Liberals have controlled media for decades. And they also control social media which sometimes censors conservative speech. Many satellite social media platforms are popping up all over the place in hopes to compete.
Prager U is taking matters into its own hands. They’re going the legal route and taking Google and YouTube to court.
PragerU, the conservative digital media organization from Dennis Prager, is suing YouTube and its parent Google over alleged censorship of their videos.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the lawsuit, which was filed on Monday, “says YouTube’s more than 30 million visitors a day make the site so elemental to free speech in the digital age that it should be treated as a public forum.”
“The suit argues the site must use the ‘laws governing free speech,’ not its own discretion, to make decisions about what to censor,” they reported, adding that PragerU “alleges that by limiting access to some of its videos without clear criteria YouTube is infringing on PragerU’s First Amendment rights.”
YouTube has repeatedly censored PragerU on their platform, labeling political videos as “restricted” adult content and even removing a video of “a Muslim man describing how he was raised to be anti-Semitic,” branding the video as “hate speech.”
There’s power in numbers. This is the first, but may not be the last of this kind of action against conservative bashing.
