Youtube censors US journalist The London Daily News 12 May, 2009
News Desk

Radio and internet journalist Alex Jones has been censored by the internet giant Youtube with the removal of the "Alex Jones Channel" from the site, causing revulsion across the United States and Europe, in what is increasingly being seen as another example of a "Big Brother" intervention in the democratic process.

Alex Jones best known for his investigative journalism around the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre and his conspiratorial theories describes himself on his website as:

"Syndicated radio journalist and documentary filmmaker Alex Jones has been on the front lines of the growing global information war from ground zero to the occult playgrounds of the power-mad elite."

The "Alex Jones show" on YouTube was attracting around 1 million views a week, and was responsible for the "The Obama Deception" which has clocked 1,897,810 views.

YouTube apparently pulled the "Alex Jones Channel" from its site for a potential legal action from a US newspaper claiming a potential copyright breach over Jones use of its articles on his radio programme.

Increasingly YouTube has been scorned for its move away from its foundation of "free speech video" to being seen as part of the establishment it tried to redefine when it was first established.

By design

Youtube and its underlying technology were designed to do exactly this. The problem with mainstream media outlets is that they often, in a cartel-like fashion, decide on the technology used to convey their work. The technology they develop and deploy is inherently hostile. Youtube, on the other hand, is based on interactivity and presents its users' individual content as 'their work'. If there was bandwidth symmetry and net neutrality, nobody would need Youtube anymore, and both the underlying technology and the censorship power would be void.

My understanding of

My understanding of copyright and using news stories by other providers is that's it's ok to reference something, though not in it entirety, give credit to the copyright owner and broadcast away. I wish more details were forthcoming. This impacts us all.

Jason Bermas' YouTube Channel has now been pulled....

I really like Bermas. Jason has an excellent approach in addressing issues. He is extremely active in standing up for truth. His YouTube channel has been suspended. (See here ...and here... )
