YouTube completly banned LifeSiteNews and removed all its video
YouTube took a step forward in censorship and has banned pro-life website LifeSiteNews from its platform and removed all videos posted on its channel. In the result of the blocking, the resource lost about 3,000 its followers.
"YouTube just completely removed the LifeSiteNews YouTube channel. This isn't a temporary ban; every single one of our videos is completely gone," LifeSiteNews reported Wednesday.
"Thankfully, we have backups of all our videos, but this means hundreds of thousands of people have lost access to our truth-telling content," staff writers said in an article describing what happened
Hopefully, about 3,000 followers of LifeSiteNews still can get an access to the deleted videos on Rambler, which is a YouTube competitor favored by conservatives concerned about censorship from other social media platforms. And, of course, company’s website is still working and the users can watch the videos there.
"LifeSite's video content can still be accessed directly at LifeSiteNews.com, of course. We will continue to speak the truth of Christ and will not give in to the threats of Big Tech and the censors who wish to remove Biblical truths [from] the public square. God's Word will spread over the whole earth whether Google likes it or not. We are taking legal steps too, of course, so we would appreciate your prayers and any support that you feel called to give."
"In accordance with our long standing strikes system, we terminated the channel LifeSite News Media for repeatedly violating our COVID-19 misinformation policy, which prohibits content that promotes prevention methods that contradict local health authorities or WHO. Any channel that violates our COVID-19 misinformation policy will receive a strike, which temporarily restricts uploading or live-streaming. Channels that receive three strikes in the same 90-day period will be permanently removed from YouTube," a spokesperson for Google told TheBlaze.
