Brian Kilmeade criticizes YouTube for eradicating claims Trump received the election from his platform
Brian Kilmeade, presenter of Fox and Friends, criticized YouTube after the streaming platform announced that it would cancel claims contesting President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 elections.
The announcement of the YouTube guidelines came after the “Safe Harbor” period had expired, when enough states had confirmed their findings to determine that Biden was the president-elect.
“With that in mind, we will begin to remove any content uploaded today (or later) that is misleading people by claiming that widespread fraud or error is driving the 2020 US presidential election outcome in line with our approach to historic US presidential election have changed. “The company wrote on its Wednesday blog.
“For example, we will be removing videos claiming that a presidential candidate won the election due to widespread software problems or counting errors. We will start enforcing this policy today and step up in the coming weeks. As always, messages and comments on these topics can remain on our website if that is sufficient Education, Documentation, Science or Art Context, ”added the company.
Still, Kilmeade accused the streaming platform of bias.
“You know, Big Tech, YouTube is on the cutting edge to decide not to post a conversation or post about election fraud on YouTube. I don’t think I have a chance to have this segment and I was fortunate enough to interview these two attorneys general [sic] go to YouTube, ”he said, referring to interviews with several attorneys general who filed lawsuits to dismiss the election results.
“But seriously, it’s amazing how much these tech companies take the income and are biased because they just want the result. The result is that Joe Biden is president. “

The Supreme Court this week denied a motion to ditch certified ballot papers for Biden, Pennsylvania. A lawsuit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to invalidate election results in key swing states was ridiculed as political theater to gain the president’s favor.
Paxton has made headlines in the past few weeks for its significant legal troubles. He was accused charged with securities fraud and bribery on charges of abusing his power in office. Meanwhile, President Trump has pardoned a number of different officials – including his three eldest children – before leaving office as he faces legal danger of his own after leaving office on Jan.
