I know how computers and algorithms work. Videos with a higher view count show up more often in YouTube’s algorithm and are also more likely to get flagged for review by some overzealous left wing viewer.

If this was some vast conspiracy then how to you explain why channels like infowars exist on YouTube? The reason some of these big companies aren’t being blocked is again about money. Many of them are advertisers themselves.

Youtube’s moderators may have their own personal biases for sure but as a company they’ve been taken over by the suits and are beholden to their advertisers. It’s those advertisers who are threatening to pull their money out if their brands are shown on what they consider as “controversial” videos.
