You may have trouble finding conservative content on the internet during the spring and summer months leading up to the November election.
Because a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has ruled that YouTube – owned by Google – can censor any content it doesn’t like.
This means Google can do the same thing.
Because it’s a private forum – and therefore not bound by the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of speech.
PragerU – a nonprofit organization that creates short videos on political, economic and philosophical topics – had filed a lawsuit against YouTube, accusing it of ideologically-driven discrimination after some of its videos were blocked or restricted for mature audiences.
But the court dismissed the lawsuit … noting that YouTube is a private forum and therefore doesn’t have to publish conservative content with which it disagrees. What do you think? Do you agree with the court? Email me at email@example.com.
