YouTube demonetizes video compilation of Democrats denying 2016 election results, reinstates day later
10/02/2022 // Gregory Van Dyke // Views

A YouTube video depicting various times Democrat lawmakers and media pundits called the 2016 election results “illegitimate” was demonitized by the company Thursday, only for the decision to be reversed a day later.

The video, a massive compilation created by TK News editor Matt Orfalea, features Democrats including Biden press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and numerous media figures repeatedly claiming Donald Trump “stole the election.”

“After manually reviewing your video, we’ve confirmed that it isn’t suitable for all advertisers,” a message from Youtube to Orfalea stated. “As a result, it will continue to run limited or no ads.”

Within hours, YouTube reversed the decision claiming they made a mistake.

Evidently, YouTube may have flagged the video as a possible violation of its “Elections misinformation policies.”

TK News founder Matt Taibi highlighted the double standard, however, in that YouTube has not enforced its rules on the numerous channels that host the source material from which the video was compiled.

“I’d like to thank YouTube for making our point,” Taibbi wrote on his website prior to its monitization reinstatement. “The material in this video does not promote the idea that any election was stolen or illegitimate. On the contrary, it shows a great mass of comments from Democratic partisans and pundits who themselves make that claim, about the 2016 election. Those comments were not censored or suppressed when made the first time around, by the likes of Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Karine Jean-Pierre, Adam Schiff, Rob Reiner, Tom Arnold, and Chris Hayes, among many others.”

YouTube’s apparent double standard for 2016 and 2020 “election denying” is magnified by the fact they reinstated Orfelea’s video, in blatant disregard of their own policy.

“Whether the firm prohibits such behavior or not, it should be consistent, and isn’t,” writes Taibbi.
