Twitter may or may not have made a smart play when they came to the decision that they would not participate in running political ads in this upcoming election.
Google and YouTube (which is owned by Google), as well as Facebook, are continuing to run political ads. However, you know they wouldn’t play fair.
60 Minutes found that over 300 ads for President Trump have been taken down by Google and YouTube for “violating company policies”.
This is all just a cover-up to try and prevent President Trump from winning re-election.
Let me fill you in on a little secret, as someone who is in the marketing world, I see almost on a daily basis people getting their Facebook ads account shut down for almost no reason at all. Now it seems like Google and YouTube are getting in on that action. It’s like they don’t even want to make money.
But here’s what’s crazy, I’ve seen ads for sexual enhancement drugs, or soap specifically for genitals run without any problem. I’ve even had an ad account get banned myself and I still don’t know why to this day, and this was about 5 years ago.
According to Townhall,
During an interview with 60 Minutes, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki was asked to respond to conservative critics who say YouTube discriminates against content creators with a conservative viewpoint.
“Well, first of all,” Wojcicki began, “there are lots of very successful conservative creators on YouTube… Our systems, our algorithms, they don’t have any concept of understanding what’s a Democrat, what’s a Republican. They don’t have any concept of political bias built into them in any way. And we do hear this criticism from all sides. We also have people who come from more liberal backgrounds who complain about discrimination. And so I think that no matter who you are, we are trying to enforce our policies in a consistent way for everybody.”
May we see YouTube’s algorithm to confirm what she is saying? Of course not.
The answer is simple, they hate conservatives, they hate Trump and they’re going to do whatever it takes to prevent him from winning.
