Things keep getting crazier in Australia.
YouTube just announced that Sky News Australia is suspended from uploading new video content for one week due to alleged "COVID-19 misinformation."
"We have clear and established Covid-19 medical misinformation policies [...] to prevent the spread of Covid-19 misinformation that could cause real-world harm," a YouTube statement said.
Although Australia is one of (if not THE) most tyrannical countries when it comes to Coronafascism, Sky News Australia is actually quite red-pilled.
Sky News Australia's great sin seems to be that it doesn't mindlessly parrot The Narrative (TM) of coronavirus panic. For example, one of the most recent videos on the channel features a host criticizing government officials for extending Sydney's "stay-at-home" orders, calling it "death from a thousand cuts." *GASP*
"[W]e support broad discussion and debate on a wide range of topics and perspectives which is vital to any democracy," a spokesperson for Sky News said. "We take our commitment to meeting editorial and community expectations seriously."
Sky News Australia, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., has 1.86 million subscribers on YouTube.
YouTube has a three-strike policy for content creator violations:
- Strike one = one-week suspension.
- Strike two (within 90 days of strike one) = two-week suspension
- Strike three = permanent removal from the platform
