YouTube has issued a warning or “strike” against the John Fredericks Radio Network’s YouTube page following the upload of Episode 39 of War Room: Impeachment.
John Fredericks, the first network to host the War Room: Impeachment show, received the notification of the strike from YouTube late on Wednesday night, indicating a co-ordinated campaign to have the show removed from the video-streaming site.
YouTube sent John Fredericks the following e-mail:
“Our team has reviewed your content, and, unfortunately, we think it violates our spam, deceptive practices and scams policy. We’ve removed the following content from YouTube”.
YouTube did not go into any details over what constituted “spam, deceptive practices” or “scams”.
The persistent targeting of conservative or right-wing media by digital media platforms is something that has been raised repeatedly, culminating earlier this year in a White House “Social Media Summit”, as well as a plethora of public statements on the matter by the President and his family, most notably Donald Trump Jr.
John Fredericks said of the move: “This is another outrageous and disturbing example of blatant censorship by the leftist-controlled social media monopolies in the United States. Our YouTube Channel is a source of truth and facts for our viewers. They attacked War Room Impeachment at its source due to its effectiveness in getting the truth out about the impeachment hearings.
“The show hosts are the driving national force in disrupting the lying fake news legacy media’s phony narrative. It’s a testimonial to how influential our daily show War Room: Impeachment is, both inside the beltway and the heartland.”
