Dennis Prager who owns PragerU, a conservative digital media organization, is suing YouTube and its parent company, Google, over alleged censorship of their videos. The lawsuit claims that it gets more than 30 million visitors a day on YouTube, making the site so elemental to free speech in the digital age that it should be treated as a public forum, and adhere to laws governing free speech, instead of its own discretion. YouTube has repeatedly censored PragerU on their platform, restricting political video, and the company removed a video of “a Muslim man describing how he was raised to be anti-Semitic,” branding the video as “hate speech.” PragerU publishes conservative JudeoChristian material and says conservatives routinely face censorship. -GEG

PragerU, the conservative digital media organization from Dennis Prager, is suing YouTube and its parent Google over alleged censorship of their videos.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the lawsuit, which was filed on Monday, “says YouTube’s more than 30 million visitors a day make the site so elemental to free speech in the digital age that it should be treated as a public forum.”

“The suit argues the site must use the ‘laws governing free speech,’ not its own discretion, to make decisions about what to censor,” they reported, adding that PragerU “alleges that by limiting access to some of its videos without clear criteria YouTube is infringing on PragerU’s First Amendment rights.”

YouTube has repeatedly censored PragerU on their platform, labeling political videos as “restricted” adult content and even removing a video of “a Muslim man describing how he was raised to be anti-Semitic,” branding the video as “hate speech.”

After being criticized for their censorship of PragerU videos, YouTube blamed “community flagging.”
