YouTube censors Brazilian president’s videos over Covid misinformation concerns
YouTube has censored Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaros channel, removing 15 videos from public view on Wednesday for violating the companys content policies by spreading misinformation about Covid-19.
The YouTube channel features regular videos of national addresses, as well as conversations with ministers, former officials, and medical professionals, with the president personally having expressed his critical views of lockdowns, mask wearing, and vaccination programs.
One of the videos removed by YouTube featured the country’s former health minister, Eduardo Pazuello, comparing Covid-19 to Aids, declaring that “Post-HIV pandemic, HIV continues to exist. There are still some who are contaminated, most are treated, and life goes on.”
Another censored post concerned a doctor who recommended that Covid patients be given hydroxychloroquine, a treatment that has not been independently proven to be effective against the disease.
The tech company confirmed that the decision had been taken to remove the videos due to a violation of its content policies, rather than for a political or ideological disagreement with the Brazilian leader.
