The video wasn’t left alone by You Tube a-holes until an article written the lefty Matt Taibbi.
YouTube cracked down on a video compilation of Democrats and media pundits questioning the legitimacy of former President Donald Trump’s 2016 election victory – then overturned the move amid backlash on Thursday.
“The material in this video does not promote the idea that any election was stolen or illegitimate,” Taibbi wrote. “On the contrary, it shows a great mass of comments from Democratic Partisans and pundits who themselves make that claim about the 2016 election.”
The comments were not censored when they were “made the first time around,” Taibbi added and he noted there were no sanctions against, for example, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann for claiming “it will not be a peaceful transfer of power” when Trump took office.
A YouTube spokesperson said the decision was overturned after a review, following publication of the Substack article.
“This video was demonetized due to an error in our automated systems,” the spokesperson told The Post. Our systems are not perfect, and we encourage creators to appeal enforcement actions directly in YouTube Studio when they feel we got something wrong. Every appeal helps improve the accuracy of our enforcement over time.”
