PragerU censored by video platform


(Natural News) The often-censored Prager University has been dropped from service by yet another technology company, apparently because of its conservative, pro-American educational videos that it says have attracted more than 5 billion views over 10 years.

New York-based JW Player, which claims to "have a global footprint of over 1 billion unique users," kicked the nonprofit off its video hosting platform, while it continues to serve left-wing media outlets The Young Turks and Vice, which generate videos that, according to PragerU, divide the country and teach young people to resent America.

The move came after JW Player blindsided PragerU, claiming to have updated its "community guidelines," after which it decided not to renew the annual service contract, claiming without providing any evidence that "PragerU's content is misleading."

"In true cowardly fashion, JW Player has refused to give us specifics and opted to hide behind third-party 'fact-checkers' to get rid of us," Marissa Streit, CEO of PragerU, said in a statement.

Craig Strazzeri, PragerU's chief marketing officer, elaborated in an interview.

In 2016, "YouTube really started censoring our videos and restricting hundreds of our videos," he told The Epoch Times. "We decided we needed to gain some independence on our website."
