‘Chilling Big Tech censorship’: YouTube accused of terminating TalkRADIO channel, allegedly for airing views of lockdown skeptics

Google’s video platform YouTube has been accused of terminating the popular British TalkRADIO show for hosting figures that were skeptical of coronavirus lockdown just hours after the UK entered a new, stricter lockdown.

The official TalkRADIO channel – which had 250,000 subscribers – was deleted on Tuesday and, currently, it is not known why.

British political tabloid blog Guido Fawkes theorized that the channel had been deleted because of its history of airing views that are skeptical of government coronavirus lockdowns amid the  pandemic.

YouTube’s removal of the channel took place just hours after UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that England would be put under an even stricter lockdown from Monday, in an effort to stop the spread of the virus.
