GREG GUTFELD (HOST): For more important matters, actually, notably, censorship. On Saturday, evolutionary biologist Bret Weinstein, Weinstein tweeted this. "My June 1st discussion with Dr. Pierre Kory on the DarkHorse podcast has been removed by YouTube for allegedly violating their community guidelines against spam, deceptive practices and scams."
Now, before it had been removed. I actually listened to this chat between a biologist and a clinician discussing his experience prescribing ivermectin for COVID, a practice done by other clinicians, given it has little to no side effects and by their understanding can reduce symptoms.
Now, this happened after YouTube also suspended the account of Senator Ron Johnson on Friday for seven days after he posted a pro-hydroxychloroquine video. A YouTube spokesperson said it violated the medical misinformation policies. They also removed a video of Dr. Kory testifying to the Senate -- to the Senate. Maybe they should stop calling it YouTube and start calling it "MyTube, and the rest of you can eat it."
Meanwhile, YouTube gladly hosts medical videos with more quacks than Daffy Duck's family reunion. You can get bad advice about everything, from diet and exercise to curing STDs with apple cider vinegar, which doesn't work by the way, and it ruins a nice Cobb salad. Those crazy videos? Harmless self-expression, but a chat between two medical professionals. Whoa, that's dropped faster than Brian Stelter's jaw outside a corn dog factory. Now, this is happening as other tech titans are cracking down on speech. They are the new censors. These ministers of information can turn the spigot on or off at will.
