YouTube headquarters / IMAGE: ThatsBella via YouTube YouTube admitted on Tuesday that it has removed more than 1 million videos that spread “dangerous coronavirus misinformation” since the pandemic first began in February 2020.
In a statement , the social-media publisher said all the videos taken down included content that spread “false claims” about the pandemic, such as “false cures or claims of a hoax,” even though YouTube had no hard evidence to validate its own editorial stances.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills.

One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
