Credit: Jawa Report When YouTube banned me, but not the hate imams by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2017 One of the many maddening takeaways from the London Bridge jihad attack is this: If you post videos on YouTube radicalizing Muslim viewers to kill innocent people, YouTube will leave you alone. But if you post... Read More
Yesterday, I spotlighted the unmourned casualty of Obama’s foreign policy/national security disaster bus: The First Amendment. It gets worse. Last night, the LA Times reported that the White House leaned on YouTube to censor the anti-Islam movie that provided jihadis with handy cover and pretext for their long-planned attack on our diplomatic posts and embassies...

This weekend, a video produced by Free Market America went live on YouTube -- and it is racking up nationwide hits. Deservedly so. The Earth Day-timed message is compelling and extremely relevant this campaign season. As the group writes: "The environmental agenda has been infected by extremism — it's become an economic suicide pact. And... Read More
DhimmiTube.
Color me unsurprised: Bob Owens notes that YouTube is censoring content on the Israeli Defense Forces video channel. YouTube didn't earn the AllahTube and DhimmiTube nicknames for nothing! (Photoshop credit - Jawas) *** More coverage on the Bcast. And make sure you click here for must-see video: Injured Palestinian girl: Hamas is the cause of... Read More
Watch it on YouTube! Writes National Post's Kelly McPharland: "As the Keynesian revival sweeps the policy establishment, here's a fine antidote. It's a video on the Keynesian myths behind the global push to crank up government spending and the size of government to stimulate the economy. In less than 8 minutes, Dan Mitchell, a Senior...

Several weeks ago, I spoke with GWU law professor Jeffrey Rosen about my curious experiences with YouTube's mystery censors. Longtime readers will remember the battle over "First, They Came." For the past two years, my attempts to re-upload the little video about the Mohammed Cartoons and violent jihad were blocked. Other users were able to... Read More
Double standards.
I'm so not surprised.
Takedown.
You know that I've had plenty of experience with YouTube shenanigans and abuse of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) by speech-squelchers. Now, my friends at the Competitive Enterprise Institute are experiencing it. Sam Kazman, CEI's general counsel, e-mails: Michelle: As you might know, two weeks ago we released a 60-second public service spot criticizing... Read More
Foiling Chinese Net Nanny.
Via Dan Nystedt at PC World, the Great Firewall of China is trying to block out news of the Tibet riots: China has blocked access to Google News and YouTube in an apparent attempt to stop the spread of video footage related the rioting going on in several cities in Tibet, including the capital Lhasa....

What goes around, comes around. After earning a notorious reputation in the blogosphere for stamping out videos critical of Islam and the Danish cartoon debacle because they contained "inappropriate content" and threatening to suspend accounts of anti-jihad video creators, YouTube got gagged by Pakistan over...a video critical of Islam and the Danish cartoon debacle. The... Read More
Scrappleface fights jihad on YouTube with caption sabotage:
Don't try to escape.
MSM journalists and their protectionists don't like Internet researchers, bloggers, and talk radio hosts doing their jobs for them. They are the anointed dirt-diggers and scoop-holders. If the uncredentialed masses use their tools and methods against them and in opposition to their agenda, that's not journalism in their biased minds. That's stalking. (It's the same... Read More
How does your garden grow?
I wrote a piece for the NYPost published today on CNN's horticultural journalism (reprinted below). Filed it before we learned about the CAIR intern. CNN host Howard Kurtz quotes CNN senior veep David Bohrman bleating that they "bent over backwards to be fair." I quote him below, too. Glenn Reynolds notes that CNN used Google...to... Read More
CAIR brags: They taught her well: (Hat tip - American Infidels)
Giggle.
Via The Caucus, one of my favorite GOP presidential candidates, Duncan Hunter, sent a merry message to Hillary Clinton. Rep. Hunter fielded the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" lecture from Team Hillary campaign member Keith Kerr--the gay retired military officer whom CNN tried to pass off as an undecided Republican voter. Hunter welcomed the plant: Maybe... Read More
Time to defoliate.
Allah's got the vid clip of CNN's Anderson Cooper getting caught flat-footed as Bill Bennett calls him out on Plant Number 1, Hillary lesbian/gay campaign committee member and retired military officer Keith Kerr. Also: CNN reportedly excised Kerr's question from the rebroadcast of the debate in the wee hours of the morning. Looks like they've... Read More

