To support last night's comments regarding message-suppression on the Internet, here's a screenshot of our last night's podcast archive side by side, one on YouTube, one on BitChute. The YouTube upload occurred approximately one hour prior to the BitChute upload. They both were promoted via exactly the same sources. The YouTube account is one of long standing, associated with a ten year old media platform; the BitChute account effectively began four months ago.
Notice the view count differences?
YouTube's AI immediately "restricted" the archive for no apparent TOS reason. The impact and logical purpose is self-evident. For those unfamiliar with the "side-effects" of being "restricted," (shadow banning) please feel free to ask.
