Do they mean “authoritative voices” like CNN and the like?

Actually, that is EXACTLY what they mean!

For example, if a user is watching a video that comes close to violating our policies, our systems may include more videos from authoritative sources (like top news channels) in the “watch next” panel.





THE PURGE GOES ON: “Within minutes of @YouTube’s announcement of a new purge it appears they caught my outlet, which documents activism and extremism, in the crossfire. I was just notified my entire channel has been demonetized. I am a journalist whose work there is used in dozens of documentaries.”

That’s just the start of a long and informative — and for YouTube, quite damning — Twitter thread from Ford Fischer.

Story #1: YouTube to Ban “Hateful,” “Supremacist” Videos

From ThemTube’s Own Maw: “Our Ongoing Work to Tackle Hate”

“If I don’t sign into youtube ya’ll can’t notify me and take down my channel. #Checkmate.”

“To placate media elites screaming for censorship and demanding punishment, YouTube will impose rash, ill-considered new standards that end up harming small independent “creators” who’ve done nothing wrong. But that’s acceptable collateral damage for the moralizing media freaks”

“What if you’re an indie broadcaster that has never monetized anything ever in 13+ years and wonders why we’re still having this conversation after three years and acting shocked?” #VoxAdpocalypse
