Nothing is quite as pathetic as liberals who have cheered every censoring of opposing views by mainstream and social media and who now are astonished, horrified even, that the media are now going after “progressive” alternative media. Caitlin Johnstone was not one of those liberals. From Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:
The Google-owned video sharing platform YouTube has demonetized numerous independent media accounts, a jarring escalation in the steadily intensifying campaign against alternative news outlets online.
Progressive commentators Graham Elwood, The Progressive Soapbox, The Convo Couch, Franc Analysis, Hannah Reloaded and Cyberdemon531 have all received notifications from YouTube that their videos are no longer permitted to earn money through the platform’s various monetization features, as has Ford Fischer, a respected freelancer who films US political demonstrations. No explanation has been offered for this decision beyond the vague claim that “your channel is not in line with our YouTube Partner Program policies” due to “harmful content”.
