YouTube Targets Video Criticizing Chinese Government

Questions regarding tennis star Peng Shuai amid allegations she was raped by a senior Chinese Communist Party leader prompted YouTube to take action against a podcast.

A social media post has since been deleted when Peng accused former Deputy Prime Minister Zhang Gaoli of forcing her to have sex against his will three years ago, according to reports. Fox News. The post was posted on November 2nd. Chinese censors deleted the post and locked her account on Weibo, a Chinese platform similar to Twitter.

Because Peng has not been seen since the posts, her whereabouts and her allegations became an international incident.

All of which is the premise for the podcast “Breaking Points with Krystal and Saagar”

Then YouTube enters the image and with just a few push of a button, no more ads run first videotapes, based on Washington Free Beacon. That penalty means the podcast won’t generate ad revenue from the video.

Co-host Saagar Enjeti says maybe YouTube is looking big companies do a huge business in China.

“It is possible that this could be the result of influence from the CCP,” he told the Free Beacon.

“Or, at the very least, YouTube must understand that advertisers like Nike and other large multinationals might be worried” about their ads appearing near content about China. authoritarian government in low light conditions.

In a Twitter post, Enjeti mocked YouTube’s move.

The Free Beacon reported that YouTube’s complaint is that the video is “not suitable for all advertisers”.

Enjeti said when the ad was stripped, he first assumed it was YouTube’s automatic content moderation system and required manual review of the video.

The decision not to allow ads remains the same.

It’s important for YouTube that videos “never have monetization turned off”.

Instead, it became a content pen that YouTube flagged asking advertisers to specifically opt-in if they wanted to advertise on such a designated video.

The anger towards Peng has reached the point China released video showing Peng. But the dialogue in the video has raised eyebrows.

“Tomorrow, isn’t tomorrow November 20th?” Peng’s coach said.

A woman in the video says “21st” before the coach says “21st November”. They do this again with the woman saying, “Tomorrow is the 21st,” and the coach saying, “November 21.”

Gordon Chang, author of “China’s Coming Fall,” verified the dialogue for Fox News, noting how odd it was.

“You would say ‘tomorrow, the 20th’ or ‘tomorrow, Saturday,’ but they don’t like to use the full date,” Chang said.

He notes that it’s also odd to record such a random conversation, and the quality of the video makes it hard to tell when it was taken. YouTube Targets Video Criticizing Chinese Government