But hopefully, we can get Stephen on the phone during our livestream and check in with his, uh, progress throughout the night. :) Steve's got... Read More
The CNN/YouTube debate.
Hot Air's Bryan Preston has contributed a video question for Wednesday's CNN/YouTube GOP debate: Wouldn't you like to know the GOP candidates' answers? How many could actually stick to a simple "yes or no?" Chances are low that our question will get picked. But who knows? Maybe a snowman costume would have helped our chances...... Read More
"I'd like to invite Joe Biden to come to Clio."
Jered Townsend, the gun owner smeared and mocked by Joe Biden, has a follow-up video and invitation for Senator Smirk.
Update 8:00pm Eastern: Who's in? Rick Moran surveys the GOP field. Bryan Preston has a new Hot Air vid urging Republicans not to run from the scheduled Sept. 17 YouTube/CNN debate. Click to watch: I know. The CNN/YouTube Democrat debate was a circus. I said so. But Republicans shouldn't sit out their turn. And conservatives... Read More
Universal Music Group is at it again: Another heavy-handed crackdown on a YouTube user.
You remember our successful battle against Universal Music Group? The record industry giant tried to abuse copyright law to yank a video we put on YouTube criticizing Akon. With the help of the Electronic Freedom Foundation, we asserted fair use, beat back the bogus legal threat, and had the video restored. Well, UMG is at... Read More
Melting.
So much for all that sound and 2.0 fury about the CNN/YouTube Democrat presidential debate. The ratings are in and they are not impressive. Inside Cable News reports: Next time: More talking snowman, less Anderson Cooper. *** Gerard Vanderleun dubs it "1984 in reverse:" CNN and YouTube (Google) made sure to milk this moment for...

What is fair use?
Julie Hilden has a thoughtful analysis comparing Hot Air's fair use victory over UMG/YouTube with gossip blogger Perez Hilton's legal battle with a photography site, x17. Read it at FindLaw. (Background here and here.)
The Hot Air video report on Akon that Universal Music Group didn't want you to see is now back up on YouTube. That's right. The music giant and the video-sharing site (who happen to be "strategic partners") have backed down: We originally posted the Hot Air report to YouTube on May 2. On May 3,... Read More
Gone. This morning, I linked to the YouTube version of our Hot Air show exposing hip-hop misogynist Akon. The YouTube version is no longer available. This is the message you will now see: "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Universal Music Group." We believe our commentary and criticism of... Read More
You've already seen the stories about the Obama-linked video consultant who was unmasked as the creator the anti-Hillary Big Sister ad. Here's his confessional at HuffPo, "I made the 'Vote Different' Ad:" Translation: Hire me, nutroots! I'm available. Maybe Arianna's already put in a bid. Quite an impressive resume. He is, after all, Time's 2006... Read More
Well, this is an interesting twist. YouTube, known in these parts for banning those who insult Islam, is now being banned for carrying videos that insult Turkey: A court in Turkey on Wednesday ordered blockage of all access to YouTube, the popular video-sharing Web site, over a video deemed insulting to Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the...

There's a new member of the Banned By YouTube club. He's Nick Gisburne, an atheist who posts videos criticizing religion. He had no trouble uploading anti-Christian monologues to YouTube. But when he criticized Islam by quoting the Koran? YouTube account deleted. (You can seen the banned video at his site.) Here's Gisburne's latest video (not... Read More
Like I said earlier today, information wants to be free. And freedom is something Iran is just not going to tolerate. Via The Guardian (hat tip: Greg Tinti): Greg writes: "There's a good quip to be made about Iran banning The Times I'm sure, but it's evading me at the moment." Indeed, there's something richly...

YouTube (which never seems to respond to e-mail from customers) sent out a cease-and-desist letter to top tech blogger Michael Arrington of TechCrunch: Buried in my email this evening I found a cease and desist letter from an attorney at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, representing their client YouTube. We’ve been accused of a number... Read More
Jihadists do it. Why not gang-bangers? (via Boston Herald/hat tip - Brian Maloney) So much
An unhinged anti-Bush conspiracy piece on YouTube posted by one Mike McIntee claims that the White House doctored the video of Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech. Here it is: It was uploaded the day before the election and has received nearly 200,000 visits and counting, plus countless honors. The problem is that this "Bush Lied!" propaganda... Read More
Lavish praise for YouTube from Time magazine: "Millions of people can entertain, educate, shock, rock and grok"--except, of course, if you want to wage war on jihadists. Via Ragnar at The Jawa Report, who snuck an anti-jihad video through YouTube: Broadcast your jihad! Terrorists agree: YouTube rocks! Check out Slate's video history of YouTube. I'm... Read More
The Washington Times takes up the fight. The dynamic Brigitte Gabriel talks about YouTube and jihad here. Ragnar at the Jawa Report is doing battle. Noel Sheppard reports on YouTube, Google, and the Liberal Bias Virus. The good news: The conservative YouTubers group now numbers nearly 4,000. The bad: We still are trailing the Bush... Read More

Tom Zeller Jr. at the New York Times saw fit to write about the jihad vs. anti-jihad battle at YouTube today. Not only does he appear to agree that banning "First, They Came" was a bad idea, but he also, unlike his colleague Virginia Heffernan (who inspired my new tagline), manages to cover the story...

If you've had an anti-jihad video pulled from YouTube, feel free to sport the badge on your site (thanks to AllahPundit). I like the Jawa Report's take on a new YouTube logo, too (credit Ragnar). Welcome to AllahTube: That one's very appropriate given today's piece in the NYTimes on the proliferation of jihadi propaganda on... Read More
Back in February, you may remember, I cobbled together a little mini-movie called "First, They Came" inspired by the Mohammed Cartoon riots. It's a simple slideshow highlighting the victims of Islamic violence over the years. We posted it at YouTube a while ago. No problems. Until last week, when I received this e-mail: I asked...
