peter hitchens interview censored
YouTube fortsætter med at undertrykke alt indhold, der strider mod deres valgte fortælling.

I tilfælde af at du undrer dig, så ja, YouTube håndhæver stadig sin indtil nu næsten uhørte censur omkring, hvad der er tilladt at sige om coronavirus-pandemien.

Men denne censur ser ud til at være elastisk i forhold til hvordan og på hvem den anvendes. Mens mange videoer blev fjernet kortvarigt, er selv de, der giver stemme til respektable forskere og læger, ligesom et interview med den britiske journalist Peter Hitchens 'blot' blevet skjult.

Kommentar: Delvist oversat af fra YouTube censors interview with lockdown skeptic Peter Hitchens

The interview was published on the TRIGGERnometry YouTube channel, run by Konstantin Kisin and Francis Foster who bill it as "free speech and fact-based."

On Monday, they announced on Twitter that the interview with Hitchens - who criticized the UK government's policy of lockdowns during the epidemic - was being censored on YouTube.

"Technically they haven't deleted it but the video cannot be found by search," the they said, explaining that the only way to see the video on YouTube now is to click on a direct link.

Lastly, this pair of podcasters and channel owners reveal that they think Big Tech "cannot be allowed" to be the arbiter of valid opinion.

However, as one of the channel's subscribers noted, "they can and do."

Some Twitter users chiming in said that the stream of the interview recorded the previous day had been removed from their subscriptions, and confirmed the video could only be reached directly on the channel.

Another commenter said that all of TRIGGERnometry's videos showed up in their home and subscriptions page - except the interview with Hitchens. And the same result was echoed in a series of other comments that all confirmed they received no notification of the video being published.

That's certainly one way to censor content, and it wouldn't be the first time YouTube has done it, either.

However, when Hitchens tagged YouTube to ask why his interview with TRIGGERnometry about the coronavirus controversy "does not show up at all" - he received what looks like an automated response complete with a link to the Google Search Help page.
