Google De-Platforms Novara Media’s YouTube Channel mdi-fullscreen

This morning, Google-owned YouTube deleted the Novara Media channel, supposedly without warning nor explanation. Despite obvious political differences between Guido and Novara, if that is true it is manifestly wrong for them to have been silenced by YouTube. As it was when TalkRadio’s channel was deleted back in January. 

As Novara note, they are “among the top 50 most watched news and politics channels in the UK” and are already regulated by IMPRESS. Users trying to access the channel are told by YouTube:

“This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, deceptive practices, and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations.”

Guido hopes it won’t be long before we see a rapid u-turn and the channel’s restoration emerges from YouTube HQ…

UPDATE:  Gary, Novara’s video editor, has hopefully had a moment of realisation today:
