RIDICULOUS: YouTube Demonetizes Shapiro’s Interview With Dave Rubin

By  Daily Wire

On Wednesday, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro sat down with Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report for a thoughtful conversation on the issues of the day. YouTube apparently decided that Rubin should be punished for having the chutzpah to interview Shapiro, and thus decided to demonetize it, according to Rubin, who was justifiably angry about the decision.

Rubin pointed out that even if YouTube decided to reverse their discussion, the damage had already been done.

Rubin took a shot at YouTube for their biased behavior:

Douglas Ernst of The Washington Times chimed in:

According to YouTube, in a section they titled, “Content that is not suitable for most advertisers,” here is what they deem unsuitable:

Controversial issues and sensitive events: Video content that features or focuses on sensitive topics or events including, but not limited to, war, political conflicts, terrorism or extremism, death and tragedies, sexual abuse, even if graphic imagery is not shown, is generally not suitable for ads.

Drugs and dangerous products or substances.

Harmful or dangerous acts.

Hateful content: Video content that promotes discrimination or disparages or humiliates an individual or group of people on the basis of the individual’s or group’s race, ethnicity or ethnic origin, nationality, religion, disability, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or other characteristic that is associated with systemic discrimination or marginalization is not suitable for advertising.

Inappropriate language: Video content that contains frequent uses of strong profanity or vulgarity throughout the video may not be suitable for advertising.

Inappropriate use of family entertainment characters.

Incendiary and demeaning: Video content that is gratuitously incendiary, inflammatory, or demeaning may not be suitable for advertising.

Sexually suggestive content.
