You(Tube) Will Not Replace Us!

•, Greg Johnson

The first wave of this new campaign was in June. That is when CounterCurrentsTV got the axe. But now the censorship is escalating.

The golden age of YouTube is over. A couple of years ago, YouTube decided that to sell more ads, they needed to get people to watch more videos. To get people to watch more videos, they created a recommendation algorithm that would nudge people outside their ruts and comfort zones, by suggesting videos that were adjacent to but somewhat different from their established preferences.

Sure enough, people started watching more videos, and as they broadened their intellectual horizons, they came into contact with White Nationalist, National Populist, and Identitarian videos. And if people started out with such preferences, YouTube would serve them more centrist content.
