American Principles Project Back on YouTube After Backlash Ends Censorship

1 0 0

YouTube temporarily “terminated” the American Principles Project’s YouTube channel over Columbus Day weekend, contending that the pro-family organization had violated its terms of service by reuploading content from a “previously terminated channel.”

Following backlash from conservatives and lawmakers, YouTube reinstated the American Principles Project’s account Tuesday. Google told The Daily Signal that the decision to reinstate the Project’s account was made “upon review of their appeal” and that YouTube is working with the American Principles Project “to explain our policies so they can make the best decisions for their channel moving forward.”

Jon Schweppe, American Principles Project director of policy and government affairs, told The Daily Signal on Tuesday that the Project did not hear from YouTube for more than a day after it was informed that it had been terminated. YouTube ultimately reinstated the American Principles Project’s account and told the organization that it had been given a “warning strike.”

Google told The Daily Signal that it temporarily banned the American Principles Project account for “reuploading content from a previously terminated channel,” namely, Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast. Bannon previously served as White House chief strategist and senior counselor to former President Donald Trump.
