YouTube to Delete Content Alleging Presidential Election Fraud

December 9, 2020 Updated: December 9, 2020

YouTube announced that from Dec. 9 it will block and remove content that contains statements “alleging widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of a historical U.S. presidential election.”

The Google-owned firm said that it was because the “safe harbor” deadline on Dec. 8 in the presidential election had passed, claiming that “enough states have certified their election results.”

However, there are still outstanding legal challenges, including one in the Supreme Court, that could change the outcome of the election. YouTube’s statement made no mention of these, and it made no mention of the Dec. 14 Electoral College vote date.

The Epoch Times has not declared a winner of the election.

But according to the San Bruno, California-based company, “We will start removing any piece of content uploaded today (or anytime after) that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, in line with our approach towards historical U.S. presidential elections.”

“For example, we will remove videos claiming that a presidential candidate won the election due to widespread software glitches or counting errors. We will begin enforcing this policy today, and will ramp up in the weeks to come,” the firm wrote. “As always, news coverage and commentary on these issues can remain on our site if there’s sufficient education, documentary, scientific, or artistic context.” It did not elaborate on the context it requires.

The company then said that it will “guide” people to “authoritative information” provided by corporate news outlets such as ABC, CBS, NBC, or CNN. Over the past month since the election, those news outlets have provided little coverage of lawsuits or allegations of election fraud.

The Epoch Times has reached out to President Donald Trump’s team for comment.

On Twitter, YouTube’s announcement was slammed by conservative commentators, who said the company is engaging in censorship.

“YouTube has declared you are now forbidden from criticizing the government’s handling of the election,” wrote OANN’s Jack Posobiec. Several weeks ago, OANN’s YouTube channel was suspended and demonetized.

The move is sure to draw the ire of certain members of Congress and Trump himself, who in recent weeks, have suggested social media and tech companies should not have the protection of the federal Section 230 law. Lawmakers from both Republican and Democratic parties have signaled the law should be rewritten or repealed, arguing that it shields such firms from responsibility.

Critics of the measure say that it allows Big Tech firms to get away with censorship and make poor content moderation decisions. Many conservatives have said YouTube and other social media companies have engaged in censoring pro-Trump or conservative viewpoints.

An October 2020 lawsuit filed against YouTube said the firm repeatedly breached its own terms of service by deleting their pages or suspending them without cause and didn’t tell them the reason why.

“Plaintiffs remain baffled as to what, specifically in their content-led them to be part of the massive de-platforming, other than the commonality that they are conservative news channels with widespread audience reach,” wrote attorney M. Cris Armenta in the complaint, which was filed in California federal court on behalf of several plaintiffs. Armenta argued that YouTube violated their First Amendment rights, saying it “engaged in state action by capitulating to government coercion” to purge the accounts.

Dr Corsi NEWS 11-30-20: New eBook TRUMP WINS! 100% Certain

Dr. Jerome Corsi

We are entering the endgame of the 2020 presidential election. The Deep State coup d’état that began on June 16, 2015, the day Donald Trump came down the escalator in Trump Tower to announce his candidacy for president of the United States. This book presents compelling evidence that the goal of the Deep State was to steal the election for Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris. The fact that the Deep State intended to steal the election makes understandable why the Democrats nominated Joe Biden for president, despite him being a corrupt 78- year-old Washington establishment professional politician who shows signs of reduced mental capacity apparent to many voters as on-coming senior dementia. It also explains why the Democrats thought they could win by nominating as vice president Kamala Harris, a radical left socialist politician with a problematic personal history, who was so unpopular with her own party that she was unable to win a single Democratic Party primary contest. But if the Democrats were going to steal the election anyway, it did not matter that Biden and Harris were perhaps one of the most unlikely to win presidential tickets nominated by either party in decades. What is perhaps equally apparent is that on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, President Donald Trump won a landslide election of historic significance in which he may have received 80 million popular votes and possibly 360 electoral votes, historic numbers that would have easily assured him of a second term, provided the election had been conducted legitimately. In this eBook I predict Trump will win re-election, but that is only because of what I always say: Donald Trump always looks like he is going to lose right until when he wins, and in the end, God always wins!
