Steve Bannon’s YouTube channel, which hosts his “War Room” podcast, was scrubbed Friday evening, making him one of the latest victims in the mass social media purge underway since Wednesday night.
Speaking to TheWrap, a YouTube spokesperson stated that “in accordance with our strikes system, we have terminated Steve Bannon’s channel ‘War Room’ and one associated channel for repeatedly violating our Community Guidelines.”
“As we said yesterday, any channel posting new videos with misleading content that alleges widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election in violation of our policies will receive a strike, a penalty which temporarily restricts uploading or live-streaming. Channels that receive three strikes in the same 90-day period will be permanently removed from YouTube,” said the spokesman.
Twitter user @GraduatedBen said that Bannon’s channel was banned in the middle of a live episode.
