Youtube Expands Censorship, Blocks SANA And Hezbollah Media Wing In Syria

Youtube has expanded its efforts to censor alternative sources of the information about the conflict in Syria. Last week, Youtube banned the channel of Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), a Syrian state-run media supporting the Assad government. This week, Youtube banned the channel of the Syrian Military Media, a Hezbollah media wing in Syria.

  1. This is probably just a taster: Within five years YouTube will be unrecognisable as a free-for-all platform: A licence will be required to post on it; censorship will be draconian, and anyone viewing it will be required to submit their address & national insurance number.
    If you think I am fearmongering just watch this space.

  2. The powers that be just don’t get it,WE DON’T believe You Any More,we are in the post WND s’ and Iraq war ,you lie and lie,our elites are killing us,if YouTube goes down this road it will destroy their business model..Who wants CNN bull#@% lies controlling the narrative, even now mainstream media is lying about the death toll in Mosul and the empire using ileagle weapons like white phosphorus and uranium tipped missiles, a total cover up,and these WMD s have been used in Syria..p.s. The info war in Syria was lost when the FSA started murdering and eating people, and slaughtering Christians..

    • I think you’re right, Ozy, they still haven’t gotten it. I suspect at some point it’s going to begin to sink in, though. I doubt we’ll see much change in their behavior, even if it does.

  3. I want No more war,and for us in Europe Not to be hunted by knife wielding Manics or teen kids blown up,and for this to begin to happen, al qeada/all nusra ,plus Isis must Not have a base of operation of operations, meaning No more failed states,also this will save Europe from the migrant crisis,may I just say as a alternate news source,Fig trees is top notch,sites like this educate people ,and indeed give the war hawks less wriggle room,because they have No support by the people, a synical me would think they would love to orchestrate another 911 to get our blood up..

    • You make a good point, Ozy. Failed states in the Middle East are disaster not only for the people who live there but for Europe as well. Though I don’t give European leaders credit for a lot of intelligence, they surely are smart enough to at least recognize this. The fact that they continue to support the US government’s regime change endeavors makes you wonder who they are really working for.
