HARRISBURG – YouTube has taken down a recorded live-stream video of PA Family Institute’s Gubernatorial Candidate Forum held last Thursday evening near Philadelphia. The two-hour forum broadcast over a Philadelphia radio station and via live-stream featured seven GOP primary candidates for PA governor. In an email to PA Family Institute, YouTube stated, “Our team has reviewed your content, and, unfortunately, we think it violates our misinformation policy. We’ve removed the following content from YouTube.” PA Family Institute President Michael Geer said, “YouTube offered no specifics of what is alleged to be in violation, beyond indicating that it had to do with content related to the 2020 presidential election. That election was not mentioned in our questions, and we can only conclude that the YouTube censors did not like the answers given by one or more of the candidates.” Geer called the action by YouTube “a blatant assault on free speech, free elections, on the ability of candidates to freely state their views, and on the right of citizens to hear the varied perspectives of those who are seeking their votes.” PA Family Institute is appealing the decision.
