YouTube seems to have blocked a YouTube interview with Dr. Peter McCullough between a British YouTube channel before the video was published.
Videos are now being censored by Censors before publication. “YouTube have banned my podcast with @P_McCulloughMD before we’ve even made it live for everyone,” the accountJon Joseph Bourgerie tweets Jan. 11 as Jon Joseph Bourgerie of The British Entrepreneur Youtube channel. However, it appeared that the account was express anxiety that the interview undermining the left’s COVID-19 narrative would face Big Tech backlash when it tweeted: “YouTube podcast with @P_McCulloughMD complete! This Friday This one is great with a great man. Let’s hope it doesn’t get banned.”
The Bourgerie account posted a purported screenshot of YouTube’s comments on the video’s removal. The Bourgerie Twitter account said it appealed the video’s removal, declaring: “Interview with @P_McCulloughMD appeal not approved for ‘medical misinformation’… this is insanity. Thank you @YouTube. The Podcast will be available Friday @Apple @SpotifyLet me know if there is any misinformation. You won’t.”
Also, the account called out @TeamYouTube, explaining:
“Hi @TeamYouTube I understand you have to manage millions of videos but everything in this YouTube video 2sQ9_Md4aK0 with @P_McCulloughMD has references to everything said.
“I hope this is just an error and we can share this conversation, it’s important for us all.”
TeamYouTube responded by sharing a link to a guide on “why videos are taken down” but did not provide details on how Bourgerie’s video specifically violated YouTube policy or spread medical “misinformation”:
“We recommend checking out this guide to know why videos are taken down based on the error message you see when you try to view it: https://yt.be/help/k9jQ. More on how we enforce our Community Guidelines: https://yt.be/help/AeP5. Reach back out if needed.”
YouTube has previously blocked Dr. McCullough’s interview. When he was interviewed on December’s Joe Rogan Experience podcast, YouTube did the same.
McCullough had told host Joe Rogan there was a “suppression of early treatment” in order to “create acceptance for, and then promote, mass vaccination.” The unverified Twitter account purportedly representing McCulloughHe posted the link to his complete interview with Rogan online. A tweet from the account remarked: “Alright, we’ll see how long this lasts up, great chat with @JoeRogan on health & C19 #PeterMcCulloughMD.”
Inevitably, YouTube censored the video linked in the tweet, adding a notification that reads: “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines.” The “learn more” link routes viewers to a Community Guidelines overview, including a link to YouTube’s so-called “COVID-19 medical misinformation policy.”
