YouTube Bans The Daily Mail For ‘Violating Community Guidelines’


Quote:
YouTube has banned the official channel of The Daily Mail, one of the United Kingdom’s longest-running tabloid newspapers.

Users navigating to the newspaper’s official YouTube page as of Saturday evening (EST) are greeted by a page informing them that the account has been suspended for violating “community guidelines.”



The newspaper, founded in 1896, is a frequent target of the British left for its conservative positions. The paper backed the campaign for Brexit in 2016.


Continued at above link.

I wonder what exactly it was that violated YT's “community guidelines”?


Again, I realize that YT is a business and allowed to set their own guidelines (within the law) but their practices do not exactly seem even and consistent.

That looked chaotic.

Tommy desperately needs a bullhorn or he won't have a voice left after more of those.

maybe the "Speakers corner" rules don't allow it?
I don't know what the rules, if any, are.
