They Come For Everyone Eventually

Progressive news outlet Status Coup is at risk due to YouTube's heavy-handed censorship policies (reclaimthenet.org)

Once again YouTube has taken to making lives of independent creators and media who choose it as their distribution platform quite difficult, by removing content and threatening further restrictive action.

This time the policy of non-transparent removals hit Jordan Chariton, a progressive journalist, and an outlet he helped co-found, Status Coup.

YouTube must control the narrative. And part of that means that only “reliable sources” that agree with the narrative are allowed to post about it. If you’re a small shop, you can’t even post even if you agree.
