YouTube censors another RFK Jr interview; Kennedy says platform protecting political establishment

Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced online that another of his interviews has been removed from social media giant YouTube.

Kennedy announced that his interview with former New York Post reporter Al Guart had been taken off the prominent video-sharing platform.

The Democrat challenger to President Biden in the 2024 primaries has already seen one of his interviews removed from YouTube due to an apparent violation of the website’s vaccine misinformation policy.

“Doubtless, Facebook, YouTube, and the rest received similar requests,” Kennedy wrote.

“In the case of my interview with [Guart], [YouTube] probably acted on its own initiative,” he continued. “It has internalized the political wishes of the establishment to the point where it knows what to censor without being told.”

Google, YouTube’s parent company, did not respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

The spokesperson also said the company “removed a video from the Jordan Peterson channel featuring a conversation with Robert F Kennedy Jr.” and that Google’s “Community Guidelines apply equally to all creators on our platform, regardless of political viewpoint.”

“Under our general vaccine misinformation policies, we remove false claims about currently administered vaccines that are approved and confirmed to be safe and effective by local health authorities and the WHO. This includes content that falsely alleges that approved vaccines are dangerous and cause chronic health effects, claims that vaccines do not reduce transmission or contraction of disease, or contains misinformation on the substances contained in vaccines will be removed. This would include content that falsely says that approved vaccines cause autism, cancer or infertility, or that substances in vaccines can track those who receive them.”
