Just when you think that the censorship in the land of the illusion of freedom can’t get any worse, Google announces they will censor a whole new crop of thought. Google and YouTube will no longer allow any ads with content pushing “climate change denial,” saying it “contradicts scientific consensus.”
Silencing dissent has never once proved the dissenters wrong.
Many are upset, however, others have suggested simply moving their content to platforms that are open to ideas and offer the free exchange of them.
The Big Tech giant announced the move in a Thursday blog post. The company is updating its policies on ads and monetization in order to “ensure a brand-safe environment” for advertisers, and to “protect users” from “unreliable claims” as well as “fake medical cures or anti-vaccine advocacy.”
