YouTube has deleted the account of socially conservative news outlet LifeSiteNews. On Wednesday, LifeSiteNews reported that YouTube permanently deleted their account, along with every video. LifeSiteNews claims to have had over 300,000 followers on YouTube. LifeSiteNews was founded by the Campaign Life Coalition in Toronto in 1997. The outlet gives a voice to social conservatives and emphasises “traditional Judeo-Christian principles” in its reporting. Speaking to Breitbart, LifeSiteNews VP Gualberto Garcia Jones said that the move by YouTube was expected given the increasing censorship across mainstream social media platforms. “The truth is, we’ve been anticipating this for some time. YouTube, along with other Big Tech corporations, are simply not interested in allowing anyone to dissent from their state-approved, liberal ideology,” he said.
