Dan Bongino Ban From YouTube
On Jan. 20, YouTube suspended one of Bongino’s YouTube channels for questioning the effectiveness of using masks against the coronavirus, a violation of the company’s pandemic-related misinformation policy. His subsequent attempt to avoid the one-week suspension by posting from another channel resulted in a permanent ban, according to YouTube.
Youtube releases a statement saying;
“When a channel receives a strike, it is against our Terms of Service to post content or use another channel to circumvent the suspension. If a channel is terminated, the uploader is unable to use, own or create any other YouTube channels.”
As the pandemic has progressed, the video giant has imposed more restrictions on Covid-19 content. It banned conservative commentators such as Joseph Mercola and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in September for spreading vaccine misinformation.
