Say what? Neither of us said anything like that. Ridiculous idiots. Here’s what’s happened: We discussed the fact that YouTube had previously demonetized his videos about the media’s — including YouTube’s — double standard on criticism of the 2016 election vs the 2020 one. Taibbi wrote about it here, here, here and here, where they admit they were wrong and are sorry. Now they are claiming us discussing that is enough to get my entire interview of him removed.
When I click “appeal this decision here,” I get this:
Save us, Francis E. Dec!
UPDATE: Appeal rejected.
On the dashboard thing it says “Our review confirmed that this content violates YouTube’s Community Guidelines. No further appeal is possible.”
UPDATE 2: After Matt Taibbi and Matt Orfalea helped raise the issue on Twitter:
appreciate the context, we'll take a look at this and will let you know what we find. it may take a few days, but we'll relay everything back to you as soon as we get an update
