Dear friends, you can find all SouthFront videos on our website in the section “SouthFront TV“.

SouthFront’s YouTube Channel Is Banned (the text below was originally posted by SouthFront on May 2):

DEAR FRIENDS,

On April 30th, our Facebook page with about 100,000 subscribers was deleted without any warnings or an opportunity to file an appeal. (LINK)

Now, the situation appears to be even worse.

On May 1st, YouTube terminated all of South Front’s channels, with approximately 170,000 subscribers. Our YouTube channels were also terminated without any warnings or notifications. The main YouTube channel in English had over 152,000 subscribers, 1,900 uploaded videos and approximately 60 million views.

The termination of our channels occurred regardless of the fact that our YouTube channels had zero active strikes. Covering conflicts in the Middle East, we expressly understand the inherent sensitivity of the issue. Therefore, we have strictly followed YouTube’s Community Guidelines and have always complied with the Terms of Service.

SouthFront’s YouTube channels were terminated without any warning. All that we got was a single automated email regarding the termination of our inactive channel in Farsi “SouthFront Farsi” that included several translations of our war reports. However, even this email provides no details regarding the decision and just claims that “SouthFront Farsi” violated YouTube’s Terms of Service without any elaboration.

Throughout the past five years of our endeavors, South Front has been constantly subjected to pressure from different Euro-Atlantic structures and US tech companies that hold a monopoly on the dissemination of information. We have repeatedly faced attempts to censor our coverage of world events, in the form of written analysis, videos and livestream interviews. (LINKLINKLINK)

The only reasonable explanation, we may imagine, is that US authorities ordered YouTube and Facebook to cleanse the media sphere of sources of objective coverage and analysis on the Middle East region as a part of the ongoing preparations for a war with Iran. (LINK)

We think that the current situation deserves attention of the international public, including the journalistic community beyond individual ambitions of separate media organizations and journalists.

  1. It is a monopoly issue. The problem here in the US, is the allowance of excessive market share to individual companies. In the past, we had equal time measures in place in all msm for political candidates. That is no longer the case. We had laws and regulations preventing monopolies, and that is no longer the case. The grey area here, is when a corporation is technically not a complete monopoly, but holds a massively large percentage of market share, and still wants editorial freedoms afforded individual publishers. YT and Google and Amazon and FB, need to be broken up and held to less than 25 % market share. Period. Likewise, msm should be regulated preventing any majority stranglehold on the offerings to the public. This would maintain the proper life death cycle of business and prevent excessive power.
