Wrong. A ToS is a one-way agreement and aren't required by any website nor hold any legal standing. Just because a poster follows the ToS doesn't mean the website has to allow their content.

Again, for example, just because a Christian blog/message board doesn't have a ToS that excludes posts about Atheism doesn't mean that they can't remove posts about Atheism if it doesn't fit their mission.

It's a fallacious comparison.

Google isn't a Church. Google sells advertising for clients. That is their primary business.

If Google tells advertisers they are politically unbiased and then turn around and then break that agreement, then they have defaulted on their contract with their clients.

This IS an issue for Google and it's in their best interest to deal with it promptly.

Are youtube videos monetized? Is there an exchange of revenues involved?

Liberals. What they don't like they want banned. What they do like they want to make mandatory.

Sounds even more conservative. Abortion, banned. Pot, banned. Gays, banned. Minorities, banned.

This banning was foreseen years ago. Many tried to warn us that once Google and Youtube got us all attached they'd stop behaving like a neutral good guy and start using their service to serve their own agendas.

time for another google to try and claim the disenchanted as customers.

Looks like you need to do some research if you don't know how Youtube works.

So, this entire censoring at Youtube Twitter and Facebook, are just rogue employees??? No! This crap comes from the top.

Google and Yahoo search engines have wiped him from any search.

Bing had it. But limited.

Would not surprise me if it were true. Libs are fascist by nature, they cannot tolerate anyone who dares offer a different point of view from them.
