AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): [Drs. Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi] put together a video, and they were interviewed by a local news station, and they put the video on YouTube, and it was pulled from YouTube. Here's the video. 

EARHARDT: So after it was on air, YouTube pulled the video. Here is the statement from YouTube.


EARHARDT: What is your response to that? 

MIKE HUCKABEE (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): That was nonsense word salad on the part of YouTube. These guys are medical doctors. They are scientists. For heaven's sakes, they didn't say anything that was really disputable. They were giving facts, figures. They were invoking some opinion in terms of giving analysis of the facts they presented. I thought the most salient point they made in the course of the video, which I did see before it got pulled, was that historically when you have a pandemic, you quarantine the sick people, not the healthy people. And that was sort of like, you know, the light bulb went off -- the one deep in my stomach that I had swallowed last week after I washed it down with some chlorox. And again, you know, that was a nonsense thing people accused the president of saying, which he never said. But I think YouTube has to answer for the selective content and the way that they have censored anything that just doesn't fit their own agenda. Something is wrong with that, with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google.

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Unbelievable. I can't underline this enough how alarming this is. These are doctors that came up with hard number and stats. All they said was, “Argue with my numbers. I'm not just giving an opinion. I'm not spouting out on a soapbox on a vacant L.A. street corner. I am a doctor. How dare you take down what my facts revealed?"
