Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, August 12, 2017

If you get your news from mostly far left sources, chances are you've heard YouTube and Google are censoring or blacklisting left and progressive sites and content. Conversely, if you get your news from far right sources, chances are you've heard YouTube and Google are censoring their content as well. If you want to know which side is being truthful in trying to expose their censorship, it is both of them.

In the last week, we've witnessed a massive crackdown on alternative media -- the likes of which are unprecedented. Quite literally overnight, YouTube issued a sweeping update and demonetized thousands of video in accounts across all political spectrums.

Those who challenge the corporate government paradigm are being lumped in with extremist groups and being flagged as hate speech. Sadly, only those who get their information from these alternative sources who are unafraid of challenging the oligarchy will even know this is happening.

It takes years of hard work to build a platform that is able to break through the static shoved out by the mainstream media and reach people still plugged into the matrix. However, once they see the establishment for what it is, this cannot be unseen. The powers that be know this and appear to be moving in to stop it.

Imagine if you never came across alternative media that challenged your thought process and made you question the government. Imagine if you never ‘woke up' to the atrocities committed by the state on a daily basis. Imagine where you'd be right now without that information. Now, imagine that information is snubbed out forever. Is that a world you want to live in?

And... now the right wing alternative media is complaining about it, too. Heh, I wonder if google will come after the crazy wing, like Alex Jones.

And who is giving these orders to google? What is the reason for cracking down on dissenting opinion on the internet? I blame fallout from the RussiaGate "fake news" scandal. Only, I've always considered RussiaGate itself to be a conspiracy theory, like WMD in Iraq, because no evidence for it has been presented, and now there is evidence showing the DNC leak source to be an insider, and that Guciffer 2.0 is not real.

Jesus Christ rat, give up the no evidence argument it is patently ridiculous. Donald Jr's email is prima facie evidence of collusion and scandal.

Bill Maher hit the nail on the head last night when he said if Jr. received an email saying someone had child porn and he said hell yes and met with them, it would be a crime.

Jr. did exactly what the criminals on To Catch a Thief do. He conversed with people on line about a criminal activity and went to meet with them for the criminal activity. Just change sex with a 12 year old with collusion.

#3 How is what Donald Jr. did evidence that Russia is interfering in our elections? The meeting was a bait-and-switch: Donald Jr. was told they had damage information on Hillary, but when he got there they didn't. All they wanted to do was talk about ending sanctions. There was no dirt on Hillary.

And this proves Donald Trump colluded with Russia to hack the DNC? Dude, that is what Hillary wants you to think, because it deflects from her stealing the primaries. So it was the Russians, and not a Bernie Bro!

And you know it was a bait and switch because? Oh, yeah, because Don Jr. said so. And yet, according to the article you posted earlier, three days after the meeting in Trump Tower, Assange announced he did indeed have dirt on Hillary and would be publishing it:

"On June 12 last year, Julian Assange announced that WikiLeaks had and would publish documents pertinent to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign."

#6 You do know that the DNC is being sued by it's own base because it broke it's own guidelines to support Hillary but not Bernie, right?

But HillBotCorky has to stand up for the War Goddess and Bank Puppet!

#5 Coincidence much? You're saying that Trump Jr. did indeed get dirt on Hillary from the Russians, and that he gave it Wikileaks? Prove it.

It seems to me that all of RussiaGate is built on appearances and outright lies, like CrowdStrike the phishing malware it found was Russian, or that the malware was responsible for downloading the DNC e-mails.

And then there is the narrative that Russia hacked our voting systems. Where did it come from? Hillary. Because the NSA said it couldn't prove that it was Russia in a statement posted on the internet in 2016. It was probable just ordinary hackers looking for name, address, and partial SSN.

The whole damn RussiaGate conspiracy comes from Hillary.

No, I don't think Don Jr got dirt on Hillary from the Russians. I think they told him that they/WikiLeaks had the emails and that the dirt was coming. (Maybe they gave him a few highlights.) Some have suggested they told Don Jr the dirt they had on his dad. I don't know, and neither to you. You may take Don Jr's s word for what went down at that meeting (I don't), but you can't prove he is telling the truth. At the very least: trust but verify. That's what I trust Mueller will do.

IMO What they are doing is very very worrisome.... Both political sides are guilty of setting up and continuing the policies, that allow this.

#13 IMHO, the 6 billionaires that control 90% of the media are only interested in saving the oligarchy. If you want to know what's really wrong with our country, you need to read right, left, and weird alternative media. That's how I came to the conclusion that the oligarchy is the problem (and Hillary is a Reptoid).

Well said and I agree. Ok except for the HRC part she's kinda leathery, slimmy, old and cold blooded but Idk about Reptoid.

Youtube isn't nearly as entertaining now as it used to be.

Fortunately, the internet is largely unregulated and while Google and Youtube are the biggest players, they are not the only ones. All this type of thing does is create a market for new competitors.
