Right Side Broadcasting, the small conservative broadcast network known for featuring a wide array of pro-Trump commentary has said it has coincidentally been temporarily banned by YouTube.
According to The Hill, on Monday YouTube informed RSBN that it had removed several videos the company had posted for violating their “elections misinformation” policies, including Trump’s recent rally in Waco, Texas, remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), and an exclusive interview he granted the right-wing broadcaster at Mar-a-Lago.
“Just one day before RSBN was set to cover President Trump’s arraignment in Manhattan, YouTube has resumed its censorship practices and suspendedRSBN’s channel, blocking our ability to livestream for seven days,” the company said in a statement.
When reached by The Hill for comment, Ivy Choi, a YouTube spokesperson, said the company “removed content from and issued a strike to the Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN) channel for violating our election integrity policy, which prohibits content claiming the 2020 U.S. or 2022 Brazil presidential elections were stolen.”
“Accordingly, the videos have been removed and a strike has been applied to the channel, and as a result, uploads and live streams by your account are suspended for a week,” a YouTube representative told RSBN, it said.
“As a result, this channel is temporarily suspended from publishing new videos or livestreams,” Choi said. “While we do allow content with educational, documentary, scientific or artistic context, the content we removed from this channel did not provide sufficient context.
RSBN is among the media companies covering the increasingly chaotic scene outside the Manhattan courtroom where the former President’s arraignment took place.
RSBN’s Brian Glenn interviewed MAGA Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) Tuesday morning as she protested outside of the Manhattan court. At one point, Greene gushed that Trump will be joining other historical figures who have been arrested.
“But I will say this, Brian and I truly feel it. We don’t want this fight. We don’t want it. We’re not picking this fight. But the fight is at the door. It’s right here at our doorstep,” the Congresswoman said.
“And so it’s up to us if we if we stand up against it. And you know me and I know who you are. We’re the types, we are going to stand up against. And we will never back down. And we will stand in support of our very incredible, amazing, best president in history of my lifetime. And innocent. Innocent,” Greene continued.
“And I mean, think about gosh, think about this. President Trump is joining some of the most incredible people in history being arrested today. Nelson Mandela was arrested, served time in prison. Jesus! Jesus was arrested and murdered by the Roman government,” she said.
“There have been many people throughout history that have been arrested and persecuted by radical, corrupt governments. And it’s beginning today in New York City. And I just can’t believe it’s happening. But I’ll always support him. He’s done nothing wrong. He’s done everything right,” Greene concluded
And I think a lot of our viewers feel the same way as they are very supportive of the president,” Glenn said agreeing with the Georgia lawmaker.
