“Tech Giant Censorship Reaches”

Last October, Project Censored cosponsored an online academic conference examining content censorship by tech giants, among other media issues. The proceedings of the conference were uploaded to You Tube and utilized by scholars and media-studies instructors at various institutions. But in December, the conference’s You Tube channel disappeared, without notice or explanation. Today’s Project Censored Show examines the apparent “deplatforming” of the conference by You Tube,
as well as the broader issue of media censorship by private entities such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and Zoom.
Nolan Higdon teaches history and media studies at California State University, East Bay, and was one of the organizers of the 2020 Critical Media Literacy Conference of the Americas.
Alan MacLeod is a media scholar and a senior staff writer at Mint Press News. He wrote an article for Mint Press about his efforts to determine how the Media Conference material disappeared from You Tube:
