YouTube Purge 2018 - The Problem With YouTube Conspiracy Theories - YouTube Censorship 2018
Ryan Straight Up Playlist: goo.gl/mLq6oB
If you have been following the youtube news lately you will have heard that the YouTube Purge 2018 was in full swing last week as youtube terminated channels that did nothing wrong!
Youtube terminating channels is not a new issue, after hiring over 10,000 new moderaters the new staff are still learning the ropes!
However the problem with youtube is the problem with conspiracy theories especially youtube conspiracy theories 2018 revolving around the potential alex jones ban!
Alex jones has been pushing fake news and the problem with conspiracy theories has only begun!
This youtube problem 2018 is not an easy one to solve, and advertisers leaving youtube is not going to help! These advertisers pulling out of youtube have been trying to find advertiser friendly content and the youtube problem is they keep letting them down!
This youtube censorship 2018 is another problem, when is it okay for youtube to censor content and when is it not! We discuss it today!
Follow our social media:
I find it all odd, with regard to advertisers, that they have an issue with their ads appearing on a conservative news channel. yet they have no problem with their ads appearing on regular television during shows that display murder, drug use, rape, sex, violence, nudity and excessive swearing. If I was an advertiser selling a product, I would want it to reach a very broad demographic, just like television does. It's not like Alex Jones is telling anyone to go out and do horrible things to other people. As far as the censorship goes, YouTube can't even decide what their own TOS really are. They have flip flopped on this repeatedly. I mean, I tell scary stories, just any kids with their counselors at 5th grade summer camp, and somehow that's not advertiser friendly. Yet turn on The Walking Dead, watch the carnage, and it's "hello commercials".
I like a mix of liberal and conservative viewpoints. Today it seems like if you're even a little bit conservative on anything, people will call you alt-right or a nazi. It sucks for a lot of conservative channels who make really good content.
Well I don't know I think YouTube is entertainment everything on here is not necessarily believeable. Not saying everything on YouTube is fake but not everything is true so since its for entertainment purposes I feel YouTube is going a bit far and violating our right to speak! I do understand a bit but I don't know i personally don't believe anything til I see it!!!
Hello CS like #225 here :) keep up the good work. YouTube ..what's next? Seems to never end. I try not to even comment negative things about YT in general because strange weird technical difficulties begin to happen..one time I had a terrible tooth ache and NEVER did I see a video for anything even tooth related BUT after a lot of pain and verbal statements outloud so i log Into yt and a video in red alerting ass video in my rec's how to solve tooth ache..I always think about that..YouTube is crazy they listen to us somehow and watch our moves very closely. I would never make a video bagging yt lol they are strange intelligent individuals doing god knows what..but I really enjoyed this video Ryan as always..glad I found your channel very good content ✌
I think nobody should be censored on social media. If you dont like it then do not watch it 🤣🤣. As far as these advertisers being cry babies over where their ads are put then allow the advertiser to choose what content they want to and dont want to advertise on (oh wait YouTube already does just that for advertisers so I feel it is the advertisers fault for not reading or why they are being advertised on certain channels). It is not rocket science lol
YouTube is definitely crossing the line with this. Censoring a channel because they do not agree with their ideology is wrong. It’s okay to disagree but we have the freedom of speech and YouTube might want to tread lightly with this one. Great video!
Personally I can completely understand censoring certain alt right channels as it could be taken as hate speech, however at the same time the far far left are also guilty of similar and should also be punished as such. Liberal as I am everybody should have a fair chance at free speech as long as it’s not hateful! Great video as per ☺️
YouTube can do what it wants with its business model. I think it's a mistake though, not because I like Alan Jones (I'm not crazy) but because all it takes is a alt right person with their finger on the button to get almost anyone banned. It's a lot of power. But freedom of speech doesn't actually extend to what YouTube decides to show on their channel.
Excellent video. Yes, YouTube purging channels that don't align with their political narrative is crossing a line, it's disgusting. YouTube needs to be a platform of the people, not of Google's agenda.
I might get into trouble for saying this, some of those channels have some truth to it...but Alex Jones is a walking hernia ill be glad when hes gone! his videos causes a mass headache across the globe! 😂✌
THEY'RE PUTTING CHEMICALS IN THE WATER THAT ARE TURNIN' THE FRIGGIN FROGS GAY!!!
Tbh I love Alex Jones, he's fucking hilarious. The problem is that nobody understands satire anymore. People who have personally met and interacted with him generally attest that his infowars persona is mostly an act and that he's actually pretty level headed and more of a centrist than far right.
To be clear I hate Jones, Flat Earthers are not only ignorant but wildly irresponsible, and those that think tragedies such a shootings are faked make me sick to my stomach. With that said they have the right to say those things because that is the same right that allows me to type this and disagree with them.
Freedom of speech is not freedom from reaction. They can say these heinous and idiotic things all day but that does not mean companies have to run ads on their videos.
YouTube needs to get their house in order before they take anymore big initiatives to change the platform. When basics features like subscribing and notifications don't work right it's time to take stock of how your platform runs.
Nice balanced video dude! YouTube bends and changes its rules as they see beneficial for their own pockets. Filming a dead body, harassing the Japanese public, disrespecting a whole country, getting banned from said country and getting massive backlash does not lead to a channel strike. However, speaking about a conspiracy theory gets you a strike and a step closer to termination, wtf!?
Another great videos are very informative I had no idea the issue that was going on currently
And I feel like that any companies that want to run ads in any kind of Internet video or streaming services should understand and be knowledged through any streaming services that we still all have free-speech free to express Our religion our culture or believes in anything and when Youtube still “believes in free speech and supports that” even though you cuss too much or there is something running in the background like a TV show that you weren’t aware of for about 10 seconds they won’t put ads in your video but they’ll put ads in a video that’s going viral regardless of what the circumstances are you know I just feel like that the companies it felt surprised about were there ads are running on I hope they watch YouTube more often then on a random basis and just because particular companies or any ads for any company run on any video doesn’t necessarily mean they support that Channel or that person but it’s cheaper to run ads through YouTube Or any streaming service video online service rather than cable TV obviously cheaper it’s wherever Youtube wants to classify what is at friendly and what is not But they all have to remember when they wanna run ads on YouTube or any streaming services that there’s going to be less of a professional perspective point compare to cable and TV companies so they have to keep in mind that things like that will happen no matter what I think they just get a little too politically correct and it shows at the worst time
Great video sir thumbs up 👍
Great vid, I've never watched Alex Jones, but I think if you spread conspiracy theories about children who literally survived a mass killing of their classmates is really sick. So its hard for me to have sympathy for him and I could care less about his channel. However, at the same time, I wonder if youtube will start to censor real information from a credible source in the future for the sake of an advertiser.
