YouTube bans right leaning content but hate from the left goes unchecked

Reportedly, thousands of YouTube videos have been removed after reports from non-government organizations, and a few government agencies.

YouTube is bragging it has removed more than 100,000 videos and 17,000 channels for “hate speech” violations in the second quarter of 2019, which is a fivefold increase over the previous period.

They have also removed more than 500 million comments, double the number of the previous period.

Media Research Center Tech Watch, Business and Culture vice president Dan Gainor said the Left has figured out how to "weaponize" these reporting systems.

"Tech companies create the system, but the Left goes and targets conservative videos, and in particular groups like PragerU, had a serious problem over at YouTube," said Gainor.

He said the tech companies are under pressure from major media, international organizations of government, as well as the U.S. government to restrict speech. President Trump is one of the few major few leaders who are in favor of free speech.

"We still want them to embrace the ideals of the First Amendment. We should be sharing that with the world, not embracing the world's view of censorship," said Gainor.

Since January 2018, YouTube has an “Intelligence Desk”, that monitors emerging trends in inappropriate content.

Google has more than 10,000 people to remove content that violates its guidelines.
