James O’Keefe’s Veritas did some undercover work, produced a video of that work, and ran it on YouTube. However, the exposé was of…Alphabet’s Google (which in turn owns YouTube), so YouTube took it down—Alphabet’s censors couldn’t stand the criticism.
The video seems to be back up a few hours later as I write this on the late afternoon of Tuesday.
Alphabet’s attempt to censor, regardless of its (temporary?) failure, is wholly unacceptable, and it demonstrates Alphabet’s (as the owner of Google and YouTube) dishonesty and cowardice.
How is it possible to trust an organization so precious, so self-important, that it can’t even handle criticism of itself?
