YouTube reportedly demonetized an interview with Dave Rubin of the popular internet show the Rubin Report and American political philosopher and author Thomas Sowell. The video was monetized shortly after Rubin publicly demanded an explanation from YouTube.
Dave Rubin, the host of the Rubin Report, an internet series in which Rubin interviews a number of media and internet personalities, took to Twitter to reveal that an interview he conducted with political philosopher and author Thomas Sowell had been demonetized. When a video is demonetized, it means that the creator of the video no longer receives a percentage of ad revenue a primary source of income for many YouTuber creators and internet content developers.
Rubin called for YouTube to explain the demonetization of the interview in two tweets, in one Rubin stated: Just finish fun event at @Dartmouth and my guys showed me that Part 1 with Thomas Sowell was demonetized. It had been monetized which means a human went back in and hit it. What the actual fuck @TeamYouTube? Or Does the algorithm pass things and then get them if they succeed?

Shame. On YouTube
My Gab rise and Youtube fail.
Time for Youtube, Google and Facebook to be regulated as DNC political action committees and have them follow all FEC election law.
That, or they need to simply treat all customers the same no matter their viewpoint.
Would Verizon be allowed to block all their customers from calling the Trump campaign? Would they be allowed to refuse cell service to the 2020 Trump campaign?
When you look at the 2020 campaign unfolding....one of the top five topics for the period will be regulating the internet companies. This won’t go well for companies like YouTube or Facebook. I expect a lot of Democrats will be staking out their positions to have things unregulated.
I am all in the 100% freedom “their company their game rules”, IF all customers are treated the same.
But they are now democrat political action wings, not legitimate businesses.
Sounds like youtube committed an act of theft.
Just think what democrats could do with that power.
Look how they abused other powers for the 8 years of the Obama administration.
Such great things with the insurance and banking merger, too.
Yes - another good example.
What is My Gab?
Saw an online (YT, via Roku) ad for a new social media service, started with V, probably Vizzi[something or other], but can’t find it with Google. There are a ton of alternatives even today, to Facebook, and even for YouTube. The third head of the evil critter is Twitter.

Youtube, Google, Facebook and Twitter started this information war.
We will end it by sending them into the ash-heap of history.
Bust the trusts!
The first thing to do is make Duck Duck Go your default search engine on all browsers on all devices in your life, minimizing use of Google.
Seems to me if they are giving a special platform for Democrat positions, ideas, pols, etc., as opposed to Republican ones, then that is by our perhaps stupid laws a form of illegal campaign contributions anyway.
Duck duck go does not have the same level of functionality as Google, unfortunately. I have had to go back to Google on several occasions last week because of that. Duck duck go has a ways to go before it can fully replace Google.
Still, I suppose, even if you replace 75% of Google use with Duck duck go, that represents a loss of revenue to Google. And the more people that do that, the more revenue lost.
Gab is a Twitter alternative.
Is there a website for this? Or someplace I can learn a little more? When I put in mygab it went to a Bangladeshi page.
I use Bing. And, about once a year I can turn in my search credits and give my son 3 months of Xbox gold. I know it is still some big behemoth liberal hole, but it is not Google. And they are US patriotic on our Holidays.
“Time for Youtube, Google and Facebook to be regulated as DNC political action committees and have them follow all FEC election law.”
Based on what? Because YouTube is getting strict on whom can make money on their platform?
Political people on both sides are having this issue, and genres all kinds are as well.
Thanks, but that doesn't work on my poor old tired hardware. I've used it in the past, but every website is building marketing databases under the pretense of "security" and "privacy". DGG is no exception. My first favorite search engine was AltaVista, which was first among equals back when there were still articles in magazines telling readers where to go to find hand-curated lists of links and such. Google arrived and worked so nicely it just blew AltaVista, Lycos, and the rest out of the water. Yahoo (which was not a search engine, but rather a list of links) tried to compete via volunteer curators. Then journaling caught on (including open-source versions of what we now call social media, and that is almost synonymous with Facebook), that morphed into 'blogging, and then the amateur video-hosting sites popped up like mushrooms (YouTube won that, but there are good-sized competitors).
