WEEKEND READ: YouTube Nixes Metaxas; Republicans Denied Air Time; Cicadas Anyone?
Christian host Eric Metaxas joins Rumble after YouTube censorship
BY DIDI RANKOVIC
Another conservative figure is experiencing censorship on YouTube, reports say, as they cite radio host Eric Metaxas who revealed that Google’s video platform has removed all videos of his radio show from the channel.
Metaxas, who is a Christian author, announced the news on Twitter, but didn’t seem at all surprised. “FINALLY,” he wrote, “YouTube decided that because we violated their ‘community standards’ my show has been entirely kicked off their platform.”
He then went on to say sarcastically that “in related news” the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the North Korean government also dislike the videos – a comparison often made between the ongoing censorship on YouTube and other huge western social media platforms, and free speech suppression under those regimes.
FINALLY… Youtube decided that because we violated their “community standards” my show has been entirely kicked off their platform. In related news, the CCP and the North Korean govt don’t like our videos. So would you PLEASE subscribe to us on @Rumble?https://t.co/vIs0Pn4nFq

Establishment Media Admit Denying Republicans Airtime After January 6
BY JACOB BLISS
Key figures across the establishment media have confirmed denying Republicans who voted against certifying the Electoral College results airtime is a daily routine on their broadcasts.
CNN’s Jake Tapper recently said during a podcast interview on the New York Times’ “Sway” that he is engaging in the practice of not even inviting such Republicans on his show.
“It’s not a policy, but it’s a philosophy where I just don’t want to deal with it,” Tapper said.
He then added he’s willing to have only “about a third of the House Republican caucus” on his show. Ultimately, as Politico Playbook reported, this means he doesn’t agree with the “philosophy” or “want to deal with” any of the Republican leadership.
