Following Fox News’ complete meltdown over the past few months, conservatives have been searching for a new home to get their news.
But the Big Tech elites are making that difficult.
And conservatives should be concerned after this huge media site banned a major conservative news outlet.
One American News Network’s (OANN) viewership has been exploding in the last two years as conservatives seek out independent and fair conservative news outlets.
Naturally, the media “elite” and Big Tech have labeled OANN as a “fake news outlet” simply because they share facts with an honest-to-God conservative outlook on life.
But the elites took it too far when the Big Tech giant Google stripped One America News Network’s YouTube channel of the ability to make money off of the ads running on their videos and suspended their account from posting any new videos for a week.
YouTube said on Tuesday it had barred the right-wing outlet One America News Network from posting new videos for a week after it broke the site’s rules against content that claims there is a guaranteed cure for COVID-19.
A spokeswoman for YouTube, the video-sharing platform owned by Alphabet’s Inc’s Google, said OAN had also been suspended from monetizing its videos due to repeated violations of the COVID-19 misinformation policy and other rules. OAN will have to reapply to be allowed to monetize again.
The YouTube spokeswoman said an OAN video, now removed, had violated its coronavirus misinformation rules by claiming that hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug touted by Trump despite a lack of scientific evidence, was a cure for COVID-19.
YouTube outright admitted that they will not be tolerant of any content that even claims there is a cure for COVID-19.
While the YouTube platform rules don’t have to abide by the First Amendment, it’s obvious that their “review” system is out to target conservatives who have a different view than the “accepted” elitist view.
They concocted a “COVID-19 misinformation” policy on the spot that is geared toward striking anyone who doesn’t add to the virus panic that’s been hyperbolized by the fake news outlets like CNN, MSNBC, and CBS.
On top of that, Big Tech giants like Google and Facebook regularly commit anti-competitive behavior that doesn’t allow for any competitors to get their foot in the door before they are swallowed up.
It’s a vicious cycle of anti-conservative companies that are – at the moment – successfully silencing conservatives en masse.
