YouTube Gets Censory

If you haven’t heard as yet, Sharyl Attkisson has a new Sunday morning news program called “Full Measure.” Attkisson is probably the last actual journalist working in television news. Her hard-hitting coverage of the IRS Scandal and Benghazi put her on the map, and also got her forced out of CBS News (where the news director is brother to Obama Administration hack Ben Rhodes). Attkisson was investigated by the Justice Department after her revealing stories about the IRS Scandal and Benghazi took off. They even tapped into her computer.

Nice, huh?

Who said the Obama Administration doesn’t appreciate the First Amendment freedom of the press?

Any old how. Attkisson’s “Full Measure” segments had their own YouTube channel until yesterday.

The video that started the kerfuffle was this one.

So a report on how photojournalism has lost its credibility gets the YouTube people all hot under the collar?

Why?

At least Sharyl is keeping a good sense of humor over it.

I can’t help but wonder if the reason YouTube got all censory over “Full Measure” has more to do with the fact that Attkisson has been shining a bright light on media manipulation of the message.

Not a particularly helpful thing for the Enslaved Press during a presidential election year.

Check out this ten-minute video of Sharyl at a TEDx event at the University of Nevada:

As George Orwell put it, “In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

Update
Sharyl Attkisson tweeted out the Full Measure’s YouTube Channel has been restored. YouTube claimed it was taken down by mistake.

    ‘probably the last actual journalist working in television news’ Agreed. Jake Tapper’s done some good work, but I haven’t heard much from him since he went over to the Dark Side of CNN.

    Excellent post Dianny. Sharyl Attkisson really takes her job seriously. We definately need more like her.
