I know a lot of Youtube channels are suffering since they restricted advertising on their channels and demonetize their videos by default and they have to beg Youtube to review EACH video and sometimes they get it back, sometimes not. This is why Patreon is so popular.
Now Youtube has their own method of paying or joining a particular channel but they keep 30% of the donation which is way more than what Patreon charges.
Ebay did the same thing when they tried to be the conscious of the internet and restrict what people could sell and their stock tanked and the sellers left. They put restrictions on everything and let buyers rat on people who may be selling un PC stuff, now it is hard to find many sellers that are in America, most are from china.
Ya a few of the channels I watch are Police-ish ones and if they show a shooting they are guaranteed to get demonitized. Even though the source of the original video was broadcast on TV. But if it is a Bork Bork Nom Nom correcting someone that is hunky dory...
So youtube bending the knee to CNN, MSNBC, and others didn't work out? I'm shocked that youtube listening to their competition didn't end well. Bring back Alex Jones and stop putting shitty corporate nonsense at the top of searches. No one goes to youtube for CNN or NBC.
The problem is CNN and others start calling anyone who advertises with youtube and it scares these corporate idiots when they get a few calls so they pull ads.
Although I do think the Jones ban was all about Trump getting elected. Owen Benjamin is on YT every day talking about the Jews and searching for a Jewish janitor.
