Censorship of facts not only authoritarian but actively putting lives at risk
An expert on media policy has said that Youtube's censorship on all things covid has put patient's lives at risk and may have added to the toll of vaccine deaths.
The expert, who wants to remain anonymous due to his position in the industry, has told Vision News that the policy activated by YouTube and other social media giants may well have contributed to the death of thousands of people who were prevented from getting the full facts about vaccines. They went on to say:
"Youtube are especially dangerous, they're actively censoring all Covid content. You are not allowed to say anything negative about any aspect of the Pandemic; you're not allowed to question the science, criticise the World Health Organisation or even criticise China's role in all this, and you're definitely not allowed to say anything about people dying from the vaccine, thats information they definitely don't want you sharing."
"You're not even allowed to publish official government figures on deaths, you'll get that content removed, a ban and if you do it again, you'll be permanently suspended, and these are the actual figures from the government's yellow card system."
"We've now seen over 1300 deaths as a direct result of vaccines in the UK alone, people should know this stuff, how can they make an informed decision on taking the vaccine if they don't know all the facts?"
"People are dying, at a rate never seen before for a vaccine, and people have a right to know, but Youtube have worked hand in glove with governments controlling the information about them, even though they are still maintaining they are a content platform, not a content provider"
"I get people emailing me every day worried about being silenced, and many of them are doctors, scientists and pathologists."
He goes on to say:
"when all this is over and there is the inevitable class action from the families of the dead, will Facebook be prosecuted for withholding the facts about the vaccine? "
The information, banned by Youtube is as follows:
As of 9 June 2021, for the UK, 70,950 Yellow Cards have been reported for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, 200,860 have been reported for the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca, 4,267 for the COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna and 790 have been reported where the brand of the vaccine was not specified.
For the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca vaccines and COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna the overall reporting rate is around 3 to 7 Yellow Cards per 1,000 doses administered.
