‘Disgusting’: Sky News Australia banned from YouTube over COVID-19 misinformation
YouTube has banned Sky News Australia from uploading content to its website for a week for breaching its COVID-19 misinformation standards.
The video platform would not say which Sky News videos were removed but said it opposed material that “poses a serious risk of egregious harm”.
Speaking with 6PR’s Liam Bartlett, Sky News presenter Chris Kenny said it is an assault on freedom of speech.
“The idea that a foreign owned multi-national digital giant can silence an Australian news service on these spurious grounds is absolutely frightening for freedom of speech, ” he said.
“Obviously they have an agenda here, these are the sort of woke digital giants based in Silicon Valley in California.
“It is disgusting and frightening.”
