In an explosive, f-bomb filled video, CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo threatened to throw his critic down a flight of stairs after he called him “Fredo” a reference to the pathetic middle child of the Corleone family in The Godfather film series. YouTube took down the video, but quickly restored it after both Don Jr. and the president himself blasted the company for the takedown.
A viral video showing CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo threatening to throw a Trump supporter down the stairs has been removed from YouTube by the platform. The YouTube channel “That’s the POINT with Brandon” posted a video showing Cuomo threatening a Trump supporter.
The left has no problem with hiding behind activist teenagers, but will scapegoat a right-wing one if she criticizes them. YouTube, Google’s sister company, deplatformed a 14-year-old conservative girl after she made a video criticizing Pride Month. Her channel has been completely banned from YouTube.
The pro-Trump YouTuber who goes by the name CarpeDonktum revealed that Buzzfeed is considering releasing his personal information. Shortly after noon July 15, he announced as a “friendly heads up” that Buzzfeed “is currently in the midst of a moral dilemma about whether or not they should Dox me and my family.” Many of his comical videos have been retweeted by president Trump himself.
The New York Times demonstrated its loathing for conservative social media activists, while skipping over some of its own inconvenient blind spots. The headline over reporter Kevin Roose's pre-meeting table-setter, “Trump Woos Social Media Influencers,” belied the story’s hostility, but the online headline accurately captured the tone: “Trump Rolls Out the Red Carpet for Right-Wing Social Media Trolls.” Yet the Times itself is no stranger to sucking up to hoaxters or spreading falsehoods about Republicans

Do you let your kids browse YouTube unsupervised? A lot of the people who work there don’t. According to a June 17 Bloomberg article, “Four people at [YouTube’s parent company] Google privately admitted that they don’t let their kids watch YouTube unsupervised and said the sentiment was widespread at the company.”
It's starting to look like the recent demonetization of Steven Crowder's Louder With Crowder YouTube channel was used as an excuse to institute an already planned crackdown on free speech on that platform. Who is the source for this information? Why, the CEO of Google himself, Sundar Pichai, who announced such a crackdown in during an Axios on HBO interview which was recorded BEFORE the demonetization of Crowder's channel because he was charged with offending a Vox writer.
Tech companies have only one rule about censorship: don’t talk about censorship. Project Veritas, a conservative investigative group, just had its video exposing censorship at Pinterest removed from YouTube.
The #VoxAdpocalypse is steadily growing worse as the media has called for YouTube to ban and censor more people. YouTube announced on June 5 that it would be removing “hundreds of thousands” more videos because of its newer, harsher policies. CNN reported on June 12 that despite these new policies, figures that the outlet found to be “hateful” were still active on the platform.
While YouTube has been panicking over one offended LGBT reporter, the platform’s overreaction has both sides outraged. YouTube announced a crackdown on Wednesday June 5 on videos promoting or glorifying racism and discrimination. However, in what appears to be the haphazard actions of a hastily deployed algorithm, even videos critiquing “hate speech” and conspiracy theories have been taken down or demonetized.
