Prominent lawyer Harmeet Dhillon spoke to Tucker Carlson about Big Tech's interference in the 2020 general election. She said that, in what she believed to be a violation of federal election regulations, Facebook and Google sent reminders to vote only to Democrats.

"They want to shame people," she said.

"Silicon Valley is trying to destroy the evidence of their own misdeeds," Carlson said.

To Tucker Carlson, YouTube’s new policy of election fraud video removal seems to conveniently cover the potential cracks in the Nov. 3 election for the Presidency and stops an ongoing political conversation on election integrity.

YouTube, the world’s largest video platform and the second most-used search engine, began to remove user content claiming that the president-elect Biden had won the 2020 election as a result of fraud, counting errors, or election irregularities.

The removal policy, which went into effect on Dec. 9, states that the platform will actively remove content that discourages or undermines the validity of the election process or that seeks to mislead viewers about the voting system. YouTube released a statement on Wednesday, explaining their decision:

"We started applying our Presidential Election Integrity policy to the 2020 U.S. presidential election, meaning we remove content that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election uploaded on or after December 9. As we ramp up our enforcement we'll remove violative videos without giving a strike."

It's a decision Carlson sees as blatant mishandling of YouTube’s widespread influence.

The policy’s implementation comes on the US "safe harbor deadline"—the date by which state level election audits and recounts are supposed to have been completed. At this point, officials across the country have finalized the vote in virtually every state. This, YouTube argues, means the conversation about the validity of the election is over.

If video creators want to blame the outcome of the 2020 election on voter fraud, they will have to do it someplace else.

Where onlookers like Josh Hawley, the junior Senator from Missouri, see an attack on the First Amendment, YouTube states that its new policies are merely attempting to protect its audiences from misinformation.

This isn't the first time YouTube has removed videos on account of misleading or speculative information. The platform has removed more than 8,000 channels since the beginning of September.
