Over 300 Trump Campaign Ads Taken Down By Google and Youtube


According to a recently released report by 60 Minutes, over 300 President Trump 2020 campaign ads were taken down by Google and Youtube for "violating" their terms of service.

The reporters couldn't find any apparent reason why the ads were taken down. “We found very little transparency in the transparency report,” 60 Minutes said.

Check out what CBS News reported:

60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl asked Wojcicki, “Have you taken down any of President Trump’s ads at all?” YouTube’s CEO responded, “There are ads of President Trump that were not approved to run on Google or YouTube.” When pressed for an example, Wojcicki added, “Well, they’re available in our transparency report.”

In response to concerns raised after the 2016 election cycle, Google and YouTube, like Facebook, keep a searchable archive of political ads that have run on the site.

60 Minutes reviewed the archive to learn more about President Trump’s problematic political ads. We found that over 300 video ads were taken down by Google and YouTube, mostly over the summer, for violating company policy. But the archive doesn’t detail what policy was violated. Was it copyright violation? A lie or extreme inaccuracy? Faulty grammar? Bad punctuation? It’s unclear. The ads determined to be offending are not available to be screened. We found very little transparency in the transparency report.

The Trump campaign has strongly condemned the social media platforms for their constant censorship ahead of the 2020 election.

In late November, Google announced that they would stop allowing advertisers to use voting data to make their ads.

“We’re limiting election ads audience targeting to the following general categories: age, gender, and general location (postal code level),” said a Google spokesman. “Political advertisers can, of course, continue to do contextual targeting, such as serving ads to people reading or watching a story about, say, the economy.”

President Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale made sure to shred Google in a tweet, noting how the rule change with "lead directly to suppressing voter turnout."

“There can be no denying that President Trump and his campaign have built the greatest digital operation in all of politics, and that Google’s decision will disproportionately impact both the Trump operation and all of the Republican candidates and organizations that derive strength from it,” the attached statement read.

“What’s more, given the growing and documented cases of anti-conservative bias in Silicon Valley, we are highly skeptical that such a ban would be applied equally to conservative and liberal organizations.”

“Google has made an extraordinarily poor decision which will lead to less-informed voters, lower voter engagement, and voter suppression,” the statement finished, urging Google to “immediately reverse its decision.”
