In a follow up note about YouTube censorship – this interview with Sunetra Gupta, , was removed by YouTube saying it “violated YouTube’s guidelines”. After an appeal and some push back on Twitter, it was eventually reinstated. YouTube is at least consistent – we covered the removal of Dr. Wittkowski’s video (another eminent epidemiologist with a lot to say on the current situation) in our news feed on May 21st.
An excellent use of 30 minutes of your life – probably wise to watch it soon. Someone remarked recently that there seemed to be no obvious alternative scientific view in the news. That’s because if it doesn’t espouse WHO recommendations it won’t be covered by Main Stream Media and, as explicitly stated by YouTube’s CEO Susan Wajcicki in her removal of Dr Wittkowski’s video, it will be censored from Social Media.
