YouTube has completely removed all of LifeSiteNews’ videos and effectively banned it from the popular social media platform. LifeSiteNews is a pro-life organization and had 300,000 subscribers on YouTube before it was deplatformed. The Catholic pro-life group has moved its videos over to Rumble, a growing free-speech video platform.
A report by the Media Research Center (MRC) outlined 25 times social media giants such as Twitter (the biggest offender), Facebook and YouTube censored conservatives in 2019 and 2020.

In what is an unusual move, YouTube censors responded to criticism over why they took down a video by Dr. Knut Wittkowski on the need for herd immunity in dealing with the coronavirus. For YouTube censors to do this, they must be feeling the heat. For the virus to be brought under control, Wittkowski believes the majority of the people need to contract the virus and develop a ‘herd immunity,’ and because of that, he believes governments should end the lockdowns.

Popular Conservative columnist and radio-host Dennis Prager recently announced his nonprofit organization, Prager University (PragerU), is taking YouTube and its owners Google to court alleging that it has imposed a “political gag mechanism” on some of PragerU’s information and news videos. PragerU, that is being represented in part by Liberty Counsel, alleges YouTube is using a number of mechanism to restrict PragerU’s videos from being viewed.

It has also demonetized some videos not allowing his PragerU to earn ad revenues. The organization first noticed the problem in July 2016. The lawsuit alleges that the restricted mode has been put on videos talking about such themes as North Korea, Israel and Supreme Court decisions. In some instances, YouTube has restricted access to PragerU videos because they use such words as “genocide,” “hate” and “terrorism.” Liberty Counsel said in its news release: “While PragerU videos have been censored, the same subject matters posted …
