  • We can't afford to show you this

  • Or this

  • Or this

  • Because YouTube doesn't want us to.

  • Welcome to China...Censored.

  • Because censorship seems to be what YouTube wants.

  • If you're watching this show, I assume you're interested in what's happening in Chinathe

  • kind of stuff the Chinese regime wants to cover up.

  • The analysis you won't get from any other media.

  • The jokes you find mildly amusing.

  • But YouTube, which is owned by Google, does not want us to talk about certainsensitive

  • China topics.

  • In fact, they punish us when we do.

  • Most of the time, YouTube is not outright censoring China Uncensored.

  • Instead, they demonetize content that violates their vaguecommunity guidelines.”

  • A demonetized video means it gets no ads or so-calledlimited ads”, which is pretty

  • close to no ads.

  • And after a video has been demonetized, generally YouTube won't recommend it as much, so the

  • number of people who see it is limited.

  • For example, a few days ago we put out an episode about how Chinese police are stealing

  • ordinary people's motorcycles, right out from under them.

  • Demonetized.

  • Can't have people seeing how Chinese police abuse people.

  • You see, over the years I've found a distinct pattern to what gets demonetizedany footage

  • from China that makes the Communist Party look bad.

  • Take for instance the coronavirus.

  • The Communist Party's initial response to the coronavirus was a coverup followed by

  • brutal suppression of Chinese people.

  • We showed you what the Party was doing in this episode, the Coronavirus Cure isn't

  • Authoritarianism.

  • So let's take a look at what the People's Republic of China did to deal with the Coronavirus.

  • Starting with how Chinese officials rounded people up and threw them into mass quarantine

  • camps.

  • And if people went outside without a mask, they did this.

  • And this.

  • And this.This guy didn't wear a mask, so they tied him to a pillar.

  • Still without a mask.

  • These ethnic Uyghurs weren't supposed to go outside.

  • So officials hung signs from their necks calling them dogs.”

  • The Chinese Communist Party's coronavirus response was horrific.

  • But at the time, people were praising the Communist Party's response.

  • Some Western media even suggested you might be better off sheltering in China.

  • The New York Times suggested that open societies were a problem.

  • So we figured it was important to show you how bad it really was in China.

  • And when we did that, YouTube hit us hard.

  • First this episode was demonetized...

  • ...then YouTube flat out deleted the video without explanation.

  • Completely censored.

  • We made a huge stink about it on social media, so they put it back up, again without explanation,

  • but now it was ineligible for monetization.

  • Plus, it was now age restricted.

  • You had to be over 18 to see the video, and you'd see this message before you could

  • watch it.

  • Oh, our video wasinappropriate or offensive”?!

  • I think YouTube's censorship wasinappropriate and offensive”.

  • And this was far from an isolated incident.

  • Most of our coronavirus coverage in the early days of the pandemic got demonetized.

  • YouTube wasn't giving any explanation.

  • But by that point I had noticed a pattern.

  • It seemed like any time we showed Chinese authorities using violence, we would get demonetized.

  • Back in 2019, almost all our coverage of the Hong Kong protests were getting demonetized

  • too.

  • Here's a clip from our episode Hong Kong Police Lay Siege to University Students.

  • Over the weekend, Hong Kong police once again surrounded Polytechnic University of Hong

  • Kong, known as PolyU.

  • They began arresting students, and...stomping on their heads?!

  • Jeez.

  • Overnight clashes began at PolyU on Sunday evening.

  • Police fired volleys of tear gas and blocked the exits after protesters set fires on a

  • bridge.

  • More than a thousand people were trapped inside the university, including reporters, medics,

  • and high school and university students.

  • It's important for people to see that kind of footageto know what's really happening

  • in Hong Kong.

  • It was demonetized.

  • Here's another Hong Kong episode that YouTube age restricted and labeled ineligible for

  • monetization.

  • Clashes between protesters and police in Kong Kong over the weekend turned parts of the

  • city into a bona fide battlefield.

  • Complete with plenty of police violence, rubber bullets, and enough tear gas to make Chuck

  • Norris cry.

  • Good one 2019 Chris.

  • But demonetized.

  • And it wasn't just the coronavirus and Hong Kong stories getting demonetized.

  • If we showed footage of Uyghurs shackled and blindfolded, YouTube would demonetize us.

  • When we covered anti-China protests in Vietnam, YouTube would demonetize us.

  • Here's footage of police cracking down on protesters inside China.

  • Including beating up an old woman.

  • YouTube demonetized AND age-restricted it.

  • The crazy thing is, all this was being done without any explanation from YouTube.

  • Eventually, under pressure, YouTube began to tell creators why something was demonetized

  • after human review by someone at YouTube.

  • We'd get notifications like this.

  • It says our video containssituations showing hurt, damage, or injury.”

  • In other words, it exposes what a brutal authoritarian regime is doingand we can't have that!

  • Even though YouTube's policies supposedly allow you to show this footage when there's

  • educational or documentary context.

  • You know, like the fact that we're reporting the news.

  • But even when we didn't show that kind of footage, we'd still often get demonetized.

  • This episode, Coronavirus: 2nd Wave Hits Chinawas demonetized forharmful or dangerous acts

  • such asaccidents, pranks or stunts”.

  • A human reviewer made that claim.

  • There were no stunts or pranks in that video.

  • That makes no sense.

  • Unless you consider China's coverup of coronavirus infections a stunt.

  • But I don't think that's what YouTube meant.

  • This episode, Hunter Biden's China Deals Under Investigation was demonetized for Adult

  • content such exposed breasts, full nudity or animal mating.

  • Look, I know there are the Hunter Biden sex tapes floating around out there, but our episode

  • only talked about Biden's China deals.

  • It didn't show any of the stuff YouTube claims it did.

  • By the way, that was also one of our weekly news roundup episodes.

  • So we also talked about alleged Chinese spy Fang Fang targeting US politicians, how China

  • is using big tech to arrest Uyghurs, and the US sanctioning Chinese officials for the crackdown

  • on Hong Kong.

  • Which one of those wassexual behavior, language, or expressions?”

  • And in case there's still any confusion about what YouTube is really doing here, this

  • episode, China Must Have a Chernobyl Moment () was demonetized forsituations that

  • may endanger participants”.

  • That episodeis a 35 minute interview over skype.

  • It's just me and the guest talking.

  • I don't see how that could possibly be a situation thatendangers participants”...wait,

  • unless YouTube is making a subtle threat to stop interviewing Chinese dissidents.

  • OK, I don't think it was.

  • But I still can't imagine the reason it was demonetized.

  • Especially since that demonetization was confirmed by a human reviewer.

  • So clearly, people at YouTube don't want you to know what's really going on in China.

  • I'm not sure why, since YouTube is so vague about it.

  • And since they're so vague, I'm left to my imagination.

  • Which goes to places like, I wonder if YouTube is being influenced by Google.

  • Since Google is working with the Communist Party on Artificial Intelligence Research.

  • Which might benefit China's military.

  • And of course, Google had once tried to launch a censored search app for the China market.

  • But if Google and YouTube are trying to get us to tone down our message, we're not going

  • to do it.

  • No matter how much they take away our ads, or even delete our videos, we won't stop

  • uncensoring China.

  • But to do this, we need your help.

  • YouTube ad revenue is unreliable.

  • It's up and down and sometimes gonedepending on what topics we cover.

  • video editors, sound editors, and of course rent on our studio here in New York.
